Zego™ debuts partnership with LevelCredit, a RentTrack company, aiming to help residents achieve their financial goals
The leader in Resident Experience Management empowers renters to build their credit history with its all-new Zego Pay LevelCredit Reporting service.
SAN DIEGO, CA – APRIL 08, 2021 – Zego™ (Powered by PayLease), the property technology company that helps operators modernize their resident experience and boost retention, and LevelCredit, a leading data furnisher helping consumers report their largest monthly expenses to their credit files, today unveiled a new strategic partnership that will help residents easily build their credit history simply by paying their rent using the Zego Pay platform.
By opting-in to the all-new Zego Pay LevelCredit Reporting program, residents can automatically have their on-time rent payments reported to select credit bureaus by LevelCredit at no additional cost to the resident, helping build their credit history each month. Residents will also have the option of upgrading their LevelCredit membership to include premium reporting features, supported by $1M in Identity Theft and Credit Restoration Insurance. All available via a user-friendly platform for monitoring their credit and other insights into their credit score, with the launch of a new Premium subscription later this year.
“Our focus is on finding new ways to improve upon the resident experience while also unlocking new efficiencies for our customers whenever possible. In my mind this is one of the best examples of delivering on that promise,” said Stephen Baker, Chief Product Officer at Zego. “Considering less than one percent of Americans see their positive rental payment history on their credit report, this program not only helps property managers streamline rent collection, but also empowers residents to reap great additional benefits as a result of living in their community and paying on time each month.”
As part of the partnership with Zego Pay, which enables a frictionless and fully digital rent payment experience, LevelCredit will also provide an optional LookBack service for residents who want to report up to two years of past payments on the same lease for a small one-time fee.
Today’s announcement builds upon the already-robust Zego Pay platform, which debuted two brand-new features last month, Zego Pay Rapid Account Linking and Zego Pay Mobile CheckScan, to further enhance the efficiency of the Zego resident experience.
