Would online revenue management courses be suitable for my hotel staff?
Hotel revenue management can seem like a dark art to the uninitiated. All those spreadsheets and talk of micro market analytics, RevPAR and GOPPAR is enough to make your head spin!
But with the right training, hotel revenue management need not be such a mystery after all.
Octopus Revenue has launched a new series of online revenue management courses, targeted at every level of expertise, from the absolute beginner on the front desk looking for a solid introduction to basic revenue management, to the veteran hotel revenue manager with years of experience, looking to either refresh their skills or cement their knowledge with formal training.
