NEW YORK—TravelClick and Duetto have partnered to integrate TravelClick’s Demand360 data into Duetto’s GameChanger revenue strategy application. The integration is meant to make open pricing an even more powerful tool in today’s complex distribution landscape, according to the company.
Hotels that subscribe to TravelClick’s business intelligence data, Demand360, can integrate its data into Duetto’s GameChanger solution. Demand360 provides visibility to future occupancy levels by segment and channel for a competitive set of hotels. Integrating this data seamlessly into Duetto’s solution will deliver advanced, real-time pricing recommendations to help hotels transform revenue strategy and drive more profitability, according to the company. The integration is expected to be completed in the first half of 2016.
Greg Sheppard, VP, business intelligence products, TravelClick, stated, “Duetto’s core value is in bringing powerful data sets to change how rate decisions are made, and there is no data that’s more powerful than TravelClick’s Demand360 solution. Integrating Demand360 into Duetto’s solution will not only transform hotels’ revenue management speed and accuracy, but it will also help to drive occupancy and optimize ADR.”
Patrick Bosworth, CEO and co-founder of Duetto, said, “The pace of change in today’s market demands greater flexibility and innovation to fully optimize revenue, manage distribution complexity and adapt to rapidly changing market conditions… This partnership is ultimately a win-win for customers, because combining such powerful demand data with open pricing enables hoteliers to stay further ahead of the curve in an increasingly competitive marketplace.”
According to the company, hoteliers will only have access to data for their own properties and an aggregated view of their competitive sets. No individual competitive information will be shared.
