What kind of lodging data will I see? 

Zartico provides insight into direct booking hotel data and STVR. In the Lodging Core module, STVR data is sourced from online booking sites or directly from property management to give you the broadest overview of destination performance.

Key terms used in this module: 

Average Stay Value KPI is the average Unit Revenue by number of Guest Check-ins during a selected time period. Average Stay Value = Unit Revenue / Guest Checkins

Average Length of Stay (LOS) KPI measures the average length of guest stays for a given period. Average Length of Stay = Guest Nights / Guest Check-ins

Average Booking Window represents the number of days between when the reservation is made by the guest and the check-in date. 

ADR (Average Daily Rate) is the average Unit Revenue paid by guests for the Guest Nights in a given time period.

Occupancy KPI is the percentage of Guest Nights out of the total nights in the period.
