Yotel, Duetto Enter Tech Partnership

SAN FRANCISCO—Hospitality brand Yotel has partnered with Duetto, a provider of cloud-based revenue strategy applications, to streamline its revenue processes and maximize profitability across its European operations. Yotel  is implementing Duetto’s pricing application, GameChanger, and its solution for intelligent reporting, ScoreBoard, in eight properties across the globe, totaling 2,776 rooms.

Using GameChanger, which delivers real-time pricing optimization, Yotel will be able to deliver increased value to its guests with a competitive open pricing strategy that will also enhance the company’s bottom line, according to the company.

ScoreBoard will enable Yotel teams, both on-property and at head office, to be able to quickly and efficiently produce forecasts, budgets and multi-property reports, helping to streamline operations and free up more time for strategy, the company also reported.

“Yotel is a trailblazer when it comes to hospitality—pioneering the smart hotel and now leading the field with its robotic luggage concierge, Yobot, in the US. We are excited about this partnership and look forward to working together on further innovations in hotel pricing and revenue strategy,” said David Woolenberg, CEo of Duetto.

“We are thrilled to partner with Duetto—a company that is as forward-looking about the hospitality business as Yotel. Our guest-facing product is innovative and technology driven, and it is therefore imperative that our back-of-house operations should be equally cutting edge,” said Joe Pettigrew, SVP, commercial strategy for Yotel.

Yotel operates properties in airports and cities around the world. Its YotelAir properties in Europe include London Gatwick, London Heathrow, Paris Charles De Gaulle and Schiphol. It also operates hotels in Edinburgh, Amsterdam and Istanbul, as well as properties in the U.S. and Singapore. The brand will open five more hotels across Europe in the next nine months.
