Aptexx, KeyBank Partner On Mobile-First Payments Solution

Aptexx and KeyBank have announced a strategic partnership that will streamline the companies' expertise into one centralized, mobile-first solution for the property management and rent payments.

Aptexx, a provider of payment and property management, will combine its Resident Anywhere service with Key's real estate expertise for the solution that will provide the ability to seamlessly collect rent payments, and assist property owners/managers with the ability to send maintenance requests, and deliver resident communications.

Especially helpful on the payments side is Aptexx’s SaaS-based platform, which integrates with real estate accounting systems, and enables property managers to add new properties online without extra IT resources. This new partnership mixes Aptexx’s property-manager focused approach of enhancing the resident experience into Key's broad range of payments expertise.

“Key’s reputation as a leading provider of commercial real estate finance and payments capabilities makes it the ideal partner for our company,” said Aptexx Founder and CEO William Evick. “We are pleased to have such an innovative bank as a partner. The team has demonstrated a strong commitment to the partnership with a focus on delivering a truly great client experience."

Key's team also weighed in on the partnership, speaking toward the electronic payment benefits.

"This partnership with Aptexx exemplifies our strategy to leverage leading-edge fintech innovations and couple them with our deep industry expertise to deliver solutions that address our clients’ specific needs," said Group Head of KeyBank Enterprise Commercial Payments Clark Khayat. “A simplified resident experience improves electronic payment adoption, which helps our real estate clients run their businesses better every day.”
