Yield Management Outcomes
From the Paper:"The majority of privately operated hotel chains have decided to follow more efficient yield management root and have variable pricing and are able to forecast visits, they are namely Marriott, Sheraton, Holiday Inn and others. They have more sophisticated forecasting system which attempts to predict not only nights to be spent by customers, but also "forecasting arrivals by length of stay and/or room rate" . When developing forecasting software most suitable for such hotels as Holiday Inn, Hilton, Sheraton, Hyatt, they targeted mainly such variables as length of stay and based on this room rate . Forecasting should consider the main economic factors influencing the demand for the hotel industry services, such as overall economic development internationally if the hotel is targeted at international visitors, local economic and social trends, expected events, attractions, holidays in the area likely to draw in visitors, competitive positions and competitiveness of other players in the industry, their long term and short term strategies and so on.
