Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – July 20, 2021) – Zonetail Inc. (TSXV: ZONE) (OTCQB: ZTLLF) (“Zonetail” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has successfully completed the final beta test phase with Yardi Voyager and is now ‘live’ with its new mobile residential platform.
The successful beta test with Yardi Voyager, concludes a major milestone in Zonetail’s continued growth and expansion in the massive North American residential market. The Zonetail platform is now officially ‘live’ with Yardi, and immediately provides the Company the opportunity to service thousands of new condominium and apartment buildings, townhouse complexes and other property management groups within the Yardi portfolio, the largest property management software company on the continent. In addition, this significant achievement will enable Zonetail’s U.S. launch, as well as the launch of the Company’s third vertical, rental apartments.
Zonetail’s new residential mobile platform named ‘Zonetail Home’, will provide condo and apartment residents across North America, access and interaction with their building amenities and services, as well as direct connectivity with building management, streamlining the entire communication process between the property manager and the residents.
In addition, ‘Zonetail Home’ will connect building residents with neighbouring services and businesses such as, grocery, food delivery, insurance options, telecommunication services, local retail and restaurants, entertainment, financial services and much more. These companies pay to be on the platform to reach the lucrative, yet hard-to-reach, high-rise residential market, to advertise their products and services directly to condo and apartment residents.
“The Zonetail platform is unique in that it doesn’t just provide additional connectivity between property management and residents, but it also ties in the businesses in the local community in a way that no one has successfully done in the past. It’s clearly a value-add to our systems and to the managers and residents that use them,” said Peter Altobelli, Vice President of Yardi Canada.
“The goal is to onboard thousands of new buildings and tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of new residential users over the coming months, and that’s just the beginning. We believe as our rollout plan is implemented, that it will attract businesses from Southern California to Newfoundland, and from Alaska to Florida, who will want to participate on the platform,” said Mark Holmes, Zonetail’s President and CEO.
Holmes added, “I know our colleagues in the property management industry, our advertising partners and our shareholders have been anxiously awaiting this news. I’d like to thank our development team, the team at Yardi and our beta test partner property management corporation for all of their efforts in getting it completed.”
The focus of the Company for the remainder of 2021 will be centered on executing the rollout with the new residential platform in both Canada and the U.S. as well as bringing additional advertisers and strategic partners into the fold.
New features within the platform are also planned to be introduced over the coming months, such as a forums section allowing residents to communicate with each other, a loyalty program, and several other exciting upgrades to drive continued engagement and ROI for all stakeholders.
Zonetail Inc. (TSXV: ZONE) provides mobile platforms for condominiums, apartments and hotels, providing residents and guests access and interaction with building amenities and services as well as essential neighbouring services, restaurants, stores, and other businesses.
