The Avenue Student Apartments Uses Communiqué




Communiqué is providing a state-of-the-art communication service to The Avenue Apartments, a student living community located in Indianapolis, IN. The Avenue’s property management team can send texts, emails and push notifications directly to a resident’s smartphone via the Preiss Company App, a mobile application developed and supported by Communiqué.


The Preiss Company, the management team behind The Avenue Apartments, chose Communiqué to provide an improved, streamlined communication service to its nationwide portfolio of apartment communities. Through the Preiss Company mobile App or the Communiqué desktop interface, The Avenue 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.


It is a great way for us to easily and quickly communicate with all of our residents on urgent matters, rather than having to hand deliver notices to each door or call every resident,” Karmen Johnson, Property Manager of The Avenue, said. “A lot of our residents don’t check their emails, but they definitely check their phones. That’s why it works so well.


The Preiss Company 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 The Avenue’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.


Karmen said that her team wanted to give residents an opportunity to get involved within their community, and the App–with it’s unified communication service–helps to do that. “Our residents use the app mostly to pay rent, check their balance, or access community rewards,” Karmen said. “It’s a great tool that allows them to feel like they are in the loop, and updated at all times. It’s also really convenient for them to have access to all of our programs in one place, rather than having to search around our website to find information.”


Marty Hollingsworth, CEO of Communiqué, said he is excited to provide a unified communication service to the staff and student residents of The Avenue Apartments. “We are very grateful for the opportunity to provide our unique solution set to this luxurious student living community,” Hollingsworth said. “The App and its services will make it much easier for student residents to access important and essential community information.”
