New d2o Website Provides Streamlined Access for Performance Management Intelligence Users Globally, Delivers Easy Access to PMI Features
ATLANTA – November 22, 2010 – d2o, “deadline 2 online,” providers of the web-based Performance Management Intelligence (PMI) suite that enables hotel and resort department heads to intelligently manage their daily costs in approximately 5 minutes a day, today announced the launch of a new website with an enhanced access portal for PMI users. The new portal for d2o’s web-based PMI enterprise performance solution makes it even easier for operators to quickly log on to improve revenue forecasting and labor productivity to increase profitability.
“As we move into the North America market, we are continuously looking for ways to improve our performance management solutions to make them a perfect fit for the way hoteliers work today,” said Young N. Nguyen, founder and CEO of d2o. “With our enhanced user portal, managers at the more than 600 hotels that rely on our PMI solution can access their systems more quickly and easily via a single access point on our new website.”
The enhancements coincide with overall improvements to d2o’s corporate website. By integrating all customer PMI sites to one location, d2o is able to identify trends and recommend best practices to increase profitability for all its clients. Enhancements include more intuitive navigation so operators can use PMI with optimum efficiency to meet daily, weekly, and monthly department goals based on improved performance information delivery.
PMI manages the uncertainties
“PMI is much more than just another business intelligence software,” said Nguyen. “It is an innovative and fun way of controlling daily manageable uncertainties. Our customers tell us that managing revenue and productivity in a hotel without PMI is like driving a car without a dashboard or GPS. We want to continue to earn our reputation for innovation and service every day by strengthening PMI’s functionality, navigation, and ease of access. Our new user portal demonstrates our commitment.”
“PMI helps hotel managers shift their focus to Total Profitability Management,” said Marc Emmanuel, director of pricing and distribution, Hyatt International EAME. “PMI is used as an integrated solution to disseminate the Revenue Management culture to all levels of the operation. Besides its strong forecasting capabilities, PMI transforms data into actionable profitability intelligence.”
Along with its North American expansion, d2o is preparing to launch its PMI Humanized solution soon, which integrates the management intelligence components of the solution with eLearning and social media.
d2o is a hospitality industry innovator in integrated software solutions. Its Performance Management Intelligence (PMI) suite enables hotel and resort department heads to “think like a CFO” and intelligently manage their daily costs in, on average, 5 minutes a day. PMI Revenue and Productivity and PMI Planning enhance and integrate currently installed standalone solutions. PMI combines data on labor and food cost productivity, rolling daily revenue forecasting, and budget planning into a single system. PMI eliminates the stress of daily, weekly, and monthly reporting deadlines by improving delivery of performance information. PMI Planning also distills the normal 3-to-6 month budget planning process into just several hours at month’s end. Please view a demo here.
