Company rapidly expands its customer base of the business intelligence tool revintel® across properties in the Middle East

ALPHARETTA, GA. — December 4, 2018 —The Rainmaker Group (Rainmaker), a leading provider of cloud-based hospitality revenue and profit optimization software, today announced the rapid expansion of use of the business intelligence tool, revintel, across properties in the Middle East, including the Grand Excelsior. The latest property to embrace revintel come in addition to the existing portfolio of Movenpick and Rosewood Hotels, along with the Five Dubai, the Palazzo Versace, and the Nobu Riyadh.

“We sought a tool that would save us time and provide easier access to a wider and more valid source of analytics across our organization,” said Muhammad Atif Ali, Director of Revenue for the Palazzo Versace Dubai. “Rainmaker’s revintel gives us access to exactly the data we need at our fingertips.”

revintel is a web-based application which combines data from disparate systems to generate actionable insights designed to accelerate revenue growth. The business intelligence tool provides properties, hotel management groups, owners and asset managers with detailed visibility into leading and lagging revenue-oriented data across their entire profile.

“revintel gives factual insights into business, which guides tactics needed in order to gain market share and increase RevPAR,” said Abhishek Lakhotia, Director of Revenue for Five Palm Jumeriah Dubai. “revintel is very user friendly and easy to navigate.”

“Five Palm opened its doors on March 31, 2017. Year on year growth through September 18th of this year has been over 200% but, of course, being in our second year of business, this is the expected ramp up,” Lahkotia said. “Growth in the months of October and November is approximately 20% on RevPAR where we can see the competitive set dropping, & revintel has definitely contributed to part of this growth.”

Rainmaker announced their expansion of its Middle East and Africa operations earlier this year by naming Hicham Diab as regional director of business development. “We are very excited about the Middle East embracing revintel and for the prospect of growth in the region,” said Patrick Andres, SVP of Asia-Pacific, Middle-East and Africa. “I attribute a solid amount of this growth to the appointment of Hicham and through the expansion of our physical presence in the area, including our office in Dubai. We look forward to continued conversations with properties in the Middle East looking to add a powerful tool like revintel to their revenue management capabilities.”
