San Francisco-based RentJuice, a provider of online rental relationship management software to real estate professionals, has launched a tool that allows renters to enter personal information once online and then transfer that information into subscribing real estate offices’ leasing-related online forms.
"Landlords and leasing managers that are RentJuice users can link into this global renter identity database to receive and compare applications … online, in one place," according to a company statement about the new Common Application tool.
"Landlords and agents can send a client a consolidated set of online forms for a property in their RentJuice account using a smartphone or tablet, eliminating the need to make a trip to the office. No pen and paper, scanner, fax machine or envelope is needed — applicants can even sign leasing forms online using a mouse or their finger with any touch-screen mobile device," according to the company announcement.
RentJuice’s Common Application is password-protected and is more secure than sending scanned documents by email, the company added.
The Common Application is free for RentJuice subscribers. As part of the rollout, RentJuice is holding a contest that ends June 1 to give away a $500 Amazon gift card to one leasing agent.
The company operates in the Boston, Chicago, Miami and New York City metro areas, and last month launched in San Francisco.
