WE SOLVE REAL WORLD PROBLEMS

We resolve the most complex and persistent industry challenges

Maximizing profitable revenue while minimizing customer acquisition cost

Explore

Driving and growing sustainable profits is key to hospitality asset owners and operators. Achieving this requires (a) to maximize attraction and capture of ‘profitable’ guests, (b) to drive ‘profitable’ customer spend once they are in-house, (c) to focus on elevating guest experience to achieve total satisfaction (d) to have full control on costs and expenses. This proves to be a highly complex endeavor, especially given the functional, technological, and organizational silos our industry is known for.

Our Intelligent Total Profitable Revenue Tool (iTopiTTM) provides an integrated and granular understanding and analysis of the different layers of profitability for each revenue stream to better control Net Total Revenue. A real-time detailed analysis by channel, market segment, nationality etc. combined with precise pace and pick-up performance monitoring, helps devise strategies to focus on the most profitable channels, market segments, geographic sources of business at the right time, while taking into consideration important criteria such as length of stay, spending pattern, booking lead time, etc.

How does inHovate’s iFloDTM help you drive most of your revenue down to profit?

Explore

In a capital-intensive industry characterized by high demand volatility and a higher share of fixed costs vs. variable costs (operational leverage), it is critical to devise strategies that ensure the highest level of revenue conversion into profit, or flow-through. However, the diverse revenue stream types in hospitality (Rooms, F&B, MICE, Wellness, etc.) do not ‘flow’ equally to the bottom line, as there are various complex and inter-related drivers that affect such flow-through that are inherent to each type of revenue stream. Additionally, each hospitality asset type and category (resort vs. business hotel, fine-dining vs. casual-dining restaurant, etc.) has its own inherent risk profile, volatility level and operational leverage.

Our Intelligent Flow-Through Driver (iFloDTM) provides hotels with real-time granular understanding, monitoring, and control of the various layers building each revenue stream’s profitability. This empowers hotel management and ownership to effectively ‘deconstruct’ profitability and reconstruct it into an integrated, optimized and sustainable profit, leading to exponential gains in asset value.

How does inHovate’s iFabiTTM help you increase F&B capture, customer spend and satisfaction while maximizing profitability?

Explore

Restaurants and Bars are key constituents of the hospitality industry, whether as part of a hotel offering or as standalone operations. Food and Beverage profitability is driven by the ability to drive capture and seat turnover while maximizing ‘profitable’ customer spend and controlling fixed (labor cost for example) and variable (cost of goods sold for example) expenses. It is therefore critical to have a holistic and integrated view of all the interlaced elements that drive restaurants and bars profitability.

Our Intelligent Food and Beverage Integrated Tool (iFabiTTM) is designed for standalone restaurants and bars as well as hotel F&B operations and offers a 360o integrated view by combining data from various sources (Point-of-Sale system, Hotel Property Management System, Accounting and Finance System, etc.). This empowers hospitality owners and operators to devise strategies based on real-time understanding of customer preferences, propensity to spend, profitability vs. popularity of food and beverage offer, labor efficiency, cost of goods sold, etc. resulting in maximization of revenues and profits and increased guest satisfaction and loyalty.

How does inHovate’s iHoisTTM help you decide whether you should hold, invest in, or sell your asset?

Explore

Hospitality assets are inherently capital intensive, and hospitality investors have different risk and investment profiles. Some prefer to venture in certain asset classes with greater potential premiums in highly volatile markets, others focus on asset types in markets where returns are typically more consistent hence more predictable. However, regardless of their profiles, investors typically evaluate their assets to make a hold-invest-sell decision on a regular basis. That evaluation is often complex, time consuming and costly as it relies on many interlaced criteria and parameters, some of which are under the control of the asset owner/operator, and others that are not (market conditions, investment & trading environment, etc.).

Our Intelligent Hold-Invest-Sell Tool (iHoisTTM) provides instant access to elements that are key to making this important decision, such as thorough analysis on asset value, market conditions and predictions, etc. and offers intelligent recommendations to determine adequate timing and conditions for the Hold-Invest-Sell decision.
