Duetto Edge, a cutting-edge RMS solution, is being piloted at Denihan hotels, through a partnership between Denihan Hospitality Group and San Francisco-based Duetto Research. The Denihan portfolio includes boutique hotels such as The James New York, Chicago and Miami, and Affinia hotels in New York and Washington DC.
Duetto Edge, which helps hotel executives optimize demand, maximize revenues and minimize expenses, was launched last year and is 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 Denihan is piloting Duetto Edge, a powerful solution for anyone charged with maximizing revenues and minimizing expenses at hotels.”
He concluded, “Working closely with Denihan’s Revenue Management professionals, we look forward to measuring the ways in which Denihan’s distinctive boutique hotels are using Duetto Edge to achieve revenue and profit goals, and manage demand and revenue channels effectively and profitably. We are delighted that Denihan has made Duetto Edge the RMS of choice as a pilot for its properties.”
Duetto has been gaining traction with its cloud-based service since its launch last fall, employing Big Data technology to help independent and branded hotels optimize demand pricing strategies.
Thomas P. Botts, Denihan’s Executive Vice President, Chief Customer Officer, said, “We are excited to announce our plans to pilot Duetto Edge to support Denihan’s revenue optimization goals as we achieve greater profitability and continue to grow. We believe Duetto Edge is a promising and innovative revenue management tool that will deliver excellent results and drive value to our hotels and our owners”.
According to Botts, the Company’s partnership with Duetto is just one of several upcoming, innovative solutions supporting the integration of Denihan’s sales, marketing, revenue management and business intelligence platforms.
