Mobile usage continues to trend upward at unprecedented rates. As shown in the infographic, "Trends of Smartphones in 2013," there are currently 137 million people using smartphones today and that number continues to grow. So what does this mean for property owners and managers? It means that your tenants are spending more time on these devices so in order to connect with them your properties need to have a presence on these mobile platforms. MRI Software offers several solutions designed specifically for the mobile space. Workspeed, a property operations solution for commercial sites, offers mobile applications for Androids and iPhones where tenants, engineers and property managers can submit, track and complete service requests directly on their smartphone. VaultWare, a front-end marketing solution for residential portfolios, has a Leasing Tablet offering designed specifically for tablets as well as mobile websites. Internet listing services like apartmentfinder.com and rent.com have mobile applications for tenants that are searching for that next property. These are all examples of ways that mobile is playing a part in every stage of the tenant lifecycle. Property management software companies like MRI are recognizing the importance of participating in the trend and providing enhanced interaction between clients and tenants via mobile platforms.
