Onyx Centersource Launches Breakthrough Hospitality Business Insights Platform

USA , Dallas , Texas. March 05, 2019

Onyx CenterSource today introduced a full suite of analytic data services designed to assist its clients across the industry in boosting earnings by optimizing their distribution strategies.

Onyx's new analytic data services platform enables hotels to better understand their business performance in key areas, both historically and compared to industry benchmarks. Through the tool, hotels can view snapshots of individual property performance and drill into more detailed views like geographic analysis, variable commission, and operational reporting. Onyx hotel clients can also leverage the platform to better understand the return on investment of their strategic vendor partnerships.

Mark Dubrow, Onyx chief executive officer, said, "Our clients across the industry have chosen Onyx as their hospitality payments partner for over 25 years. Today, we are broadening our capabilities to include an actionable analytics platform that we have developed based on their feedback and input. Our clients told us they needed more accurate, centralized data to understand, assess and make better-informed business decisions. This solution makes those actionable insights readily available to users. We anticipate rolling similar tools out to the agency community soon."

Bill Nicholson, Onyx chief product officer, added, "One way Onyx provides unique value is by aggregating travel agency booking data with hotel client stay data, or consumed information. While other industry reporting services incorporate booking data, almost none include the data on bookings realized. These insights, which are uniquely available through our data platform, allow our hotel and travel agency clients to facilitate more profitable relationships and drive business results. The platform also enhances hotels' access to data across brands and geographic regions in deeper detail."

Sales & Marketing: Selling Experiences

There are innumerable strategies that Hotel Sales and Marketing Directors employ to find, engage and entice guests to their property, and those strategies are constantly evolving. A breakthrough technology, pioneering platform, or even a simple algorithm update can cause new trends to emerge and upend the best laid plans. Sales and marketing departments must remain agile so they can adapt to the ever changing digital landscape. As an example, the popularity of virtual reality is on the rise, as 360 interactive technologies become more mainstream. Chatbots and artificial intelligence are also poised to become the next big things, as they take guest personalization to a whole new level. But one sales and marketing trend that is currently resulting in major benefits for hotels is experiential marketing - the effort to deliver an experience to potential guests. Mainly this is accomplished through the creative use of video and images, and by utilizing what has become known as User Generated Content. By sharing actual personal content (videos and pictures) from satisfied guests who have experienced the delights of a property, prospective guests can more easily imagine themselves having the same experience. Similarly, Hotel Generated Content is equally important. Hotels are more than beds and effective video presentations can tell a compelling story - a story about what makes the hotel appealing and unique. A video walk-through of rooms is essential, as are video tours in different areas of a hotel. The goal is to highlight what makes the property exceptional, but also to show real people having real fun - an experience that prospective guests can have too. The June Hotel Business Review will report on some of these issues and strategies, and examine how some sales and marketing professionals are integrating them into their operations.
