ET on MultifamilyBiz.com, the largest media resource in the multifamily housing industry.

Unleashing Innovation: Emerging Tech Trends That Will Optimize Operations in The Year Ahead will deliver a comprehensive overview of the state of the economic market and its effect on businesses. The webcast will delve into how businesses are struggling with skill shortages and the impact it is having on backfilling open jobs that were created by high turnover. The segment also explores the latest trends in technology automation to supplement staff, increase retention rates, and better serve customers.

"In order to succeed in the current marketplace, property managers need to implement an automated service approach to strengthen the capabilities of their workforce," Kirby explained. "Change has never moved faster, but along with that change comes the need to revise our strategies and transform outdated processes to ensure continuity of services."

Joining Kirby is property management expert, Ernest F. Oriente of PowerHour, an industry professional, and the author of SmartMatch Alliances. Oriente and Kirby have presented over 150 webcasts together, reaching over one-million listeners from around the world, and broadcasting across an array of podcast channels, such as Spotify, iHeart Radio, and Pandora.

Oriente responded, "Kerry has his finger on the pulse of the latest innovations in the multifamily housing arena, and I am excited to join him in this discussion on the latest technology trends entering the market that will help our industry transform its operations. As with all the material we produce, we strive to deliver relevant, straightforward information to our audience, so they can better prepare for the next wave of developments taking place."

"The world has changed dramatically, and its effects are felt across every business and industry imaginable," Kirby concluded. "Onsite teams are spread thin, and finding qualified staff is even more of a challenge in today’s market. Given the immense size of the modern-day rental market, it is crucial that multifamily housing operators leverage the power of automation to not only better serve their renters, but also supplement their workforce."
