Hotel Revenue Management SaaS

I struggled in finding a business to start. First there was a CRM system for Realtors and then a food ordering service similar to Seamless Web that just didn't fly.

You could say I sort of cheated in finding my first 3 clients. They happened to be my family's own hotels.

A 5-minute conversation with my father (ok, I'm exaggerating but you get it) and a few google searches led me to realize that a 100 room hotel was on average missing out on $150K in revenue annually from poor revenue management.

There is a lesson to be learned, sometimes the problems that people need solved are right in your backyard.
