Leading European four-star hotel group transitions entire estate to IDeaS G3 RMS
Duesseldorf – April 5 – IDeaS Revenue Solutions, the leading provider of revenue management software solutions and advisory services, today announced an agreement with existing client Lindner Hotels & Resorts to implement IDeaS G3 Revenue Management System (RMS).
Gunnar von Hagen, corporate director of operations and central project management at Lindner, wanted to build the group’s existing revenue management approach by taking advantage of the sophisticated forecasting offered by IDeaS G3 RMS.
“As an existing client of IDeaS, we knew how to maximise the opportunities identified by revenue management systems,” said von Hagen. “We chose IDeaS G3 RMS to allow our revenue managers more time to work on our high level strategy whilst the technology takes care of the detail.”
Lindner’s implementation of G3 RMS will give the group high precision forecasts and empower pricing decisions by room class, which are automatically distributed to all connected channels. The revenue managers will be able to utilise IDeaS’ exclusive ‘What if’ analysis to further confirm optimum pricing and placement of different customer segments.
“We are excited to transition Lindner Hotels & Resorts to our latest G3 RMS, especially as the successful privately-held hotel company is a long term IDeaS client with a highly evolved revenue management culture,” said Fabian Specht, EMEA managing director for IDeaS. “With more than 30 hotels and close to 5,000 rooms, this successful family-run hotel business is using our technology to advance to their next phase of revenue management maturity.”
About Lindner Hotels & Resorts
In 2015, 42 years after it was founded, the family-run Lindner Group has grown to become one of Germany’s leading hotel companies. In 2014, it employed around 2,000 people and generated €179 million in turnover. The Lindner Group currently has 33 hotels in seven European countries, ranging from modern business hotels in major cities to a variety of high-class spa and sports resorts. Some hotels were taken on when they were experiencing financial difficulties and have been successfully re-positioned on the market. In recent times, franchises have been added. Like the group’s existing hotels, these offer individual holiday concepts, excellent quality, and innovative spa experiences.
Otto Lindner, the second generation of the family to lead the company, has pioneered new hotel concepts that have won numerous awards. Most notably, the first-ever zoo-themed hotel, the Lindner Park-Hotel Hagenbeck in Hamburg, was awarded the Hotel Property of the Year award, and Otto Lindner was voted Hotelier of the Year. Lindner Hotels also regularly achieve high ratings on Holidaycheck, a travel review website. www.lindner.de
