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 5 years, D-EDGE has conducted a unique study that analyses the evolution of online sales of hotels channel by channel. Which channels are the most performant, on which channel do we observe the lowest cancellation rate, the highest revenue per room ? 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.

How to attract direct bookings with Tripadvisor

Over the last few years, Tripadvisor has been able to increase its influence on global travel spending. Referring to an ideal booking path, we have managed to create products that can optimize every single step of the booking process, so as to create a strong synergy around the core tool: the metasearch.

Your data between the Reception and the Cloud. From PMS to Marketing Automation to increase direct revenues

The increase in booking channels and touch points with the hotel, together with the limited integration among different software, produce data silos potentially rich in information, such as inaccessible diamond mines. Discover the data warehousing and business intelligence methods and tools that allow you to exploit data silos, increase data quality, turn data into information, get to know better all your customers, build loyalty, acquire new ones and develop more direct revenues.
