Shared accommodation provider Generator & Freehand Hotels has partnered with software-as-a-service provider Duetto to maximize revenue opportunities as it streamlines operations.
Generator & Freehand Hotels operates a portfolio of 19 properties in Amsterdam, Paris, New York and Miami. The company has moved its entire portfolio of boutique hotels and hostels onto Duetto, following a rapid integration that went from contract to go-live in only six weeks. Generator & Freehand credits this to the partnership between Duetto and cloud-based property-management system Mews.
The main requisites Generator & Freehand sought in a revenue strategy platform were optimized pricing, efficient forecasting and reporting.
“We had been with an existing pricing tool for the last 18 months and we were looking to move to a revenue strategy platform. There was a clear difference between what we had and what Duetto provides. The analytics and reporting in Duetto are impressive and will add a new dimension to our revenue management capabilities in the future,” said Edward Pinchard, chief commercial officer, Generator & Freehand Hotels.
Generator & Freehand now is optimizing every booking with Duetto’s GameChanger pricing application and using ScoreBoard for reporting and forecasting.
“Generator and Freehand are very forward-looking brands that are intent on pulling out of the COVID-19 pandemic stronger and better equipped technologically to face the ‘new normal’. The team had quickly evaluated the situation and realized they needed more from their tech stack, and we are extremely proud they chose Duetto,” said David Woolenberg, CEO, Duetto.
“Integrating with new solutions is something that many hoteliers dread because they think it will take months and cost lots. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Through the Mews Marketplace, Generator can easily connect to hundreds of hospitality tech solutions, of which Duetto is one of the real standouts, and push their business forward,” said Matt Welle, CEO, Mews.
