Auditing will drive better revenue for your hotel

Intense competition and persistent economic uncertainty mean that it’s imperative to continuously assess and optimise opportunities to improve your hotel’s operations and performance, minimise risks, reduce costs and grow revenue.

This is where a revenue management audit can help. An independent, comprehensive audit is the perfect way to determine whether your hotel is meeting expectations and to identify where improvements and amendments are required in order to increase revenue.

A professional revenue management audit will provide you with:

  • An in-depth review of revenue management within your hotel
  • Impartial and honest feedback to the performance within your industry
  • Recommendations where to focus on key revenue management areas
  • Advice on how to improve problem areas with revenue management solutions
  • Guidance on how to improve profitability and instigate regular analysis techniques

The hotel revenue management audit will cover important areas that affect the business performance, including:

  • Price positioning and structure
  • Distribution strategy and assessment of the hotel’s website performance

The revenue management audit should also cover an investigation into in-house procedures, policies and forecasting methodologies, the results of which can form the base of future objectives.

A full revenue management audit will take between one and three days depending on the size of your business and you will receive a detailed report highlighting the above points.
