Putting Bots in IVR?

BetterBot and Courtesy Connection solve a major problem together… missed calls and voicemails

“Industry data shows that 50% of all phone calls to an apartment community don’t get a live leasing agent,” said Ryan Nigro, CEO of Courtesy Connection, an answering service software platform for the property management industry. “So the caller either just hangs up in frustration or leaves a voicemail that becomes one of a thousand things needing follow-up in a leasing office.”

To help solve this problem, Courtesy Connection gives prospective renters the option to receive an SMS text message with a link to engage with BetterBot’s conversational bot. “If you’d like assistance now, press [the appropriate option], and we’ll send you a text message with a link to our digital leasing assistant .”  Did it work?  “Yep,” said Robert Turnbull, President and Founder of BetterBot, Multifamily’s most adopted conversational platform. “One-third of all prospective renters elected to receive a text message, and, of those, 96% subsequently had a conversation with the BetterBot digital agent.”

In addition to the high text-request-to-conversation ratio, 36% of prospects who had a conversation became a handoff to the property by scheduling an appointment or requesting the next steps. 

“When I first learned about this concept, I was instantly sold,” said Gina Carter with Blue Ridge Companies. “In today’s fast-paced world where instant gratification is key, this platform reinforces the notion that people want immediate answers through the quickest means possible.”

Companies that participated in this pilot include Asset Living, Blue Ridge, Caliber Living, and Northwood Ravin. The data referenced above consisted of 21,818 calls, of which 2,410 (11.0%) self-identified as prospective renters.

Rentgrata x BetterBot – Better Together

Welcome Rentgrata, our most recent integration partner.

Rentgrata, Multifamily’s leading resident referral platform and BetterBot, Multifamily’s most-adopted conversational leasing solution announced today they have integrated their products.

“There’s so much information today’s prospective renter can get long before they visit the apartment community leasing office,” said Robert Turnbull, president, COO and co-founder of BetterBot. “But the one thing they still struggle finding out is the question of ‘do I fit here?’ Because BetterBot is in the business of getting relevant information to renters wherever, whenever, it became overwhelmingly apparent we needed to help facilitate this information using Rentgrata’s solution.”

Rentgrata’s unique resident referral program bridges much-desired dialogue between prospective renters and a host of current residents. In so doing, prospective residents get an actual resident’s unadulterated perspective of their experience living at a particular community.

“Our clients often ask how they can continue to get the opportunity to message a resident in front of more prospects, not just those who land on the community website. They want this to be accessible everywhere because it differentiates them from their competition down the street,” explained Ben Margolit, CEO and co-founder at Rentgrata. “With this integration and partnership, Rentgrata can now also be found everywhere BetterBot is. Additionally, to keep our clients’ websites free of too many widgets, we can now launch the BetterBot conversational solution from our widget, or BetterBot can launch ‘chat with a resident’ from theirs, whichever the community prefers.”

In addition to living on a property website, BetterBot can also be deployed anywhere in the digital marketplace such as Google My Business, Facebook, Yelp, Instagram, and can now intercept prospective renter leads from every ILS. That means Rentgrata’s “Chat with a resident” solution will be introduced to all these new channels and prospective renters further expanding their reach.

4 of the best NLP Chatbot Alternatives to Check Out

Chatbots come with so many different functionalities. We know that Natural Language processing bots can be enticing, but at the same time, the functionality isn’t fully developed. That’s why we are sharing with you four different alternatives to NLP bots. These bots use guided conversation to help users navigate through the leasing process and are proven highly effective. If you’re wondering what the difference is between these bots, check out our article on understanding various bot types

RentDynamics offers a series of solutions catered to communicating with your prospects and residents. Their resident journey encompasses a white glove experience with their 24-hour call center paired with a conversational leasing chatbot. Prospective residents can find their chatbot and converse with it to find the information they need quickly. If users cannot find the information they need (and they can about 99% of the time), they can easily call the property at any time of the day or night and get the answers they are trying to find. Rent Dynamics chatbot offers users access to information 24/7, which is what makes them so unique. 

Resite Bot

Last but not least, Resite offers digital marketing services that are customized for small to midsize property management companies.

Digible Podcast – Discussing Chatbots in the Multifamily Space

Our founder and COO, Robert Turnbull, had the fantastic opportunity to be featured on the Digible Dudes Podcast. In this episode, Robert shares valuable insights about chatbots in the multifamily space. He also weighs in on the user experience with multifamily chatbots. Here are a few of the highlights from this episode. If you’d like to listen to the full episode, you can find it HERE or anywhere you listen to podcasts. 

Discussing Omnichannel Marketing – 32:59-34:17

“The bot, our bot can be put on a property website, but it was the only one that’s designed to actually be distributed to Google my business, which is an Instagram and Facebook, Facebook marketplace, Yelp, and the list goes on and on. So wherever a consumer, prospective renter find that property, the bot could actually live there and answer your questions.

24/7, 365. Now you talk about stickiness, if the bots on your property website and on GMB and yelp and, and, and, and now it’s a little hard to replace us because we’re so baked in, and it’s actually working really well. Google my business, and so for some of our properties represents 40% of the conversations happening.

And so GMB is just killing it. Um, and when you see the bot working at 3:00 AM, midnight, 5:00 AM having conversations on Google my business. Now you’re, now you’re starting to get some stickiness. We are getting into what we call WIP: web lead intercept protocol, where we can actually start intercepting leads coming through from various ILSs and responding and converting those into synchronous bot conversations and send just leads going into a CRM. Now we’re starting to create additional value where we’re baking ourselves into the processes. And suddenly, we’re not just a bot on your property website. We’re an integral part of your marketing solution.”

Why Bots Fit For Today’s Consumer – 48:40-48:59

“Again, people just want information. They want it now. 24/7, 365, and they want what they want. What they don’t want to do is fill out a lead form. They don’t want to wait until tomorrow. So these are things that are not changing anytime soon. And this is why bots just kind of fit today’s consumer.”

BetterBot’s Company Culture –  1:03:58-1:04:31

“I mean, I don’t just think it is a better bot; I think it is a better company. And I feel very much like a family now that said, that’s maybe a little kumbaya and touchy-feely, but I mean, come on when you’re having people who are running various departments in your company and people in your company who feel that way, you’re doing something right.

And to me, business is less than half of it is the people you’re working with and what they’re giving away. That really makes the difference. And that’s why I love working with this type of style of company, the size of company, your type of company. I think we share these philosophies.”
