How to Increase Your Hotel's
Internet Revenues

Florence, Italy - May 2005 - The 2 ½ star, 87 room Hotel Delle Nazioni in Florence Italy managed to increase its revenues with 3rd party websites by 40% in only 6 months. The hotel had been selling its rooms using the long list of distribution websites active on the European hotel market. However at first they were not able to impact the sales levels in a significant way. The problem was it was costing so much time to manage the big 10, they never got around to extending the same prices and availability to the other smaller sites.

As of November 2004 the hotel started using RTAllocator, RateTiger’s channel management solution, and witnessed a direct impact on its bottom line. With the RTAllocator they were now able to manage rates and availability centrally for all websites at the same time.

“Since we have been working with Rate Tiger, November 2004, Hotel Delle Nazioni has seen an incredible increase of e-commerce revenue of approximately 40%. RTAllocator has been key for us to reach the possibility of Rate Parity in the main sites. Additionally have we benefited greatly form increasing revenues coming from the minor sites which can now be maintained like the big ones. Our Revenue Manager was spending the whole morning updating sites and now he does it in minutes. I am recommending RateTiger to any hotelier!’’ said Giancarlo Carniani, General Manager of Hotel Delle Nazioni.

‘’This is a perfect example of how using a simple solution like RTAllocator can have a significant effect on your bottom line. The hotel has been able to really distribute his product over a large variety of ecommerce portals and control them as one channel. Without sacrificing his market share with the larger global 3rd party websites, he has been able to generate significant incremental revenues by offering the smaller sites competitive rates and availability. And all of this less time than it cost before. It shows that with RateTiger, you truly Save Time, Make Money!’’ said Patrick Landman of eRevMax technologies.
