At WithMe, one of our core values is customer obsession. We routinely survey our clients to not only gather candid feedback about their experience with our amenity solutions, but to gain perspective on the multifamily industry at large.

These are the five amenities participants said their residents utilize most frequently:

  1. Fitness Center
  2. Coffee Bar
  3. Outdoor Amenities

  5. Package Lockers

Our internal usage data corroborates those rankings. In communities with access to PrintWithMe, our resident printer amenity solution, the average unit utilization rate is a staggering 82%

Back in 2020, Lincoln Property Company partnered with PrintWithMe to offer all-inclusive printing services to their residents nationwide. Since then, nearly 34,000 multifamily apartment homes have enjoyed the benefits of their national partnership.

"When looking for a printing partner, Lincoln was searching for an elevated amenity for our residents while also providing cost and time savings for our teams. PrintWithMe checked all of the boxes, providing support seven days a week, auto-shipping supplies, as well as making our residents' privacy a top concern. It has provided convenience for our residents while taking our teams out of the printing business.”

Managing new construction in multifamily is an undertaking that comes with a unique set of opportunities and challenges. 

With hundreds of critical decisions to be made, the value in onboarding and even using certain amenities during construction can be easily overlooked. 

While it may seem daunting to try to select multiple supplier partners early on in a build, the benefits can certainly outweigh the costs. 

Let’s take a look at a few of them:

One of the top amenity trends in new construction is dedicated coworking space

And for good reason. 

Upwork estimates that by 2025, an estimated 32.6 million Americans will be working remotely, equivalent to roughly 22% of the workforce. 

Your future residents are going to need spaces where they can comfortably work.

If you need inspiration, check out this free e-book with advice from seasoned execs and a handy checklist to help you ensure you’ve got all of the essentials covered.

One essential takeaway from the e-book is that thoughtful FF&E and design aesthetics are critical in creating great coworking spaces, but technology is non-negotiable. 

Where is your money best spent? Here are four smart tech investments:

WithMe falls into that category, offering elevated printing and coffee amenities with perks for residents and on-site teams.  

PrintWithMe’s all-inclusive packages make budgeting easy, while outsourced technical support and auto-shipped supplies reduce the burden on property management teams. Residents love having 24/7 access to reliable printing and live support if they ever run into issues. 

SipWithMe also boasts budget-friendly, all-inclusive pricing and outsourced technical support. Residents love being able to order 20+ roast-to-order beverages in the comfort of their own building. 

You’re going to need a printer and a coffee machine.

Why not maximize your ROI, ensure a seamless rollout and alleviate the stress of lease-up by onboarding WithMe amenities during construction? 

Plus, you can advertise that your building will offer free coffee and free printing! And what prospective resident wouldn’t love that?

ZRS Management recently hosted their annual ZRS Education & Discovery Conference (ZED) in Hollywood, Florida. ZED was specifically designed to educate property managers, leasing professionals and the corporate team about the incredible difference technology can make in areas such as leasing, amenities and marketing. 

Dozens of multifamily vendors, including WithMe, showcased tech-enabled amenities, products and software designed to grow business, support property management teams and increase resident satisfaction. 

Here are 3 key takeaways from ZED 2023: 

1. Invest in the technology that's right for you and your property.

We have all been known to think we can cut costs and even do things better on our own, but that isn’t always the case. In many instances, technology can not only help you reduce expenses, it can also make life better. Don’t get so set in your ways that you neglect to consider the positive value of investing in technology. 

How exactly do you go about finding the technology that will give you the greatest return on your investment? 

First and foremost, identify the amenities or the tasks that cause you the most stress, time and expense. 

Once you’ve identified your pain points, start researching! At conferences and trade shows, make time to visit with exhibitors. Ask your colleagues for insight on what’s been working for them. Keep an eye on trade publications for product announcements, reviews and case studies. 

Technology isn’t one-size-fits all. Take time to find the solutions that increase your efficiency, provide the highest ROI and improve your quality of life. 

2. Always provide exceptional service and maintain a high standard of professionalism. 

When selecting vendors and products, stop to evaluate the impact on the overall quality of the service you’re providing. Automation and centralization can certainly maximize efficiency, but they can also end up creating a cold and impersonal experience. At the end of the day, your residents are people, too, and they deserve to feel valued and important. 

3. Use amenities to reduce employee stress and burnout. 

Attracting residents is tough. But right now, attracting and retaining great multifamily employees is arguably even tougher. 

Your team shouldn’t have to sacrifice their sanity to keep residents happy. It’s important to identify amenity solutions that work for you, not against you. 

While showcasing SipWithMe at ZED, the WithMe team received multiple comments from property managers about how helpful it would be to have a fixed cost for their coffee amenity. Budgeting season is just around the corner. Wouldn’t it be nice to have fewer line items to scrutinize and blindly forecast? Tech-enabled amenities can make that possible! 

Tech-enabled amenities can also reduce time-consuming tasks that create stress and major headaches. Dealing with supplies, for example. Your team has better things to do than try to remember to monitor supply levels and make emergency trips to the store when they forget to reorder things on time. Services like PrintWithMe remotely monitor supply levels and ship them right to your door, right when you need them. 

PrintWithMe and SipWithMe may or may not be the right solutions for your property, but the point is that it’s important to implement technology that makes life better for everyone in your community, and that includes your staff. When your team members are happy, they’re more engaged. And when they’re more engaged, you’re more likely to retain them. 

