NARBERTH, PA, July 10, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Apartment Guide, the No. 1 online marketing solutions provider to the apartment industry, today released a Review Application Programming Interface (API), enabling 4 Walls' Respage to aggregate Apartment Guide's Certified Resident Ratings & ReviewsSM for reporting purposes.
Respage and other reporting software solutions consolidate online reviews from various websites into one dashboard, allowing apartment owners and operators to monitor and manage their online reputations from one place. The Apartment Guide Review API gives Respage the ability to easily incorporate Certified Resident Ratings & Reviews on its dashboards.
"Many of our clients are using Respage to manage the online reputations of their apartment communities, which is increasingly complex as the number of online review sites available to consumers continues to grow," says Scott Asher, vice president of marketing and operations for Apartment Guide. "With the Review API, we're making it as easy as possible for our clients to include Certified Resident Ratings & Reviews in their overall reputation management efforts."
Jackie Koehler, CEO of 4 Walls, Inc., adds: "Integrating the Apartment Guide Review API into the Respage Dashboard will help our clients see comprehensive reviews for individual properties or their entire portfolio. Our clients will also get email alerts for each new review."
Unlike other review sites, Certified Resident Ratings & Reviews allow community management teams to certify the residents before reviews are generated. The certification process prevents phony reviews, which tarnish the reputation of apartment communities, from being posted on the listings.
"With the addition of Certified Resident Ratings & Reviews on these reporting dashboards, apartment owners and operators will get an even more accurate picture of their online reputations," Asher says. "They can be sure that the Certified Resident Ratings & Reviews are from actual residents and free of phony reviews that taint the data."
There are now more than 190,000 Certified Resident Ratings & Reviews on Apartment Guide listings
