ICM Property Services, a leading property management company dedicated to enhancing the rental experience, is proud to announce its partnership with Zenbase, a fintech company specializing in ESG inspired financial tools for renters. This collaboration aims to empower renters by offering Canada’s only automated rent reporting to Equifax for building credit and a flexible rent payment option as a budgeting tool.
The partnership between ICM Property Services and Zenbase highlights the commitment to supporting residents to take control of their financial future. With an increasing number of people choosing to rent over homeownership, the need for financial empowerment within the rental market has never been greater.
Zenbase’s technology will enable ICM Property Services to offer automated rent reporting to Equifax giving tenants the opportunity to strengthen their credit profiles by simply paying rent on time. This service not only benefits renters looking to build credit but also helps property managers and landlords attract responsible tenants.
Additionally, the partnership will provide tenants with greater flexibility in their rent payments. Zenbase’s budgeting tools will allow renters to customize their payment schedules, making it easier to manage their finances and meet their financial goals.
“We are thrilled to partner with Zenbase to offer our tenants a range of new financial tools that can truly improve their lives,” said Lacy Samson, Associate, Director, Residential Property Management at ICM Property Services. “This collaboration underscores our commitment to enhancing the rental experience for our residents by empowering them to build their credit and manage their budgets more effectively.”
“We are excited to work with ICM Property Services to provide innovative financial solutions to renters,” said Koray Can Oztekin, CEO and Founder at Zenbase. “Our mission is to make financial freedom accessible to everyone, and this partnership is another step toward achieving that goal.”
ICM Property Services was able to offer Zenbase’s automated rent reporting and flexible rent payments to all of its residents after just 2 days spent setting up a fully integrated offering with no negative impact to their operations.
Zenbase, a leader in smart rent payments, is committed to economic inclusion that fosters financial empowerment for renters. Our solutions aid the financial wellness of renters while improving operational efficiency for property managers. Rent is usually due on the first of the month, but that doesn’t align with most people’s bi-monthly pay cycle. Zenbase fixed that misalignment by offering residents the option to split their rent into two monthly payments and provides other financial health tools including Canada’s only automated rent reporting to support building resident’s credit.
