Leading student housing resource completes an impressive two years, prepares for an exciting future

Screen Shot 2015-04-20 at 11.09.01 AM

Norfolk, Va. – (April 20, 2015) – ForRentUniversity.com® (FRU), a subsidiary of For Rent Media Solutions™ (FRMS), is specifically targeted to off-campus housing. The mission of FRU is to connect apartment communities located near colleges and universities with the student demographic, including undergraduates, graduate students, international students, faculty and staff.  FRU offers increased online exposure through dynamic search outlets on the website, innovative listing tactics to promote communities, and direct engagement with residents through social media.

FRU, with more than 4,500 colleges and universities searchable on the site, including trade schools and community colleges, features more options than any other student housing website. No other off-campus housing site covers so many schools across the U.S. as FRU does. In celebration of these accomplishments and its second birthday, FRU has rolled out a new and revitalized website. Inspired by a student focus group that helped develop the new, sleeker design, the new FRU site:

  • Is more user-friendly
  • Looks more contemporary
  • Has more effective calls-to-action
  • Has an easier conversion process
  • Provides an improved mobile and tablet experience
  • Exhibits clearer call-outs for bedroom vs. unit pricing for a more informative user experience

In addition to an enhanced responsive design format, the new FRU site is unique in that each listing price also has a “per person” price for better clarification of the price of the bedroom vs. the price of the whole unit (which may include more than one bedroom). Either “apartment,” “house,” or “bedroom” appears on each listing for simple clarification.

“As more and more students and their parents are looking for off-campus student housing, FRU has stayed abreast of consumer and social trends to better enhance the search experience of undergrads, graduate students, international students, professors, etc. and provide more quality leads to our student housing property managers,” said Terry Slattery, president of For Rent Media Solutions. “Coming off an extremely rewarding two years of FRU with a constant momentum in growth, we are looking forward to what the future of the student housing industry holds, and how we can most effectively involve ourselves in it.”

Norfolk, VA – April 7, 2015- Dominion Dealer Solutions announced today that Dominion ACCESS®, is now a fully integrated partner of the Toyota DMS Integration Program. Toyota Motor Sales USA, Inc.’s (TMS) Dealer Daily Open Access (DDOA) program integrates with Dominion ACCESS via real-time secure communications across multiple departments including F&I, Sales, Service, and Accounting. The Dealer Daily Open Access interface has been developed based on the Standards for Technology in Automotive Retail (STAR) and is available to TMS dealerships nationwide, with the exception of GST and SET Toyota dealers.

“The integration between Dominion ACCESS and Toyota DDOA lets us provide another cost-effective solution to Toyota dealerships.  We were very pleased to work with our existing customers, helping to streamline their operations, during the development process and look forward to forming long relationships with additional Toyota and Lexus dealers in the near future,” noted Van Koppersmith, president of Dominion DMS for Dominion Dealer Solutions.

Dominion ACCESS is a Windows-based dealership management system that gives dealers a built-in prospecting tool, the ability to reference closed deals, personalized dashboards, award-winning customer service, and one customer and vehicle record for all dealership departments. The Dominion ACCESS software has flexible contract terms and no add-on fees for dealers.

Jerry York, dealer principal of York’s of Houlton, added, “We are a long-time ACCESS customer and have been very pleased with the ease of use, customer-friendly screens and personal customer service.  We came from one of the ‘big 3’ DMS providers before moving to ACCESS and can’t be happier with the product and service, especially at a much lower cost than our former DMS provider.  The recent integration of Toyota has only enhanced our enthusiasm for Dominion ACCESS.  It has saved us double-entry time in the parts department, warranty claims administration area, and financial statement processing.  I’m especially happy to see that Dominion is continuing to make improvements to the software, ensuring a competitive DMS product for the foreseeable future.”

Toyota and Lexus dealers using the Dominion ACCESS integration through Dealer Daily communications are now provided with Real-Time Vehicle Inventory Updates, Retail Delivery Reporting, Financial Statement Submission, Warranty Credit Postings, Service Campaign Inquiries, Part Master Updates, Warranty Submissions, and Vehicle Service Histories.

Dominion Dealer Solutions and Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc., look forward to identifying additional integration opportunities that improve automotive dealership operations. For more information on the Dominion ACCESS dealership management system, call 877-421-1040.
