Property management software provider Rentec Direct is teaming up with Sure, a company that specializes in renters insurance. The new partnership allows property managers to set and monitor insurance requirements for specific properties inside the Rentec Direct platform, while also giving tenants easy access to the Sure portal to shop for insurance policies.
“Direct feedback from our customers helps to inform our technology partnerships, as well as regular updates to our software, and this new integration with Sure is no different,” said Nathan Miller, president and founder of Rentec Direct. “Users were asking for an easy way to track and buy renters insurance and Sure is a leading insurance technology provider in this arena. A partnership with them made good sense for our clients.”
Renters insurance is not just a convenience. Property managers and owners can benefit from an added layer of protection on their property, and help prevent disputes between landlord and tenant arising from damaged tenant property. Landlords can require that renters insurance be purchased as part of a lease agreement, and the new Sure integration allows them to monitor compliance right in the Rentec Direct platform that they are already using on a daily basis.
Tenants can use Sure portal via the Rentec Tenant Portal to shop for an affordable policy for their needs, spanning policies from leading providers like Nationwide, QBE, and Assurant. The new integration allows tenants to purchase insurance online or upload existing policies in the system to share with their landlord. Built-in notifications will alert both property managers and the tenants when insurance is due or when an existing policy will expire soon to allow plenty of lead time to renew.
“Sure has always been focused on simplifying the process of getting insured. Renters insurance has long been one of the more challenging policies for consumers to purchase and know what they’ve covered,” says Sure founder and CEO Wayne Slavin. “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Rentec Direct to bring our industry leading solution to their clients.”
The seamless integration between the Rentec Direct portal and Sure ensures that users will experience time savings right away. The automated functionality simplifies the process for tenants and owners and ensures coverage is always up to date.
