Chinese Hoteliers to Receive New Revenue Management Support through IDeaS Expanded Offering
IDeaS commit extra resources to assist Chinese Hoteliers through the economic downturn and to prepare for the eventual market rebound
With a proven history of success in China working with leading international hotel brands – such as the Park Hyatt Shanghai, the China World Hotel, and Shangri-La Shenzhen hotels – IDeaS expansion will help ensure that Chinese hoteliers have greater access to its dedicated consulting division along with a wide range of forecasting and optimization related processes, structures, tasks, and tools that maximizes the revenue of their hotels.
"This enduring commitment from IDeaS to Chinese hoteliers will support the local industry to maximize revenue through the economic downturn, so that these businesses are best positioned to capitalize on stronger levels of demand when the market rebounds." commented Allan Taylor, Regional Director of Sales Asia for IDeaS. "In regards to revenue management and pricing, in China one size or solution does not fit all. IDeaS understands the local market and is uniquely placed to assist all Chinese hoteliers, ranging from those who may require education or process and procedure consultancy – through to simple entry level systems, all the way up to sophisticated Revenue Management and Pricing Systems."
IDeaS is the only revenue management company with a dedicated consulting division – IDeaS Advantage – and full-time Chinese speaking consultants whose sole focus is to assist Hotel Owners and Operators to optimize revenues and profits.
Importantly, IDeaS has been developing a new range of revenue management forecasting solutions and services specifically for the Chinese market. These tailored innovations will include a lower entry cost model of the company's hugely successful IDeaS V5i Revenue Management range, to increase pricing best-practice accessibility amongst Chinese hoteliers.
As part of the corporate expansion, IDeaS will now operate nationally in China through local offices based in three offices - Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou.
IDeaS will also draw upon the expertise and networks of its parent company, SAS, who have extensive reach within China. The coupling of SAS's business analytics framework in China along with IDeaS' proven revenue management methodologies is set to offer even greater support to Chinese hoteliers in coming years.
