Multifamily Resident Technology Services Open New Revenue Streams
When it comes to multifamily incremental revenue, RealPage Resident Technology Services help you rack up the nickels and dimes.
Ancillary revenue can be a significant portion of total multifamily, student and assisted living billings and profit, but selecting the wrong vendor or service could cost you more money in lost occupancy. Careful planning is needed during vendor negotiations to avoid costly mistakes, such as:
- Leaving money on the table – our vendor negotiation and compliance practice will get you the biggest revenue share possible
- Having outdated or inadequate infrastructure to deliver high-tech resident-facing services
Do it once; do it right! We have worked with multifamily owners, managers, developers and general contractors to help them:
- Exploit new, technology-based revenue opportunities while minimizing their costs
- Install the best technical infrastructure for apartment communities
- Ensure the best quality technology service delivery to residents
- Plan and launch custom resident technology services to boost revenue
