Company becomes first to offer a Room Planner application at no additional costATLANTA, June 19, 2014 — (PRNewswire) — Apartment Guide, the leading digital marketing solutions partner in the apartment industry, today launched its new Room Planner application and 3D Floor Plans for clients listing apartments for rent on ApartmentGuide.com. 3D Floor Plans are also available on the mobile site and apps for iPhone and Android devices.
All client listings will be equipped with Room Planner free of charge, while all Diamond and Platinum package listings will feature 3D Floor Plans at no cost to the client. The new applications are a product of Apartment Guide's investment in redrawing more than 200,000 client floor plans.
The Room Planner provides prospective renters with an interactive tool to help arrange furniture in various floor plan layouts on a client's listing. 3D Floor Plans automatically convert two-dimensional and HD Floor Plans into a more realistic three-dimensional view of what a floor plan looks like furnished and unfurnished.
"Our new and innovative Room Planner and 3D Floor Plans empower prospective renters to better visualize the living experience at an apartment community without ever visiting the property," says Scott Asher, vice president of marketing and operations for RentPath, Apartment Guide's parent company. "These additions further underscore our commitment to innovation and providing the best possible experience for prospective renters and apartment companies alike."
According to Apartment Guide internal data, prospective renters are more likely to remain engaged with an apartment listing when it has Room Planner and 3D Floor Plans. Longer engagement time typically results in more qualified leads.
"Our research indicates that engaged prospective renters stay on listings longer and are much more inclined to submit an email lead or pick up the phone and call the property," Asher says. "Our Room Planner and 3D Floor Plans offer an enticing engagement opportunity for prospective renters, who want to know as much as they can before spending their valuable time visiting an apartment community, which also equates to higher quality leads to our clients."
Apartment Guide is the only online marketing solutions provider to offer Room Planner to its clients free of charge, and the only provider to give both furnished and unfurnished 3D Floor Plans to clients with eligible packages.
