SightPlan, a leader in multifamily software solutions, has released Marketplace–a new feature that enables on-site teams to offer curated deals and discounts by partnering with local and national businesses, adding value to the resident experience. Local businesses can be hand-selected by on-site teams to promote neighborhood hot-spots through SightPlan’s integration with Yelp.
Today’s residents are looking for authentic ways to engage with their communities; Marketplace can help distinguish one community from the next. By encouraging residents to shop locally, the impact of Marketplace extends to surrounding neighborhoods.
The Yelp integration into Marketplace enables on-site teams to curate the resident experience to promote mixed-use retailers and those that align with community values. Without leaving their Resident App and Portal, residents can leverage Marketplace to discover their new favorite brunch spot or the closest dry cleaners.
Communities can strategically add value to their resident experience by promoting exclusive discounts or deals with popular service providers or nation-wide chains. These partnerships open opportunities for organizations to create additional revenue streams. From an oil change to food-service delivery boxes, the partnership opportunities are endless.
“With Marketplace, on-site teams are able to better add value to the resident experience. With residents demanding better service, faster, this is an unexpected perk that immediately adds value to their community while simultaneously promoting local businesses,” said Joseph Westlake, President of SightPlan.
