"The company’s unsurpassed global portfolio, in partnership with Rubicon’s market intelligence experience and established relationships with large hotel chains, has created a winning and powerful combination."

    "Particularly in this tougher economic climate, hotels have quickly signed on to MarketVision Agency Position to realize the immediate benefits of the tool in identifying and reacting to what’s happening in their market, and to increase their share of business," said Kistner. "Hotels use MarketVision to easily measure performance against their competitive set, identify sales and revenue management opportunities, gauge sales and marketing effectiveness, recognize booking trends, and spot gaps in business demand and market share."

"As an independent hotel group, this valuable reporting system allows us to compete in a tough market against the large worldwide chains."

Data Sourced from Largest Electronic Collection of Hotels
MarketVision’s Agency Position reports source data from Pegasus’ UltraSwitch, which processes transactions for the largest collection of electronically bookable hotels in the world – more than 95,000 worldwide processing nearly five billion bookings monthly. This data is also combined with supplier direct data from Rubicon, providing a rich source of reservation based statistics for historic and future analysis.
    "MarketVision Agency Position’s unique capability to provide information on which sources have booked a property’s competitive set historically, as well as a view of booking demand up to 120 days out, can dramatically improve a property’s sales, marketing and revenue management decisions," said Steve Swope, CEO of Rubicon. "Hotels can dynamically see and act against relative market performance, which also sets MarketVision Agency Position apart from other market intelligence tools."
