Les Hotels Baverez Selects IDeaS Revenue Solutions to Boost Competitiveness in Paris

Five-Star Hotel Group to Use the Market's Most Sophisticated RMS Solution to Increase Efficiency and Profitability

United Kingdom, London. July 28, 2020

One of Paris's leading luxury hotel groups, Les Hotels Baverez, has selected IDeaS G3 Revenue Management System (RMS) to improve its forecasting capabilities and boost its competitiveness in Paris.

With three five-star hotels in the French capital, Les Hotels Baverez will implement the market's leading RMS technology to ensure revenue is maximised in all its 233 rooms.

  • Working in an increasingly competitive market - Rising competition within the luxury segment of the Paris market highlighted the importance of employing a more scientific approach to revenue management. In recent years, Les Hotels Baverez witnessed several local hotels upgrade to four- or five-star premises.
  • Centralising forecasting - Historically, demand forecasting has been a time-consuming task, with revenue managers spending too much time studying individual spreadsheets from each hotel. The implementation of IDeaS G3 RMS will centralise the reporting and forecasting processes and introduce a more refined, efficient and scientific approach to their work.
  • Stress testing pricing strategies - IDeaS G3 RMS will allow the revenue team to test the impact of different pricing strategies using the ‘What If' functionality. By running different theoretical scenarios, they will be able to simulate the impact that pricing, demand, overbooking and wash have on forecast and pricing before introducing a live change.

Laurent Lozano-Carpio, yield manager, Les Hotels Baverez, said: "The ability of IDeaS G3 RMS to instantly produce forecasts based on scientific analysis will give us strategic advantages. In a highly competitive market, IDeaS will give us all the tools to optimise the revenue of our three hotels and to better understand the behaviour of our clients.

Dr. Ravi Mehrotra, president, founder and chief scientist, said: "It's wonderful to see such a prestigious brand as Les Hotels Baverez join the IDeaS family. In today's ultra-competitive hotel environment, every euro counts and the implementation of G3 RMS will play a central role in the company's goal to boost competitiveness and maximise revenue by optimising its business mix."

Hotel Group Meetings: Demand vs. Supply

It is a great time for hotel group meetings. It is expected that once again this sector will grow by 5-10% in 2020, partly due to the increasing value of in-person group meetings. Because people now spend so much time in front of their screens, face-to-face interactions have become a more treasured commodity in our modern world. Plus, the use of social media reinforces the value of engagement, discussion, conversation, and networking - all areas where group meetings shine. Despite this rosy outlook, there is a concern that demand for meetings far exceeds the supply of suitable venues and hotels. There are very few "big box" properties with 500-plus rooms and extensive conference facilities being built, and this shortage of inventory could pose a serious challenge for meeting planners. In addition to location concerns, the role of the meeting planner has also evolved significantly. Planners are no longer just meeting coordinators - they are de facto travel agents. Cultural interactions, local dining, experiential travel, and team-building activities are all now a part of their meeting mix. Plus, they have to cater to evolving tastes. Millennials are insisting on healthier venues and activities, and to meet their demands, hotels are making yoga breaks, fresh-pressed juices, plant-based diets, state-of-the-art gyms, and locally-sourced menus available. Millennials are also insisting that meeting venues practice Corporate Social Responsibility, which means upholding sustainable and ethical values; investment in the local community; health and well-being of employees; and general business practices that reflect being good citizens of the planet. Finally, there is a growing trend to merge meetings with other local events, such as music festivals, sporting events, and cultural attractions. The December Hotel Business Review will report on issues relevant to group meetings and will document what some hotels are doing to support this part of their operations.
