GENERAL

2016
Year In Review

Bill Evick, Founder & CEO
18 January 2017

First off, I want to personally thank all of our clients that have partnered with us over the last five years. Aptexx has experienced exceptional growth since we processed our first rent payment in March of 2012. We couldn’t have done it without you!

In less than 5 years, Aptexx is now processing over $2 Billion in rent payments annually. In addition, we’ve introduced some very disruptive technology to the property management industry. Aptexx isn’t just a payments company anymore…we’re now adding value to every stage of the Resident Lifecycle and doing it with the mobile resident in mind. From 2-way messaging, to micro-surveys ,to service requests… Aptexx has transformed itself into one of the leading Software-as-a-Service (Saas) providers in the property management industry.

Now let’s take a look back at some of our key accomplishments in 2016…


Our new Executive Dashboard makes resident lifecycle
management

Aptexx 2.0

We completely rewrote our entire offering using the most advanced technology available. This wasn’t an easy decision to make, but we felt it was necessary to support our rapid growth and prepare us for future success.

Aptexx Conversations™ was our most disruptive feature of 2016.

Our move to Aptexx 2.0 is what allowed us to build a truly disruptive, conversational messaging into Resident Anywhere™ . It’s a perfect example of what you can expect from us in 2017.
