CIC, the nation’s premiere tenant screening firm, is pleased to announce that Ready2Apply, a convenient online rental application and lease generation solution, has been updated to improve overall usability. With the new changes taking effect this week, Ready2Apply helps property managers quickly and efficiently process qualified tenants by eliminating data entry redundancies.
The same information provided by potential renters in the online application, is used to conduct a comprehensive background check, from the nation’s most reliable tenant screening firm. Additionally, Ready2Apply is customizable, and can be uniquely tailored to meet the needs of each client.
Recent updates to the application aim to improve usability, accessibility and overall system responsiveness. Changes include a new lease editor, new lease generation dialog, support for multiple paper sizes, more robust uploading, support for multiple leases, individual addendum and agreement handling, as well as resizable replacement tags with additional formatting controls, such as auto-shrinking text to fix.
The customizable rental application, credit card payment feature, built-in tenant screening and auto-population of leasing forms, simplify the entire process for both property managers and renters. Ready2Apply includes a tenant background check, providing access to all three credit bureaus, Experian RentBureau’s rental history, nationwide criminal and eviction histories, bad check search, decisioning model and more giving property managers peace of mind, knowing that the information CIC provided in the tenant screening report is the most comprehensive information available.
“We wanted to find a way for our clients to move in qualified renters more efficiently while reducing staff time. Traditionally the process takes over one week, but with Ready2Apply’s customizable online application, payment feature, automatic tenant check, and lease generation, that time can be cut in half thus saving our clients money” said Sabrina Bower, President of CIC.
Clients are provided a unique Ready2Apply web link for placement on their website, apartment listing sites, or to simply email to applicants. Once an applicant begins the process with Ready2Apply, the entire process is typically completed in less than 15 minutes.
The online rental application also gives property managers an opportunity for revenue generation. Clients have the ability to use Ready2Apply for free, as renters can pay CIC directly to cover the cost of the application and tenant screening. Additionally, if they choose to do so, clients may direct deposit renters’ application fees through a merchant account and be invoiced the cost of the screening.
CIC’s Ready2Apply, not only works to meet the application, tenant screening and forms generation needs of each client, but payment options as well. This flexibility and new improved usability make the online system an ideal solution for property managers.
