Duetto And Komani Gaming Team Up To Help Casino Hotels & Resorts Increase Profitability


Innovators partner to bring powerful insights on total guest spend into pricing decisions

SAN FRANCISCO and LAS VEGAS, Aug. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Casino hotel and resort profit optimization software provider, Duetto, today announced the integration of Duetto GameChanger with Konami Gaming, Inc.

Konami is the leading innovator of slot machines and gaming enterprise management systems for the global gaming market and is the Las Vegas-based subsidiary of Konami Corporation (NYSE: KNM).

Connectivity with Konami allows Duetto to leverage rich customer data that includes gaming as well as non-gaming spend for more sophisticated room pricing recommendations and offers.

Co-Founder and Chief Analytics & Product Officer for Duetto, Marco Benvenuti, said, "Total spend data from Konami allows us to price rooms down to the individual customer based on their individual profit potential. This means better insights and more revenue for our casino resort and hotel customers. Our application is built to bring casinos the ability price all room types, channels and dates independently of each other to maximize profitability. These are powerful tools for resorts with a broad range of rooms and rates."

Konami's patron management system tracks customer spend throughout the entire casino resort. Customers can use the same loyalty card at the tables, slots, spa, restaurants, golf course and anywhere else. The associated loyalty program tracks total spend rather than simply accumulating points. As a result, valued customers earn better deals and comps based on their patronage.

"Guests should feel confident casino hotels will recognize and value their business in whatever form it takes. This is the future of loyalty programs and one good for both casinos and consumers. We anticipate an positive impact on profitability, guest experiences and operational efficiencies," said Steve Sutherland, Executive VP and COO of Konami Gaming.
