TransUnion's goal is to make tenant screening accessible to landlords and property managers of all sizes as well as respecting the privacy of consumer applicants
Boston, MA (PRWEB) July 20, 2009
Premiere online property management software company Buildium, LLC today announced an agreement with TransUnion, one of the country's three major credit-reporting companies, to provide landlords and property managers with access to the same tenant screening technology used by the largest property management groups.
"Our partnership with TransUnion gives landlords and property managers access to one of the industry's most comprehensive criminal and credit background databases," says Michael Monteiro, partner and co-founder of Buildium, LLC. "Through a secure easy-to-follow process, landlords can get the information they need to make an informed decision and prospective tenants can have peace of mind that their information is protected."
Integrated into Buildium's user-friendly online property management software, this new tenant screening feature allows customers to run background checks on prospective tenants directly from the Buildium program. Once an applicant's identity is verified by TransUnion through a self-initiated, secure online process, results and recommendations are then relayed in real-time to the landlord through Buildium's interface.
"TransUnion's goal is to make tenant screening accessible to landlords and property managers of all sizes as well as respecting the privacy of consumer applicants," says Kristen Hillier, senior manager with TransUnion Rental Screening Solutions. "With Buildium's technology and integrated platform, we are bringing actionable data to the rental community at a time when it is most needed due to the dynamic nature of the economy."
Buildium, LLC is an innovative property management software company that provides simple and affordable online solutions to professional property management companies and self-managed condos and HOAs alike. Founded in 2003, today Buildium's online property management tools are used to manage more than 150,000 commercial and residential units worldwide.
