Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 03, 2012
The Rainmaker Group, the leading provider of revenue management and profit optimization solutions to the multifamily housing and gaming/hospitality industries, announces the release of LRO™ software version 9.3, a broad and comprehensive update to its automated pricing software designed to provide more robust pricing analytics and superior reporting methodologies for owners and operators of multifamily housing units.
“LRO 9.3 gives our customers next generation pricing and reporting,” said Andrew Rains, executive vice president of LRO for The Rainmaker Group. “Through our continual enhancement of system functionality, including first-class reporting and settings, we ensure our customers have a system with the most information-rich data and reports available for the greatest ability to improve their revenue.”
The advancements built into LRO 9.3 include greater rent control functionality, lease expiration management (LEM) enhancements, new dashboard reports and key performance indicator (KPI) summary graphs, as well as additional administrator tools for parameter settings.
“The 9.3 LEM enhancements help us and our on-site teams manage our expirations with better control among lease term categories,” said Jessica Mills, director of revenue management for Carmel Partners, a 34,400-unit real estate company headquartered in Denver, Colo. “The new graphical approach to the LEM process delivers a more streamlined approach to quickly accessing and adjusting our expirations, ensuring greater accuracy with pricing and seasonality.”

This is a big advantage for us and something our field teams have been asking for. The enhancements integrated into LRO 9.3 also deliver greater detailed pricing sheets.” This drill-down information helps to create a sense of urgency and assists in scheduling to improve the sales process, explains Hilton.
