Impact Of The Internet On Hotels
o The Internet modifies all distribution
channels requiring a new marketing
and management model.
o Attempts to integrate Internet distribution
channels into their current management and
marketing models often create confusion and mixed results.
o The new model requires placing the Internet at the center of a
distribution and marketing strategy. The Internet is the ultimate “Direct
Distribution Medium”.
o Internet communication has become the hub for all distribution methods.
Impact Of The Internet On Hotels (Cont.)
o Hoteliers can lose control of their revenue management
by not shifting focus to the Internet.
o Internet services are complex and fragmented
offering few if any overall solutions.
o Coordination of these diverse and often contradictory products and
services falls on the shoulders of hoteliers.
o Poor understanding and coordination results in rate dilution and control
falling into the hands of online discounters.
o By changing focus and gaining control over the Web, hoteliers can regain
control of revenue management and have a significant edge over their
competition who remain mired in the confusion the Web has created.
Internet Services Are Fragmented
o Internet service options are fragmented.
o Properties often use multiple providers with overlapping
or contradictory services.
o Our focus as a company is to help a property
integrate and effectively make use of these
fragmented services.
o This approach allows us to provide our own products and services
when appropriate and to use other vendors where appropriate
without undermining our business.
o The need for consulting and integration will continue regardless
of the directions the Internet takes.
Internet Services Are Fragmented
o Overall coordination of Internet Services are lacking.
o Overall coordination of Internet efforts with property
and revenue management is lacking.
o Coordination and effective use of Internet marketing with other
marketing channels is lacking.
o Internet companies may offer a consolidated approach to the
marketing of a property Web site, but they rarely touch on overall
revenue management or the management of third party
distribution channels.
o Internet services and distribution options are constantly changing
and success depends on the property’s ability to act quickly when
these changes occur.
