Rainmaker is the only multifamily solution that is a true revenue optimization model, versus simply yield or rules-based models available in the marketplace. Rainmaker forecasts supply and demand at granular levels in order to optimize price. Consequently, nine of the 13 publicly traded multifamily REITs in the U.S. currently use Rainmaker’s LRO product. Similarly, Rainmaker is the only company offering a solution to the gaming industry that optimizes on total customer value, not just room revenue. Because of this critical differentiator, Rainmaker delivers unsurpassed ROI benefits to its customers and enjoys a significant majority of the market as customers.
“It is an extraordinarily great time for Rainmaker to be serving the multifamily housing industry, where the key to revenue growth is accurate demand forecasting and optimal rent setting to minimize vacancy loss and maximize revenue. Owners and operators are adopting revenue optimization technology at a record pace and it is projected that four out of five professional management operators will adopt revenue management software in the next three years,” said David Su, vice president, NVP.
