IDeaS Extends Platform to Encompass Total Revenue Forecasting Technology, Transforming How Hotels Plan and Budget

Through Automation and Scientific Forecasting, IDeaS Revplan™ Empowers Hotels to Build a Forward-Looking Total Revenue Plan and Budget Based in Data-Driven Reality

USA, Minneapolis, Minnesota. March 05, 2020

IDeaS Revenue Solutions, the world's leading provider of revenue management software and services, announced today IDeaS RevPlan™, a cloud-based module built to complement its flagship RMS products. The module is designed to take the pain out of budgeting and forecasting a hotel's total business, including food and beverage outlets.

Until now, hotels have relied on manual forecasting and data collection to plan operations for their total business. This error-prone, time-consuming process leads to inefficient labor costs, siloed decision-making and smaller profits. Expanding what's possible with revenue science, RevPlan enables revenue managers, finance directors and hotel leaders to effectively budget, plan and strategize using automation and scientific forecasting.

· Total profit optimization - Increases profitability of all revenue streams, from guest rooms to food and beverage, with scientific forecasting for more precise planning.

· Data-driven decisions - Consolidates hotel data at the enterprise level to easily drive more strategic decision-making by revenue stream, region or brand.

· Automated efficiency - Boosts operational efficiencies with automated data collection and intelligence.

Sanjay Nagalia, co-founder and chief operating officer, IDeaS, said: "While others talk about the future of hotel technology, for the past 30 years IDeaS has invented it. Hoteliers face many challenges when it comes to the planning and budgeting of their total business. Essential data is spread out and isolated, the manual process is prone to errors and non-rooms revenue is left on the sidelines. That's why we developed RevPlan, a budgeting and planning solution built for and by hoteliers."

Hotel Law: Protecting Guest Privacy

Every business is obligated to protect their customers from identity theft but unfortunately, data breaches have become all too common. In an effort to protect a guest's right to privacy and to safeguard their personal data, the European Union passed a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that could hold hotels legally liable for any breaches that expose a customer's sensitive personal information. Though the GDPR only pertains to EU citizens' data, any international business that mishandles their data can be legally responsible. Another legal issue of concern is the fight involving hotel "resort fees." Several states attorney generals have recently filed suit against two major hotel chains in an effort to litigate this practice. Their suit alleges that these companies are "engaged in deceptive and misleading pricing practices and their failure to disclose fees is in violation of consumer protection laws." The suit seeks to force the hotel chains to advertise the true price of their hotel rooms. There are several other legal issues that the industry is being forced to address. Sexual harassment prevention in the workplace is still top of mind for hotel employers-particularly in New York and California, which now statutorily require harassment training. Hotels and motels in California will also soon be required to train all their employees on human trafficking awareness. Immigration issues are also of major concern to hotel employers, especially in the midst of a severe labor shortage. The government is issuing fewer H2B visas for low-skilled workers, as well as J-1 visas for temporary workers. Though there is little hope for any comprehensive immigration reform, hotel lobbying groups are actively seeking legal remedies to alleviate this problem. These are just a few of the critical issues that the December issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
