Duetto, an innovator in hotel revenue strategy software solutions, has joined the strategic corporate alliance program at the Cornell School of Hotel Administration (SHA) and will donate its flagship product, Duetto Edge, for use at the Statler Hotel, the SHA teaching hotel.

"Revenue management has been a growing and important field of study at the School of Hotel Administration over the past decade, and this new alliance will help us enhance research, education, and outreach in this dynamic area of the hospitality industry," said Joe Strodel, Jr., executive director of corporate affairs at SHA. "We are tremendously grateful for Duetto's support."

"We are excited to start using Duetto at the Statler Hotel," Rick Adie, general manager of the Statler Hotel. "This software will help us maximize revenue and run a successful business and also give students hands-on experience with analytics, pricing, and demand forecasting."
