September 20, 2018 10:14am
ALPHARETTA, GA. — September , 2018 —The Rainmaker Group (Rainmaker), a leading provider of cloud-based hospitality revenue and profit optimization software announces a full integration between Rainmaker’s premier revenue management system, guestrev®, and SHR, Sceptre Hospitality Resources, a pioneer of advanced hotel distribution technologies and developer of Windsurfer® CRS.
This integration allows guestrev® to send pricing recommendations directly to Windsurfer CRS, giving properties the ability to access strategic information as they make pricing decisions. Hotel properties that utilize both guestrev® and Windsurfer will be able to see Daily Rates, overbooking (at the property level or room type level), and Open/Close to Stay-Through within the CRS, instead of waiting for their PMS to relay the same data.
We are excited to partner with SHR on a streamlined technology integration between Windsurfer® CRS and Rainmaker’s guestrev® profit optimization solution. This real-time integration will provide SHR and Rainmaker customers with increased profitability through dynamic pricing capabilities,” said Mike Cowles, CEO of Rainmaker. “We understand the importance of working with best in class companies to provide quality experiences for our customers and we are proud to have Windsurfer® CRS as a new integration partner.”
Nicole Adair, Corporate Director of Revenue Management for SHR agrees. “At SHR, we recognize the importance of a data-driven revenue management strategy and are looking forward to bringing the power of our Windsurfer CRS distribution platform to Rainmaker RMS clients,” she said. “This integration will allow our mutual clients to more seamlessly deploy their revenue strategy across distribution channels, and significantly reduce their manual processes.”
