To: <sm@chcdigital.com>


Hello again, UKAA members. The end of summer is in sight and whatever the state of your holiday plans, your residents may be eagerly awaiting status updates from your building managers, maintenance team, or concierge.  

Communicating with your residents, especially when it comes to maintenance, is paramount to the success of your BTR scheme. Residents often cite maintenance updates, community issues, and amenities as some of the top reasons to move out.  

The good news is that you don’t need to wade through endless solutions to your communication pain points: your Yardi or MRI Software offers native solutions to automate some of the most critical resident touchpoints.  

Make life easier for your residents and your managers by fully utilising the technology you already pay for to do some of the tedious tasks for you. Ready to get started? We’re ready to help.

The REdirect Team 

Introducing this week's UKAA News Buzz sponsor:
Simplify and Automate your Communication for a Better Resident Experience 

Transparency and clear communication are important to your residents. You can put your ERP systems to work to streamline and automate communication for maintenance, building updates, and even amenities management. You can get some of these features simply by implementing additional modules. Are you maximising your technology capabilities?
