Leading management company brings built-in online screening to 60 properties
Lehi, UT --March 18, 2013-- Wasatch Property Management, influential multi-housing contingent of the western states, announces its selection of Property Solutions for fully-integrated applicant screening, seamlessly embedded within Property Solutions' single platform software. With a strong product suite including ProspectPortal, ResidentPortal, MobilePortal, ILS Portal, and ResidentPay, already in use throughout Wasatch Property Management's 15,800-unit portfolio, the addition of Property Solutions' ResidentVerify aligns with the company's objective to streamline technology operations for a more fluid leasing experience.
When making technology decisions, the leadership at Wasatch recognizes the value of a single platform. "The real reason is efficiency. The fewer systems we have to interact with, and the more streamlined our process, the better," said Jarom Johnson, Controller at Wasatch Property Management. "Our site locations are the real operating piece of our business. That's where our money is made. So we strive to alleviate the stress for on-site personnel that stems from having to use multiple systems, and Property Solutions has allowed us to do that."
Working in unison with ProspectPortal's online applications, ResidentVerify is built seamlessly into the Property Solutions system in order to immediately usher the applicant through the approval process with as few logistical obstructions as possible. "Because everything from the application fees, to the availability, to the verification is all connected in a sequential flow, our applicants can be processed immediately and approved faster," said Johnson. "It's tedious and time consuming for everyone involved when one step is done on a given system, another is done elsewhere, and all the rest are hosted in yet another location. But we're now able to consolidate all the steps in one location. We have a clean, precise outline of the important elements, in a rapid fashion."
The benefits of using Property Solutions' single platform are also evidenced in the increased centralization of training and support. "It allows us to have a single support individual to act as a resource and point of contact for multiple services, which has brought greater efficiency to our internal inquiries process," explained Johnson. "And from my perspective as an administrator, I've worked with the same individual sales representative from the start. If anything comes up, I've got a familiar face that really understands what we're trying to accomplish and really understands our position."
"The vision that Wasatch Property Management has for a simplified, streamlined technology approach is further proof of their leadership in our industry," said Dave Bateman, Property Solutions CEO. "Throughout this partnership, we plan to continue building the most centralized software solutions available, so that their communities can uphold the level of efficiency and performance that is characteristic of the company's portfolio."
