Then & Now

We’ve come a long way over the past 19 years! In 1998, we started as a two-person team in Alpharetta, GA and today we’re a global corporation and leading technology solution provider – unifying revenue management and demand generation. Our brick and mortar locations and digital presence have evolved to match. It is humbling to look back at how we’ve matured, grown while never forgetting the mission that started it all and the strong foundation we are built on.

Anniversary Celebrations

It has been an epic ride, and we love to celebrate the team members that have been with us for the long haul. Not only do we celebrate each and every year but at the decade mark, we make it extra special. The employees that celebrate their 10 year anniversary get to pick a gift of their choice; something they would never get for themselves including a high-end bike, luxury shoes, etc.

Themed Celebrations

From big events to casual hangouts, we know how to have a great time. Here are some of our favorite get togethers!

In Good Company

We believe that Rainmaker is the standard bearer in Multifamily Housing and Gaming & Hospitality software solutions. We're not alone! Here's what some of the most respected associations and publications have to say about us.

Giving Back is Important

We owe our communities for makin us the success that we are. We demonstrate our gratitude by partnering with local and national organizations, by donating our time and resources as a group. We had a great time working hard and giving back!

Habitat For Humanity

Rainmaker partners with Habitat for Humanity each year to build a place that a family can call home. Seeing the tangible results of our work is a great gift to our team.

Children's Restoration Network

We work with local charities to end hunger in our communities by hosting food drives. Helping to nourish the areas we live in is a simple but powerful way for us to have a positive impact. 

Make-A-Wish Georgia

We love making a difference and making the life of a child with a serious illness better is one of our favorite ways. Through the combination of vonunteering and financial contributions, we help make the dreams of a child come true.

Paying it Forward

We hit the pavement to support local and national organizations several times a year in charity runs. We packaged 463 boxes of food, totalying 11,575 pounds that created 9,260 meals for the Food Bank of the Rockies. During the holiday season, we bought Christmas gifts and jackets, hats, etc. to families in need.
