Conference Expands ‘Product Roadmap’
Revenue Management leader listens to users for product development guidance
|ATLANTA, GA, April 26, 2007 – The Rainmaker
Group, the world leader in automated revenue
management software and services to the casino gaming, hospitality
and multi-family housing industries for total
property profitability, concluded its third annual Client Steering
Committee meeting after harvesting a gold mine of development ideas from
its power users.
This year’s keynote was delivered by Sheryl E. Kimes Ph.D., the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration professor of operations management, who expanded the group’s thinking with her high-level discussion of effective revenue management strategies for restaurants and food and beverage operators. But when the work was done the group turned its attention to local color and entertainment.
Rainmaker’s Tammy Farley said, “We value our clients and the time they take to work with us, so we did our best to thank them. One evening we had a fantastic non-tourist dinner after hours at a local winery. And for fun we flew in Jimmy Hopper from Las Vegas. Jimmy was named ‘Performer of the Year’ and ‘Pop Vocalist of the Year’ and he gave us an evening of great entertainment.” Farley said the most valuable result of the Conference was the sense of partnership the group developed personally and professionally.
