SAN FRANCISCO - Duetto, hospitality’s innovative software as a service provider of revenue strategy solutions, has been selected by Design Hotels as its Preferred Vendor for revenue solutions for its independent hotel property members.
The partnership agreement enables Design Hotels members to contract with Duetto for its GameChanger application for pricing optimization and ScoreBoard for intelligent reporting.
Headquartered in Berlin, with offices in London, Barcelona, New York City, and Singapore, Design Hotels offers hospitality services to a network of over 300 independent hotels in more than 60 countries worldwide.
Working closely with Duetto, Design Hotels will offer member properties access to its Revenue Management Fundamentals service, which provides hotels with a revenue analysis and audit, and post-implementation support with pricing recommendations once they have installed Duetto.
Together, the two companies will help foster revenue technology adoption and pricing best practices for the boutique hotel segment.
Hotel Arena in Amsterdam is a member of Design Hotels and has been running on Duetto since February 2021.
“It's working really well. I’ve switched on AutoPilot, and as far as flexing discounts go, Duetto handles this brilliantly,” said Nicolas Stockman, Revenue Manager, Hotel Arena. “Every day, I go straight into ScoreBoard, so I can confidently base new pricing rules on the figures it shows me. It’s so easy to interact with the system.”
“Design Hotels was looking for a partner with competencies in forecasting and pricing automation, specifically for small to medium-sized boutique hotels,’’ said Simon Schwitallik, Head of Channel Analytics at Design Hotels. “We want to enable smaller-scale properties with a fluid pricing strategy and the technology to support this endeavor, and Duetto does exactly that. It’s a great fit because hoteliers can easily understand why the system increases or decreases prices based on Duetto’s ideal booking curve, and therefore optimizes prices by room type.”
“Independent hotels are an important segment to Duetto, and we are proud to be working alongside Design Hotels to deliver a tailored pricing platform to their catalog of outstanding boutique properties,” said Michael Schaeffner, VP of Sales, EMEA, Duetto.
“At a personal level, I am delighted to be working with the Design Hotels team once more. This is where my career in hospitality began, and I am excited to now be helping this membership of independent properties to optimize their pricing strategies and achieve best-in-market pricing power too.”
