Best Western installs rate-intelligence tools

OTA Insight's intuitive rate-parity and online-visibility tools will be used to monitor Best Western's portfolio of hotels.

Best Western Hotels & Resorts has selected OTA Insight to provide its revenue-maximization tools to its global business. OTA Insight's rate-intelligence platform will help drive Best Western's revenue strategy by supplying real-time dashboard and benchmarking tools to increase profitability.

Best Western will benefit from OTA Insight's rate parity and online visibility tools. The solution will enable Best Western to monitor locally targeted online travel agency promotions and help ensure the best rate is always available on Best Western's direct hotel website.

As part of the partnership, Best Western will also have access to OTA Insight's latest development, a ground-breaking new parity dashboard within the platform that will allow global chains to streamline and effectively manage pricing across all channels and properties from a head office level. The dashboard will help Best Western monitor rate parity and, in turn, work with individual properties to alleviate any pricing challenges.
