The Booking Pace and Occupancy Forecasting module provides RDP customers the
ability to analyze forecasted revenue and occupancy and compare the forecasts to
the same time last year. A dozen reports are included, all of
which can be modified with Crystal Reports.
A wide variety of additional reports can easily be created to analyze data.
For example, on 2/1/2011, you could run a report that showed the total number of
rooms booked, and revenue for the period 3/1/2011 to 6/30/2011. The report
includes totals for the same time frame last year (i.e., on 2/1/2010, what was booked
for 3/1/2010 to 6/30/2010). This allows management to analyze if the
booking pace is ahead or behind last year. Any date ranges are possible.
Each night the system takes a "snapshot" of all reservations
and stores this data in a forecast file. This data is stored forever, limited
only by available disk space. The data includes a wide variety of sorting
Weekly Growth Comparison Report
To help analyze growth and booking pace, RDP has created a variety of "Growth
Reports." These reports take two date inputs and then do comparisons and
variances between them. Currently RDP offers daily, weekly, and monthly
options, but further reports can be created based on specific property requests.
The Six Month Booking Reports shows occupied
rooms sold and revenue or occupancy percentages for up to 6 months from the user defined "Booking
Date." RDP offers a variety of Six Month Reports that allow a focus on Group/Wholesalers,
Market Codes, Source of Business, etc.
The Forecasting Snapshot reports show all future reservations from a selected
booking date. The report provides a breakdown per day for arrivals, departures,
stayovers, as well as revenue and occupancy totals.
The Wholesaler / Tour Operator Forecast is a Monthly Cross Tab report showing
Occupied Nights for each day of the month per Wholesaler. This report could
be run for larger or smaller date ranges. Grand and Variance Totals for Current
and Prior Week per Agent are displayed in Report Footer. RDP has also provided
a separate version of this report without the Cross Tab chart. This allows
for a larger range to be run without the formatting issues associated with Cross
