Provenance Hotels Chooses IDeaS G3 RMS to Advance Revenue Strategy in 2017

alt text
MINNEAPOLIS – July 26, 2017 – MINNEAPOLIS – July 26, 2017 – IDeaS Revenue Solutions, the leading provider of revenue management software solutions and advisory services, is delighted to announce the expansion of its relationship with innovative hospitality management company, Provenance Hotels.

With increasingly elevated revenue management opportunities achieving consistent market share growth of 3 percent – and a partnership with IDeaS that spans back to 2012 – it was an easy decision for Provenance Hotels to continue their long-standing relationship with IDeaS.

With nine properties currently running on the flagship IDeaS Revenue Management System (RMS), Provenance’s entire portfolio is slated to transition to IDeaS G3 Revenue Management System (IDeaS G3 RMS). “We are very excited to transition all of our hotels to IDeaS G3 RMS as part of Provenance Hotels’ strategic investment to elevate our revenue management and distribution platforms. This is technology designed for the decade ahead, while our competitors are operating on systems designed for the previous two decades,” says Leslie Lew, vice president of revenue strategy for Provenance Hotels.

“Provenance looks forward to the added benefit of IDeaS’ analytics and business insights to improve revenue, market share and profitability to strengthen our competitive advantage as profit-focused hotel operators. As more and more data becomes available, we count on IDeaS’ superior analytics to cut through the ‘data noise’ and give our revenue leaders actionable intelligence at their fingertips – focusing on improving results rather than drowning in data,” Lew added.

Provenance Hotels owns and operates unique independent hotels, each with their own hand-crafted story, with several hotels under active development. Prior to implementing their current system in 2012, Provenance Hotels executed revenue management strategies through highly manual processes in central reservation systems and property management systems. Upon implementing IDeaS’ RMS, Provenance Hotels saw consistent share growth in all represented markets.

“Provenance is an innovative hotel company looking for a leading revenue management partner,” explains Jane Stampe, managing director for IDeaS. “After carefully reviewing multiple providers, Provenance selected a partner with a demonstrated commitment to their needs as a growing organization, and is equally invested in their success as a company and as individual hotels.”

Coming Up In The November Online Hotel Business Review

Feature Focus
Architecture & Design: Authentic, Interactive and Immersive
If there is one dominant trend in the field of hotel architecture and design, it’s that travelers are demanding authentic, immersive and interactive experiences. This is especially true for Millennials but Baby Boomers are seeking out meaningful experiences as well. As a result, the development of immersive travel experiences - winery resorts, culinary resorts, resorts geared toward specific sports enthusiasts - will continue to expand. Another kind of immersive experience is an urban resort – one that provides all the elements you'd expect in a luxury resort, but urbanized. The urban resort hotel is designed as a staging area where the city itself provides all the amenities, and the hotel functions as a kind of sophisticated concierge service. Another trend is a re-thinking of the hotel lobby, which has evolved into an active social hub with flexible spaces for work and play, featuring cafe?s, bars, libraries, computer stations, game rooms, and more. The goal is to make this area as interactive as possible and to bring people together, making the space less of a traditional hotel lobby and more of a contemporary gathering place. This emphasis on the lobby has also had an associated effect on the size of hotel rooms – they are getting smaller. Since most activities are designed to take place in the lobby, there is less time spent in rooms which justifies their smaller design. Finally, the wellness and ecology movements are also having a major impact on design. The industry is actively adopting standards so that new structures are not only environmentally sustainable, but also promote optimum health and well- being for the travelers who will inhabit them. These are a few of the current trends in the fields of hotel architecture and design that will be examined in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
