News : RealPage and Zillow Form New Partnership
Carrolltown, Texas, Jul 21, 2014 -- RealPage, Inc. (NASDAQ: RP ), a provider of on-demand property management software, announce a partnership with the real estate information marketplace, Zillow, Inc. (NASDAQ: Z ). As part of the partnership, RealPage’s rental site, MyNewPlace , will join the Zillow(R) Rental Network. Under the agreement, multifamily rental professionals who market their listings on Zillow will have the option to have their listings appear on MyNewPlace.
The partnership also enables Zillow to offer RealPage’s near real-time pricing and availability information for multifamily listings that use RealPage products and services. Zillow will also offer to all multifamily marketers, using their services, the RealPage Live Agent Service, which leverages the RealPage Contact Center solution, a call center for the rental housing industry.
Steve Winn, CEO of RealPage, commented, "We are very pleased to be partnering with Zillow as this relationship will benefit both RealPage and Zillow users alike. We will continue to market the MyNewPlace Premium service, which complements the Zillow listings and gives owners and managers even more contacts. By adding pricing, unit availability and, most importantly, a live agent on the other end of each phone and email contact, we are confident that Zillow users will realize increased lead-to-lease conversion rates."
"We are very excited to be partnering with RealPage," said Greg Schwartz, Zillow chief revenue officer. "Having Zillow’s inventory of multifamily listings marketed on MyNewPlace broadens the exposure of those properties and we are very pleased to begin offering RealPage’s exclusive features. Both Live Agent Service and real-time pricing and availability offerings add a whole new level of value to the rentals industry and give rental shoppers a more accurate rental shopping experience."
