For property managers and leasing teams, there are always residents, prospects and guest coming and going in your community. When it comes to prospects specifically, it’s a big responsibility on your leasing teams to properly identify – and in a sense initially qualify – these prospects. If done improperly, it can open your community up to:
- Fraudulent documentation – With improvement in, fake IDs technology are often impossible to spot with the naked eye. Property managers and leasing teams shouldn’t be responsible for identifying fake IDs from potential residents, particularly if the ID happens to be from another state or even country.
- Wasted time & resources – On average, 22% of an employee’s time is spent completing repetitive tasks that could be done more efficiently. Manually entering personal information for each resident takes time away from other important functions of a property manager or leasing team’s job.
- Vulnerabilities for your team – Without knowing for sure who’s visiting your community, it’s hard to ensure your team and community are safe and secure.
CheckpointID has a solution built specifically to protect multifamily communities from rental fraud. Our technology quickly scans an individual’s ID and uses that to confirm their identity against global databases. Not only does this ensure that property managers know exactly who’s on-site, but CheckpointID also integrates with popular property management software, making it a one-stop solution. When a property manager scans a guest’s ID, CheckpointID automatically captures:
- Date & time of visit
- Full name
Once a person has been logged in your system – their information remains in your PMS and can be updated when they visit your community in the future. You also have the ability to issue guest cards directly through this integration, streamlining and securing that process.
