The Booking Pace and Occupancy Forecasting module provides RDP customers with the ability to analyze forecasted revenue and occupancy between two time periods.
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 capabilities.
