in One Year: Spidey Sense Pays Off
for Sunstream Hotels & Resorts
|July 27, 2004 - SunStream Hotels & Resorts,
based in Naples and Fort Myers Beach, Florida, is one of the many
Hospitality Industry companies that have caught the bug, the S.P.I.D.E.R.
bug that is! “Our third-party booking revenues were up $1.5 million
in 2003 over 2002, and I believe that was due substantially to our implementation
of EZYield” says Jaci Bennet, (Bennett) Director of Electronic Distribution
(Strategic Distribution Manager) for SunStream. “Updating availability,
rates, allocations and stay restrictions on every contracted travel website
simultaneously, within minutes, are just some of the superhuman strengths
I now possess.”
Spectrum Powered Internet Driven Representative, a.k.a. S.P.I.D.E.R., is the state of the art web-based yield management platform that gives you the power you need to update ALL of your Internet wholesalers simultaneously on one page! Rate Parity is a difficult task to control between many different websites. Establishing rates and ranges for your hotel, followed by cutoffs, minimum stays and manually uploading each individual site becomes time consuming, nearly impossible! With EZYield, this problem becomes a thing of the past. Rate Parity is easily achieved within seconds among all channels.
Ms. Bennett explains, “With EZYield as our sidekick, we were able to add on more Internet wholesalers and manage all our websites effectively. As a direct result of EZ Yield, we saved time and money, and continue to be able to drive more and more revenue through third party channels. The mystery behind channel management was solved with the simplicity of EZYield.com’s S.P.I.D.E.R. system”.
“The secret identity of channel management was not so much of a mystery after all. EZYield.com empowered us to expand and control our E-commerce department with simplicity. EZYield was the hero of SunStream Hotels & Resorts, with a little help from our friendly S.P.I.D.E.R.”
“EZYield meets the demanding needs of the ‘modern’ revenue manager, providing quick, easy, and most importantly, a cost-effective solution for Internet distribution channel management,” said Ed St. Onge, President and Co-Founder of EZYield.com.
