Shownotes

Bart-Jan is the Founder of Loreca, a company specializing in online revenue strategies for the hospitality industry. They’ve developed an algorithm that enables hotels to have better control of their rates over multiple booking channels.

Getting on the first page of an OTA seems like a never ending challenge for hotels. And now, as ever more marketing dollars flow into the equation, it may seem like an impossible task. 

This is why I wanted to have Bart-Jan on the show. His company is doing something truly innovative that could be a useful tool to help your hotel gain an edge on its competition, plus with the added benefit of making your operation more efficient.

We dive into how OTA rankings work, the algorithm Loreca has developed, how you can make use of the data provided and much more. 

About Bart-Jan

Bart-Jan is a 23-year old entrepreneur. He founded Loreca in June 2021. Loreca is a Belgian-based-company specialised in online revenue strategies for actors in the hospitality industry. Next to this they founded their own algorithm which embodies visibility on the right channel for the right guest, meaning their client have a top-noted positions on the given OTA's. Due to this their clients are able to play a role in the guessing-process of the willingness to pay from customers, and this is accelerated by the algorithm (which enables pricing segmentation based on the specific customers).
