“Since we started using the App, we have seen better responses to and stronger attendance at our all of our events, including pizza days and pool tournaments,” says Derek Johnson, Property Manager at Helix Starkville. “The app allows us to send quick, digital messages to our residents, which saves time and hours for our management team who would otherwise be bogged down by smaller tasks like passing out flyers.”

Homestead U, the management team behind Helix Starkville, chose Communiqué to provide an improved, streamlined communication service to its nationwide portfolio of apartment communities. Through the Helix Starkville App or the Communiqué desktop interface, Helix Starkville’s staff members can send important messages to residents via texts, emails or push notifications. This three-pronged approach to communication ensures each resident stays updated and informed with their community’s news and events.


The Helix Starkville App, available on both iOS and Android devices, is one of several branded mobile Apps Communiqué has developed for property management companies nationwide. The smartphone App features a custom-designed interface complete with Helix Starkville’s photo and brand. Residents can view community messages, events and news, as well as pay rent or request maintenance orders directly from their mobile devices. The App is maintained and supported by the Communiqué team.


Marty Hollingsworth, CEO of Communiqué, said he is proud to partner with Homestead U to provide the staff and students of Helix Starkville with state-of-the-art communication services. “Homestead U manages dozens of student housing communities,” Hollingsworth said, “We are excited to offer our App and its communication services portfolio-wide to Homestead U.”
