More sophisticated than old school resident engagement platforms

  • One app to manage the entire living experience

    Engage provides residents with a single app to manage every aspect of their living experience. With the convenience of their smartphone, residents can pay rent and utilities on the go, submit and track work orders, communicate with their staff and their community, and even access resident-exclusive discounts at local businesses.

  • Mobile-first user experience and design

    Most resident portals are designed to be used on a desktop. Engage lets you reach residents where they really are: on their smartphone. Engage has a best-in-class design and a highly intuitive user experience, making it an app residents will use over and over.

  • Native payments functionality

    Other engagement apps offer clunky payment integrations. But Engage equips you with native payment functionality that is fully embedded within the app. Residents make payments with ease, while balances are quickly and accurately reflected in your accounting software

How it works

1. Residents engage

Residents download the app and have an easier way to pay rent, submit maintenance requests, communicate with staff, track packages, register visitors, and more.

2. Requests are routed to community managers

Community managers utilize the admin portal to respond to resident requests, schedule group communications, and streamline processes.

3. We integrate

Seamless integration of key data with your property management software ensures updated information and saves time.

4. Communities thrive

Better workflow and communication increases resident engagement and satisfaction, makes community staff more productive, and bolsters property NOI

Simplifies life in any community

We simplify the resident engagement process for all portfolio types, including traditional Multifamily, Student Housing, Corporate Housing, and Single Family.

The bells and whistles that simplify property operations

  • Custom branded app

    Engage is completely flexible so you can customize it to your property’s brand, creating a seamless resident experience.

  • 100% paperless rent & utility payments

    With a secure mobile payment option for rent and utilities, you’ll boost online rent payment utilization and resident satisfaction.

  • Package management

    Manage your community’s packages in fewer steps. When you check-in packages using the Engage Admin App, residents receive notifications to pick them up. With our Luxer One integration, residents can also access Luxer One smart lockers and view their package delivery histories directly within the Zego Engage app.

  • Pet, vehicle and visitor registration

    Stay on top of who is coming and going. A registration system lets residents request approval for visitors, pets, or vehicles.

  • Amenity reservation management

    Residents can reserve time at the community amenities they love most. Engage lets them view when on-site amenities are available and book a time that works for their schedule.

  • Integrated work orders

    When residents submit work orders from their app, staff can easily access and update it via the Engage Admin App or your property management software. With real-time data integration, there’s no need to input data across multiple platforms.

  • Digital marketplace services

    Showcase exclusive resident discounts to local services like house cleaning, dog walkers, dry cleaning, etc. With these partnerships you can effortlessly grow revenue and drive resident engagement.

Flexible communication platform

Communicating with an entire community doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Interact with residents using templates or custom messages, and track responses in one place.

  • Customized resident messaging

    Residents select if they want email, SMS or in-app notifications so your messages are always received in their preferred medium.

  • Event-triggered group messaging

    Create templates and schedule standard triggered messages such as lease renewal notifications so you aren’t constantly recreating the wheel.

  • Community feeds

    Easily spread the word about community events and announcements. Residents can RSVP, giving you accurate headcounts and encouraging attendance.

  • “After a successful pilot...it’s a no-brainer to move forward with a portfolio-wide deployment. We consider it low hanging fruit to upgrade and evolve our properties. Plus, Zego’s team has been great to work with.”
