IDeaS Named "RMS Platform of The Year" in Inaugural 2023 Traveltech Breakthrough Awards Program

Prestigious Annual Awards Program Recognizes Standout Travel Technology Companies, Products, and Services Around The World

USA, Minneapolis, Minnesota. May 24, 2023

IDeaS Revenue Solutions, the world's leading provider of automated revenue management software and services, has been selected as "RMS Platform of the Year" in the inaugural TravelTech Breakthrough Awards program conducted by TravelTech Breakthrough. This leading independent market intelligence organization evaluates and recognizes standout travel technology companies, products, and services around the globe.

  • IDeaS Function Space Revenue Management (FSRM), a module to G3 RMS - The module provides powerful automated meetings and events (M&E) forecasts, interactive demand calendars, profit-based price evaluation, and displacement capabilities. Powerful analytics optimize the profits of a hotel's most critical revenue streams for guest rooms, room rental, food & beverage, group costs, and ancillary spend.
  • Quick insights into trends and patterns - The FSRM dashboard, released in 2022, provides quick insights into trends and patterns related to function space business. The dashboard prioritizes a user's tasks and shows where they have improved. Detailed graphs show what portion of function space utilization contributes to sales and catering revenue streams. This allows users to easily evaluate their property's performance year over year and gauge how well they are achieving targets. Users can also use this for budgeting purposes, to compare what is on the books versus what has been done in the past.
  • View utilization to drive more business - Another key component of the dashboard allows users to view utilization by week and target underutilized times to drive more business and protect busier periods. Users can use the visual heat map to quickly detect patterns by room and day parts to see which function space rooms, times, or days are in the most demand or utilization.

Sanjay Nagalia, co-founder, chief operating officer and technology officer, IDeaS, said: "We are thrilled to be among the 2023 TravelTech award winners. Our top priorities are sustainable growth, profitability, and satisfaction within the hospitality industry. We understand that hotels with group business and function space offerings have an exciting opportunity to increase the value of those revenue streams. We know and understand our customers' challenges and will continue to innovate and provide tailored solutions to them. From our M&E industry experts to our data scientists, we seek to lead every initiative with a client-centric approach to providing services and support you can count on."

Bryan Vaughn, managing director of TravelTech Breakthrough Awards, said: "Meetings and events are predicted to exceed 2019 levels in 2023. Because of this, capitalizing on often underutilized M&E space is more important than ever, especially since this segment can represent 60 percent of overall revenue for hotels. Hospitality organizations need to get smarter with their space. How often do sellers at venues receive a great inquiry only to find the meeting space was booked earlier for a lower revenue value? Function-space revenue management technology can be a game-changer. IDeaS FSRM allows hotels to make confident, data-driven decisions to maximize profit for function space and group guest rooms. The information provided is imperative for budgeting and identifying areas for strategy improvement. Congratulations to IDeaS on being our pick for 2023's ‘RMS Platform of the Year!'"

Hotel Revenue Management: The Age of Big Data

The future of hotel revenue management lies in the adoption of ever more sophisticated software and technology, especially as it pertains to forecasting and pricing. For revenue professionals, the Age of Big Data has arrived. Managers are utilizing systems that employ leading-edge algorithms and machine learning, along with business analytics and data visualization tools. These tools communicate complex information more effectively, allowing managers to understand the key components driving demand and revenue. They have the ability to analyze real-time external and internal data, produce reports, and integrate information - all on a single platform - in order to improve performance. Managers are also utilizing  geographic information systems (GIS) which incorporate geographic data into forecasting. GIS also help decision-makers identify information in a visual way that cannot be detected through traditional data analysis. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on how some hotels are integrating Big Data into their revenue management strategies.
