Room prize optimization Image

Room prize optimization

Challenge An international hotel group which uses custom-built as well as turnkey solutions to manage bookings, promotions and pricing commissioned Kalinax to look into historical data across key locations and identify any potentially missed opportunities. The analysis looked at different room types and whether promotions were applied. Our Solution Kalinax examined series of
internal and external indicators and KPIs and built models that calculate the optimal price of each booking. Then, the models compare this optimal price to actual and predicted bookings and indicates optimization opportunities. The business can make specific changes which target combinations of product and locations where the impact of a change would be greatest. Key features Tailor-made models which calculate booking characteristics specific to the location, seasonality and room type.

which predict the likely revenue in the next year - where and when will the demand, booking and revenue hit. This enables the business to adjust strategy and make data-driven decisions on investment and planning. Key features Predictive models which provide location specific insights.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the former intelligence director for a multinational logistics services company. My role included driving innovation across the four business units of the company through partnerships with other science agencies and leveraging technology and database tools.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Kalinax?

The company had a long history and a lot of data to go along with that history. We needed support leveraging, structuring, and ultimately making sense of that data so we could provide leadership with actionable insights.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Kalinax’s responsibility was to consult on how to handle and analyze our available data. They primarily helped us to predict the likelihood of future events in regard to customer activity, including points like when we could expect spikes and troughs of new volume. These predictions were made from a large dataset that was entered into prediction engines and algorithms built off them.

What is the team composition?

Kolyo (Founder & CEO) was our main point of contact. Behind the scenes, we also worked with data analysts and scientists, who were responsible for building the algorithms and developing visualization applications.

What is the status of this engagement?

The engagement lasted from June 2014–January 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement? 

Kalinax added a great deal of internal value to our company. The accuracy of the predictions the team gave was incredibly high — at least 10% above industry norms. We even celebrated some of their early findings in various publications.

Ultimately, their work brought enlightenment and a different perspective within the company and helped drive the business forward effectively.

Overall, the engagement was very positive, demonstrating the quality of both their leadership and their broader workforce. They’re a dynamic, young company that’s ahead of the data science curve both in terms of the applications they work with and the caliber of their deliverables. 

How did Kalinax perform from a project management standpoint?

Kalinax is a highly energetic, motivated, and approachable team. They’re committed and results-driven, taking the time to meet with key decision-makers to understand the needs, pains, and objectives of our business. 

Throughout the project, the team kept in close contact and followed a good schedule in terms of progress and milestone reviews, as well as internal updates. They worked on our internal project management program, which allows for a combination of instant messaging, email, and web meetings.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The passion Kalinax brought to the project was the best part of our engagement. They calibrated extremely well with our internal team, making the collaboration feel more like a partnership than a typical client-vendor relationship.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. Working with Kalinax was a highlight of my time with the company.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Take the time to get to know the individuals on Kalinax’s team. Also, define the terms of work early on, like communication approach, milestone check-ins, and objectives.
