(January 16,2002)—RealPage, Inc., a leading provider of property management software and services to the multifamily industry, today announced that its annual technology conference will be held April 17—19 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
The conference, formerly known as the Rent Roll User Conference, has been enhanced over the past two years to address the emerging technology needs of the multifamily industry and to showcase RealPage’s industry-leading software and innovative web-based applications.
“This year’s conference will appeal to all real estate professionals, from executives to property managers,” said Steve Winn, chief executive officer of RealPage. “There are 29 sessions on the agenda that address different aspects of our software, industry issues and our visionary approach to property management—OneSite©.”
OneSite is the first web-based property management system for the multifamily industry. In 2001, four of the nine OneSite product centers—OneSite Leasing
