Hotel revenue management analytics is cross-functional and cross-disciplinary. Revenue management is key to hotel business because hotel room has fixed capacity, perishable inventory, and time-variable demand. The team of reservation and front desk departments in hotels needs to learn the principles of revenue management regarding how to apply pricing and length-of-stay tools, manage overbooking, forecast demand, and measure the revenue management performance.  Successful revenue management strategies hinge on the ability to forecast demand and to control room availability and length of stay. This practical knowledge also needs to disseminate and communicate to those working in other hotel departments, so that they can collaborate together towards the overall pricing strategies to maximize profitability.
