It can help you to understand when to expect guests for staffing purposes, knowing your peak day and time for tours. It can also provide customer demographics for future marketing efforts. Additionally, using our ID scanning software has been proven to help improve move-in rates.

Improving Tour & Leasing Safety

We’re committed to helping the multi-family housing industry improve its touring safety. In the past, the touring process would look something like this: Ask guests for ID, glance at the ID, and place it on the desk or in the office as you take off to tour the guest, assuming they provided their real ID. The issue with this is that you could be putting your employees and tenants’ safety at risk, not knowing if they really are who their ID says. Plus, if you find that it was a fake ID later, you’ve already wasted the time touring the guest. With ID scanning, you can ask for their ID, scan it in real-time, and instantly verify if their ID passes or fails. This allows you to only provide tours for guests that provide a valid ID, saving you time, and improving  safety. In 2019 alone, our verification system intercepted 11,000 fake IDs Rental fraud is a more prevalent issue than some even realize, and having the appropriate software to combat it is key.
