Celebrating Team Duetto

Our blog is our forum for celebrating our clients’ successes, providing thought leadership on revenue strategy and hotel technology, and delivering news updates to help hotels be better informed about events that could be impacting their business.

It is also our forum for showcasing the amazing talent we have in our team. Working at Duetto is a very special experience and we are lucky to have some of the best engineers, developers, revenue experts and integrations and deployment specialists from around the world as part of Team Duetto.

Here’s a quick round-up of some of the blogs we ran in 2020 that provide insight into some of the many amazing talents we have here:
