Sabre reveals findings of revenue optimizer study

Sabre Corporation (NASDAQ : SABR) has announced the findings of a study evaluating its next generation Revenue Optimizer solution, the company said.

PODS Research LLC (PRL), the premier consulting partnership renowned for its study of revenue management systems and practices, evaluated Revenue Optimizer and noted the new solution´s “much improved architecture, speed and stability” compared to previous versions.

PRL consultants also found the underlying models to be “theoretically sound and based on solid science” and “struggled to find major modeling or other weaknesses.” Adding to PRL´s findings, long-standing Sabre partners Aegean Airlines, Aerolíneas Argentinas and Ethiopian Airlines have endorsed Revenue Optimizer following their successful evaluation and initial experiences with the solution.

For Aerolíneas Argentinas, the flag carrier of Argentina, implementing Revenue Optimizer was a crucial goal in 2018.

Sabre plans to launch two additional pricing solutions that complement Revenue Optimizer — Fares Optimizer and Dynamic Availability — next month at Aviation Festival 2018, one of the largest aviation and travel technology shows in the world.
