Hotel Intelligence, the French start-up that is revolutionizing hoteliers’ direct booking with its artificial intelligence, is accelerating its development by opening offices in the United States and Canada. This expansion will enable the company to enhance its presence and distribution in North America, an essential market for growth, and be closer to its customers.
“We are delighted to announce the opening of our U.S. offices at a time when the deep changes that we’re bringing about in the hotel distribution industry are attracting interest from all over the world,” said Thomas SCHMIDER, Co-founder of Hotel Intelligence.
“The world is in the midst of technological disruption, and the hospitality industry is no exception,” he said. “To meet this challenge, we’ve assembled a team of highly experienced individuals who will work alongside us to expand our reach and perfect our machine learning technology.”
“Today, the problem for hoteliers is that OTAs are creating rate disparity and rate opacity all over the world. It is almost impossible for the hotelier to know at what price it is sold in each country, in real time and depending on the connection device. It is therefore almost impossible for him to adapt his price in real time according to these criteria. We end up with a terrible statistic: Today in 70% of the cases in the world the customer finds a better rate on the OTA’s than on the official website of the hotelier. Our Hotel Intelligence technology allows them to correct this”.
Hotel Intelligence allows to rebalance the relationship between hoteliers and OTA’s by developing their Direct Booking.
“Our customers all over the world are able to capture between 40% and 60% of the booking volumes that used to come from OTA’s in favor of their direct website”.
It is not uncommon for our clients to divide by 2 or 3 the amount they pay to OTA’s.
Hotel Intelligence is not only a more advanced price comparator than its competitors, it offers a 360° solution that allows the hotelier to integrate all the psychology, buying behaviors and habits of customers that make them prefer to book on OTA’s in 90% of cases.
Beyond the price checker, this complete solution allows us to either integrate our tools on the hotelier’s existing website by integrating with its existing ecosystem (PMS, Channel Manager, CRM…) or to offer the hotelier the possibility to create a brand new optimized website in less than 5 minutes.
It is this adaptability that allows us to address both establishments with a few rooms and large groups with many units. We can create a reservation center for the brand/group.
