The power of texting — instant communication anytime, anywhere


The power of texting — instant communication anytime, anywhere

U ndoubtedly, mobile devices have become the go-to for all our communication needs. A study conducted by Pew Research Center showed that 85% of the global population own a mobile phone, 97% send a text at least once a day, and those who’ve received a text open it 98% of the time.

With statistics like that, it’s obvious that establishing a one-on-one texting relationship with residents has become one of the most reliable ways to increase an apartment community’s retention rate as well as a surefire way to keep the community informed and updated. Texting is simple, streamlined, and part of resident’s everyday lives.

With texting, usage and adoption doesn’t appear to be an issue. Instead, the new challenge is now about flexibility and monitoring.

  • Can you send to large groups of people in specific buildings AND single residents, easily?
  • Have your residents opened and read your messages?
  • During emergency situations such as power outages or gas leaks, can you deploy messages that you know are delivered and read fast?
  • Are you able to expedite the process for how messages are sent and received?

These are key considerations as you harness the power of texting more and more with your residents.
