The Rainmaker Group (Rainmaker), a leading provider of cloud-based hospitality revenue and profit optimization software, today announced that SKYCITY Entertainment Group has selected Rainmaker’s guestrev® and revintel® to drive revenue at two SKYCITY locations.

The agreement marks Rainmaker’s expansion in the Australian & New Zealand markets.  
 
SKYCITY Entertainment Group, owns six casinos across five locations in Australia and New Zealand. The company sought a revenue management system (RMS) that could help them reveal total guest value across their property and are first focusing these efforts at SKYCITY Hotel and SKYCITY Grand, both located in Auckland, New Zealand. After weighing their options between their current RMS vendor and Rainmaker, they selected Rainmaker solutions, citing the company’s history and understanding of the gaming sector. 
 
“Although we were not unhappy with our current revenue management system, Rainmaker’s understanding of our desire to provide total guest value at our properties led to our decision to move,” said Colin McClean, director of sales at SKYCITY Hotels & Tower. “Rainmaker’s gaming history along with their ability to support a total revenue management strategy gave us the reassurance that we were making the right move. We’re excited to implement guestrev and revintel and look forward to benefiting from the increased revenue they will bring.”
 
This partnership comes at a great time as Rainmaker announces their plan to set up an Australian Data-Center to support their customers and expansion in to the region. 
 
SKYCITY Entertainment has selected the following revenue management and profit optimization software solutions from Rainmaker:
 
guestrev®, an intuitive and easy-to-use revenue management solution that analyzes total guest value across a hotel or casino property to forecast and price rooms;
 
revintel®, an intuitive business intelligence solution that improves day-to-day revenue management by mining various data sets and providing deep insights at a granular level.
 
“The Asia-Pacific region is really looking for someone to make a stand in the gaming market and provide a total revenue management solution,” said Patrick Andres, Rainmaker’s senior vice-president Asia-Pacific, Middle-East and Africa. “Our portfolio of profit optimization and analytics solutions will do just that and we are thrilled to add SKYCITY Entertainment Group to the Rainmaker family. Our next steps in adding a support center in Australia will be of even more benefit to SKYCITY and the rest Australian hospitality market.”
