Bridging the gap between revenue management and marketing
Do you struggle with synching up your business when it comes to matching rate code to guest?
Still responding to the wealth of customer data available in your digital world with a Dinner Bed and Breakfast package?
Still using year over year occupancy statistics to anticipate customer behaviour?
A key challenge for the hotel commercial department in 2017 is changing the mindset away from room-centricity to guest-centricity: instead of selling 200 rooms, the revenue management and marketing function is selling to 200,000 potential customers – their database, all their website visitors, social media engagement, review sites and more.
Treating traffic sources in different ways, and delivering a dynamically targeted message based on the origin of that visitor (whether from a search engine, review site or PPC ad) has been shown to greatly enhance conversion rates and Average Order Value. The potential here is enormous.
Voyat is one company having great success in doing just this. Voyat is a smart personalization layer that uses data science and machine learning to identify, segment and target users, and feeds this information back to a web site to increase web conversions.
Collaboration is key
Benjamin Habbel, Founding CEO of Voyat, and Keynote Speaker at the ‘Seize Opportunity in Disruption’ Conference, has uncovered huge value in looking at revenue data that breaks with the tradition of using simple rate codes as the primary consumer response mechanism. Voyat looks at metrics more commonly associated with the E commerce function such as revenue per user, average order volumes conversion rate. This opens up a whole new world of data with new targeting and forecasting tools, and delivers highly personalized experiences.
