HTNG Releases Business Analytics Specification
HTNG's Business Analytics Transactional Extract (BATE) Workgroup developed the first specification in their roadmap to benefit the hospitality industry.
Led by Co-chairs Marshall Knauf, product manager, Cloudbeds and Iris Steinmetz, vice president of product and partnerships, SnapShot GmbH, this group developed a BATE specification creating data extraction standards for financial transaction, reservation data and group blocks to solve this problem.
Additionally, the BATE Workgroup recently rechartered to develop a standard Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) target for Point of Sale (POS) systems both front of house and back of house to help create consistent extracts across the industry.

Currently more than 400 corporate and individual members from across this spectrum, including world leading hospitality companies and technology vendors, are active HTNG participants. HTNG's Board of Governors, consisting of 22 top IT leaders from hospitality companies around the world, itself has technology responsible for over 3.1 million guest rooms and world-leading venues. HTNG publishes workgroup proceedings, drafts and specifications for all HTNG members as soon as they are created, encouraging rapid and broad adoption. HTNG releases specifications into the public domain as soon as they are ratified by the workgroups. For more information, visit www.htng.org.
