It takes a lot of time to collect data

❌  Our data resides in many different systems


❌  A substantial part of my work is to find the correct data


❌  It takes forever to copy and paste data between systems


❌  We cannot use one system for all our hotels


❌ Most of our data collection processes are manual

It isn't easy to understand the information

❌  We do not know how to capture a higher market share


❌  I cannot forecast and track pick-up for all revenue sources


❌  We cannot track forecasting accuracy


❌  I have no visibility of group business


❌ Reporting to management takes too much time

NO MORE GUESSWORK!
Demand Calendar is a game-changer for Total Revenue Management

Here is an ideal day in the hotel revenue managers life:

Always running in the background

All, new, modified, or canceled, reservations transfer automatically with all details from the hotel PMS. In addition, Demand Calendar collects data from benchmarking, rate shopping, and the revenue management system to have all data organized and ready to use to make actionable decisions to improve performance.

Start of day

Log in to the dashboard to show yesterday's performance and pick-up. Demand Calendar searches for anomalies and will alert you when pick-up is too fast or too slow, so you will not miss any opportunities to optimize revenue. Then, take action and start checking all alerts off, one by one. Add notes to the Demand Calendar diary for each day to keep track of decisions and actions. Next, check that all the new reservations are complete and accurate, and assess group inquiries.

 

Revenue manger start of the day

Morning - focus on yielding

Review the room forecast for the next couple of weeks. The best Revenue Managers keep all estimates updated to ensure that the forecast is current, so this process will only take a few minutes every day.

Review the forecast for all other revenue sources and pay attention to any new inquiries that might materialize. If it is likely that a group will become definitive, it is time to consider a rate adjustment for the remaining inventory. Make a note to yourself in the diary.

The booking pace might be slow for some days, so the hotel needs an attractive campaign to speed up the pick-up. Assist marketing with analyzing campaign content, rates and executing distribution of availability and rates.

The ideal forecasting process

Afternoon - focus on team actions

After spending the morning on finetuning the total revenue forecast, you now have all the facts and figures to support the other team members.

Discuss and assist sales and in-house sales with attractive rates to win the right business.

Help marketing to analyze campaign results and advice on where new campaigns could help bring in more business. Discuss which campaigns and special rates to open or close.

Respond to any requests for facts and figures from your boss. If time permits, go deeper into the statistics to better understand trends and patterns.
