Homebuyer Tech Onboarding & Education


The homebuyer's customer experience with technology has long been the "crazy aunt in the basement" no one wants to talk about. Most negatives stem from underutilization and user errors, and often the root cause is not poor-quality products or installation but the lack of orientation, training and ongoing user support. This session will detail best practices and how you can collaborate with your trade partners to make tech a huge plus on your net promoter scores and raving fan referral generator.

Long Term Ownership Experience & Tapping Lifetime Value


Post close it’s all about support and contracted preventative maintenance, re-education and expanding usage and feature sets on your home tech offers. How do you set up that excellent experience with your subs and service providers? How do you stay connected with the experience over time, harvest data and maybe even commissions on some of the system expansion sales? Special bonus concept: is there a tethering of the home tech ownership experience with the home asset management experience? A dual app that will enable the homeowner to both control and operate their home and at the touch of a button manage maintenance, repairs, consumables and maybe even improvements? We think so, and we’ll show you how.

Designed & Managed Connectivity and AV for Units & Shared Spaces


The bulk Wi-Fi revolution is in full flower in multifamily, but is that all there is to it? Connectivity is, by definition, about the hardware (video displays, audio gear, camera, mics) and services (internet, video, audio, conferencing) that connect to it. Thought of that way, should the hardware and connectivity be bundled and managed by providers to enable operators to choose between capex and opex models and manage lifecycles efficiently? We’ll dig into these concepts and show a few real-world baby steps toward delivering them. Eventually they could become the giant steps forward of the near future.
