Managing vendors requires more than performing a background check.
Without the right solution, the vetting process can be tedious and complex. Missteps and errors can cost you in increasing expenses, risk and fraud. RealPage Vendor Credentialing is a full-service solution that can be customized to your unique business requirements. Work with the vendors you want who meet your compliance requirements with the flexibility to set insurance requirements at the company level or at the property level. Intuitive dashboards provide visibility into their compliance status, success metrics, background checks, risk levels and more for a comprehensive performance profile to aid your selection process.
And now RealPage provides 3 additional tools and services to help vendors keep their insurance and documentation current for your properties.
1. NEW Vendor Mobile App
RealPage helps your vendors stay current and connected with the RealPage Vendor Mobile App.
We realize vendors are constantly “on the go” and the new Vendor Mobile App can assist vendors with staying connected. The new mobile solution has been developed just for vendors is now available in the Apple and Android stores!
Now your vendors can conduct many common tasks from the convenience of their phone:
- View their clients and serviced properties
- Link new properties to existing clients
- Check their status per client
- Upload documents
- Review outstanding issues
- Update company details, such as identifying the vendor’s insurance agent, adding principal information and more.
2. NEW Ability to Contact the Vendor's Insurance Agent
Vendors can now add contact information for their insurance agent(s). This information ensures that RealPage reaches out to the correct person when working on vendor insurance documentation. The contact information reflected on certificates often reflects a generic office contact who may not be familiar with the vendor’s policy, which may cause delays. Working directly with an identified agent will help your vendors get their documentation updated and approved for work faster.
3. NEW Certificial Process
RealPage has partnered with Certificial to enhance our insurance document collection process and ability to reach specified agents.
Certificial is a third-party provider that integrates with the existing software packages used by insurance agents nationwide for managing insurance policies, including the preparation of insurance certificates and policy endorsements.
What does this mean for your vendors? Once your vendor provides authorization for RealPage to contact their insurance agent, they can start to benefit from Certificial document collection services.
Going forward agents will see document requests from RealPage Vendor Credentialing – these requests will be shared through Certificial and will populate within their Agency Management System (AMS). Agents will have the ability to respond to requests and provide documents without relying solely upon emailed notifications. Certificial can also notify agents when a requested item, such as an endorsement, has not been attached during the submission process.

RealPage made the program changes to help us accomplish this very smoothly—going well beyond what we expected."
