USA, Minneapolis, Minnesota. January 12, 2022

IDeaS, a SAS company, the world's leading provider of hospitality revenue management software and services, announced today it has partnered with Unique Vacations Inc., (UVI) to bring the power of automated revenue science to Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts properties throughout the Caribbean.

Celebrating its 40th anniversary, Sandals Resorts will usher in new resort openings in 2022, including a reimagined Sandals Royal Bahamian, in Nassau, Bahamas on January 27, followed by Sandals Royal Curacao on April 14 and Sandals Dunn's River in Ocho Rios, Jamaica in December.

After re-evaluating its incumbent and other RMS providers, UVI determined IDeaS offered the most robust revenue suite of solutions and innovative roadmap to match its vision for transformational growth and connected commercial success.

  • Automated decision empowerment - UVI will switch revenue management system (RMS) providers to go from rules-based recommendations to the enhanced efficiency and profitability of automated decisions with IDeaS G3 RMS.
  • Change-management support - UVI will engage with IDeaS Consulting, featuring a world-class team of industry experts, to ensure organization-wide adoption, build user confidence and instill an aligned culture of total revenue performance and profitability.
  • Scalable commercial growth - IDeaS G3 RMS is a vital component of the modern hospitality technology ecosystem with data integrations to connect entire commercial organizations. UVI appreciated G3 RMS's versatility, adaptability and ease of use, making it a sound long-term investment with immediate ROI potential.

William Tullmann, vice president of operations and revenue strategy, UVI, said: "Our company has reached an exciting inflection point where our quest for continued innovation will align with cutting-edge automation. These efficiencies will result in an enhanced booking experience for resort customers, and the IDeaS team will play a critical role in this transformation for a more connected commercial future."

Ravi Mehrotra, president, founder and chief scientist, IDeaS, said: "Team IDeaS is thrilled to partner with UVI.

Social Media: Essential Interaction


As important as social media has been to hotels as a way to engage guests and drive direct bookings, it is becoming even more essential for hotels to implement a comprehensive social media strategy. All the major platforms have users numbering in the hundreds of millions - and in some cases, billions of users - so it is imperative for hotels to have an established presence on those massive channels. The goals of social media outreach are relatively clear-cut - identify and interact with current and prospective guests; create a brand voice that resonates with your target demographic; promote products, services, special offers, and contests; and acquire market data to support your business analytics. This is accomplished by creating imaginative and shareable content in order to give your brand maximum visibility, generate bookings, and keep guests interacting with your business throughout the entire customer journey. The February Hotel Business Review will document how some hotels are successfully executing social media strategies for the benefit of their operations.
