Assurant, Inc. (New York), a global provider of risk management solutions has entered into a partnership to integrate its renters insurance with Entrata (Lehi, Utah) property management software giving users of Entrata access to Assurant’s products and services as of May 2019.
Through its single-login, open-access Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) system, Entrata provides a suite of management, marketing and leasing solutions, as well as paperless program, training, implementation, creative, and integration services. Since launching in 2003, Entrata reports that it has processed over 45 million rent transactions.
“Entrata is a key player in the property management software space and we’re excited that Assurant will now be part of its dynamic toolbox of offerings for property managers and their residents,” comments Steve Hein, senior VP, Multifamily Housing, Assurant. “This new partnership with Entrata supports our continued effort to automate and integrate with clients, and we look forward to making it easier for property managers to both run and protect their businesses.”
Assurant’s risk mitigation solutions will fully integrate with Entrata providing property managers with the ability to automatically track tenants’ coverage, according to a statement from Assurant. That will reduce their reliance on a labor-intensive process of property staff manually entering insurance information for each tenant to track compliance with the lease. This simplified process enables a higher level of compliance, eliminating gaps in coverage and reducing overall risk, the Assurant statement says.
Best Options for Protecting Users’ Businesses
“Entrata’s platform is designed to provide customers with advanced, easy-to-use technology, with the flexibility to integrate third-party solutions,” comments Chase Harrington, president and COO, Entrata. “We want to ensure they have the best possible options for protecting their businesses, which is why we’re pleased to partner with Assurant, a well-recognized leader in this space.”
