Interstate Hotels & Resorts has partnered with Hotel Effectiveness to deliver labor-optimization solutions to its nearly 400 hotels in the United States. After a record growth year in 2018, the addition of Interstate's managed portfolio underscores the importance of labor management in the current economic environment.

"Interstate invests in innovative products to deliver value to our hotel owners," Pete Sams, Interstate's EVP of operations, said in a statement. "Our Leading Edge labor leadership platform, powered by Hotel Effectiveness, provides new solutions that address the largest expense item at any hotel, ensuring our hotels operate at peak efficiency."

A well-run labor-management system can reduce operating costs, leading directly to significant gains in return on investment without sacrificing the quality and service that today's hotel guests require.

Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

"After a successful pilot program with 50 hotels last year, we've recently launched to all of our U.S. hotels," Sams said. "With labor wages growing at a faster pace than revenues in many U.S. markets, we're using technology to eliminate wasteful scheduling and increase labor efficiency."

Hotel Effectiveness automates the creation and management of business-driven labor staffing rules and the resulting scheduling plans used by every operating department in a hotel. The results reduce labor costs without sacrificing quality and guest satisfaction.
