ASP Solution at its Cologne and Budapest Locations
Brings total number of Hilton’s using IDeaS to 92 properties
|Minneapolis, Minnesota –December 14, 2005 – IDeaS, the leading provider
of revenue optimization solutions and one of the industry’s fastest growing
technology companies has announced that Hilton International have deployed
IDeaS Revenue Optimization, ASP delivered solution for its properties in
Cologne and Budapest. While almost 100 Hilton properties currently use
IDeaS product, these latest deployments represent a sea change in that
they will be using IDeaS ASP solution rather than its enterprise product.
“We have experienced very solid results with the IDeaS product for several years and consequently we have greatly increased the number of properties that have it installed,” said Tim Davis, Senior Vice President Commerce Development and Information Services for Hilton International. “These current installations with the IDeaS product in an ASP model, are bit more special in that the new product maps closely to the open vision Hilton International has for its next generation revenue management strategy. The ASP delivery nature of the product and the e-learning capabilities will allow us to be more nimble as we install the solution globally, while the IDeaS clustering and multi-property capabilities will provide us with a clearer view to the activity at our hotels. These two properties will offer us a glimpse to the future.”
“Hilton International is of course, an important client of IDeaS, but moreover they are important bell weathers for the entire hospitality industry. Their vision, of a clear view to their estate’s data, where it’s easy to learn and work online, and where colleagues around the globe can see and work together on the business is one of the industry’s next big trends, said Joseph Martino SVP of IDeaS. “We are honored to continue our strategic partnership into the next generation of Revenue Optimization.”
