RISMEDIA, Dec. 18, 2007-RealPage Inc., a provider of point of lease systems to the multifamily industry, announced an expansion of the criminal database in its LeasingDeskTM Screening product.
The offering added Pennsylvania statewide criminal court access as well as criminal court data from 224 counties across the country. The expansion now allows multifamily property managers to instantly screen prospective residents for criminal data in 47 states, and retrieve criminal information from 388 criminal court jurisdictions. In addition, LeasingDesk Screening customers also have access to comprehensive sex offender and terrorist databases.
“Our goal has always been to offer the industry and our customers the most comprehensive criminal database.” said David Carner, senior vice president of RealPage. “Now with instant access to accurate and reliable criminal information from 47 states, we provide extensive breadth and depth of criminal data searches with even greater speed and accuracy.”
According to the company, once a prospective resident’s information is entered into the system, LeasingDesk Screening automatically retrieves data gathered from multiple criminal databases based on addresses and name variations uncovered from multiple sources, usually in less than 30 seconds. This information is combined with credit, eviction, fraud, check writing history and the company’s proprietary rental payment database into a single scored report.
By returning a comprehensive criminal recommendation so quickly, LeasingDesk Screening provides property managers and leasing professionals with a fast, streamlined workflow in addition to the increased office efficiencies and the ability to select the highest quality residents.
LeasingDesk Screening, formerly OneSite Screening, is part of the point of lease systems introduced by RealPage earlier this year. RealPage’s LeasingDesk system is specifically designed for the multifamily industry, automating everything from lease application through execution of a signed lease. The product line also includes online leasing, electronic leasing forms, eSignatures, security deposit alternatives and renter’s insurance.
