Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
Ocius, a leading provider of resident billing and utility invoice processing services for apartment managers, today announced that it was again recognized by Multi-Housing News and has been awarded their 2013 Technology Choice Award in three categories: Mobile App, Resident Portals, and Invoice Processing & Payment. Ocius was an award recipient last year as well.
Utilities Plus invoice processing allows property managers to simplify the processing, auditing, and paying of all utilities expenses including electric, gas, and water through one consolidated program. Utilities Plus also allows property managers to quickly recover vacant unit charges that occur when residents do not promptly transfer utility service after moving in.
The My Resident Network resident portal and mobile app lets apartment residents setup a secure mobile account and pay their rent directly from their smart phone or tablet. Residents can view their current monthly statement, sign up for auto-pay, enroll in paperless billing, view their utility consumption, and review other account information as well.
"We are obviously overjoyed to be recognized by other members of the multifamily community with these awards. Utilities Plus is a dynamic solution that is not only effective at increasing net operating income (NOI), but now also includes integration into the EPA's Portfolio Manager Benchmarking Tool to decrease energy consumption and expense," said Keith Nelson, Chief Operating Officer of Ocius. "We work very hard to stay out in front of our clients’ changing needs."
