Bend, OR (PRWEB) November 19, 2012
NAVIS, the leader in reservation sales systems for the North American lodging industry, today announced they have acquired LMG Data Mining, Tempe, Arizona, a company that pioneered data mining in the hospitality market. The companies indicated they will combine their data gathering and reporting strengths to develop a more powerful, web-based Business Intelligence system that builds guest profiles and produces actionable marketing data to drive ever increasing reservations and revenue. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
“The NAVIS Reservation Sales System is pulling in massive amounts of data for our hospitality clients – about their agents, their guests, prospects, marketing and their business,” stated Kyle Buehner, CEO of NAVIS. “LMG brings 14 years of experience in developing detailed guest profiles and has the data mining expertise to structure that data into marketing campaigns that get results. Together, our two companies will provide our resort and hotel clients with greater visibility and easier access to their guest data for more targeted marketing.”
According to NAVIS, the popular LMG Data Mining and Returnity products will continue to be offered and supported.
