LAS VEGAS, Nov. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Duetto, the market leader in hotel profit optimization software, announced that the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino will implement its GameChanger solution, bringing new forecasting and price optimization capabilities to the iconic 2,973-room property. Recently purchased by Westgate Resorts, the property is undergoing a major overhaul, and selected GameChanger to optimize revenues, given its mix of gaming, convention and time share customers. The agreement with Duetto is a multi-year partnership.
Jared Saft, Vice President Hotel Sales & Marketing, Revenue Management and Timeshare Operations, said, "We are excited to work with Duetto to leverage the rich customer data provided by GameChanger, which includes gaming as well as non-gaming spend." He concluded, "Our resort has many different room types and a unique mix of customers, and GameChanger offers us the ability to price by customer segment and at the room type level, bringing us the benefits of 'open pricing.' We look forward to leveraging that opportunity in the months ahead."
Duetto's GameChanger application is designed to provide casino hotels with the ability price all room types, channels and dates independent of one another, to maximize profitability -- powerful tools for hotels and resorts with a broad range of rooms and rates.
