Is revenue management stuck in a rut?

Hoteliers who are unwilling to invest in the latest revenue management technologies are the ones “stuck in the rut.” Less than 5% of independent hoteliers have a revenue management system (RMS) in place, many branded hoteliers are stuck with their hotel chain's less than adequate RMS technology.
