Most millennials can hardly remember a time when they didn’t have the power of a supercomputer in the palms of their hands. Some members of Generation Z might not even know what a payphone looks like.
What members of these generations do know and remember is that technology, learning and culture make life greater. If they can get those things at work, that’s even better. Today, a growing number of employers are beginning to use technology, learning and culture as employment perks that help them hire and retain the best from these generations, according to the panelists on the How Entrata Can Help You Hire and Retain Employees session at the 2017 Entrata Summit in Park City, Utah.
Entrata’s fifth annual user Summit brought together more than 350 multifamily professionals at the Stein Eriksen Lodge in Park City, Utah. The event kicked off today with keynotes from CEO Dave Bateman and President Chase Harrington. They shared highlights of Entrata’s growth over the past year and plans for future development to a sold out audience.
For decades, homeowners have been reaping benefits from smart home technology. As many as 30% of Americans have already installed smart home technology, and studies show these early adopters are saving an average of $1000 a year and as much as 30 minutes each day. However, the smart home industry’s early focus on homeowners has kept renters in the blind spot of these innovations. In many cases, homeowners’ deeper pockets and stronger desire to invest in their homes have made them the ideal market for a nascent industry, but times are changing. continue

In an era of snaps, tweets, and podcasts, the humble blog may seem a bit archaic, but there’s still a lot of heavy lifting a blog can do for your online marketing efforts. If you’ve ever considered scrapping your blog, or if you *gasp* never created one, it’s time to educate yourself: continue
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.

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.

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.
Like most challenges and successes companies experience, strong cyber security traces back to one factor — the people.
