See why customers prefer Zego Utility

“A big differentiator between Zego and their competitors is the guidance Zego provides about utility billing regulations. Utility regulations are very confusing and vary by property location. Zego takes the time to explain it all to us and also provides guidance on how to maximize recoupment rates for each property. We would not receive this level of guidance from other companies, so it was a big part of the decision to go with Zego.”

“Dealing with utilities, in particular, has been a drastic improvement because we now have full insight into that data. Recovering those costs from residents is more streamlined and has even led to more on-time payments because residents pay rent and utilities at the same time.”
