Outrigger Hospitality Group Announces 'Outrigger's Clean Commitment' Developed With Ecolab

Outrigger Introduces New Cleanliness Protocols and Technology for Property Re-Openings in Response to Covid-19

USA, Honolulu, Hawaii. June 02, 2020

Outrigger Hospitality Group today announced its commitment to providing an elevated standard of cleanliness and safety in preparation for the anticipated re-opening of its beach resort properties.

Outrigger's Clean Commitment guidelines were designed in consultation with healthcare leaders and developed with Ecolab - the global leader in hospitality cleaning, sanitising programmes and solutions. It also meets the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA) ‘Stay Safe' enhanced industry-wide hotel cleaning standards.

The global platform incorporates state-of-the-art technology, cleaning products and procedures in compliance with the latest COVID-19 codes, regulations and brand standards. The programme applies to all areas of Outrigger operations, including: host training, social and physical distancing, surface cleaning and disinfecting, general housekeeping, maintenance and overall host and guest health.

"Outrigger has always prioritized a rigorous cleaning protocol to help ensure the wellbeing of our guests and hosts; working closely with our longtime partner Ecolab, Outrigger's Clean Commitment delivers enhanced and consistent sanitation standards across all of our properties," said Jeff Wagoner President and CEO of Outrigger Hospitality Group.

"For more than 70 years, Outrigger has offered an oasis for guests around the globe - when the time is right, we look forward to safely welcoming them back to our island homes."

Chip Rogers, President and CEO of AHLA said: "While hotels have always employed demanding cleaning standards, this new initiative will ensure greater transparency and confidence throughout the entire hotel experience."

He added: "The industry's enhanced hotel cleaning practices, social interactions, and workplace protocols will continue to evolve to meet the new health and safety challenges and expectations presented by COVID-19."

Outrigger's Clean Commitment is rooted in The Outrigger Way - the guiding ethos that captures Outrigger's tradition of hospitality and mutual respect for host, guest and place.

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.
