The following customer success stories are examples of the business benefits of IDeaS' SaaS solutions:
- Kempinski's Hotel Baltschug in Moscow has increased its average room rate 22 percent year on year, which resulted in a revenue increase of $4 million. Kempinski's Mall of the Emirates generated 28 percent growth in ADR following a pricing review and enhanced use of the IDeaS V5i solution.
- Protea Hotels, the largest hotel group in Africa with over 100 properties across the continent, increased the Revenue per Available Room (RevPAR) at its Wanderers Hotel in Johannesburg 15 – 20 percent since 2006.
- The LA Wilshire Grand Hotel, a 900-room property in the heart of downtown Los Angeles, generated a 4 percent revenue increase and has reduced forecasting inaccuracy to 1 percent as a result of implementing the IDeaS V5i solution in 2005. In addition, implementing the SaaS solution allowed the revenue manager to redefine his role and increase his value to the hotel, by focusing more time on strategic decision-making and less time on data entry.
