ProPay Launches Mobile Rent Payments Service
Release date: 8/28/2013
Ground-breaking payment service simplifies rent payments for the property management industry
LEHI, Utah, and COLUMBUS, Ga., Aug. 28, 2013 — ProPay (www.propay.com), a TSYS company and industry leader in merchant services, payment security, and mobile payments, today announced the launch of a service to provide rent payments via mobile devices for the property management industry. The technology empowers residents to pay rent, communicate with property managers and submit maintenance requests instantly through any smart device without having to login or download a traditional app. Property managers may also implement mobile credit card readers to collect application fees and security deposits with virtually any smartphone or tablet using the ProPay JAK™.
The service is powered by Aptexx, the first mSaaS (mobile Software-as-a-Service) provider that utilizes Responsive Web Design and HTML5 technology to provide mobile rent payments for the property management industry. Aptexx fully leverages ProPay’s Level 1 PCI Compliant tokenization platform (ProtectPay®), and all merchant funds are FDIC-insured.
“ProPay is a mobile payments leader and innovator, and our partnership with Aptexx is one more example of how we provide creative ways to extend the value of payments,” said Greg Pesci, president of ProPay. “Combining ProPay’s data security and payment processing platform with the property management expertise of the Aptexx team, we have created a revolutionary mobile rent payment service.”
“There are almost 50 million Generation Y Millennials (ages 18-34) in the rental market and roughly 80% own smartphones. For property managers to remain competitive, they must adapt to the mobile renter,” said William Evick, chief executive officer at Aptexx. “The majority of the property management industry is using software that was built over a decade ago for PCs and laptops; software that simply doesn’t work well on smartphones. We’ve solved that problem.”
