The iPad version is already in place with Spherexx.com's SweetSpotDashboard.com application. Spherexx.com also provides market survey software for ZRS with MarketSurveyTools.com.

September 18, 2013 - RentPush.com® div Spherexx.com® Sponsors National Apartment Association’s Third Annual Apartment Revenue Management Conference
Apartment Revenue Management is a relatively new concept of asset performance optimization through sophisticated algorithmic programming. The software weighs in multiple organic and extraneous factors to pinpoint the best price for the moment per unique unit. The travel industry has been using this system for thirty years. According to industry reports, about 20% of the multifamily market share is currently using revenue management software, primarily large REITS and large owner-managed property management companies. Many smaller operators have been unable to approach the heretofore expense to launch a full blown revenue management program—but that is changing fast.
“Our decision to develop apartment revenue management software was a natural progression of our knowledge base, both as a service provider to the apartment industry and as apartment industry experts since the seventies. Our thirteen years of experience as a service provider in the apartment industry in mastering Internet advertising, search engine positioning, demand management, market survey analytics and property management software integration has provided a solid foundation to build RentPush. We have property management professionals on staff at Spherexx.com, and many were involved in the conceptual development of our RentPush.com product, as well as a team of mathematical scientists and programming architects," states Wilson.
