Executive Summary

In order to address and solve the immediate loss of revenue due to empty room at peak times at Hotel Domicile, I compiled this report that details a new distribution channel management strategy aligned with a total revenue management approach at Hotel Domicile.

The decision to implement yield management with the customization our new website that include a booking system is a strategic importance for Hotel Domicile. I am confident that successful implementation of yield management will reduce the time and costs associated with our current traditional pricing tactics.

I was able to identify other alternatives as follows

  1. Create reservation systems
  2. Contract online Travel Agent and implement a metasearch visibility strategy
  3. Implement Global distribution systems
  4. Introduce Guest Rewards Sales Strategy

Although these were viable, I am confident that building a custom design hotel direct website i.e. HotelDomicile.ca with a booking system and implementing yield management will provide the best strategic solution that aligns with total revenue management approach.

Respectfully,

Olivier Gagné, CEO of Hotel Domicile Group
