The Kessler Collection decides on Intercrew
Systems for Revenue Management
May 7, 2007 – Intercrew Systems (ICS) is pleased to announce that The Kessler Collection has joined a growing list of clients that use its revenue management software, RFT, to support its revenue management team’s efforts. 

The Kessler Collection boasts a very diverse upscale portfolio requiring extremely flexible software to maintain seamless, timely and accurate data transfers.  That combined with a desire to improve forecast accuracy and standardize their revenue management processes made Intercrew Systems the obvious choice for Kessler.

Intercrew’s RFT offers hotel room revenue forecasting tools that achieve extremely accurate performance.  Clients consistently boast of less than 3 percent variance to actual in room revenue, and in some cases less than 1 percent variance.  When incredibly accurate day-by-day segmented forecasts are coupled with the ICS’s Sell Strategy Module, revenue management teams create sell strategies that assure results in distribution and channel management.  And, critical to Kessler, the Intercrew RFT standardizes the forecast and sell strategy process throughout their entire portfolio.

Now the hotels and corporate staff can work with the same report formats irrespective of whether the hotels are branded or independent.  According to Maricarmen Cardenas, Corporate Director of Revenue Management with The Kessler Collection, “Intercrew’s RFT will allow us to much more easily identify trends that assist us in measuring strategic progress related to rooms sold. This system will help all our revenue managers enhance their skill set and excel within our discipline”. 

Intercrew Systems has built the most accurate forecasting tool available today, and it was built by hotel professionals for hotel professionals.  The ability to effectively yield room inventory, price room inventory and deploy your sales team to sell room inventory begins and ends with an accurate long term day-by-day segmented forecast.

The Kessler Collection is based out of Orlando, Florida, and primarily manages upscale independent hotels in North America.  Kessler now joins dozens of hotels and third party management companies that use Intercrew forecasting and sell strategy tools to win RevPAR battles in competitive sets across the nation!
