Revenue Management, Optimizes Rates, Occupancy
494-room Hollywood Casino uses revolution to book most profitable customers
|ATLANTA, GA, September 25, 2008 – The
Rainmaker Group, the world leader in automated revenue
management software and services to the gaming hospitality and multifamily
housing industries for total
property profitability, announced the 494-room Hollywood Casino in
Tunica, Mississippi successfully installed the revolution
Product Suite to optimize rates, occupancy and profitability and create
greater operating efficiency.
“The Rainmaker revolution Product Suite enables Hollywood Casino Tunica to optimize total customer profitability based on demand forecasting and competitive factors and helps us fill the hotel with our most profitable customers,” said Rodney Devine, director of hotel operations. “The system also trims 40 to 50 man-hours a week off our previously manual processes for setting rates, coordinating reservations and creating marketing strategy.” Devine said the revolution system is fully interfaced to the hotel’s Agilysys PMS which allows the casino’s ‘player hosts’ to book reservations with optimized rates directly from call-in inquiries to capture more bookings and increase occupancy.
Tammy Farley, principal of The Rainmaker Group, said, “The Hollywood Casino Tunica is a perfect example of how casino hotel companies are relying on Rainmaker’s advanced revenue management software to maximize profitability for their entire operation.” Rainmaker has 10 years of profit optimization experience with top gaming hotel operators like Hollywood Casino. “The property’s team has leveraged revolution’s reporting tools very effectively to run a highly efficient, profit-focused operation; they are a skilled group of professionals that knows their business,” Farley said.
