Release notes - November 23, 2020
Reservations & Lost Business (Res + LB) Non-Room Revenue Categories
In addition to a total figure, you will now be able to view your expected and actual non-room revenue broken out into as many as nine non-room revenue/ancillary spend categories. Simply tick the Show All Revenue Categories box before running the report and your non-room revenue will be divided among user-defined categories such as F&B, Spa, Golf, Retail, Gaming or Recreation (define category names specific to your hotel and data).
This new level of transparency can provide invaluable insights for your strategic planning. For example, let's say your actual non-room revenue for the past 7 days was greater than your expected non-room revenue. Understanding what control segment(s) had the bigger variance and which specific non-room revenue categories were responsible for the increase allows you to capitalize on a potential new strategy. Additionally, you'll be able to see if you should expect that trend to continue with on-the-books reservations.
