Better Security. Better Rankings. Free.

Posted by: Entrata | Category: Marketing,Services,Technology

A safer internet is an initiative that we can all get behind. Webmasters who implement Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption on their pages help achieve this goal by ensuring more secure server connections. Since 2015 Google has been a cheerleader for SSL certificates, going so far as changing their indexing system last year to actively seek out HTTPS pages. In short, taking the steps to make your website safe not only protects the security of your data and the privacy of your users, it can actually give you a competitive advantage with search engine presence. continue

January 10, 2017 is the day Google said no to pop-ups (also known as interstitials or splash images). While the new change may seem like a hindrance to your current lead generation and marketing practices, it should be welcomed as pop-ups are already reducing the amount of visitors to your site and page duration by more than ten percent.

The new change is all a part of Google’s invigorated effort to improve the user experience on mobile devices. The good news is there is an alternative to improve your prospect experience, make Google happy and get the information you need from prospects. A win-win-win-win-win.

ParcelAlert & The Holiday Mailroom

Posted by: Entrata | Category: Residents,Technology

Christmas is approaching and that means packages, packages, and more packages. As many property management professionals know, the billion dollar online shopping industry shows no signs of slowing down. We probably don’t have to tell you that a typical 200-unit building receives over 50 packages per day. (Multifamily Insiders) It’s clear: property managers need something efficient and effective to clear out their mail rooms.

Cue ParcelAlert. With its new streamlined functionality, getting the right package to the right resident is a no-brainer. Easily sign for packages, search quickly for resident’s information, and scan barcodes from shipping labels to track deliveries. It’s all under control with the ease and organization ParcelAlert provides. Over 11 million packages were processed via ParcelAlert in 2015 and it’s still growing.
