Analysing the evolution of the different channel distribution performance to define the best mix for your hotel

Based on millions of data collected over the past 6 years, D-EDGE has conducted a unique study that analyses the evolution of online sales of hotels channel by channel. On which channel do we observe the lowest cancellation rate, the highest revenue per room, bookings for the longest stays, etc? At the end of this presentation, you’ll be able to establish what is the winning distribution mix for your hotel according to your strategy.

10.30

Between Reception and the Cloud: from PMS to Marketing Automation and the increase in direct sales

The increase of the reservation channels available to the client, the points of contact with the hotel, together with the profusion of generally non-integrated software, determine the co-existence of databases potentially rich in information, such as inaccessible and difficult to exploit diamond mines. However, with methodology, appropriate tools and business intelligence, you will be able to analyze these data and transform them into information, get to know the customer, build customer loyalty, acquire new ones and increase direct sales.

The Quest For More Direct Bookings – Why Are Your Guests Lost In The Customer Journey?
