ATLANTA, GA - RentBureau, the rental data-based consumer reporting agency and data solutions company serving multiple industries, today announced the launch of UtilityView, a first-of-its-kind reporting product providing energy companies with critical multifamily housing data to maximize the returns on their bids.
UtilityView provides utility companies a comprehensive view of profit potential of individual apartment communities or property management companies overseeing multiple properties. UtilityView reports address occupancy rate, resident risk, payment behavior, apartment turnover and demographics - key markers that utility companies can use to decide which communities are best to target for new business. Additionally, utility companies can use this data to support the risk basis of their pricing.
"Energy marketers are increasing their focus on the multifamily housing industry in an effort to increase revenue. Until now, their bid preparation was partially a guessing game because there was no readily available data to help them determine the long-term opportunity for new customers within an apartment community," said Eric Hartz, RentBureau president and CEO. "UtilityView presents an innovative solution by giving utility companies a valuable snapshot of apartment communities and their potential profitability. Our rich multifamily industry data made this product a natural step for us into the utility industry."
Atlanta-based Gas South, Georgia's fastest-growing natural gas marketer, partnered with RentBureau to test the UtilityView beta. Gas South has been utilizing UtilityView for 2 months and has elected to purchase the reporting tool now that it has launched publicly.
"UtilityView provides information that is important to us as marketers," said Kevin Greiner, CEO of Gas South. "It provides valuable data about the potential value of apartment communities we want to approach, so we are able to minimize our risk while also expanding the number of communities we are able to serve."
