Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Monday, 4 May 2009

Marriott recently signed an agreement with TravelCLICK, a leader in hotel ecommerce solutions, to implement TravelCLICK Hotelligence in 150 of its select service and extended stay properties including Courtyard, Residence Inn, Fairfield Inn, TownePlace Suites, and SpringHill Suites.

Hotelligence reports will provide Marriott properties with insight on bookings history for thousands of travel agents worldwide using the Global Distribution System, including information on booking sources, rates, length-of-stay patterns for their individual hotels and for hotels they define as their competitors.

According to Gartner, by 2012, 65% of the largest companies - like Marriott - will leverage information, processes, and business intelligence tools to make more informed, responsive decisions on significant changes in their business and markets.

With todays challenging economy, it is more crucial than ever for Marriott properties to evaluate their market penetration and position, said Lee Jones, VP of Global Pricing for Marriott. Hotelligence not only helps our hotels make the right decisions, it also helps them make decisions more quicklyso they take advantage of opportunities before their competition.

Marriott has the option of expanding its implementation to include other select service and extended stay hotels, and supports the use of Hotelligence at its full service as well as independently owned and/or operated properties worldwide.

The bottom line in todays economy is this: market intelligence should not be considered a luxury item that hotels can defer when times get rocky, said Chris Rockett, Executive Vice President for TravelCLICK. Rather, it should be viewed as an essential tool for uncovering new revenue opportunities, protecting market share, and identifying unproductive rate strategies. Regardless of the economic climate, Marriotts insight into the value of business intelligence will enable its properties to thrive.
