ATLANTA - December 14, 2010 – d2o, “deadline 2 online,” providers of the web-based Performance Management Intelligence (PMI) suite that equips hotel and resort department heads to intelligently manage daily costs in about 5 minutes a day, has added to its international business accolades with an unprecedented triple nomination for the prestigious international Rosing Information Technology Awards.

d2o and PMI are the first and only company and product to be nominated in three categories: Usability; Creativity; and IT-leader of the Year.  The Rosing Awards, presented annually by the Norwegian Computer Society, honor that country’s top IT products and professionals in the tech industry’s version of the Oscar Ceremony.
PMI is the first and only hotel management software that guarantees a 500 percent return on investment within the first 12 months, and the only integrated solution that connects the entire property management team at all levels.

PMI increases profitability and productivity
PMI combines daily occupancy and revenue forecasting, labor productivity management, and food costing by day in one package.  At the executive level, the system rolls up all properties into one report that is updated daily.  At the property level, each department head receives a graphic view of how they are performing against plan and forecast.  This management intelligence gives department heads tools to think like a CFO and manage resources based on clear revenue and profitability goals.
Benchmark completes PMI implementation
d2o recently completed its rollout of PMI by Benchmark Hospitality International.  The system is also used by more than 400 European hotels to gather and analyze strategic performance information in one integrated solution. 
”PMI goes beyond typical revenue forecasting and labor productivity software,” explains Young N. Nguyen, CEO of d2o.  ”Department heads have the data they need on labor and food cost, rolling daily revenue forecasting, and budget planning in a single system.  With these tools at their fingertips, department heads can strategize like an executive, managing operations and staff to meet profitability goals.  Our clients translate information into action without the stress of daily, weekly, and monthly reporting deadlines.”
