NEW ORLEANS, LA - 365 Connect, a leading provider of award-winning digital marketing, leasing, and resident service platforms for the multifamily housing industry, announced today that the company has received a Summit Marketing Effectiveness Award for its industry-first ADA-Certified platform. This prestigious, international award recognizes 365 Connect’s dedication to digital inclusion across the rental housing industry and beyond.
The Summit International Awards (SIA) is dedicated to furthering excellence in the marketing communications industry. It administers three distinguished advertising and marketing award competitions throughout the year with the goal of raising the awareness of companies and individuals, who have the creative and marketing talent to go beyond the ordinary. Throughout its 26-year history, the Summit International Awards has established its Summit Marketing Effectiveness Award as a premier arbiter of creative and communication excellence. Using stringent evaluation criteria and blind judging processes, its competitions reward only those firms whose work exemplifies the best in its class.
365 Connect was recognized for its dedicated efforts in certifying its entire platform as digitally compliant with the federally-recognized Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) at 2.1 Level AA. The certification covers the entire 365 Connect Platform, including property websites, lead forms, tour requests, rental applications, portals, and payments. 365 Connect received third-party certification from Online ADA, a member of the International Association of Accessibility Professionals and provider of independent WCAG compliance audits.
“Marrying creativity and effectiveness can be a difficult task, so winning a Summit Marketing Effectiveness Award is a significant achievement,” said Jocelyn Luciano, Principle Managing Director for the Summit International Awards. “The combination of experienced judges, tough criteria, and strict bylaws limiting winners, ensures that only deserving entries receive recognition.”
365 Connect Founder and CEO Kerry W. Kirby stated, “365 Connect is truly honored to receive this highly acclaimed award. Our focus is to make services accessible to everyone, including individuals with disabilities. As physical buildings become more digitally dependent on their websites to interact with prospective and existing customers, we must close the digital divide.” He added, “We are excited to have our efforts acknowledged on an international level, as this award emphasizes our team’s unwavering commitment to deliver compliant solutions to the widest possible audience online.”
With an array of coveted technology awards, 365 Connect continues to revolutionize the multifamily housing industry with a dynamic platform built on modern-cloud architecture and flexible infrastructure. The platform consumes, integrates, and displays data, in order to streamline operations without sacrificing a seamless user experience.
