Term Definition
Yield

What is the meaning / definition of Yield in the hospitality industry?

Yield simply means revenue made. But a common mistake is to assume that Yield is the revenue created from the selling of rooms and suites and from in-house services within the hotel. That is not necessarily so! Yield can sometimes also mean the money generated from different outlets trading on the hotel's premises, or connected to it externally. What's more, yield can refer to the profitability of a hotel's departments, measured individually rather than only collectively.

Yield Management

What is the meaning / definition of Yield Management in the hospitality industry?

Simply put, the purpose of Yield Management (aka Revenue Management) is to achieve maximum revenue/profit. To do this, a yield management strategy needs to be both reflective and forward-looking. That is, yield managers should attain a clear yet detailed understanding of what has happened before, and what is happening now. The most efficient way to do this is to draw from historical data to predict what may then happen in the future. So, the process of effective yield management involves understanding, anticipating and reacting to consumer behaviour (to ultimately maximise revenue!).
