MyNewPlace Apartment Internet Listing Service Implements eBilling with OpsTechnology
(April 15, 2009) — OpsTechnology, the multifamily industry’s leading provider of on-demand spend management systems, today announced that MyNewPlace, the third largest apartment Internet Listing Service, with more than 6 million apartment listings nationwide, has joined the OpsTechnology Supplier Community to enable eBilling for its customers. With the OpsTechnology invoice management solution customers will receive eBills from MyNewPlace, eliminating the paper handling associated with invoice processing to improve accuracy, and save money and time.
“We were immediately excited at how it expedites the pay cycle,” said Kenneth Cluff, vice president of technology and co-founder of MyNewPlace. “With this solution, we send one electronic file directly to OpsTechnology. The system routes the invoices to each property which guarantees that they don’t get ‘lost in the mail.’ Our customer can quickly approve the invoice online and transmit it on to their accounting system for payment.”
MyNewPlace already has five key clients on the system, representing more than 300 sites, and anticipates this number to quickly grow. “OpsTechnology is very user-friendly,” Cluff added. “The set up was quick and easy; in less than one week we were up and running and fully integrated with our accounting system. And since OpsTechnology integrates with all the leading property management systems, we don’t have to maintain a separate integration for each of our customers.”
MyNewPlace customers benefit from the solution as well. Because the invoices are electronic, they can be reviewed and approved online; eliminating hours of clerical work for data entry and paper routing, and ensuring accuracy and budget integration.
“MyNewPlace is our first Internet Listing Service client, and we are working with them to continue to streamline operations for their business and for their customers,” said Sukhi Singh, president of
OpsTechnology, a wholly-owned subsidiary of RealPage. “Their enthusiasm and recognition of
the benefits of eInvoicing is a testatment for their dedication to improving the customer experience. This solution will save MyNewPlace considerable time and money every month, because of the sheer volume of invoices they process.”
The OpsTechnology supplier community gives product and service suppliers access to thousands of multifamily properties and allows them to interact online through an on-demand web solution. The community includes hundreds of national, regional and local product and service suppliers such as, HD Supply, G.E., Whirlpool, OfficeMax, and Redi Carpet, across all categories from hardware to temporary staffing.
