Fairmas presents hotel financial planning and reporting software with enhanced features at ITB 2018

Fairmas at ITB

February 22, 2018: Fairmas GmbH will be participating once again at the world“s leading travel trade show Internationale Tourismus-Börse Berlin (ITB) with their own exhibitor stand. Individual presentations allow hotel owners, hotel directors, financial directors, controllers and revenue managers to see the value of FairPlanner Online, the web-based software solution for efficient planning of hotel revenue, costs and profits. As the core product of Fairmas, FairPlanner will be introduced with a highlight on its latest additional features including automatic calculation of cost changes on profit and loss, as well as yield. A wider range of reports has also been developed to cater to the different decision levels. In addition, there is a new look and feel to the fully converted web-based application increasing product usability. Also at this year’s ITB, the online version of Pickup Tracking will be presented to a broad audience for the first time. The daily monitoring and reporting solution for hotel revenue management shows reservations „on the books“ per market segment up to 365 days in advance.

Having been able to attract more than 3,000 hotels worldwide since its foundation in 2003, Fairmas“ strong suit is their hotel-specific expertise and in-depth understanding of the unique and complex demands of the hotel industry“s financial planning requirements. The company shareholders and executives“ invaluable experiences, together with their constant exchange with specialists and decision-makers of the hotel industry characterize the development of IT-supported process automation that is tailor made for hotels of all sizes.

Revenue Management in Transition

Digitalization and globalization have profoundly changed the market environment for hotels over the past two decades. The pressures of growing competition, price increases and constantly changing booking behavior of hotel guests over a multitude of different channels force hotel companies today more than ever, to keep an eye on the costs and profitability of all hotel areas – from rooms, laundry to wellness area. The complex corporate structure of hotel companies of today – with different owners and operators, various hotel brands under one umbrella, and multiple locations – requires better comparability of results and easier consolidation at different levels. This is where FairPlanner comes in. By automating and standardizing financial planning processes, FairPlanner uses the hotel“s existing data automatically transferred via interfaces, allowing hotel and revenue management to use accurate data in their targeted budget and financial planning.

The comparative analysis by means of the freely selectable time range, hotel department and segment is done at the touch of a button within FairPlanner. Information about forecast-actual deviations and what-if scenarios are determined quickly and can be easily distributed thanks to its integrated reporting feature. Automation reduces the processing time required and ensures high data quality and accurate data availability. This is an important benefit especially when there is less staff, as the team is able to turn large amounts of data into useful information allowing them to react quickly to changes in order to achieve the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).

In the hotel and tourism industry, digitalization has changed the booking behavior of guests. The customer of today book on short notice, use many different booking channels and is more price sensitive due to the increased transparency. To be able to continue controlling and monitoring the booking behavior with suitable measures, hotels need a tool to keep them up to date with the daily overview of their current hotel booking situation, including pickups and cancellations that can be differentiated by market segments.

With the new products Pickup Tracking Online and Pickup Tracking App, the hotel management has an instrument at hand, with which they get an overview of the booking situation and its changes with a simple click. If required, the pickups can be analyzed in detail according to different individually selectable parameters such as time range, segment or channel.

„Today“s hotel customers are using digitalization to book quickly and easily – it is time for hotels to get relevant information just as quickly and easily, if they aim to get significant market share,“ explains Niels Schroeder, Managing Director of Fairmas GmbH, with a small wink.

„With the new web-based Pickup Tracking Online, the reporting feature has been greatly improved compared to the server-based version. The comparison options have been expanded and the handling is made even more intuitive. We also have the Pickup Tracking APP for a quick overview that is independent of both time and location – having the important information anytime, anywhere, right at the fingertips of the user,“ he added.

Individual presentations in German, English, Spanish or French can be arranged with the Fairmas team at the ITB. The core product, FairPlanner Online, is available in French, Spanish, English, Chinese and German. Pickup Tracking Online is currently available in German and English, with the French and Spanish versions planned for this year.

Visitors can find Fairmas GmbH in the Trade Visitor Hall for Hotel Technology from 7 to 10 March (Hall 10.1 / Booth 115). Individual discussions and presentation appointments can be arranged in advance via the contact form available at

German market for apps is still growing

1.5 bn Euros mark has been broken for the first time in 2017 and according to Bitkom the boom still continues. Go-to-market experts recommend smart entry to the German app and software market.

German market for apps is still growing

German app market is still on the rise.

Villingen-Schwenningen (D), January 31st 2018 – The German market for apps for smartphones and tablets keeps growing and just broke the 1.5 billion Euros mark in 2017. This reports the German high-tech association Bitkom in a recent press release. Based on numbers of the research institute research2guidance, this means almost a tripling compared to the year 2013, when sales were 547 million Euros. Compared with the year 2016, it is a plus of 4 percent.

