First Central Hotel Suites, Dubai partners with Duetto for revenue strategy

First Central Hotel Suites, a hotel in the heart of Dubai, implemented Duetto’s cloud-based revenue-strategy application, GameChanger, and revenue-intelligence solution, ScoreBoard. Under the agreement, Duetto will provide the property with unprecedented market intelligence, the benefits of open pricing, and the ability to fully optimize revenue and easily analyze property performance.
