365 Connect Expands Reach into Student Housing with Marketing Syndication Platform Integration to uCribs

NEW ORLEANS, LA - 365 Connect, a leading provider of award-winning marketing, leasing, and resident technology platforms for the multifamily housing industry, announced today the integration of its Marketing Syndication Platform with uCribs, the largest search site dedicated to apartments near universities. In teaming up with uCribs, 365 Connect will distribute rental listings to uCribs’ nationwide rental housing platform.

The 365 Connect’s Marketing Syndication Platform emphasizes the shift from obsolete marketing strategies towards more economical and effective marketing technology that can be successfully utilized in the apartment industry. Research has repeatedly demonstrated that today’s renters want more efficient, user-friendly sites like uCribs when seeking an apartment home in a focused location. Through the distribution of 365 Connect’s client property listings across uCribs’ unique apartment search engine, this powerful alliance delivers high market penetration.

uCribs enables millennial renters to search for rentals based on the location of their university instead of an arbitrary location. With students and young renters primarily in mind, uCribs curates its own property listings and works directly with landlords and selected live data partners to provide a one-stop-shop for young renters and their parents, who are seeking to understand the rental market around their chosen college. uCribs is committed to measuring and sharing rental trends across college markets within the United States to its growing audience of renters and potential landlords.

uCribs Vice President of Strategic Partnerships, Colin Kish, explained, “As we continue to scale our platform across the nation, it is critical that we deliver apartments that are currently available for lease to our site users. 365 Connect’s award-winning technology directly delivers trusted source listings with real-time pricing and availability to uCribs. This integration will help uCribs succeed in its goal of creating an exceptional user experience by providing accurate data to our site users searching for rental listings.”

Founder and CEO of 365 Connect, Kerry W. Kirby, responded, “We are excited to extend our Marketing Syndication Network to include uCribs. uCribs has created a unique marketplace for millennial renters that enables them to easily search and discover real-time inventory of apartments. uCribs’ focus on delivering leading-edge technology and mobile applications aligns perfectly with 365 Connect’s responsive platform, which allows renters on-the-go to find apartments, access neighborhood details, and share listings. This integration will allow us to dramatically increase the number of leads, eliminate redundant marketing efforts, and reduce operating expenses for our clients.”

The 365 Connect Technology Platform is highly recognized by its peers for its unique ability to market communities across the Internet on high traffic sites, automate social media postings, and deliver desktop and mobile platforms for prospects to transact business.
