Why Chatbots Are Transforming the Travel Industry | By Bronwyn White

Hospitality Industry News - September 11, 2017 - 10:17am
Chatbots can be simply defined as artificial intelligence programs that conduct conversations with humans through chat interfaces.Consider a chatbot as a personal assistant who can respond to enquiries or give recommendations on a certain topic in a real-time manner.Research shows that more consumers are using messaging apps compared to social networks, and this trend is fast extending to the travel industry where we are seeing chatbots as messenger apps being rolled out as a new and immediate interface of customer interaction.According to a report from BI Intelligence in 2016, for the first time ever, messaging apps have now caught up with social networks in terms of users. In fact, messaging apps are now even more popular than social networks. The combined global monthly active users of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn are between three and 3.5 billion, which lags compared to the combined active users of messenger apps including WhatsApp, Messenger, WeChat, and Viber at around 3.7 billion.How Chatbots will Change the Travel Industry

STR: Smaller cities report greater hotel impact during Great American Eclipse

Hospitality Industry News - September 11, 2017 - 10:07am
Hotels in the Great American Eclipse path of totality reported a 244% increase in revenue per available room (RevPAR) on the night before the event, according to an analysis by STR's Consulting and Analytics team. In the three days leading up to the eclipse, hotels in the path of totality reported an 87% RevPAR increase."There was simply no modern comparison for this event, so while performance increases were expected, we weren't sure to what extent hotels would capitalize on what ended up being a two-minute event," said Carter Wilson, STR's VP of consulting and analytics. "In the end, the cities with limited hotel supply, like Hopkinsville, Kentucky, for instance, showed the greatest gains, while major cities, like Nashville, were lower on the RevPAR increase list. On average across the path of totality, Sunday night occupancy increases were more pronounced than rate gains, and that was enough to lift performance results for the entire country last week."

Trade in Sentimentality for a Future Proof PMS | By Kevin McCarthy

Hospitality Industry News - September 11, 2017 - 9:49am
My team and I have now converted 36 properties to Opera Cloud PMS and another 10 confirmed for migration in 2017, and 20+ to come in 2018. This is one part of a bigger project including Cloud Revenue Management, Cloud CRM, Cloud POS etc. The shift from license upfront payment to the subscription model has brought with it an unexpected hurdle. As we work with our property owners and management for the increased investment into the new suite of cloud systems, being first on Opera Cloud PMS means it's not an easy negotiation, due to the fact a very successful pricing model has been retired and a new unconventional one for the hospitality industry has emerged.

U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos released the following statement: "Watching brave men and women rush into danger to help in the wake of devastating natural disasters over the past days and weeks, one can’t help but be reminded of the heroes who rushed in to help in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania 16 years ago today.
