NEW ORLEANS, LA - 365 Connect, a leading provider of award-winning marketing, leasing, and resident technology platforms for the multifamily housing industry, announced that the company has launched an integration with ride sharing platform Uber. The integration is the first of its kind in the multifamily housing industry, enabling apartment communities to drive prospects directly from their website to their doorstep.
Uber has been a pioneer within the sharing economy with a peer-to-peer ridesharing and transportation network that operates in 633 cities worldwide. The popularity of their platform has been spearheaded by Millennials and Gen-Z — two generations who grew up intuitively using the Internet as an avenue for just about anything from shopping to socialization. Today, Uber averages over 15 million rides per day.
“The digital landscape is changing at a rapid pace, which is driven by the demand of the modern consumer," stated Kerry W. Kirby, CEO of 365 Connect. "The shifting demographic of renters is causing industry-wide transformations including the need for more digital services to reach prospects and serve residents. We remain laser-focused on integrating multiple communication and transactional systems with our platform to accommodate the next generation of renters.”
The integration with Uber allows one-click ride bookings directly from the community’s website. The application is programed to the property’s address and automatically maps the route to the respective apartment community, eliminating any data input from the end-user. The Ride with Uber feature creates a natural extension of the mobile experience, which is designed to drive prospects directly to your door.
With an array of highly coveted technology awards, 365 Connect continues to revolutionize the multifamily housing industry with a dynamic platform built on modern-cloud architecture and flexible infrastructure. The platform consumes, integrates, and displays data to streamline operations without sacrificing a seamless user experience. Today, many of the nation’s most respected multifamily housing operators utilize 365 Connect to unify processes and create efficient workflows.
“As Gen-Z continues to become the most powerful renter demographic we have ever seen, it is critical to continually innovate next generation technologies that unify solutions and eliminate barriers to productive workflows. We continue to think outside the box and evolve our platform into one cohesive digital ecosystem, integrated with social, mobile, and local search – from focused content to apps being used daily such as Uber,” Kirby added.