We hope these takeaways are helpful as you formulate future property management and resident acquisition strategies, and we hope to see you at ZED 2024!

Woody Stone, Cushman & Wakefield’s president of U.S. multifamily asset services, recently went on record to discuss the company’s goal to use technology and proptech to improve the team member experience. 

“Today’s staffing challenges, both in finding and retaining staff and in the escalating payroll costs, are pushing us to innovate,” Stone tells Multifamily Executive

One proptech solution being used by several Cushman & Wakefield properties is PrintWithMe, a printer amenity that offers residents an elevated wireless printing experience.

The service has proven to be an ideal fit for Cushman & Wakefield’s culture. In the words of Stone, “We are committed to creating a culture where we ‘Care First and Care Most’ for our clients, residents, and team members. This is what defines us.”

PrintWithMe takes care of Cushman & Wakefield residents by giving them 24/7 access to an amenity they love (take it from the Wall Street Journal), while keeping their personal information protected.

The solution takes care of property management teams by outsourcing all technical support, automatically shipping paper and toner when supplies are running low, and simplifying the budgeting process. Removing these operational burdens has helped reduce staff stress, prevent burnout and allow team members to focus on more important and more valuable tasks. 

WithMe’s mission is to make lives better every day, and we are proud to be helping Custhman & Wakefield keep its promise to Care First and Care Most about its teams and its residents.

Apartmentalize 2023, hosted by The National Apartment Association, is just around the corner. Boasting more than 75 educational sessions and a seemingly endless array of networking opportunities, figuring out the best way to maximize your time can be daunting. But don’t fret. We’ve got you covered with 6 tips to ensure you have a great experience:

1. Come on, get app-y.

Well before you ever leave for Atlanta, familiarize yourself with the Apartmentalize 2023 app, available for iOS and Android.

Before using the app, you’ll need to create a myNAA Planner account using your registration email address and the ID number from your Apartmentalize confirmation.

At the conference, you can use the app’s interactive map to find exhibitors, access session handouts and even take notes.

2. Dress for success and to impress.

Most attendees will be in business casual attire. The days will be long, so be sure you’re comfortable, but also remember you’re representing your organization - and yourself! Take pride in your appearance.

Conference floors and meeting rooms can get chilly. Dress in layers to be sure you’ll always be comfortable.

3. Wear comfortable shoes.

Enough said.

4. Pack your bags.

Be sure you always have these two items with you during the conference:

5. Get social.

NAA does an incredible job populating their social profiles with helpful information. Before heading to the conference, be sure you are following #Apartmentalize on Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter or Instagram. Lean into the conversation on your favorite platform for an insider’s view of what is trending before, during and even after the conference.

This may initially strike you as an impolite gesture, but if a session is not working for you, it’s okay to leave! NAA actually encourages that mentality!

Find another session that interests you. Meet up with peers outside the conference room who want to network and engage in dialogue about other topics. Invest your time wisely!

Jonathan Treble, WithMe CEO, recently sat down with renowned author, speaker and recruiting executive Jeff Hyman to discuss how his strategy for building the WithMe team has evolved with exponential growth.

This is Treble’s second appearance on Hyman’s “Recruit Rockstars” podcast, and in the year that elapsed between his visits, WithMe underwent significant changes. Amidst those changes, Treble learned many valuable lessons. “The past 12 months have been a rollercoaster,” says Treble. “That’s startup or scale-up life. That’s just business. It’s going to happen.”

One of the most significant changes at WithMe was the introduction of SipWithMe, an innovative multifamily coffee amenity offering premium drinks made from fresh, locally sourced beans.

The inspiration for SipWithMe originated with a conversation between Treble and a PrintWithMe client. At one point, the client casually mentioned the coffee amenity space was in dire need of transformation. Armed with that information, Treble began intensely researching coffee. He notes he discovered that “coffee is a very important perk. According to Multifamily Design+Construction, it’s the #3 requested amenity, after community lounges and in-unit washers and dryers. Many U.S. markets have coffee as a standard amenity in their buildings.” After six months of tireless work, SipWithMe beta was launched in Chicago.

The introduction of SipWithMe prompted another significant change to PrintWithMe - a full refresh of the company’s image. Treble ultimately dropped the nod to the company’s printing roots and rebranded as WithMe, intending to add service line names to the moniker as the company continues to innovate and expand. “The industry really resonated with the branding change. They liked it,” says Treble.

In addition to requiring a rebrand, the rollout of a new product also brought with it the need to hire additional team members. In the podcast, Treble hones in on how his mindset for sales recruiting and interviewing has shifted as the company has grown. He chronicles his current non-negotiable values and personality traits, as well as his thoughts on the need for reps to have industry experience.

Treble also touches on how building a distributed team has supported one of the company’s core values - diversity. “I’m a big remote-first person. I love that we’re fully remote. That gave us the muscle to be able to look overseas for certain roles, and now we have four people working for us outside of the country.”

Committed to hiring the very best candidates at every level, Treble has come to recognize the paramount importance of hiring exceptional CSRs. Over the past year, the company has promoted seven team members, and three of those promotions were within the customer service team. “If we didn’t have such talented CSRs with high potential, we would have been floundering to replace people who had left.”
