Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) October 26, 2011
Applied Predictive Technologies (APT) announced today that Choice Hotels International, Inc., one of the largest and most successful lodging companies in the world, has signed an agreement to license APT's Test & Learn Management System. Choice Hotels® will use APT’s solution to test strategic and tactical initiatives across more than 6,000 hotels.
With this agreement, Choice Hotels joins industry-leading companies, such as InterContinental Hotels Group, Darden Restaurants, Chico’s, and Publix – who use APT’s Test & Learn solution to evaluate a wide range of decisions regarding marketing, brand offerings, and capital investments.
“The hotel business is dramatically changing with the advent of new technology, new industry participants and new channels for booking hotels,” said Bill Carlson, Senior Vice President of Performance Analytics at Choice Hotels. “This new environment provides great opportunities but potential risks/costs as well. Now more than ever, it is critical for us to precisely allocate marketing, capital, and promotional resources in order to generate maximum profitability for Choice Hotels and its licensees. APT’s ability to accurately predict the impact of various decisions helps us foster confidence before rolling out strategic ideas in the quickly changing hospitality industry.”
