New Orleans Multifamily Technology Firm Brings Home Three Technology Choice Awards

365 Connect, the New Orleans based online platform for the multifamily industry, was named a 2011 MHN Technology Choice Award Winner in three categories by Multi-Housing News.

Headquartered in New Orleans, 365 Connect was founded in 2003 by a team of multifamily housing professionals with wide-ranging expertise in real estate development, management and technology.  365 Connect provides web-based technology solutions to the multifamily industry, with a focus on resident and management interaction and doing business in the digital world. Today, 365 Connect is the leader in designing and delivering award winning web-based multifamily technology platforms, with an array of products ranging from online leasing centers and interactive resident platforms to, a powerful and robust B2B industry portal.

The MHN Technology Choice Awards are nominated and voted on by industry leaders across the country.  Each year, the awards are presented to recognize the best multifamily technology companies providing innovative solutions to industry needs such as marketing websites, online payment platforms, resident portals and more. Winners are determined by online vote and property managers, management companies and industry leaders are queried to decide which firms stand apart and deserve recognition as outstanding technology providers.

365 Connect topped the list in all three of the categories for which it was nominated receiving awards for: its leading edge Online Leasing Platform,  an interactive Internet expansion of a community’s leasing team which eliminates redundant marketing efforts through its unique Marketing Syndication Platform; the 365 Resident Services Platform, one of the industry’s most unique and robust Resident Services Portals available in the industry today, a proven resident retention tool and lease renewal Platform; and its Resident Payments Platform, a joint channel partner platform plug-in designed to deliver an affordable online payment solution to the multifamily industry. All of the 365 Connect Platforms integrate with property management software as well as social media applications, and are delivered in desktop and mobile versions.

The eight year old company has thrived in New Orleans, despite the relatively low profile and not having taken any outside capital.  365 Connect CEO Kerry Kirby told Silicon Bayou News that all the company’s technology is built in-house and he is proud that the company is located here.
