The days of continually setting rates manually are over. Both costly and time consuming, setting rates by hand is not only outdated, but prone to human error. Imagine the savings you can create by eliminating all those people hours changing rates up and down across myriad channels. Plus, automatic rate setting helps to ensure you’re getting the most effective rate out to the market.
Automatic rate management allows hoteliers to manage rates at the touch of a button. To get an idea of how much more efficient you can be with this simple switch, SkyTouch has developed a value calculator tool.* Visit the SkyTouch calculator* and find out just how much money you may be spending on setting rates manually.
The calculator is so easy to use. Simply enter your average hourly cost of a hotel manager. Then type in how many people hours are spent managing rates and inventory every month. You’ll instantly see the savings.
Take this example. For a hotel spending $20 per hour on a manager, who in turn spends 40 hours a month managing rates and inventory, that’s $800 a month in potential savings. That’s nearly $10,000 people hours you can save annually in salary alone. Even if you don’t eliminate hours from your payroll, those people hours could be put to other uses. Perhaps you’ll use them to improve customer relations that can increase loyalty, or to help find new business. It’s like having an extra sales person for three months of the year!
At the Stanton Inn and Suites in Stanton, CA, general manager Darren Yang says it also helps his hotel By allowing SkyTouch to set rates for his hotel, Mr. Yang can get rates that are more effectively pegged to actual market demand.
“I don’t need to change the rates manually anymore, I just need to click one button, raise that rate or decrease that rate. I don’t need a lot of technical support to do it. SkyTouch Rate Management is awesome and really fast for increasing revenue,” says Yang.**
