GameChanger, ScoreBoard apps integral to growth of Artyzen and citizenM brands in China and beyond
Hong Kong, 17 July, 2018 — Artyzen Hospitality Group and Duetto, hospitality’s only Revenue Strategy Platform, have announced plans to extend their partnership as the Hong Kong-based hotelier grows beyond its base in China and opens more branded properties across Asia.
Artyzen has used GameChanger, Duetto’s flagship Open Pricing application, since 2015 at its two resort properties in Macau: Grand Lapa and Grand Coloane. With this most recent deal, Artyzen will roll out GameChanger to its other two operating hotels, Artyzen Habitat in Beijing and citizenM in Taipei, and implement another Duetto app, ScoreBoard, to all four properties.
The company has approximately 10 more hotels in development, including its Artyzen and Artyzen Habitat brands, as well as properties it will open under its joint venture with citizenM Hotels.
“Building on our momentum in China and accelerating growth across Asia-Pacific requires partners that are able to scale up as fast as we are,” said Allan Yip, Artyzen Hospitality Group’s Head of Southeast Asia and Vice President of Marketing. “Cloud-based hospitality technology like Duetto’s applications make it easier and more efficient to manage our pricing, distribution and reporting. We look forward to implementing our Revenue Strategy further as we expand to important destination markets like Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore.”
Artyzen uses GameChanger to yield rates independently by property and stay date, room type, booking channel and customer segment, resulting in prices that maximize profitability and increase booking conversion on its direct channels. With the intelligent-reporting application ScoreBoard, the company will significantly reduce the time it takes to produce and share forecasts, budgets and other vital reports.
“Artyzen Hospitality Group is a clear leader among hoteliers in Asia for merging authentic cultural experiences with truly luxurious properties,” said Patrick Bosworth, Co-Founder and CEO of San Francisco-based Duetto. “The expansion of this partnership will ensure that a scalable Revenue Strategy, capable of executing a modern e-commerce experience, supports their ambitions to spread Artyzen’s unique brand of hospitality throughout the region.”
The four hotels currently open and operating under the partnership comprise approximately 950 rooms.
