MINNEAPOLIS, MN & MUNICH – 7 February 2008 – IDeaS, the leading provider of hospitality revenue management and optimisation solutions, announced today that Hotel Berna, Milan, has implemented IDeaS V5i On-demand Revenue Management Solution to manage its pricing strategies.

Hotel Berna is an independent four star hotel located in the heart of Milan, and a sister property of Lugano Dante, Switzerland, a four star hotel which is already successfully employing IDeaS products.

β€œThe extremely positive results obtained in Switzerland were the reason why we have decided to deploy IDeaS’ solutions also in Italy. The relationship with IDeaS is key for our business, as it allows us not only to experience significant revenue increase but also to gain additional competitive advantages over our competitors.” says Carlo Fontana, owner of the hotel.
