USA, Hoboken, New Jersey. October 12, 2020

Volan Technology, the authority in AI-based workplace safety and contact tracing software, and dormakaba, the global leader in hotel access solutions, today announce a revolutionary partnership. A first-ever integration, Volan's state-of-the art micro-location positioning and emergency response technology has been combined with dormakaba's access control systems creating the most advanced enterprise safety and security solution on the market. Hotel and facility operators will now have the capabilities to view their entire staff's locations to quickly respond in the case of an emergency, run precise contact tracing and rostering reports on thousands of people and rooms in seconds, and automatically lock and unlock entry points saving critical minutes in emergency response time, all with one portable device.

Volan's safety technology provides private and precise real-time 3D location positioning of thousands of people using the Volan Positioning System™ (VPS). The patent-pending AI technology and encrypted data is executed with zero dependency on smartphones, GPS or Wi-Fi, making it highly accurate, secure and protective of the privacy of users. A neural mesh network with geofencing capabilities, VPS enables hotels, schools and other large properties to immediately implement safety measures ensuring unmatched security, reliability and quality.

"As a hotelier for over 30 years, the incorporation of new technology with existing hardware and software platforms is an enormous benefit and creates much-needed efficiencies in hotel operations," said Shannon McCallum, Vice President of Hospitality for Volan Technology. "To have RFID capabilities embedded into the VPS sensor provides vital solutions for staff safety and creates exciting possibilities for the future of guest security as well."

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.
