Rainmaker LRO® Partners with World-Class IT Services Provider, Datapipe, for 24-Hour System Monitoring
Jersey City, NJ, January 22, 2014 – The Rainmaker Group, the leading provider of revenue management and profit optimization solutions to the multifamily housing and gaming/hospitality industries, announces its partnership with Datapipe, a single provider solution for managing and securing mission-critical IT services, offering LRO revenue management customers greater system monitoring and disaster recovery. The Jersey City, NJ-based organization worked closely with the Rainmaker IT team to successfully migrate LRO revenue management customers to the new data center in November. Customers are now receiving 24/7/365 full product monitoring to enhance overall operational reliability and performance.
Prior to engaging the partnership, the Rainmaker team conducted an extensive vetting process to determine the best candidate to manage the severity and importance of this task. Due to Datapipe’s wide-ranging background in delivering monitoring and IT services to financial institutions, including seven years of continuous uptime, along with the company’s numerous recognitions and awards in excellence for IT managed services, Rainmaker’s decision was easy.
“We only seek partnerships with the best providers possible,” said Mark Sohl, vice president of technology operations for The Rainmaker Group. “Datapipe is the leading, most robust organization for monitoring and IT recovery solutions. Their close alignment with our desire to deliver only the most available, most reliable and fastest IT services and operations possible made this partnership a natural fit. We believe their steadfast and proven capabilities in system monitoring will bring even greater trust and satisfaction to our customers.”
Open and consistent communication with Rainmaker LRO revenue management users regarding the data migration was high priority for Sohl and Rainmaker LRO’s vice president of operations Pat Flint. “Our customers have come to expect an extremely high level of service from our teams and it was critical we maintain that level of service through this migration,” said Flint. “We performed the migration over a weekend to ensure as little disruption as possible to their pricing services. System dependability should be a non-issue for our customers and we were able to maintain that dependability.”
Furthermore, LRO users can now anticipate significant improvements in their overall system capabilities with the data center including increased capacity and performance.
