Cloud-Based Comprehensive Property Management Software Company Provides Single-Login, Open-Access Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) System
Wellesley, Mass. - April 8, 2014 -THINKstrategies, Inc., the leading strategic consulting company focused on the business implications of the Cloud Computing services market, announced today that Property Solutions has been named a winner of the Cloud Computing Business Value (CCBV) Award. This program promotes the measurable business benefits delivered by today's Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions.
The CCBV Awards is an ongoing program administered by THINKstrategies' Cloud Computing Showplace to recognize Cloud companies that are delivering measurable business benefits to specific user organizations. These benefits can include increased sales, lower costs, higher customer satisfaction, faster operations and greater profitability.
Property Solutions is the only comprehensive property management software provider with a single-login, open-access PaaS system. Property Solutions' Entrata PaaS offers a wide variety of online tools including websites, mobile apps, payments, lease signing, accounting, and resident management. It currently serves more than 20,000 apartment communities nationwide, including 28 of the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC) Top 50 Largest Managers. Property Solutions' open API and third-party integrations offer management companies the freedom to choose the technology and software that best fit their needs.
The measurable business benefits gained from Property Solutions' PaaS capabilities were recently evidenced by ROSS Management Services, 12,000-unit multifamily residential affiliate of Maryland-based ROSS Companies. The company has seen more than 60 percent resident participation in online payments at select properties, and a portfolio-wide average of 50 percent conversion from lead to completed online application.
Based on these client success stories, Property Solutions has been named a Cloud Computing Business Value (CCBV) Award winner.
"Considering all the complex, operational components that corporate and site-level multifamily professionals must execute and orchestrate minute-to-minute, unified single-system technology is crucial to delivering the efficiency, ease of use, and real-time information they need to achieve results and stay competitive," said Property Solutions CEO Dave Bateman. "Entrata provides that all-in-one platform - for everything from websites to online leasing to resident management - and we're thrilled to be recognized by THINKstrategies for the measurable benefits and improvements our clients have seen."
"Multi-housing communities are increasingly recognizing that they can leverage Cloud-based solutions to better manage their operations and serve their residents," stated Jeffrey M. Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, the strategic consulting firm which conceived and administers the Cloud Computing Showplace. "The Property Solutions Cloud-based PaaS capabilities give property managers a strategic source to perform many of their day-to-day tasks in a centralized manner."
