Winners of the 2019 Hotel Tech Awards Announced

Thousands of Top Hoteliers Across More Than 150 Countries Voted to Determine the Best Products for Hoteliers to Grow Their Business in 2019

USA, Los Angeles, California. February 04, 2019

The HotelTechAwards (produced by Hotel Tech Report ) announced the year's top rated hotel technology companies and products based on more than 20,000 hotelier ratings and data-points.

During the HotelTechAwards thousands of hoteliers leave honest reviews of vendor partners across the hotel tech stack. This data is used to identify the best companies based on the judges that matter most - customers.

The competition spans core areas of hotel technology: marketing, revenue, operations and guest experience. 2019 Voting included participation from major hotel groups including: Four Seasons, Movenpick, Hilton, Marriott, Kerry Hotels, Auberge Resorts, Best Western, Accor Hotels, Rosewood and dozens more.

"We're seeing unprecedented disruptive forces impacting the hotel industry today and technology is our only line of defense. Hotels that operate the same way they did even 5 years ago are quickly becoming the fallout of these tectonic shifts," says Jordan Hollander, CEO of Hotel Tech Report.

"The gig economy has brought immense recruiting challenges for hotels, the sharing economy has created similar threats from a competitive perspective and that's not even scratching the surface. Adding fuel to the fire, experts are predicting extremely challenging economic conditions in 2019-2020 - this is the perfect storm. The HotelTechAwards identify the best companies to help hoteliers weather the storm through everything from time saving automation to pricing optimization. Great technology solutions can help hotels bring in more business, operate more efficiently and adapt in a rapidly evolving market."

The HotelTechAwards are often referred to as "the Oscars of Hotel Tech" and winners were selected from more than 180 of the top technology products around the world. The HotelTechAwards are the industry's only data driven awards platform with winners determined not by a handful of judges but by a global community comprised from thousands of verified hotel technology users across more than 120 countries.

Revenue Management: Maximizing Profit

Hotel Revenue Management continues to evolve at a blistering pace. Driven by technological innovation and new distribution channels, there are some dynamic opportunities for expansion in this fast-growing field. The technology is primarily designed to help revenue managers further refine their operations and pricing models to maximize hotel profit. For example, hotels can't be all things to all people, so a key strategy is to precisely identify their target audience. By employing geo-targeting techniques and analyzing behavior such as previous bookings, on-property purchases and online shopping practices, there is an increased capability to define guest demographics. By segmenting customers in more specific ways, hotels are able to create more personalized experiences which, in turn, allow managers to optimize their room rates. It is also an effective way to fulfill the unique needs and preferences of the individual. Another methodology is to consistently monitor the competition's pricing strategies. There are software tools that analyze a competitor's current rates, and then allow a hotel to make its own pricing adjustments. It is also a useful means to conduct forecasting models. Other technologies that are being integrated into a revenue manager's toolkit include Artificial Intelligence in the form of automated algorithms, and Voice Recognition (VR) for data inquiries, rate changes, and booking behavior. Predictive and analytic software programs are also being leveraged to provide more forward-looking data, instead of the usual reliance on historical performance. These metrics allow managers to be more proactive - rather than reactive - with their revenue strategy. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine these developments and report on how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
