Case study header image
Nestled in the captivating landscapes of George, South Africa, Buff and Fellow Eco Cabins is an extraordinary boutique game farm that seamlessly blends rustic charm with unparalleled guest experiences.
Why it matters: From the two initial cabins to the innovative pods inspired by structures in Phuket, Buff and Fellow continually push the boundaries of hospitality. They required an innovative hotel management system that could expand with them while providing an unforgettable stay for guests.
  • RoomRaccoon provided an all-in-one, cloud-based solution that allowed Buff and Fellow to consolidate their tech stack while elevating their operations, boosting revenue and captivating guests.

Top 3 Core Objectives: Buff and Fellow needed a modern hotel management system that could automate their operations and support their business goals.
  • Automate dynamic rates: Buff and Fellow never struggled to fill their rooms, but they did miss out on potential revenue due to manual pricing strategies. They required a system that could dynamically adjust room rates based on real-time demand and market conditions to improve RevPAR.

  • Increase ancillary revenue: Buff and Fellow is well-known for its unique offerings. However, getting the word out about these services was difficult, with most advertising being done through manual emails or at the front desk. They required a modern system to automatically present upcoming guests with a range of added extras and upgrades before their stay.

  • Streamline workflow: Buff and Fellow used a management system incompatible with their accounting software. This frequently caused errors when data had to be transferred from one program to the other. They needed a system capable of integrating with their accounting software to facilitate streamlined management of their finances.
