United States : Leading Hoteliers Continue to Invest in Infor for Revenue Management

June 24, 2014

Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that more than 340 hotel and resort properties around the world have selected Infor EzRMS over the past twelve months, including leading brands such as Destination Hotels & Resorts (US), Dorint Hotels & Resorts (Germany), Hotel Westminster (France), Mandarin Orchard Singapore (Singapore), and Baiyun Hotel Guangzhou (China). The latest release of the application is part of Infor CloudSuite Hospitality, which provides industry customers with access to applications in the cloud environment. With functionality configured specifically for hotels, resorts and casinos, and a flexible subscription-based delivery model, Infor CloudSuite Hospitality allows users to share critical data in real-time, while simultaneously reducing the total cost of ownership by diminishing the need to purchase onsite hardware or hire supplementary IT staff.

"We selected Infor EzRMS because it not only analyzes traditional revenue from room reservations, but also ancillary spending from areas such as our spas and restaurants," said Martin Stanton, chief information officer, Destination Hotels & Resorts. "This gives us a more comprehensive picture of revenue at both the individual property and across multiple locations, helping us to increase profits by more accurately assessing all sources of return."

Infor EzRMS helps hoteliers better optimize revenue management by automatically calculating demand forecasts and recommending appropriate selling strategies based on data such as day-of-week patterns, lead time figures and the number of guests per room. Since its acquisition of EzRMS in June 2012, Infor has incorporated the application into the Infor Hospitality suite to provide a complete solution for multiple back and front-office operations including revenue management, reservations, sales and marketing, and talent management. Infor EzRMS was named a champion in the 2013 Info-Tech Research Group Revenue Management Systems Vendor Landscape, confirming its position as an industry-leading application with superior features, usability and architecture.

"As the hospitality industry becomes increasingly competitive, hoteliers around the world are looking for new revenue management strategies to optimize pricing and sales," said Stan van Roij, managing director of Infor EzRMS. "Infor continues to experience momentum with Infor EzRMS because the solution is specifically designed for the hospitality industry and provides an in-depth view of historical and current demands across multiple properties within a brand, helping hoteliers to make better decisions regarding rates and pricing, and giving them an edge on the competition."
