Assurant and Updater sign strategic partnership to simplify move-ins for property management companies

Moving is one of the most stressful life events. At Updater, we understand this all too well and promise to make the process as effortless and stress-free as possible. Our app helps renters organize and complete everything for a move including transferring utilities, setting up internet and TV services, registering pets and vehicles, and – of course – obtaining renters insurance.

We’re excited to announce a new partnership with Assurant, a leading renters insurance provider. This partnership includes an integration that embeds Assurant’s industry-leading renters insurance product into our moving app, creating a seamless and hassle-free experience that benefits both residents and multifamily companies.

Assurant’s products will be available in the Updater app for residents of properties that require renters insurance. The integration will allow residents to seamlessly purchase and, in certain cases, bundle the premium with their rent payment.

Multifamily leasing and onsite teams will also enjoy the benefits of this partnership. When new residents purchase renters insurance through Assurant within the Updater app, the proof of purchase will automatically sync back to the core property management system. This eliminates the need to handle documentation manually.

“Partnering with forward-thinking companies like Updater aligns with our long-term digital and strategic initiatives,” said Ryan Lumsden, president of Multifamily Housing at Assurant. “As leaders in the Multifamily Housing industry, our role is not only to protect our Property Management Company clients and end customers, but to push the industry forward with innovative solutions, creative ideas, and synergistic partnerships. We partnered with Updater because its resident onboarding product not only drives tangible value for both property management companies and renters, but finds new ways to push the multifamily industry forward with technology.”

We’re excited to offer our users the convenience and peace of mind that comes with Assurant’s top-of-the-line renters insurance. Our mutual commitment to innovation and customer satisfaction will make the transition to a new home as smooth as possible.
