A global approach for a detailed vision

Holistic room mapping & matching
Room code & FI business intelligence


For supplier, OTA, aggregator
hotels & channels management, small OTA
The magic word
Artificial intelligence
Those technologies are fantastic but at early stage, not always appropriate or adapted.
After years of researches, using the latest, we encountered too much limitations and decided to create an accesible dedicated NLP.

For matching to work, you need to gather as much as possible the "global picture", more is better. Without sufficient data and found level of interactions, results is inconsistent. We overcame those challenges.
Selecting the optimal aggregate is key to room matching.
Observation
Limitations
Working with a limited mapped criteria number, is more about mapping than matching.
With few criteria, matching rates & room codes is limited for a simple reason: All subsets, criteria, are too deeply intrinsically imbricated.

This domino effect is prevalent in room type description as it mixes lingo, abreviations and other B2B terms, with more customer oriented descriptions. Mastering this domino effect is a challenge.


A common example
Sometimes, you will have "single use" in the description, and sometimes you will have "1ad+0" or "1Pax". If you are unable to map paxes, you cant do the policy match. this is one example among many others.
A wider angle of view to sort out imbrication.

4 to 6 suppliers are enough to fully benefit our technology
For small OTA,DMC & TO, limited integration

Our solution
1 - From mapping to matching
Covering essentials criteria, specifications, policies, paxes, limitations and bonuses, our software datacross all aspects of a room.

28 mapped subsets, customized, targeted, filtered.
28 criteria subsets
2 - From static to dynamic
For room codes static matching, our software can "fill the holes" too.
For dynamic rates, precisely set your priorities. Our software has an hybrid bridge to retreive suppliers API policies.

Different need, different approach.
lead-in rates
3 - From availability to lead-in rate
You now have an exhaustive updated inventory per hotel.
By comparing the supply chain rates, you extract the lead-in ones and optimize your purchases.


Be competitive and regain profitability.

30 % more profit
4 - From lead-in rate to GP margin
By mapping an entire destination, you match the best lead-in rate against the cheapest BAR rate, extracting market gross profit margin per room at a large scale.
You vision an entire market, you sort by profit and compare offers.


Automated markup generator.

300 % more profit

Dynamic rates matching
A - Per hotel
You need to match rooms at the hotel id avail. query method to get the latest.
You do not need a lot of bedbanks to see the benefit.
Adding an OTA, affiliate, GDS API allows for GP margin extraction, similar to destination search (see B below)


Compare rates and select / redirect booking link.

Margin increase
25% to 30%


B - Per destination
Compare all hotels and right spot where are the best deals for the destination.
You sort destination and large radius searches by profit / room.
Extract GP margin by matching the supplier lead-in rate versus GDS,OTA,affiliate APIs public price.
Increase your margins and have a profit oriented push marketing. Offer better and cheaper places to your clients, while skyrocket you profit and competitiveness at the same time.


Keep prices in line, step headed with best offers.

Right spot top deals
with 300%+ profit

Lowering the need for suppliers
Matching few suppliers (5 to 6 + affiliate) across location, allows already for huge gains without having the need to cumbersome API integration costs.

Be competitive and profitable without too much integration.

Static geo-data mapping
A - Room code level
You are dealing with room codes, yours or suppliers.
You need flexibility to find the best correspondences to your own room code leveling & architecture.


Get a flexible approach and angle to ease room matching.

B - Channel management & hotel
Translate into a database text typed rooms descriptions, including policies and prices.
Drag & drop and receive a ready to import qualified rooms list.


You can now filter lists across channel management softwares.

How it works
Profiling GP margin targets
Matching is about finding the optimal aggregate across room types. The profiler interface is here to define your objectives and target what you are after.

Access our power user interface and experiment aggregate customization, ongoing developments.
Click the presets or play with the options, understand better about mapping and matching.

You move the cursor over how deep the matching to go. You are in command. Set it broad & use your own algorithms afterward, or deep in the differentiation.

Business intelligence
For new profitable models
The below graph represents the averaged GP margin per room extracted from availability queries across multiple destinations, performed by a DMC, over a period of 18 months.
The bedbanks lead-in rate was matched against a public price (BAR) whenever it was available, extracting the GP margin coefficient.


pre requis: 7 bedbanks + 1 affiliate APIs
scale: 120 to 300 hotels per search, 4 & 5 stars mostly, all rooms
range: 10 to 30.000 matching per search. Hundreds searches done.


Pushing boundaries

GP margins extracted from bedbanks and OTA
Global vision market

Timeline curves represent profit sorted rooms statistic for the destination.
in 2 to 5% of cases, you right spot the top deals with X2 to X3 GP margin coefficient.

Searching across 100 hotels, you consistently end up with 30 to 50 deals ranging 100% to 200% markup. Getting closer to check-in, still a lot at 50% and more.

Without OTA affiliates API

You do not have access to BAR public prices.
We have an algorithm able to sense, across bedbanks only, the highest potential margins, without having matched BAR or affiliate OTA API !
With 4 to 6 suppliers API, you already skyrocket your profitability.

Infrastructure
Fast easy API and online tools
Cloud computing has many advantages for databases and content distribution but when it comes to pure calc computing, nothing beats a dedicated server.

Runs 100% RAM on minimal stack, multi-threaded and // processing scalable, for an instantaneous response. NO LAG.
server infrastructure
Best with dedicated servers or our shared access, great with cloud virtual machine, clustering for assisted destination matching at large scale.

Use our shared access and participate. Hosted in Canada and France.
We use 28 cores 512 server good for 160.000 mappings per sec.

High performances open source costs represent a micro fraction of generated earnings.
