Maurizio is the CTO of Bidroom, the first membership-based travel marketplace that aims to make the hotel industry fair for both travelers and hotels.
It’s not controversial to say that the hospitality technology landscape is fragmented, confusing and likely responsible for stifling adoption of modern tools and systems at hotels today. Chief among these is the world of channel managers, revenue management and data - or at least how data is used.
This is why I was interested to talk with Maurizio. Not only is he a “hospitality outsider”, he’s responsible for bringing true change and value to hoteliers at a company working hard to upset the status quo.
Data obviously influences strategy but we don’t often discuss data ownership, whether the data points that you have are relevant, and how to parse mountains of it into one coherent strategy. That’s what we’re trying to unpack in this episode.
Full disclosure - for an operator this can be a lot to get your arms around, and it gets a little in the weeds at times, but in the end I think we bring it around in a way that adds some dimension and nuance which is helpful for the thought process in how to approach a hotels’ technology and strategy roadmap.
