OpenComps Turns More Exclusive and Enterprise

As we approach our 16th anniversary (coming in May 2022), we have began contemplating our 2022 (and beyond) plan. As any business, we are only as successful as our customers allow us to be. Without the commercial support of our paying subscribers, we would not have been able to continue our journey, gather all the data and continuously refine our software and service.

As the world’s leading hotel intelligence platform, we are extremely fortunate and grateful to garner the commercial support of some of U.S. largest:

  • public REIT owners;
  • management companies;
  • private equity sponsors;
  • brand operators

… and many other smaller owners, developers, managers, appraisers, analysts, and other players in the hotel finance world.

While we launched with the idea of an open collaboration among the players in the hotel finance world in collecting deal information, the reality is that individual user contributions have been extremely small and limited. In the meantime, we have grown as a service and team to source and categorize most of the information available on OpenComps (and ResiComps) and thus have basically transitioned to an enterprise intelligence service.

With that in mind, over the coming months, we will be transitioning to servicing more exclusively our paying PRO subscribers. Registration and (limited) daily newsletters may continue to be free (for now), but full use of our online service will be more and more exclusive only to our paying customers.

To better reflect our enterprise nature, we will also emphasize our Enterprise PRO subscription as the standard entry into our service. We have learned that our service is better when used and shared across the entire organization. Thus, our Individual PRO plan will transition to serve as an introduction into our service for very small or new organizations who would like to familiarize themselves with OpenComps before deploying across their full enterprise.

To our paying PRO subscribers, THANK YOU! To everyone else, we hope you decide to commercially support our efforts to uphold OpenComps as the best hotel investment intelligence platform IN THE WORLD!

Introducing Enterprise PRO Subscriptions

One of the great new OpenComps features from last year was the ability to create private entries within a workgroup. This moved OpenComps from just an online research service to a real (cloud) software. With this feature, you can take advantage of the incredible database technology that was developed to keep OpenComps’ public coverage of comps, new developments, for sale, debt comps and full P&L financials, to organize your own internal information of the same type. No more crashing-prone Excel files that store ADR & occupancy, or full P&L financials, or your own set of comps, or a list of the for sale offerings you receive from brokers. No more questions like “Where did we store that information?” and “Who saved over the correct Excel file and ruined all my changes?” Now, you can store such crucial competitive information safely, securely and conveniently in OpenComps and make it available to anyone in your workgroup, from anywhere (desktop or mobile).

To encourage the adoption of private entries and collaborations within a workgroup, we are abandoning the per user pricing for group accounts (and manual administration) and instead switching to a flat-rate Enterprise PRO plan, all self-administered online. The Enterprise PRO plans can handle unlimited number of members based on a specified enterprise email domain (e.g. @superprimehotels.com).

PRO Feature Review: Advanced Search

In OpenComps, easy and intuitive design is on top of our minds. To find something on OpenComps, we have a large search bar persistently on top of every page. It is big, it’s easy, it’s quick. (And did you know that pressing “/” on your keyboard on any screen, brings you inside that search bar? Type “?” (Shift+/) to see all keyboard shortcuts.)

However, this basic search is like shooting with a canon; it searches for the given keywords in all database fields at once. Sometimes to kill the right bird, you need to shoot with a rifle, a more refined and precise instrument. This is where Advanced Search — available to all PRO subscribers — comes into play.

Advanced Search

You can find Advanced Search in the More dropdown at the end of the basic search field. On mobile, it is on the rightmost on the home row of buttons at the bottom of the screen. Or, you can type “a /” (a followed by /) as a keyboard shortcut (because you are a power user!).
