Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) February 28, 2012
Applied Predictive Technologies (APT) announced today that La Quinta Inns & Suites, one of the largest operators of limited-service hotels in the United States, has signed an agreement to license APT's Test & Learn Management System. La Quinta will use APT’s solution to test strategic and tactical initiatives across more than 800 hotels.
With this agreement, La Quinta joins industry-leading companies, such as InterContinental Hotels Group, Choice Hotels, Lowe’s, and Publix – who use APT’s Test & Learn solution to evaluate a wide range of ideas regarding media, marketing, labor and capital investment.
“Quantifying the impact of new programs or initiatives is particularly difficult for the hotel industry, due to the industry’s extremely cyclical and seasonal nature, the impact of local conditions, as well as ongoing competitive activities,” said Wayne Goldberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of La Quinta. “APT’s ability to cut through the noise and accurately predict the impact of various programs has enabled us to make business-critical decisions with confidence. APT’s solution has already aided us in identifying the highest ROI remodel strategy, optimizing our sales force and reducing the cannibalization impact of our growing brand. By helping us accurately measure the impact of our initiatives and prevent costly missteps, APT’s data driven software solution is becoming core to the innovation process at La Quinta. ”
“We look forward to working with the La Quinta management as they continue to expand their hotel network and bring high value offerings to their customers,” said Maryam Wehe, Senior Vice President of APT.
