Hyatt International Corporation Commences Major Rollout Of IDeaS Revenue Management Solution

IDeaS, Inc., a leading provider of revenue optimization solutions, announced that Hyatt International Corporation has chosen IDeaS to provide revenue management serving Hyatt properties around the world.

IDeaS was named Hyatt International`s preferred revenue management solution after a successful implementation of an e-yieldTM pilot at Grand Hyatt Seoul in Korea.

“We selected IDeaS because of the proven incremental results they produced working with our company. When IDeaS installed the Grand Hyatt Seoul pilot, we immediately saw the impact of the system on our market share. The hotel moved up to number one in revenue market share within its competitive set. IDeaS was the obvious choice,” said Gebhard Rainer, Hyatt International`s vice president - Hotel Finance/Systems.
“We are pleased that Hyatt International has experienced measurable revenue increases and has realized a marked shift to dominance in its competitive set performance,” said Ed Booth, IDeaS president and chief executive officer. “Their results are similar to those experienced by many of our clients.”
“I am impressed with Hyatt`s top to bottom commitment to build revenue management into their culture.” said John Quarles, IDeaS director, International Accounts. e-yieldTM, IDeaS` solution, is modeled to each property`s and chain`s business strategy.
