Jamaican resort partners with Duetto for revenue strategy

Half Moon is one of the first hotels to deploy BlockBuster, a new solution built to foster collaboration between properties’ sales and revenue management departments.

Luxury resort, Half Moon in Montego Bay, Jamaica, has signed with Duetto to implement its cloud-based solution. Duetto’s agreement with Half Moon establishes Duetto’s flagship application, GameChanger, as the resort’s solution for optimizing room pricing and digital distribution.

By adopting open pricing, the foundation of the GameChanger application, Half Moon will now be able to yield rates more rapidly and with greater flexibility, drawing on web shopping regrets and denials data to better measure price sensitivity.

Half Moon will also adopt ScoreBoard, Duetto’s intelligent reporting application, and BlockBuster, its application for optimizing contracted and group business. Half Moon’s investment in the three cloud-based solutions is part of a multi-year, $75 million overhaul, which will expand the resort’s capacity to nearly 240 rooms, said Sandro Fabris, the resort’s general manager.