„The boom continues“, states Achim Berg, president of Bitkom. „With wearables like smartwatches and fitness trackers the ecosystem around apps yet expands significantly.“ In 2017, 1.8 bn apps have been downloaded from the two biggest stores: two thirds accounted to Google“s Play Store, one third accounted to Apple“s App Store. Most of the sales (1.2 bn Euros, 79 percent) were made through in-app features such as the expansion of games, 232 mn Euros (15 percent) through advertisement and 91 mn Euros (6 percent) directly through the purchase price of the app.

The most popular according to Bitkom are apps for social networks, messengers, streaming services and games. On the rise are everyday helpers such as radar apps or apps warning against severe weather as well as fitness and health apps tracking steps or recording travelled distances.

„Germany is a very exciting market for apps and other software products with many many technically oriented customers“, says Bernd Hoeck, founder of bloodsugarmagic and go-to-market expert. „However, 1.8 bn app downloads sound impressive, but you need to relate that to approx. 5 mn apps available in the Google Play and Apple Store. Thus, there are many apps competing for visibility and customer recognition. Vendors need to create a dedicated market entry strategy focusing clearly on the targeted customer segments.“

Acronis Announces Partnership with Plesk, Provides Easy Way to Back Up Servers and Restore Website Data

Acronis – Plesk partnership gives web hosters an opportunity to increase average revenue per user and reduce support calls by allowing web professionals and IT admins to back up and restore their own data.

Acronis Announces Partnership with Plesk, Provides Easy Way to Back Up Servers and Restore Website Data

Plesk will incorporate Acronis Backup Cloud into its website management platform and control panel.

Schaffhausen, CH, January 23, 2018 – Acronis, a global leader in hybrid cloud data protection and storage, today announced that Plesk, a leading WebOps platform, will now incorporate Acronis Backup Cloud into its website management platform and control panel, giving hosting and cloud service providers an easy way to back up Plesk servers and allowing web professionals and IT admins to restore their own data.

To protect Plesk servers, service providers just have to install the Acronis Backup Cloud agent on their physical servers and virtual machines and add the Acronis Backup Cloud extension to the Plesk user interface.

Acronis Backup Cloud is a powerful hybrid cloud backup-as-a-service solution specifically developed for service providers. It offers complete business protection and allows users to store data locally, in the Acronis cloud, or the service provider“s datacenter. It is part of Acronis Data Cloud platform, which also includes disaster recovery, storage, and file sync and share services.

Acronis Backup Cloud integration with Plesk brings a wealth of benefits to web professionals and service providers alike:

* Service providers can run full image server backups, storing them in the Acronis Cloud, and use backup files for disaster recovery or server migration.
* Server backups are visible in the Plesk UI, allowing server administrators to run backups, manage backup space, and offer self-service capabilities to customers for a fee.
* Web professionals can use the familiar Plesk UI to restore their own server environments, files, emails and databases in a secure way.

Website security is a growing concern. Cyber criminals take advantage of website vulnerabilities to inject malicious code and distribute malware, making website files difficult to clean. Files can also be accidentally deleted or lost following an account suspension. This makes backup the only reliable method to ensure site availability and avoid permanent data loss.

„Web professionals understand the importance of protecting their websites but are often intimidated by the complexity of traditional solutions. Acronis Backup Cloud addresses that head on with a one click solution. Once enabled, hosting customers can perform granular self-service recovery of a website or individual files, mailboxes, and databases without contacting support,“ said John Zanni, President of Acronis.

„Partnering with Acronis we bring the world“s best cloud backup solution to millions of Plesk users. „Backup and Restore is no longer a nice-to-have for websites, but a must-have,“ said Nils Hueneke, CEO at Plesk.

Aside from the new look-and-feel, the company continues to focus on its privacy-by-design principle by adding numerous new APIs to its anonymous biometrics recognition service, the BioID® Web Service (BWS). The offer now includes PhotoVerify for automated online identity proofing, the patented anti-spoofing liveness detection as well as the patented periocular eye recognition. Extensive developer documentation detailing how these APIs are used in both web-based and mobile applications are all available on the new Website. Face, eye and voice recognition as well as the extremely powerful liveness detection can also be tested in the integrated Playground. One can explore how BWS can be integrated in a privacy-conscious solution, or how to further secure an online presence using the BioID® multimodal biometrics service. In addition, interested developers and companies may request an exclusive 30-day trial instance for an in-depth testing or proof-of-concept development.

„One of our aims is to make biometric technology available and easy to use for everybody.“ said Ho Chang, BioID® CEO. „The new developer“s website is a result of the valuable feedback, inputs and suggestions we received from our partners and users. Coming soon, we will provide an interactive prototyping platform to shorten the typical evaluation process so that interested developers and companies can quickly move on to take advantage of our service in their intended applications.“
