Sandman Hotel Group, based in Vancouver, British Columbia, has partnered with Duetto to maximize profitability across its entire portfolio of hotels, resorts and inns. Sandman, which operates The Sutton Place Hotels, Sandman Signature Hotels & Resorts and Sandman Hotels, Inns & Suites, is implementing GameChanger, ScoreBoard and BlockBuster.
Sandman has more than 50 hotels, resorts, inns, and suites, from British Columbia to Newfoundland and Labrador, the U.S., and the U.K., and with several properties under development.
"We were looking for a modern application to enable innovative strategies throughout the organization," Michael McNames, Sandman's director of revenue, said in a statement. "We are confident in Duetto's best-in-class technology, but perhaps more importantly, it was a cultural fit for an agile company proving to be cutting-edge market leaders."
Sandman will use ScoreBoard to and produce and share multiproperty reports such as financial forecasts and budgets, leading to more accurate reporting and streamlined operations. With GameChanger, the company plans to yield rates independently by property and stay date, room type, booking channel and customer segment, driving increased revenue, profit and efficiency. Using BlockBuster will help Sandman bring together sales and revenue management to effectively yield group bookings and optimize contracted business.
