For casino hotels, Rainmaker singled out as an exemplary performer and the “go-to solution”
ATLANTA – Sept. 30, 2015 – The Rainmaker Group has been ranked a champion in Info-Tech Research Group’s Vendor Landscape report on revenue management systems, as well as an exemplary performer for casino hotels. The study evaluated eight RMS providers, who were selected for their broad capabilities across multiple platforms and their strong market or reputational presence among mid- and large-sized hotel enterprises. Those dubbed champions earned high scores for most evaluation criteria, offer excellent value, enjoy a strong market presence, and “are usually the trend setters for the industry,” according to Info-Tech’s report.
“With more than 15 years of large casino resort and large hotel group experience, the Rainmaker Group has a keen focus on non-room total guest value components of revenue maximization,” said Larry Fretz, gaming and hospitality practice lead for Info-Tech Research Group.
The report ranks Rainmaker as an exemplary performer in the gaming-hospitality industry specifically, calling it “a leading RMS player” that is “often viewed as the go-to solution.”
Rainmaker’s flagship revenue management solution, GuestREV, was the only product to have all 10 of the evaluated features that were included in the Vendor Landscape study “fully present.” These include channel, competitive rates, big data, events and promotion, groups, multi-property, non-room revenue, reporting, real-time, and availability controls.
Among GuestREV’s competitive strengths, according to the report, is that it “can be deployed via a thick-client SaaS for organizations looking to offload infrastructure, but also on premise for those who want to keep their customer data behind the firewall.” Other strong points noted include pre-built HTNG-compliant integrations with leading PMS systems, including Agilysys LMS and MICROS Opera, and a “very positive” customer experience with support and implementation staff.
The only proven casino revenue management solution that factors total guest value into the optimization process, GuestRev was built upon established forecasting and optimization algorithms to provide the most accurate forecasts for different types of demand as well as optimal pricing. Demand uncertainty is factored into each forecast and profit optimization algorithms consider costs as well as revenues, resulting in both top- and bottom-line growth and rapid ROI after implementation.
GuestREV integrates with leading property management systems as well as in-house and legacy systems.
