LPG Featured in Resite News Article

Liss Property Group needed a technology partner who could help them develop an effective marketing website, provide a powerful customer relations platform, and build and host their email accounts. They wanted their website to automate the leasing process with online guest cards and lease applications, while providing specific resident service functionalities such as online rent payment and maintenance requests. To accomplish this, the rapidly growing east coast management company sought a partner that is keenly focused on the needs of the apartment industry and a company that could literally be a ‘one-stop shop’ for all their technology needs.

By integrating LeadtoLease and ResidentHub with a custom corporate website design (www.LissPropertyGroup.com), Liss employees can focus on their core mission – managing properties – with the knowledge that they have a technology partner who can meet their growing needs. In just the first month of using the ResiteIT suite of products, Liss properties have experienced great results in terms of both resident participation and traffic generation.

In our first month after launch, we have had an increase in office productivity, resident satisfaction, and the number of leases signed.

With LeadToLease, my managers have been able to track the prospect to applicant to resident process from start to finish. Prospective Residents have been able to inquire about apartments directly from the website. In addition, prospective residents can apply online directly from our website using a credit card which automates the application process, especially for out of state residents. We have been able to follow up all the applicants that have viewed an apartments and have turned many more leads into leases and this is just the first month.

Liss Property Group’s current residents have been extremely excited about the use of our website to pay rent online, submit service requests, get company phone numbers, submit surveys, read community monthly newsletters, and even build up points to earn resident rewards to shop online. Residents are able to log into a personal resident portal to pay by electronic check or by credit card for rent, late fees, and even utilities. One of the main concerns of our residents were that many of them did not have a computer to access the new conveniences of our company. With the resident portal, my managers can assist residents by accepting payments over the phone and manually posting their transactions for them.

It has been a win-win situation for our company and our residents, and this is just the beginning. ResiteIT has streamlined my company’s operations, requiring less time on collections and application processing , and spending more time concentrating on proactively leasing apartments. We look forward to the future with ResiteIT and their integration of products with our software!
