Rivasa Hotels experienced a 10% increase in revenue with Hotelogix Cloud PMS

Rivasa hotels offer casual budget accommodation in Goa. They offer simple and down to earth space with colourful decor and excellent service. They are a technology-pro hotel group and they are always willing to adopt better technology for providing better service to their guests. However, they were facing a lot of issues with their existing on-premise PMS. And, it was impacting their business operations, revenue, and reputation. That is when they decided to explore the benefits of cloud technology.

Scenario and Challenges:
  • Absence of real-time integration with external systems

    like Channel Manager, Reputation Management and other systems. This leads to delayed flow of data & information and also makes daily operations very tedious for hotel staff.

  • Pulling out reports

    for each property was very time consuming and cumbersome.

  • Absence of centralized monitoring

    or single point reporting of all properties from a single location.

  • Loss of bookings, overbooking

    and issues of sold out dates leading to overall revenue loss.

  • No real-time reports

    and instant monitoring causing delayed decision making.
