“We live in an interconnected world, one that is reliant upon the Internet to deliver resources through multiple channels,” Kirby explained. “As we have become digitally dependent on web services to interact and transact with both prospective and existing customers, we are seeing amenities move toward automation, leasing experiences become humanless, and an unprecedented momentum for online information and services to be accessible and safe for everyone.”
