Our Entrata Student team had a great time in Orlando in February with NAA’s student housing conference. Here are a few of our favorite takeaways:
-Smart-home technology can be a great fit for the student housing space if operators can get past the fragmentation caused by constantly evolving protocols and focus on smart ways to market the services for optimal ROI.
-Building reports and dashboards around smart technology helps companies make smarter decisions on where to focus budgets. According to Mark Zikra (CA Ventures) it’s hard work, but worth it.
-When you implement smart tech on your property, you’ve got to be ready to support it. Michael Phillips (Phillips Enterprises) compared his site staff to a pseudo tech-support center.
-Entrata clients are the best! Thanks to everyone who stopped by our informal tailgate party in the exhibit hall, participated in our social media contest, and enjoyed fresh t-shirts hot-off-the-grill!
We’ll be back at CampusConnex next year. In the meantime, if you’d like to learn more about how Entrata Student is rocking the student housing industry, contact your RVP or CSM…or check out https://www.entrata.com/student.
