Duetto Edge, a cutting-edge RMS solution, has been installed at 17 Sonesta ES Suites hotels in 14 states, through a partnership between Sonesta International Hotels Corporation and San Francisco-based Duetto Research.
Duetto Edge, which helps hotel executives optimize demand, maximize revenues and minimize expenses, was launched last month and is now available to select hotel owners, brands and properties. More information is available at the company's website, www.DuettoResearch.com.
Duetto's CEO, Patrick Bosworth, said, "We are delighted to announce that Sonesta ES Suites is the first brand to adopt Duetto Edge, a powerful solution for anyone charged with maximizing revenues and minimizing expenses at hotels."
He concluded, "Working closely with Sonesta's Revenue Management professionals, we look forward to reporting back on how Sonesta ES Suites hotels are using Duetto Edge to achieve revenue and profit goals, and manage demand and revenue channels effectively and profitably. We appreciate Sonesta's foresight and partnership, in making Duetto Edge the RMS of choice, for the Sonesta ES Suites brand."
Duetto Edge was launched with Sonesta as the optimization solution for its extended-stay brand, with beta testing that began in mid-August at three of its properties - two in the Boston area, and one in Orlando. The system is now fully active at all 17 Sonesta ES Suites properties, coordinated by Duetto Research and the Sonesta corporate revenue management team.
Mylene Young, corporate director of business and acqusitions analytics, Sonesta, said, "We are excited to debut Duetto Edge, which supports revenue optimization specifically for our extended-stay model according to the ES Suites by Sonesta specifications." She concluded, "We find the product compelling as a revenue management, forecasting and optimization tool - and for the latter, Duetto Research has tailored the product to handle the longer lengths of stay required to optimize extended-stay properties. We are delighted with the results we are seeing to date."
