Peninsula Hotels Upgrade to OPERA v5.0 and Deploy MICROS OPERA Revenue Management System
World's First Truly Integrated Revenue Management System
"Given our past experience with revenue management solutions, we were very pleased to learn that a revenue management solution was being developed that would be truly and completely embedded in OPERA," stated Shane Izaks, General Manager Information Technology for The Peninsula Hotels. "After the implementation of OPERA RMS at the first two properties, we quickly realized how precise the forecasts are for transient demand, and more importantly the distinct work on group demand handling, which allows us to allocate a precise amount of inventory to transient demand. The fear of incorrectly overbooking the property is virtually eliminated. This is particularly important as the idea of walking a customer from a Peninsula hotel is quite simply unthinkable."
"We have been impressed with the user friendliness of OPERA RMS," continued Mr. Izaks. "Most importantly, because OPERA RMS is built into OPERA PMS and ORS, it has real-time access to all transactional, forecast and historical data, producing a very accurate forecast and rate optimization."
"We are very pleased to expand our partnership with The Peninsula Hotels," stated Stefan Piringer, President of MICROS Asia Pacific. "Peninsula's selection of OPERA RMS is a strong validation of this newest addition to the OPERA enterprise suite of products. Any hotel using OPERA v5.0 would be able to benefit from this application immediately. It is also a renewed vote of confidence from one of our pioneering customers in the Asia/Pacific region which we have had the honor of serving with solutions for more than 15 years."
