LEHI, UTAH - Entrata announces its commanding lead in the provision of software tools to the Student Housing Business list of Top 25 Managers. With 11 companies on the list using Entrata Student , the industry's first property management software built uniquely for the student housing market now serves more companies on the list than any other provider.
Every aspect of Entrata Student was built with students in mind based on feedback and input from those laboring on the front lines of turn every school year, said Chase Harrington, chief operating officer, Entrata. Were gaining market share because we have an innovative, agile solution designed specifically to meet the needs of student operators.
Entrata Student includes roommate matching, bulk unit assignment and digital make ready board functionality that is backed by a full suite of online tools for accounting, leasing, payments, portals, marketing and resident management, all on one platform.

The whole Entrata team has been there every step of the way as we implement new modules and adapt the platform to our specific operational and reporting needs.
