Upgraded networks are increasingly important for multifamily communities, as new technologies rely on high-speed, advanced internet connectivity. Today’s residents need upgraded bandwidth to support all their devices, including smart room devices like thermostats and automated light treatments. Internet needs are going to grow as new technologies like the metaverse and augmented reality continue to grow in importance.
Below are the top four benefits owners and property management will gain from selecting ImpruviX by World Cinema as the trusted Managed Wi-Fi provider for their multi-family community.
1. Wi-Fi as a Fee-Based Amenity
Apartment complexes can offer property-wide internet access as a value-added service for residents, increasing retention rates and improving the renter experience. Managed Wi-Fi by ImpruviX is the easy solution for apartment Wi-Fi. Furthermore, residents can immediately connect to the internet when they move in, avoiding complicated procedures like selecting an individual Wi-Fi provider.
Managed Wi-Fi is an additional stream of revenue for apartment complexes. Charging a slightly higher fee for monthly Wi-Fi is commonplace, especially considering the contractual obligations and costs associated with the investment. Managed Wi-Fi is an excellent way for apartment complexes to receive extra funds each month. Residents are willing to pay more to avoid the hassle of installing and managing their own internet service.
2. Improving Resident Retention
ImpruviX by World Cinema brings security and consistency to residents, increasing retention rates and improving the renter experience as a whole. Custom network design by ImpruviX ensures residents are supported with high-speed, secure digital connectivity, including property-wide internet access and Wi-Fi call support. Managed Wi-Fi is an attractive feature for apartment residents as they can rely on property-wide, secure internet access.
Furthermore, resident amenities have expanded beyond the on-site gym and business center, as apartment dwellers are increasingly reliant on constant connectivity with minimal interruption. Today’s residents expect to stream content and use the internet seamlessly throughout the property, moving beyond their respective dwellings. Additionally, apartment complexes can advertise their Wi-Fi services as an added amenity, setting the property apart from local competition.
3. Reliable Connectivity for Staff and Internal Systems
The apartment management team also needs reliable internet connectivity for staff support and internal systems like cloud-based video management systems. In addition to providing Wi-Fi to common areas, property management needs internet access to communicate with residents and prospective tenants alike. Property-wide Wi-Fi is also essential for security cameras and remote video monitoring solutions like ImpruviX common area cameras. Furthermore, providing Wi-Fi benefits not only residents but internal staff as well.
4. IT Support and Easy Operation
Managed Wi-Fi by ImpruviX simplifies the internet experience for property managers and residents alike. Property-wide Wi-Fi simplifies the move-in experience for new residents as they can immediately connect to the internet upon moving in. Additionally, the turnover process is also easier for apartment managers as the ImpruviX team of system engineers and technology architects are there 24/7. World Cinema’s managed Wi-Fi solution is easily upgraded and centrally managed by our team, saving apartment management the hassle and cost of hiring an internal IT team to update the system.
Additionally, the ImpruviX Connectivity platform is flexible and scalable to accommodate the growing needs of each individual end-user.
