Year after year, the technological world continues to achieve impressive milestones.

Kirby stated, “The Next Generation Tech Trends to Watch in the New Year webcast will deliver 60-minutes of captivating, investigatory discussion concerning the technological trends that are affecting the way multifamily communities market, and engage with the next generation of renters. Highlights include investigating the phenomenon of mobile technology, discussing the importance of data dashboards, exploring the benefits of marketing automation, and delving into the trend that is virtual and augmented reality.“

PowerHour's Ernest F. Oriente, a property management industry professional since 1988 and the author of SmartMatch Alliances, will join Kirby on the webcast. Oriente and Kirby have presented over 90 webcasts together, covering an array of topics from strategies on maintaining optimum performance of multifamily communities to the latest technology trends. With a combined experience of almost 50 years in the multifamily housing industry, Oriente and Kirby deliver comprehensive, educational, and leading-edge programming.

“With the rapid development of technology, it is imperative for the multifamily industry to keep up with the latest trends, which can aid us in any task whether it's managing leases, giving tours, or revamping amenities. We must deliver a consistent, tech-friendly experience throughout every step of the housing process while providing cohesive solutions that focus on the entire resident lifecycle,“ explained Kirby. “As we continue to look at innovative methods to increase lead flow, simplify onboarding practices, and engage residents, it is crucial that multifamily housing operators realign their strategies to accommodate the new generation of renters.
