eRevMax forms an Industry-Academia Partnership with Centro Europeu

Last month I attended the Centro Europeu (The European Center), a premier professional training institute in Brazil to give students hands-on training on multiple hotel technology solutions that has become critical for new professionals. The university has partnered with eRevMax the global leader in hotel connectivity solutions to collaborate on skill development and research.

As the hospitality industry in Brazil shifts towards online and mobile, the demand for skilled individuals who understand how technology can be deployed effectively to achieve productive and inclusive growth will only increase. As part of the partnership, the students of Centro Europeu Hotel Management Program receive training from accredited professionals from eRevMax on revenue management and how to use technology products like RateTiger.

eRevMax is the leader in channel management industry from last 15 years and the company has been transforming the hotel online distribution from its inception. Hospitality industry is one of the booming sectors which still lack skilled professionals and our partnership will connect the dot between technology and skilled workforce.



It was an enormous pleasure to see how the future hospitality professionals are keen to learn how technology is shaping the industry. Luis Fernando Queiroz MainguĂ© - Academic Director, Centro Europeu was very excited about this partnership saying, "The use of the eRevMax software in the Revenue Management discipline of the Hospitality Course is in line with the Centro Europeu teaching proposal, which is to meet the real needs of the market and training of professionals for different areas.” He also added, “We are very grateful to eRevMax, because it is partnerships like these that make the course so popular for over 20 years.”

This partnership will help eRevMax to not only build its functional expertise through research collaboration but also contribute to strengthening the industry readiness of the talent stepping out of campuses through curricula building, live projects and various engagement activities.
