IDeaS and Cenium's Two-Way Data Integration Enables Hoteliers to Eliminate Manual Processes and Increase Operational Effectiveness

USA, Minneapolis, Minnesota. September 15, 2020

IDeaS and Cenium announced today a product integration that enables guest data from Cenium's property management system (PMS) to automatically flow into IDeaS revenue management solutions. This partnership allows hotels and resorts to optimize revenue, gain control of the entire guest journey and make staff processes more efficient.

Cenium seamlessly integrates with IDeaS to provide a real-time transfer of reservations and group transactional data by room type. IDeaS will automatically transfer pricing and minimum length-of-stay controls to Cenium, eliminating manual processes and increasing operational effectiveness while maximizing profitability.

  • Eases selling strategies - Easy upsell and cross-sell of innovative lodging solutions, conferences, meeting rooms and activities for one location or multi-property.
  • Total revenue optimization - Cenium integrates PMS, sales and catering, as well as activities, tickets and rentals, hence the combined solution covers all revenue streams at any complex resort, at a single location or across multiple properties.
  • Highly configurable - This fully configurable solution delivers flexible pricing, products and packages through an intuitive user interface. It can be tailored around specific guest categories, customers or groups and easily integrates with the finance system to provide hoteliers full financial control.

Michael Ramm Ostgaard, CEO, Cenium AS, said: "We are truly excited to partner with IDeaS, enabling further revenue optimization and operational effectiveness for our customers. Hospitality is all about partnerships. We at Cenium want to partner with the best and most relevant solution providers in the industry, so joining forces with the best revenue management provider is a great milestone for us."

Revenue Management: Monetizing All Offerings


Of all the departments within hotel operations, Revenue Management may have been the hardest hit, due to the pandemic. The logic goes - no revenue, no need for revenue managers - so many industry professionals were furloughed. If business rebounds in 2021, as expected, then hotel management will have to determine when prevailing occupancy levels justify bringing back their revenue management team. Also, the pandemic seems to have exposed some weaknesses in the traditional RevPAR models. There is a growing understanding that it is no longer sufficient to use a "revenue per available room" model; instead, hotels are adopting a TRevPAR model (total revenue per available room). This model recognizes that revenue streams from other departments are just as important as the revenue gained from rooms. As a result, hotels are looking at ways to monetize any and all hotel offerings - from dining outlets and spas to outdoor function spaces and local partnerships. 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.
