Based on the criteria in the Competitor Index a ranking is created. This ranking is formulated into a weighted average per hotel and the competitor based recommended rate is calculated. For example, when the own hotel has a higher ranking, the system will boost the hotels' rate by using the algorithm.
When one of the hotels in to comp set is priced out of the market, which causes your competitor recommended rate being too high, it is possible to switch this hotel off. When switching the hotel off, it will be shown in the Daily Index, but it will not be used in the calculation.
Additionally, when the recommended rate is always to high/low, the hotel can change their rating. By playing with the criteria in the ranking, the recommended rates will be higher/lower.
