Pickering & Company Chooses Communiqué For Its Portfolio-Wide Communication Service
Communiqué, the leading provider of enhanced resident communication services, is providing a state-of-the-art communication service, via a branded smartphone App and innovative web interface, to the entire portfolio of Pickering & Company conventional and student housing properties. Pickering & Company’s property management teams at each of their properties can send texts, emails or push notifications directly to a resident’s smartphone via the Pickering & Company Mobile App, a mobile application developed and supported by Communiqué.
“Most of our properties were using email or paper notices as the primary forms of communication to residents,” Tami Burton, Director of Property Management for Pickering & Company, said. “But several residents may not check their email for days on end. The Communiqué App and its communication service guarantees that residents stay informed of community news and events.”
Pickering & Company, based out of Greensboro, NC, manages over 3,000 units throughout the Southeastern region. The company has a reputation for providing outstanding customer service, along with personal attention to each property it manages, which has resulted in long-term relationships with clients. The state-of-the-art smartphone App, powered by Communiqué, will be branded as the Pickering & Company App and launches early Summer 2017.
Burton said that Pickering & Company chose Communiqué due to the ease it allows in communicating with residents, as well as the Communiqué App’s unique ability to be branded as their company’s own. “The App gives Pickering & Company repetitive exposure as a brand,” Burton said. “Plus, the App and its communication service makes communication much faster and effective than sending out emails or paper notices to residents.”
Wink Radford, Vice President of Sales for Communiqué, said that he is thrilled to be able to work with Pickering & Company. “Our state-of-the-art App will put the Pickering & Company brand into the pockets of each of their residents,” Radford said. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for the company to keep residents updated and informed – wherever they are.”
