Danubius Hotels Group selects IDeaS RMS for city properties in Budapest

Successful pilot leads to IDeaS RMS roll-out out across seven Danubius hotels

Budapest, April 21, 2016 – IDeaS Revenue Solutions, the leading provider of revenue management software solutions and advisory services, today announced the roll-out of IDeaS Revenue Management System (IDeaS RMS) to Danubius Hotels Group’s seven city hotels in Budapest.

Following successful completion of pilot project in its Astoria property to increase revenue performance across 138 rooms, Danubius chose IDeaS to help manage revenue in its seven other city hotels in the heart of Budapest. During the first six months of the pilot, Danubius Astoria saw significant revenue gain and was consistently in the lead for RevPAR increase across the Group’s 12 city hotels.

“During the implementation of IDeaS pilot project, we received outstanding training and support from the IDeaS team and as a result, we noticed a significant improvement in our internal revenue management culture,” said Zoltan Bogar, group director of revenue management & distribution at Danubius Hotels Group. “We felt confident that IDeaS is the right partner for us.”

IDeaS’ ability to deliver direct and robust integrations with third party vendors means that Danubius benefits from automated delivery of both pricing decisions and inventory controls direct to all of their selling systems.  Not only does this allow Danubius to have the right mix of revenue maximising controls in place, but also frees up much needed time for the revenue team to take advantage of the wealth of business intelligence available in the IDeaS RMS.

Powered by advanced SAS® analytics and IDeaS’ 25 years of innovation in hospitality technology, IDeaS RMS equips clients with a clear vision to their data through pricing, forecasting and optimisation strategies, giving them greater control over their business. Danubius appreciated the multiple currency functionality, which was one of their major RMS selection criteria.

“We have established a great relationship with Danubius and worked closely with their team during the Astoria pilot implementation,” said Fabian Specht, EMEA managing director for IDeaS. “We are very excited to continue this partnership and we look forward to delivering an outstanding value.”

Danubius Hotel Group includes some of Budapest’s most traditional hotels visited by tourist and business travelers alike. Set in picturesque locations, they combine traditional architecture and history with modern amenities and renowned Hungarian thermal baths.
