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."

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.
