Welcome to the Support Stoop – all the information you need to know about how to use Updater, straight from our Success department! 

Busy season is about to kick in, and our Success team is dedicated to making sure that you’re getting the most out of your Updater sites – right when it matters the most! Check out our top five tips for increasing resident engagement.

1. Head over to your brand new Resource Center, where you’ll find boatloads of beautiful marketing assets, like cheat sheets and rack cards, Updater tips and tricks, and training materials for your teams. You can access your Resource Center by clicking your name in the top-right corner of your Dashboard and then clicking “Resource Center.”

2. Share our presentation slides to refresh your site teams and inform your residents about what Updater is. You can download the presentation slides directly from the “Presentation Materials” section of your Resource Center.

3. Mention Updater on your community tours as your newest digital amenity and moving concierge with our iPad presentation slides for site teams. You can find the iPad presentation slides in the “Presentation Materials” section of your Resource Center.

4. Keep Updater on your residents’ radar! Make sure that you residents know that they’ll receive an invitation to use Updater around move-in by mentioning us in your Welcome Letter and attaching our Updater benefits sheet directly in your email (which you can brand for your property and find in the “Marketing Collateral” section of your Resource Center). Feel free to pull verbiage from the email template below!
