Intro

About TurboTenant

Challenges

TurboTenant's Quest for a Seamless Chat Enhancement

As a leading property management software, TurboTenant has consistently aimed to simplify the rental process for landlords and tenants alike. However, as the digital landscape transformed, TurboTenant encountered challenges with its initial in-house chat functionality. Designed to foster communication between landlords and tenants, this chat system began to show limitations as the platform expanded and user communication needs evolved. This started to become a bottleneck in the otherwise smooth rental process.

  1. 01.

    Scalability concerns

    With an increasing number of landlords and tenants using the platform, there was a need for a chat system that could handle the surge in user conversations without any glitches.

  2. 02.

    Resource allocation

    TurboTenant's primary focus was on enhancing its core property management functionalities. The prospect of overhauling the chat system in-house would mean diverting significant resources, potentially impacting the platform's main offerings.

Recognizing these challenges, TurboTenant realized the need for a robust third-party chat solution that could seamlessly integrate with their platform.

"We were updating existing in-app messaging in our web app that was originally built in-house. We also needed to launch in-app messaging in our mobile app. In thinking about the features we wanted to roll out to our users and about scaling, it made more sense for us to pursue an integration partner. CometChat had a number of features we were looking for out of the box"

Enhancing the Rental Experience: TurboTenant's Chat Solution

Sara Capra, Senior Product Manager at Turbotenant, recognized the need to find a third-party in-app chat service that could offer more than their existing chat system. After evaluating several vendors, Turbotenant selected CometChat as their preferred solution for the following reasons:

  1. 01.

    Need for modern communication

    TurboTenant's initial in-house chat system, while functional, lacked the modern features and capabilities that users had come to expect. After evaluating several vendors, TurboTenant found its match in CometChat. With its comprehensive suite of features, including one-on-one and group conversations, video calling, and conferencing, CometChat provided a chat experience that was both modern and user-friendly.

  2. 02.

    Seamless integration and customization

    A significant concern for TurboTenant was the ease of integration. CometChat’s SDKs, known for their simplicity, allowed TurboTenant to swiftly embed the chat functionalities into their platform. This ensured that the integration was not only smooth but also aligned with TurboTenant's existing user interface and experience.

  3. 03.

    Responsive support and partner-like engagement

    Throughout the evaluation and implementation process, CometChat's team provided TurboTenant with responsive support and a partner-like engagement. This ensured a smooth transition and gave TurboTenant the confidence that they had chosen the right chat solution for their platform.

In essence, by integrating CometChat, TurboTenant was able to address its communication challenges, ensuring a seamless and enhanced experience for both landlords and tenants.
