Zego: Simplifying Rent Payments

With social distancing and stay-at-home orders in effect across the country, tenants are turning to Zego’s digital payments platform to safely and securely submit their rent payments from the comfort of their own homes.

Zego’s online platform ensures the health and well-being of both residents and leasing staff by preventing money from exchanging hands in person. Digital payments also give tenants greater flexibility with their payment method via ACH payment or credit cards. For property managers, Zego’s solution delivers funds more quickly than manually processing checks.

In addition to simplifying payments, Zego’s solution helps keep residential communities alert during the pandemic. The Company’s Engage feature allows property managers to share information quickly and easily so their communities stay safe as the situation unfolds. Zego has also created additional resources to help property management companies communicate with residents during this time.
