Hospitality Management Companies

Seva Procurement is the industry leader in procurement services for hotel management companies.  We recognize that a significant challenge for hotel management companies is the need to continually improve value and profitability for hotel property owners, while reducing the complexity of managing properties with a diverse supplier makeup and frequently changing property personnel.  Supplier fragmentation not only increases product costs, but also accounting complexity resulting from the vast number of vendors.  By consolidating suppliers across the entire hotel management company portfolio, aligned behind best-in-nation supplier contracts, you will be able to utilize the necessary scale to lower costs across the portfolio and provide value to each owner.  

Additionally, with the significant number of personnel changes that occur with each new hotel acquisition, management companies can experience increased difficulties in exerting control over the purchasing process to ensure property compliance to company standards and budgets.  Unlike any other hotel procurement services company, Seva provides both best-in-nation supplier contracts that lower property cost of goods, with cutting-edge technology solutions that enable hotel management companies to easily standardize suppliers across their entire portfolio and monitor compliance against brand standards.  While you may find another hospitality purchasing company that has one of these competencies, there are none that provide both.  A few of the features of the SevaNet technology solutions are:

1) the efficiencies that come from providing your properties with access to a single, online e-Procurement Portal that they can use for all of their suppliers and product needs--whether a Seva supplier or not,

2) the ability to create company-approved, "locked down" order guides within the SevaNet e-Procurement Portal that will only provide product and supplier options that have been organizationally approved,

3) the ability to create "multi-vendor" order guides that contain products from various suppliers--once submitted and approved, a purchase order for each supplier will be generated,

4) the power of loading hotel property budgets into the e-Procurement portal so that property personnel can track each order against their general ledge budget, 

5) the controls that come from the Hotel Purchase Order Workflow & Approval Module that enables you to setup employees with various, customized rules based on their role, the supplier, product category and remaining budget so that purchase orders can be routed to one or more approvers prior to transmission to the corresponding supplier,

6) the assurances that come with a three-way matching delivery acceptance feature that requires employees to accept deliveries within the SevaNet portal by verifying the purchase order against the electronic invoice imported by Seva directly from the supplier, as well as the receiving document, and

7) the efficiencies that come from full accounting integration potential that will automatically feed vendor invoice data for every property directly into the hotel management company accounting system.

Branded Full Service Hospitality

Seva excels at providing procurement solutions for both non-branded and branded full service hotel properties.  Unlike select service hotels, branded full service hospitality has a higher degree of product and supplier flexibility, especially in food & beverage.  While this flexibility creates more ways to differentiate your property, it also creates additional ways to increase costs, decrease efficiencies and jeopardize product consistency and brand integrity.  Branded full service hotels will benefit from Seva's extensive understanding of brand standards and requirements that enable us to know exactly where additional value outside of brand programs can be found.  Additionally, branded full service hotels are typically characterized by a higher number of hotel amenities and management personnel, all of which increase organization complexity.  With the SevaNet e-Procurement platform, full service properties will be able to streamline the purchasing process, all while reducing product and supplier costs by as much as 20%.

Multi-Unit Select Service Hospitality

The Seva Procurement solution for limited service hotel operators is designed to provide “best-in-nation” pricing on all products required by limited service hotel operators. With experience in all hotel brands, Seva has optimized our supplier contracts to ensure we are able to deliver best-in-nation pricing on your required products, and because of our experience with branded select service hotels, our team knows exactly where value can be provided while maintaining your brand standards.  While franchisor programs may provide value on "hard-spec," proprietary products, don't waste those savings by paying too much on all of your non-price controlled products and services.  As a Seva member, you will find tremendous savings on non-controlled products and services, as well as products that have brand specification requirements, but without brand-mandated pricing.

Further, by utilizing SevaNet, owners and executives of multi-unit select service hotel companies are able to maintain strict control over every dollar.  By creating hard-coded order guides in the SevaNet e-Procurement Portal, you will be able to ensure that only those products and suppliers that have been approved will be utilized across your portfolio.  Further, ensure property budgets are maintained by utilizing the hotel Purchase Order Workflow Module along with budgeting rules that will route any order that exceeds a general ledger budget to the supervisor--and because these approval requests are sent electronically, you can quickly review and approve or reject them on your tablet or smartphone from anywhere around the world!
