Beyond the Roulette Wheel: Revenue Generation for the New Casino

Learning Center| By Sceptre Hospitality Resources 18 September 2017
The Casino model that naturally revolved around gambling revenue is changing. For the first time in history, room profits are outpacing gambling profits in Las Vegas. In Macau, the traditionally easy flow of gaming revenue has been steadily falling for at least the past two years. Though these trends might seem to mark the end of an era to some, for the savvy casino owner, they are indicators of the beginning of a more sustainable, room-centric casino business—one that becomes more possible with the right booking technology used to its best advantage.

Balancing Your Hotel Software Stack

Learning Center| By Sceptre Hospitality Resources 20 June 2017
As if the hotel industry weren’t tough enough, studies have come out this year from STR Global that predict an occupancy drop for the first time since the Recession of 2008, plus an easing of RevPAR. The main reason for this is the incredible volume of new hotels opening from the recovery of the construction industry. Sites like Kayak.com, for instance, are already reporting that average hotel prices in Las Vegas are down by 39% and New York City by 32%. The solution? It’s time for properties to take better control of their hotel software stacks, in particular, their Property Management System (PMS), Central Reservation System (CRS), and Revenue Optimization (RO) system.

Understanding the PMS/CRS/RO Connection for your Best Distribution Strategy

Most hoteliers know that in their increasingly competitive hotel markets, fully-functioning technology channels are key. Just one stroll around any HITEC show floor will reveal the myriad and often mind-boggling choices being offered today. Yet many hoteliers are still having trouble getting the most out of their chosen systems. The root of the problem can often be traced not to the individual systems themselves necessarily, but to the integration of the Property Management System (PMS), Central Reservations System (CRS), and the Revenue Optimization/Revenue Management System (RO or RMS) platforms.
