RealPage strengthens its European team with the appointment of Jon Gittins to develop the Revenue Management side of the business. Jon has been working in the lettings business for over 15 years and most recently within the PRS and Build to Rent Sector at Knight Frank.
“Having worked in the Build to Rent sector as an operator with a range of clients, I have built up a good understanding of the challenges they face.”Jon Gittins, Revenue Management Account Representative, RealPage
Jon’s role has been newly created to specifically help customers succeed with Revenue Management.
“I am looking forward to working with our customers and helping them understand the full benefits of Revenue Management and how it can optimise the performance of their Build to Rent development.
“I am delighted to have the opportunity to continue working within the same industry as it gains pace. It’s great seeing the diverse range of developments coming to the market across the UK, each having their own set of values, community and facilities to improve the experience for their residents. The opportunity to be able to help both owners and operators of these properties improve the performance of their assets from the initial lease up phase right the way through to renewal and re-let is really exciting.”Jon Gittins, Revenue Management Account Representative, RealPage
Jon has already been able to get involved with RealPage’s client base and is quickly understanding the benefits the Revenue Management Solution brings to owners and operators.
“One of the main features of the RealPage Revenue Management solution, I wish I had the opportunity to use when I was working as an operator, is the pricing matrix, it creates a daily pricing schedule for the operator to use to fully support the owner’s strategy for the asset.
“It also provides the operator the autonomy to agree a price without having to wait for the owner’s approval but still in the knowledge that that agreed price supports the owner’s strategy.
“With my previous background in accounting, I am also a big fan of the dashboard reporting function as this provides compete transparency for operators, owners and investors on the progress of each asset.”Jon Gittins, Revenue Management Account Representative, RealPage
