HLC Hotels today announced it has selected AnyRate Software to provide
competitive rate shopping reports and tools to all of its properties.
The agreement will allow AnyRate’s leading-edge competitive rate shopping
tools to become an immediate part of HLC’s enhanced revenue management
and pricing focus for 2007.
Cindy Roberts, Corporate Director of Sales & Marketing for HLC Hotels, commented that “the addition of the AnyRate tools will provide timely pricing information and support to HLC staff at the properties and in the corporate office to help ensure that our properties are competitively priced.” In looking for the right partner to provide competitive rate intelligence, Roberts noted that “it was important for us to have access to quality data in a concise set of reports that would work equally well for all the hotels in the HLC portfolio, regardless of market or price range, and AnyRate was the right provider to address those needs”.
John Romeo, President & CEO of AnyRate Software, stated that “we are extremely pleased to add HLC Hotels to the ever-increasing number of management companies utilizing the AnyRate tools for competitive rate intelligence”. Romeo further commented that “AnyRate is proud to be associated with a quality organization such as HLC Hotels and we look forward to working together to help them achieve their pricing and revenue goals in 2007.”
