NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- 365 Connect, the New Orleans based, award-winning online technology platform provider for the multifamily industry, announced today that for a second year in a row, it has received the MHN Technology Choice Awards in three categories - Marketing Portals, Resident Portal and Resident Payment Systems. These highly coveted awards further cements 365 Connect's role as the leader in creating leading edge, web-based technology platforms for the multifamily industry.
The MHN Technology Choice Awards are nominated and voted on by industry leaders across the country. Each year, the awards are presented to recognize the best multifamily technology companies providing innovative solutions to industry needs such as marketing websites, online payment platforms, resident portals and more. Winners are determined by online vote and property managers, management companies and industry leaders are queried to decide which firms stand apart and deserve recognition as outstanding technology providers.
365 Connect topped the list for the second year in a row in all three of the categories for which it was nominated. The awards were for 365 Connect's leading edge Online Leasing Platform, an interactive Internet expansion of a community's leasing team that eliminates redundant marketing efforts through its unique Marketing Syndication Platform; the 365 Resident Services Platform, one of the industry's most unique and robust Resident Services Portals available in the industry today, a proven resident retention tool and lease renewal Platform; and its Resident Payments Platform, a joint channel partner platform plug-in designed to deliver an affordable online payment solution to the multifamily industry. All of the 365 Connect Platforms integrate with property management software as well as social media applications, and are delivered in desktop and mobile versions.
In a written statement, Multi-Housing News Publisher Dan Waldman stated, "Multi-Housing News is proud to present the winners of the 2012 Technology Choice Awards; companies who provide flexible customization, competitive pricing and the most innovative solutions, all backed by superior customer support. The industry users have voted these firms as those that stand out among the rest. As technologies for our industry grow and evolve to meet our constantly changing needs, the playing field becomes more competitive. The companies here are the ones that have been rated highest by our readers. Congratulations to our 2012 winners, for all they do to show the multi-housing industry the many ways technology has a positive impact on our day-to-day as well as long-term business."
365 Connect President and CEO Kerry W. Kirby stated, "365 Connect is proud to have its technology platforms recognized by its peers for making a difference in the market, not only for property management professionals, but for residents living in apartment communities across the country. These awards demonstrate the capability of the 365 Connect Platform to rapidly evolve and grow to meet the changing needs of the multifamily housing industry."
365 Connect recently received the 2012 eWARD from the Louisiana Technology Council in the Coup D' Tech category, which honors a company for its unique cutting edge and innovative technology product or service that is able to distinguish itself from others and help the state economically and as a technology leader. 365 Connect received this prestigious award for its leading edge Locate, Lease and Live Technology Platform it provides to the multifamily housing industry. The 365 Connect Platform stands out with its unique ability to market an apartment community across the Internet on high traffic sites, automate Social Media postings, deliver desktop and mobile platforms for prospects to transact business, and provide residents online services and communication tools to enhance retention rates. As 365 Connect builds all of its proprietary software in-house, never outsourcing a single component, it continues to serve as an economic engine for the state's economy. As an eWARD winner, 365 Connect will now compete for the Governor's Technology Award later this year.
