SIHOT.INSIGHTS integrates with the company’s product portfolio which includes a PMS, hotel booking engine, POS system, and event management platform. Regarding hotel integration, the tool can be incorporated within Microsoft tech stacks and is accessible across all devices. It can work with other data sources or power existing applications using SIHOT as an open structure. The new tool provides real time reports of commercial performance, accessible to senior management, revenue and operational teams of all levels. It will soon be complemented by F&B reports to allow for a wider management strategy.

Carsten Wernet, executive board member at SIHOT, said: “Hoteliers value data in making smart business decisions, but too often, we found hoteliers getting bogged down in creating reports or interpreting what they were looking at. The new SIHOT.INSIGHTS tool is designed

for hotel teams to have a single source of truth, providing a visual snapshot of operations and revenues for any moment in time. This will help them make informed decisions about the direction of their business. “It’s important to us that it makes life easier for hotel teams,” he continued, “giving them all the information they need at their fingertips to empower them to make smart business decisions. Whether working as part of our PMS or calling on information from multiple data points, SIHOT.INSIGHTS will help hotels set their strategy and assess its performance.” Further information about SIHOT can be found here.
