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."

Eco-Friendly Practices: Creative Innovation

Being eco-friendly is no longer a fad. It is an urgent planetary need and hotels are actively doing their part to reduce their carbon footprint by implementing sustainable, green practices. In addition to the goodwill derived from doing the right thing, hotels are also realizing the benefits to their business. A large percentage of Millennials expect hotels to be eco-friendly and will only patronize those properties that are proudly conforming. Consequently, more hotels are realizing that sustainability is a key element in a successful branding strategy. In addition, going green can lead to a more profitable bottom line, as savings on electricity, water and cleaning materials can add up. Also, there are other advantages that come with being an eco-friendly business, such as government subsidies and tax and loan incentives. As a result, many hotels are finding innovative ways to integrate eco-friendly practices into their business. Geo-thermal energy systems, along with energy-from-waste systems, are being used to heat and cool the property. Passive solar panels, green roofs, natural lighting and natural ventilation strategies also assist in energy conservation. Low-flow water systems and plumbing fixtures make a contribution, as does eco-friendly hardwood flooring, and energy efficient televisions and appliances throughout the property. In addition, some hotels have implemented in-room recycling programs, and only provide all-natural, personal care items. One hotel has actually constructed a bee-keeping operation on their grounds. Not only is this good for the bees but the hotel also produces products from the operation which they sell. This kind of creative innovation also holds enormous appeal to guests. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable practices into their operations and how they are benefiting from them.
