Asset Campus Housing (“ACH”) is set to launch the first ever student housing iPhone application in January of 2011. Today, smartphones are the standard device that consumers are using in order to stay in communication with friends, family, classes and now their living facilities thanks to the ACH app.
Prospective residents will be able to download the app for free from the iTunes stores and receive resourceful information about ACH and each of their student housing properties located nationwide. ACH designed the application to make the overall leasing experience more convenient for their clientele by including photographs of each property, floor plans, scheduled rates and contact information all on a single app. The ACH application will also provide prospective residents with an interactive map that directs viewers from their current location to the property’s exact location.
The company extends their motto of “providing the ultimate living experience” by tailoring the application to each resident being able to select their property under the app’s ACH portfolio page and save it on their iPhone as “My Property.” The “My Property” page keeps each resident informed of the latest news and social activities that pertain to their property by sending a direct alert to the user’s iPhone. This page also alleviates any inconvenience for residents needing to come to the front desk to make payments or submit maintenance requests since they will be able to do so from virtually anywhere.
The ACH iPhone application is yet another initiative for the company to remain the most innovative leader in today’s student housing industry. During 2010, ACH has rolled out a variety of tech-savvy programs including a new SMS text messaging system that has revolutionized the way the company communicates with student residents and prospects, as well as an online survey system that analyzes college students’ biggest demands for off-campus housing.
ACH is enthusiastically responding to Generation Y’s demand for quick and easy communication by releasing the new iPhone application. The company expects to see a tremendous growth in traffic amongst prospective residents and an increase in resident retention with the unveiling of the ACH iPhone app.
