Success in the hotel sector takes more than just a beautiful product with great facilities. It takes in-depth understanding of the business environment, the ability to attract and develop first-class operational teams, robust processes & systems, hotel services and the capacity to deliver consistent profitability in an increasingly competitive market.
Rooms management is one of the most important aspects of revenue generation, and requires a high level of operator skills and training. We use both external and internal monitoring systems to ensure that we maximise the business potential of the rooms business.
Sales & Marketing
These are two separate and distinct areas of the business and both extremely different. We have developed an extremely good understanding of both the local Irish market and the fast growing international market. An area renowned for large budgets that can be used up quickly providing little or no return if not managed carefully. All S&M campaigns in our group are managed and reviewed centrally in a ROI (return of investment) model and this prevents waste and delivers results.
Hotel network IT support has never been as important as it is now, our team are accessible 24/7 and offering hotel services for all on-site technical issues. Providing daily on-site property management with remote & phone support as a backup. Critical data management of back-ups, virus updates, IT network health, ad-hoc technical issues, and network change management are all part of our management services. We manage all outsourced maintenance and support contracts for all sites, our team also has experience in all areas of procurement, installation & configuration of new IT systems.
Effective day-to-day management is crucial to a successful business. We will review all of these aspects to ensure that the focus and energy of the team are directed to the right areas of the business.
As this is one of the highest areas of cost, we ensure the right people skills and knowledge are in place to develop the business. Providing best practise leadership on all aspects, team & individual development, including: recruitment, advertisement, selection tools, the selection process, facilitation of Management Development Programme, employment and legal requirements, compliance, training & development for all key personnel. Finally, management of the property payroll cost.
Choice Hotel Group provides the complete solution for all requirements in a competitive market. We work on the purchase basket approach to maintain the best pricing for our properties. We work locally with the hotel to identify saving across our portfolio of services and we manage and maintain compliance monthly. Combined, this guarantees best pricing, product and service from our suppliers.
We have best practice financial management tools in place to ensure the smooth control of the business. Financial management is a key component of our service in Choice Hotel Group. Centralised reporting enables local and senior management to access real-time financial information, allowing real-time decision making and analysis of current trends within the business.
