How Technology Positively Impacts the Asset Manager and Operator Relationship
The relationship and communication between operators and asset managers is vastly improving thanks to technology solutions that offer visibility and transparency at the property level. Operators are constantly “drinking from a fire hose", and work hard to avoid operating in a reactive manner. While the asset managers are focused on ways to push NOI and mitigate risk. Technology is providing solutions for both; allowing the operators and asset managers to work smarter and offering more opportunity to focus on what really matters. The ability to provide real-time reporting and analytics allows for more streamlined and meaningful communication.
Solving the Connectivity Issue
High-speed internet access is both an important amenity and a vital component of rental properties’ on-site IoT solutions. The COVID-19 pandemic, however, has made connectivity more critical than ever. As apartments become de facto workplaces, multifamily operators must deliver fast, reliable connections that support residents’ evolving needs. But the market is filled with a confusing array of technologies, regional providers, and delivery models that make it difficult to deliver the best solution for business and resident needs.
