What we do
Our purpose is to provide hoteliers with data insights that will result in growing profit margins, give them a competitive edge, and ultimately increase asset value. Our HummingbirdPXM commercial strategy platform offers swift access to our comprehensive data set that enables tactics to grow profits with lean commercial staffing, empowering hotels to deliver stronger gross operating profits (GOP) leading to better net operating income (NOI) results.
In 2012, Cindy Estis Green co-authored the groundbreaking study Distribution Channel Analysis: A Guide for Hotels and delved into the implications of rising acquisition costs for hotels. She realized that in order to limit the dependence on high-cost digital channels, hotel owners and operators need to manage the balance between direct and third-party business. In working with many hotel stakeholders, it was clear that the industry needed to routinely measure the effect of customer acquisition costs on profit and monitor the actions taken to improve net revenue.
Knowing the challenges posed by digital disruption for many industries, Estis Green launched Kalibri Labs in order to offer the hospitality industry a platform to help keep the hospitality industry competitive. Enabling a more accurate means to evaluate and predict hotel performance, Kalibri Labs set out to offer analytics tools that put a focus on ways to make commercial decisions that grow profitability, ensuring management teams can sustain healthy asset values.
Major hotel companies, representing over 100 brands provide daily or weekly data to Kalibri Labs so hotels can assess their revenue performance and profit contribution against realistic benchmarks by market, submarket and groups of statistically correlated competitors.
