NEW ORLEANS, LA – 365 Connect, the New Orleans based technology platform provider to the multifamily industry, announced today that it has launched its live data feed integration with Rent Jungle (www.RentJungle.com). Employing its latest product, the 24-7 Leasing Center, the integration automatically brings all of the apartment community marketing data for 365 Connect's apartment clients to Rent Jungle via the Center's syndication platform.
24-7 Leasing Center is a joint product of 365 Connect and MultifamilyBiz.com, which harnesses and syndicates information across the Internet through multiple data feeds from the 365 Connect Network of Online Leasing Centers. The powerful MultifamilyBiz.com platform serves as the data hub and entrance point for the syndicated feeds.
Going beyond traditional hosted websites, the 365 Connect platforms gather and sort data into bundles and then mass syndicate the most relevant data that apartment shoppers are seeking (such as photos, floor plans and pricing) across the Internet. The syndication platform saves time and money for multifamily property owners through the elimination of redundant marketing efforts which normally demand an extraordinary amount of management staff time.
In today's ever expanding Internet marketplace, in which 90% of all housing searches start on the Internet, it is vital that multifamily owners and operators market their communities online efficiently and inexpensively. 365 Connect strives to place each of its clients' apartment communities in as many online destinations as possible with automatic, real-time updates in a seamless process that property managers never have to touch, see or update. By pushing the leasing information for 365 Connect platform communities across high traffic sites such as Rent Jungle, 365 Connect clients are ensured that their most needed property information is reaching online prospects across the breadth of the Internet.
Rent Jungle was founded in 2009 by Rick Ferris and Jon Pastor, Their vision was to fill a void in the online real estate market by offering a simple, easy-to-use directory and a one-stop-shop destination for renters.
The Rent Jungle search engine was launched in January, 2010, and has quickly become one of the premier rental listing sites on the Web. The site works much like other search engines in that it scours the Internet to amass apartment listings from a variety of listing sites; however, unlike other search engines, Rent Jungle specializes in apartments. Users can search, sort and bookmark individual listings as well as view them in an innovative user-friendly map.
The key to Rent Jungle is its innovative spidering and mapping technology. Geng Wang, Chief Marketing Officer at Rent Jungle, explains "Not only does it scour the web and aggregate pages to find every listing, but it also presents those findings in an interactive map that makes apartment hunting so easy, a monkey could do it. You get more listings than any other online site, and an instant visual detailing the apartment's location and local services and attractions such as schools, parks, shopping, and ultra hip watering holes."
365 Connect and MultifamilyBiz.com are proud to align their 24-7 Leasing Center syndication platform with Rent Jungle to create an integration that enhances their mission of driving quality traffic to all of the 365 Connect Online Leasing Centers.
