Pinnacle Selects YieldStar® Price Optimizer


(August 19, 2010)—YieldStar (, a leading provider of revenue management systems for the multifamily industry and a division of RealPage, Inc., (, today announces that Pinnacle selected YieldStar® Price Optimizer for revenue management.

“The multifamily industry is clearly embracing revenue management. We wanted to determine the kinds of returns we could achieve with this technology.” said Rick Graf, president of Pinnacle.

Pinnacle chose Price Optimizer after a thorough review of available revenue management solutions and the successful completion of a six-month evaluation program on 11 properties.

“We didn’t feel right recommending a revenue management system to our clients without first putting it through its paces on our own properties,” added Graf. “The revenue premiums that Price Optimizer can produce are a powerful tool for us and for our clients.”

“We achieved better than expected results,” continued Graf. “It was exciting to see an average revenue outperformance of three percent across the properties. We were pleased with the impact YieldStar had on both our rents and our occupancies.”

As the largest apartment fee management company in the multifamily industry, according to the 2010 NMHC 50 report, Pinnacle is excited to add revenue management to its core service offering, and is in the process of implementing Price Optimizer on additional properties within its owned portfolio as well as for its fee clients around the country.
