June 25, 2009
The William F. Harrah College of Hotel Administration at University of Nevada, Las Vegas has installed The Rainmaker Group’s “revolution Product Suite” to enable students to gain hands-on experience with the gaming industry’s most widely used casino hotel revenue management system.
The Rainmaker Group provided its system to UNLV as an educational contribution and the University will incorporate it in class instruction beginning in the fall semester. Rainmaker provides revenue optimization services to companies that include Wynn Las Vegas, MGM MIRAGE, Trump Entertainment Resorts and Harrah’s Entertainment.
“Our executive education programs will be enhanced by allowing us to add revenue management to our offerings. The Rainmaker software will be a great addition to the programs we offer the hospitality industry through the International Gaming Institute,” said Stuart H. Mann, dean and Michael D. Rose distinguished chair of UNLV’s William F. Harrah College of Hotel Administration. “While these times of stressful economic conditions make revenue management critical for the success of hospitality operations, the concepts will be important throughout the careers of our students. This contribution from the industry leader will allow our students to learn from the industry standard.”
Tammy Farley, principal of The Rainmaker Group, noted that Rainmaker partners with the top gaming hotel companies worldwide to implement its systems, so it’s appropriate that it be deployed at UNLV’s respected educational gaming program.
“Using our system will give UNLV’s students a chance to get hands-on experience as they learn revenue management, particularly with a focus on total customer value to the gaming enterprise,” Farley said.
The Rainmaker Group’s solutions for hospitality include the “revolution Product Suite” that maximizes revenue for casino hotels and property groups. revolution is the only revenue management system that considers total customer value, which includes not only hotel revenues, but also revenue from gaming, food and beverage, spa and other significant sources of customer value for determining optimal availability conditions.
