Staycity Aparthotels – Early Adopters of IDeaS Optix for G3 RMS

Verified case study Hotel Tech Report has reached out to hoteliers at Staycity Aparthotels to verify this case study.
Staycity Aparthotels offers the perfect blend of home and hotel. With nearly 30 aparthotels—and growing fast—Staycity is strategically positioned in many of Europe’s most attractive destination markets.
Why it matters: An expanding portfolio and unique hospitality business model requires granular commercial intelligence and data-driven strategies to succeed, especially when it comes to revenue management. Paula Mullaney, Commercial Director, and Emma Buckley, Head of Revenue Management, oversee Staycity’s revenue team. They’ve leveraged IDeaS since 2014 to optimize their cluster revenue management approach, assigning one revenue manager to every four to seven aparthotels.
  • Staycity’s manual processes for conducting portfolio-wide data analysis were time-consuming but necessary, taking time away from strategy.

Top 3 Core Objectives: IDeaS worked to swiftly implement Optix across Staycity’s portfolio, integrating the module seamlessly with their existing G3 RMS installs. To ensure speedy adoption, IDeaS also provided one-to-one strategic support from an IDeaS industry consultant, who created tailored workshops that helped Staycity maximize their new technology investment.
  • Implement time savings: Move away from reliance on custom reporting

  • Improve performance: Not using outdated, inaccurate insights and reports

  • Enhance team skill set: Elevate organization-wide capabilities to be more confidently strategic
