Property Solutions Pioneers the Multifamily Industry's First App Store
June 18 2013
New open app development platform includes Rainmaker LRO, J Turner Research, and Lexis Nexis
Lehi, UT --June 18, 2013-- Property Solutions, the multifamily industry's single sign-on Platform as a Service (PaaS) provider, announces key additions to its Entrata App Store--the only free, open-access marketplace for third-party vendor app development. Hosted through Property Solutions' Entrata Core property management software, users can access the app store's external vendor systems, including Rainmaker LRO, J Turner Research, CORT, Purqz, Hunter Warfield, and First Advantage (Lexis Nexis), without additional logins and completely free of integration charges. The Entrata App Store is based on a philosophy of open, easy access and seeks to empower customers with the freedom to choose services that best fit their company's needs.
Launched in April, Property Solutions' Entrata PaaS brings a comprehensive suite of technology together under one unified platform through a single interface, and the scope of the platform's reach now hits limitless potential through its free, open-API app store. "Property management clients have been eagerly awaiting advancements in technology that make the many facets of their job more efficient and easier," shared Hunter Warfield's Greg Duss. "The Entrata App Store better enables clients to thrive in their online management by launching a variety of software solutions through a preferred platform."
"There is so much needless complexity and politics with industry integrations. We're tearing down the red tape, and putting the power in the hands of our customers," said Property Solutions CEO Dave Bateman. With the Entrata App Store, customers grant one-time authentication credentials and permissions at first access. The app is then configured, and data is freely exchanged between their chosen software providers without charge. "We give companies the freedom to manage the tools they want, without the fees, the choppy databases, or the multiple logins. It's open. It's easy. And it's free."
"This free offering that Entrata provides its customers is the future of technology--open access architecture and seamless integration," said Scott Papenfus with CORT, which offers robust ILS services on ApartmentSearch.com. "We are very excited to be included in the new Entrata App Store and we're certainly honored to be a part of this project which will help make clients' lives much easier and more profitable."
A number of multifamily vendors specializing in a variety of services and markets nationwide have already joined the Entrata App Store, including Notivus, Rent Recovery Solutions, and Dynamic Lead Solutions. "The Entrata App Store will change the way multifamily decision makers think about their technology," said Saul Wertzer, President of Rent Recovery Solutions. "Ease of access for clients is fast and seamless."
"The new app store is a great benefit to our clients," commented Scott Hammond, CEO at Purqz, a company that helps communities build resident loyalty through exclusive merchant discounts. "It simplifies technology for current Purqz communities, and opens up a wealth of new possibilities for property management companies that are moving and innovating with diverse tools." The Entrata App Store is open to vendors and companies of all specialities, and interested parties are asked to visit propertysolutions.com/app-store to learn more about app opportunities and technical details.
Entrata Core, Property Solutions' free property management software, will extend access to the app store among all users later this summer. Entrata Core is currently in open beta, and portfolios can secure immediate self-provisioned access at propertysolutions.com/entrata-sign-up. Current Property Solutions clients are encouraged to contact their client executive or call 1.877.826.9700 to learn how to get started.
