Revenue Management Professionals with Decades of Experience,
Deliver First-Class Support for Hoteliers Who Get the Duetto Edge
San Francisco, CA – September 2013 / Hospitality 1ST / Duetto, the only cloud-based technology firm focused on revenue management for the hotel industry, announced the expansion of its Customer Success Team to support the accelerating adoption of Duetto Edge – an innovative product that is helping hotels increase revenues by optimizing demand with new data sets while integrating previously unavailable operational intelligence.

Duetto’s Co-Founder and Chief Analytics Officer, Marco Benvenuti, said, “We are pleased to further our commitment to a first-class experience for our customers through our Customer Success team, which gives our customers free access to Revenue Management experts who can help increase profitability. Duetto is unique in offering exceptional depth, experience, and creativity, to help customers achieve the highest and best use of Duetto products at no additional cost.”

The newly expanded Duetto Customer Success team includes:

  • Anuj (AJ) Jenveja, a revenue management and customer satisfaction professional who brings deep experience consulting on revenue management for properties across the country, as well as with Caesars Entertainment Corporation in Las Vegas. 
  • Orie Berezan, a twenty-year hospitality professional who has worked at Four Seasons and brings a PhD from the Hotel Management School at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas. 
  • Gayle Ehrean, who brings close to two decades of hotel experience, including management positions at Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants, Marriott International, Joie de Vivre and Tarsadia Hotels.
Benvenuti concluded, “Led by these top professionals, our Customer Success team delivers innovative solutions to the Revenue Management challenges and opportunities hotels confront every day.” He concluded, “This kind of consultative service typically costs hotels thousands of dollars per month. From day one, it’s been clear that our mission is the success of our customers, and we are committed to an all-inclusive cost model. With the rapid growth in the community of Duetto users, we are glad to provide them with unparalleled support, advice, and Revenue Management guidance from a team of leading professionals.”

Duetto is building momentum in the displacement of legacy on-premise or hosted hotel revenue management systems utilizing Big Data to optimize demand and provide operational intelligence for hotels. It has seen rapid adoption of its flagship Duetto Edge product. Duetto Insight, a product tailored specifically to the needs of select service and independent hotels, was launched last Spring.

Duetto was founded by Wynn executives, Marco Benvenuti and Patrick Bosworth, along with former Salesforce.com Chief Technology Officer, Craig Weissman. The Company uses Big Data to power Duetto Edge, which delivers better insights on demand, improves pricing optimization, forecasting and hotel operations. Early adopters include hotel brands and properties in the United States, Europe and Asia.
