Our story started over a few cold beers... and the rest is history.
In 2003, Ty Kalklosch and Yann Phung were having a round of beers when the topic of paying rent came up. For two busy professionals like themselves, writing a rent check and dropping it off to their property manager was too time-consuming. They wanted better, more convenient rent payment options that were mutually beneficial to community managers and their residents. With that, PayLease was born. And we started to grow - really, really fast.
Between years of triple-digit growth, and an overwhelming demand from our clients to tackle challenges outside of payments, we began to expand our platform. Today, we offer a comprehensive property management automation platform that encompasses payments, utility management, and resident engagement. We are recognized in the industry for helping our clients to scale resources, build trust, and make decisions with portfolio-wide visibility.
Since we’ve branched out far beyond payments, in 2020, we renamed and fully rebranded ourselves to be more inclusive of our offerings. Now, we are proudly Zego, a Global Payments company. And, we’re still evolving.
By combining forces with Global Payments, a leading worldwide provider of payment technology and software solutions, we’re able to pair our 20 years of residential real estate industry expertise and experience with the power and stability of a Fortune 500 company. This allows us to provide innovative software that enables automated property management and best-in-class resident experiences.
While we have a different name and a few more tricks up our sleeve, our mission has never wavered. We’re entirely focused on helping management companies go above and beyond for their residents, staff, and shareholders. Let us help you go beyond.
