Posted by Carla Burton on

A longstanding issue for hotel owners and managers is how to maximise revenue and occupancy rates despite the effects of seasonality.  To be effective, revenue and yield management strategies need to consider seasonality but all too often, hotels approach seasonality in blocks of time, rather than looking at each day over a 365 day period, resulting in lost opportunities.

Another seminar ‘Office of the CFOs for Hospitality’ had ended successfully in Hanoi

Posted by Thuy Tien Tran on

Hanoi, 10th September 2013 – Following its previous version, the seminar “Office of the CFO for Hospitality: A new way of working to maximise profits” had ended successfully in Hanoi.

The event was well-received by over 60 representatives from about 35 Hospitality organisations in Vietnam and the media. With years of experiences working with hospitality organisation globally, our experts, Mr. Rick Yvanovich - FCMA, CGMA, FCPA (Aust.) and Mr. Pham Hong Thai - Deputy General Director, TRG International shared their viewpoints and knowledge about the new concept for CFOs and top managers in Hospitality industry. The main point that was emphasised during the event is that, CFOs nowadays is not only responsible to financial management but also to the decision-making process of the organisation. Nonetheless, as a common practice, not just CFOs who need to make decisions but all managers within the organisation do. Thus, it is important to be able to get the information they need, before they need it by leveraging new technologies. Such that, CFOs and top managers nowadays have all the technologies they need to help them overcome financial challenges and improve their hotel management and performance process.


This seminar also carries one CPD hour for people who have CPD requirements such as CIMA, CPA, ACCA and CGMA and networking session for the audiences to meet and discuss with peers, seniors and expert in the Hospitality industry.

By continuing to introduce this Office of the CFO concept in Vietnam, especially for the Hospitality industry, TRG hope to build up stronger relationship with all hospitality organisations, and we hope we could help them shine by providing advices, working quietly and brilliantly in the background, identifying and implementing the right solutions (systems) for them so they can focus more on their core businesses.

Boost profits with technology upgrades

Posted by Carla Burton on

Randy Steinbeck, Vice President of Sky Resorts in Orlando, says, "Forgoing technology upgrades may be sound enough in the short run but the long term effect may not measure up to close scrutiny.  Stay relevant using technology with the guest first and foremost in every decision." With never ending changes and upgrades in technology possible, how will a hotel manager decide which ones to install and what to skip?
