Tulsa, OK (PRWEB) September 26, 2011
Spherexx.com, developer of MarketSurveyTools.com, joined with other multi-family industry sponsors to support the first Apartment Revenue Management Conference in Scottsdale, AZ last week. The concept of having a computer program analyze and recommend pricing is not a new idea: the casino, hotel, airline, and rental car industries have been utilizing this technology for some time. However, computerized revenue management is relatively new to the apartment business. It has become such a focus of interest that the National Apartment Association and Joshua Tree Internet Media, LLC have teamed up to present an educational conference dedicated entirely to revenue management.
30 speakers from leaders in the apartment industry were spearheaded by Robert Cross, the “Guru of Revenue Management” as quoted by the Wall Street Journal. Mr. Cross, Chairman and CEO of Revenue Analytics has been instrumental in advancing industry leading revenue management capabilities to General Motors, Marriott International and InterContinental Hotels Group. He is also the author of the New York Time Business Best Seller, “Revenue Management: Hard Core Tactics for Market Domination.”
Seminar subjects addressed creating new demand, pricing tactics, parallel sectors, amenity assessment, benchmarking, specialty housing, lifecycle optimization, renewals and an interactive session on strategies with Robert Cross.
Becca Wilson, President and CEO of Spherexx.com, developer of MarketSurveyTools.com said, “We are so pleased that the apartment industry has recognized the need for such sophisticated revenue building tools. MarketSurveyTools.com compliments and integrates the pricing initiatives of revenue management systems by compiling and analyzing precise competitive marketing data and it also helps train researchers to polish their pricing skills. Many of our subscribers are trailblazers in revenue management. The conference was a great success, the accommodations were wonderful: as always anticipated from the industry professionals at Joshua Tree and NAA.”
