5 ways data-driven decisions using your PMS increase hotel revenue

October 16, 2023

A property management system (PMS), like Visual Matrix, offers hoteliers valuable data they can use to make decisions that will maximize their revenue and their profitability.  

Here’s a look at just five ways in which data-driven decision-making benefits hoteliers:

1.) PMS data helps you optimize hotel pricing strategies.

By analyzing historical booking data, market demand, and competitor pricing trends, you can leverage PMS data to optimize your pricing strategies. This involves adjusting room rates in real-time based on factors like occupancy levels, seasonality, and local events. With the right prices set at the right times, you can maximize your Average Daily Rate (ADR) and Revenue Per Available Room (RevPAR) and ensure rooms are neither underpriced nor overpriced, which leads to increased revenue.

2.) PMS data helps you create targeted marketing campaigns.

Data analytics can help hoteliers identify key customer segments and their preferences. This information can be used to create personalized marketing campaigns. For instance, if data reveals a particular group of guests frequently book spa treatments, you can target the group with spa-related promotions. By tailoring marketing efforts to specific guest segments, you can increase conversion rates and generate more revenue from existing and potential guests.

3.) PMS data helps with demand forecasting and inventory management.

Data-driven insights enable hoteliers to forecast demand accurately. By analyzing historical booking patterns and market trends, you can anticipate periods of high and low demand. This information is invaluable for optimizing inventory management.
During high-demand periods, hoteliers can maximize room rates and minimize discounts. Conversely, during low-demand periods, they can offer promotions to fill rooms and generate revenue that might otherwise be lost.

4.) PMS data can be used to enhance the guest experience.

Data-driven decisions can help hoteliers create a more personalized and memorable guest experience. By collecting and analyzing guest data, you can anticipate guest preferences and needs. For example, if a guest frequently requests extra pillows or specific room amenities, this information can be used to prepare the room in advance. A superior guest experience often leads to repeat bookings, positive reviews, and referrals, all contributing to increased revenue.

5.) PMS data helps with operational efficiency and cost reductions.

Data analytics can also be applied to optimize operational processes. By analyzing data related to staff performance, resource allocation, and energy consumption, hoteliers can identify areas where efficiency can be improved and costs can be reduced. Streamlining operations not only reduces expenses it also frees up resources to be reinvested in revenue-generating activities, such as marketing campaigns or property improvements.

It all comes down to the fact that data from your PMS enables you to make informed decisions that directly impact revenue and profitability. By leveraging data to fine-tune pricing, target marketing efforts, forecast demand, enhance guest experiences, and improve operational efficiency, hoteliers can stay competitive in the hospitality industry and maximize their bottom line with the help of their trusty PMS!
