Verified case study Hotel Tech Report has reached out to hoteliers at SUHA Hospitality to verify this case study.
SUHA Hospitality offers stylish and modern accommodations for those traveling to Dubai on holiday or business. SUHA Hospitality has recently been going through a technology transformation to increase operational efficiency and stay competitive in the dynamic market of Dubai. One of their game-changing investments was Atomize RMS which has helped them increase revenue and saved 3 hours of daily, manual work. Their luxurious hotel apartments are ideally located throughout Dubai. This ensures guests have easy access to the city’s top business, entertainment and lifestyle venues. Given the brand’s ongoing success, several new projects are already in the pipeline.
Why it matters: Learn from the leaders, Rahul Sati, Cluster Director of Revenue, and Walid Mussa, Head of Sales and Marketing at SUHA Hospitality, how they navigated the pandemic and how the company is leveraging innovative technology like Atomize to refine its strategies and drive sales.
  • Dubai has always been a highly dynamic market that requires revenue managers to frequently update their rates to stay competitive. This got magnified when the pandemic upset well-established booking patterns and caused frequent unexpected demand shifts. Consequently, it became extremely challenging to keep up with manually checking demand and updating rates for all SUHA’s hotels, this is the background to SUHA Hospitality´s decicion to implement Atomize RMS.

Top 3 Core Objectives: SUHA Hospitality wanted to invest in a RMS with a high level of automation to be able to remove the tedious task of manual price setting, increase their revenue KPIs and to stay competitive in a dynamic market like Dubai, with continuously shifting demand patterns,
  • Monitor shifting demand: Unexpected demand shifts made it extremely challenging to keep up with manually checking demand and updating rates for all SUHA’s hotels. Needed an RMS that could take market demand into consideration

  • Price automation: Wanted to implement price automation to be able to spend more time on strategic, long-term planning.

  • Invest in success: SUHA aimed for an RMS that could both save costs (manhours) and increase revenue at the same time.

Cluster Director of Revenue

SUHA Hospitality

"Thanks to Atomize, we were able to adapt to demand shifts in real time. That allowed us to seize revenue opportunities we would have likely missed in the past because we weren’t able to update our rates fast enough. Now, we can be sure that our prices are always in line with demand, be it for last-minute bookings or above-average lead times. This has resulted in us continuously outperforming our compset’s ADR since using Atomize."
