August 8 2013
Atlanta-based multifamily real estate company champions efficiency & usability with user-centered technology
Lehi, UT --August 8, 2013-- Gables Residential, a nationally-recognized integrated real estate company, announced the launch of Property Solutions' ILS Portal across its portfolio. With the highest standards in training and operational excellence, the Atlanta-based real estate investment trust (REIT) will bring Property Solutions' automated Internet Listing Services (ILS) integration feeds to its portfolio for hands-free posting to all major ILSs, backed with real-time property information. The selection of Property Solutions is consistent with internal initiatives at Gables that seek to bring its associates the most practical, advanced technology possible.
"We need the flexibility to customize and control technology to suit our operations," said Gables Vice President of Information Technology Bob Lamb. Gables Residential prides itself on a loyalty to the end users' needs and has openly accepted and implemented development requests from its associates since 2005. "We're continually listening and responding to feedback from our associates. When it comes to software and technology decisions, we seek out partners who facilitate open communication and customer service in the same manner, as well as provide the real freedom and flexibility to take action."
Earlier this summer, Gables turned to Property Solutions for integrated, automatic ILS marketing through ILS Portal and is currently adopting it portfolio wide. "I like the direction that Property Solutions is taking," said Bob Lamb. "The detailed functionality of their products is well thought-out and effective. With ILS Portal specifically, we get greater product functionality, flexible interface options, and system design liberties that meet our needs."
"Gables Residential recognizes the real implications of purposeful design and online workflow in a way that is at the leading edge of our industry," said Property Solutions CEO Dave Bateman. "They're innovating and driving a new movement in multifamily technology that gives vested consideration to the leasing agents, maintenance specialists, and on-site staff who use their system every day. Companies like Gables won't tolerate static, dinosaur technology, and they shouldn't have to."
"When we can help our associates conserve time and improve efficiency, then they can focus on leasing apartments and serving residents," Lamb explained. "The way that we see technology applied through Property Solutions is conducive to the user experience, which is complementary to our overall strategy moving forward."
