USA, Phoenix, Arizona. May 21, 2019

IBC Hospitality Technologies, producer of industry-leading software and services designed to help independent accommodations owners and operators more easily manage and market their properties, announced today a direct integration into Google Hotel Search. IBC's hotelier clients will have instant access to accommodations seekers globally. In addition, the integration will provide hoteliers with direct bookings.

"This is an incomparable opportunity for our clients," says Mike Dunklee, CMO of OBASA Hospitality, the parent company of IBC. "Google is one of the most popular places for people to begin their search for accommodations. This better positions our clients to receive more business, and because of their integration with IBC's distribution technology, they can receive more direct bookings from Google to help drive revenue growth and repeat business."

"Existing customers of IBC are already live on Google's Hotel Search and we are actively seeking additional hoteliers who want to benefit from the integration," says Dunklee. "IBC can professionally manage the metasearch of our clients through our proven MetaLogic program. MetaLogic is producing an average of 12:1 ROI for our customers. It also includes retargeting with the shortest look-back period in the industry, so our clients are only being marketed to warm lead candidates and not wasting their precious marketing budget."

Revenue Management: Focus On Profit

Revenue Management is still a relatively new profession within hotel operations and as such, it continues to evolve. One significant trend in this area is a shift away from using revenue as the foundation to generate key performance indicators (KPIs) and to instead place the emphasis on profit. Traditionally, revenue managers have relied on total revenue per available room (TrevPAR) and revenue per available room (RevPAR) as the basis of their KPIs. Now, some revenue managers are using gross operating profit per available room (GOPPAR) as their primary KPI. This puts profit at the center of revenue management strategy, and managers are increasingly searching for new ways to increase the profitability of their hotels. Return on Investment is the objective of any hotel investment, so it is only logical that profitability and ROI will be emphasized going forward. Another trend is an expanded focus on direct hotel bookings. Revenue managers know that one way to increase profitability is to steer guests away from online travel agencies (OTAs) and book directly with the hotel. This tactic also reinforces brand identity and loyalty, and encourages repeat business. In addition, it provides a valuable platform to market the hotel directly to the customer, and to upsell room upgrades or other services to them. Another trend for revenue managers involves automation in their software programs. Revenue management systems with automation are far more desirable than those without it. Automating data entry and logistics increases efficiency, allowing managers to spend more time on formulating strategy. As a bonus, an automated system helps with aggregating and interpreting data. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will address these developments and document how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
