The Habitat Company Launches New Online Payment System

Sheila Byrne
CHICAGO, IL – Chicago-based The Habitat Company, a leading U.S. multifamily developer and property manager, has become one of the first national property management companies to roll all of its market-rate rental properties into an electronic rental payment system.

Habitat implemented its new online payment program earlier this spring across its five-state, 8,800-unit rental portfolio to benefit its residents as well as the environment.

Habitat first introduced an online payment-only system to a few properties in 2011. After strong success with the new payment program, Habitat began to gradually move more of its properties to electronic rental payment systems and recently revamped its payment system to make it possible for residents of all of its market-rate properties to pay from the comfort of their home or anywhere they have online access.

This move furthers Habitat’s role as an innovative industry leader. Now, residents no longer have to spend time physically dropping off payments or waste paper writing checks.

“The Habitat Company is always looking for ways to positively impact the lives of residents, and streamlining our payment system achieved immediate benefits as well as environmental efficiencies,” said Sheila Byrne, executive vice president of property management for The Habitat Company.

 “Plus, on the back end, eliminating the administrative and accounting work of processing checks helps free up time for the Habitat team to better serve the needs of our residents.”
