ROOMDEX, the leader in automated hotel upselling solutions, is happy to announce that, following a very successful pilot with the Chamberlain West Hollywood, Springboard Hospitality has begun activating ROOMDEX’s Upgrade OptimizerTM software in seven more hotels, including:

· The Wilde Resort and Spa (Sedona, AZ)

· Marin Suites Hotel (Corte Madera, CA)

· The Getaway (Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA)

· The Hideaway (Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA)

· The Virginian Lodge (Jackson, WY)

· Waikiki Sand Villa Hotel (Honolulu, HI)

· Ohia Waikiki Studio Suites (Honolulu, HI)

Upgrade OptimizerTM is an automated hotel upsell tool that intelligently calculates the best upgrade offer price and ensures that only available rooms will be offered. Along with the upgrade, guests have the chance to purchase early check-in, late check-out, or an array of other guest services.

“We were intrigued by the claims ROOMDEX made about upsell revenue, so we decided to pilot the product in the Chamberlain,” said Brandon Standerfer,

Corporate Director of Distribution at Springboard Hospitality, “We were going to give it 30 days to see if we could make a 7x return on investment, but within just a few days we were already at 13.6x ROI. That’s when we decided to accelerate the full roll out to the other properties.” 

“Besides the revenue performance, we like ROOMDEX because it is so easy,” Brandon continued, “Configuration takes just a few hours and then we really don’t need to touch the system again. It just works.”

ROOMDEX pilot hotels have reported an average of $85 of additional room product up-sell revenue per up-sold stay since using the hotel upsell tool. Upgrade OptimizerTM room revenue is improving RevPar and boosting ADR when hotels need it most – even during low occupancy.

“Brandon and his team have been great to work with,” said Jos Schaap, CEO and Co-Founder of ROOMDEX, “Their success demonstrates that, even in this challenging recovery, technology innovation can drive incremental revenue if you know where to look for it.”
