IDeaS, a leading provider of hospitality-focused revenue optimization solutions and one of the industry's fastest growing technology companies, announced the immediate availability of a certified integration between IDeaS Revenue Optimization and Visual One's property management system.

The availability of the solution offers joint clients and future prospects the assurance of compatibility between the two products.
 
"For companies considering purchasing the respective solutions, they can rest assured that the solution has been fully tested in live client environments and the clients themselves have been happy with the integration," said Linda Hatfield, vice president of product management for IDeaS. "Our goal was to provide peace of mind for our clients and prospects, and I am happy to say that it has been delivered."
 
"With the availability of the Visual One/IDeaS integration, joint clients are now able to fully leverage the strengths of both our respective products," added Dan Wasser, senior vice president for Visual One.
 
The integrated products have been installed at various joint clients including the Perdido Beach Resort in Orange Beach, Alabama.
 
"The importance of being able to couple IDeaS' revenue recommendations with our existing Visual One system made this integration especially important for our environment," added James Meadlock Jr., vice president for the Perdido Beach Resort. "In our environment the use of IDeaS' BAR reports gives us the ability to easily identify growth opportunities in the transient segment while at the same time, supporting our group business model."
 
Key Product Highlights - IDeaS in use at the Perdido Beach Resort:
  • IDeaS Best Available Rate (BAR) Module is designed to help the hotelier answer the challenge of what rate to quote to the unqualified guest. If they price too high, they might lose the guest; price too low and they might compromise their revenue. The IDeaS pricing engine selects the optimal rate with the highest probability of selling based on arrival date and length of stay.
  • IDeaS Reports brings together the data needed in charts and tables with options to export to Excel or a PDF. IDeaS reports are designed to highlight business trends and exceptions, review booking paces and showcase results of marketing activities as well as revenue management control reports. IDeaS offers over 30 easily accessible reports targeted to key areas of forecast, decisions and management. Users can measure ongoing performance against forecast and prior year's performance.
  • IDeaS' Web-based delivery was designed to provide a faster, easier and more cost effective deployment method for hoteliers of any size and in any location in the world.
