Duetto and H.n.h Hotels & Resorts S.p.A. Enter Into Revenue Strategy Partnership
Venice, Italy, 10 October, 2017 — Duetto, the hospitality industry’s leader in Revenue Strategy technology, has partnered with H.n.h. Hotels & Resorts S.p.A., one of the most important independent players in the Italian hospitality industry, to implement the firm’s cloud solutions to the 11 H.n.h hotels currently operating in Italy. Duetto will also boost the group’s growth both within its domestic market and throughout Europe. The hotel management company already manages a number of independent and branded properties in Italy, and it recently entered into an agreement to manage the DoubleTree by Hilton Trieste.
“There is already a true synergy between Duetto and H.n.h. Hotels & Resorts S.p.A. — they have been adopting a manual Open Pricing policy for the past two years,” said Patrick Bosworth, Co-Founder and CEO of San Francisco-based Duetto. “With our solutions, we hope to streamline and optimise their pricing system giving them a real advantage as they look to expand their portfolio.”
Italy-based H.n.h. Hotels & Resorts S.p.A. is to implement Duetto’s price optimization app, GameChanger, across its portfolio. The company was attracted to Duetto because of its speed of innovation, the flexibility of its solutions, and the ability to implement them in a variety of property types, including resort and city centre properties.
“It is essential today to have tools and technologies that will help us to improve our performance and stay one step ahead of our competitors,” said Francesco Criscuolo, Director of Revenue and Sales of H.n.h. Hotels & Resorts S.p.A. “Duetto is not just a partner. Using this software, it is a challenge for us. It is a challenge because it helps you think outside the box: reorganizing processes and optimizing times, providing complex real-time data and pricing suggestions, driving you toward profitability.”
Luca Boccato, CEO of H.n.h. Hotels & Resorts S.p.A., added: “It is a pleasure to work with Duetto, which will lead us in an even more engineering-based approach to our Revenue Strategy and support the growth plan of our group.”
By adopting Duetto’s GameChanger, H.n.h. Hotels & Resorts S.p.A. will be able to maximize on its Open Pricing philosophy by independently yielding all segments, channels and room types in real time. GameChanger will also enable the hotel management company to draw on web shopping regrets and denials data to better measure guests’ price sensitivity.
