Self-service Apartment Shopping Delights Renters, and Teams
Funnel and Zumper Team Up to Deliver on the Experience Renters’ Demand
JAN 11, 2023, TAMPA, FL — Funnel Leasing, the only Renter Management Software platform, and Zumper, North America’s largest privately owned rental marketplace, today announced a partnership to offer new tour scheduling functionality. Renters can now directly schedule and confirm tours online, accommodating the onsite team’s availability from the Zumper listing in real-time. Once booked, all renter details are recorded directly in Funnel’s renter-centric guest card to ensure that communication, preferences, and renter information is accessible by all team members no matter their department, no matter their location.
“Renters demand a connected, consistent, and speedy apartment shopping experience. Finding their next home is no exception,” said Ben Rubin, Chief Product Officer at Funnel. “Self-service tour scheduling with real-time agent availability is a win for renters and operators alike. It takes tour scheduling off onsite teams’ plates, and gives renters the autonomy they demand in their shopping experience.”

This partnership lends a helping hand to property management companies who leverage both Funnel and Zumper to craft a modern shopping experience for the 7 million monthly renters searching on Zumper for their next home. Once a renter books a tour, the seamless handoff to onsite teams accelerates high-intent lead-to-lease velocity.
“We’re always on the lookout for ways to drive more high-quality leads to our customers, and this integration does just that–while also meeting renters where they are,” said Juliet Johansson, Zumper’s Chief Revenue Officer.

About Funnel Leasing
Funnel exists so multifamily operators don’t have to pick between antiquated monopolies or single solution challengers. After decades of the status quo, operators are no more efficient, and renters still dread the process of leasing an apartment. We fixed that with an independently-owned platform that turns the entire business model on its head. Renter Management Software is a new category of connected tools built around the renter. The software delivers a consistent, connected experience from first inquiry through years of renewals. All this while simultaneously saving operators quantifiable money through the smaller, and happier teams that only a renter-centric platform can enable.
Zumper is the largest privately owned rental platform in North America with more than 178 million site visits a year. Zumper is on a mission to make renting an apartment as easy as booking a hotel.
Named a 2021 Best Startup Employer by Forbes and a 2021 Best Place to Work by BuiltIn SF, Zumper is headquartered in San Francisco with hubs in Los Angeles, Scottsdale, Chicago, Miami, and Providence. To date, Zumper has raised over $178 million from Kleiner Perkins, Goodwater Capital, Headline, Dawn Capital, and the Blackstone Group. Learn more at www.zumper.com
