Student Buddy

Reinvented student customer support that goes above and beyond for your tenants.

Each new tenant’s questions take on average 8 minutes of your staff’s time during the arrival and departure periods..

We can help you save this time, save resources, and get more done.

Expensive hours are used to answer even basic questions when tenants first move in and as a room provider, you naturally want to answer all of them. However, this means your skilled employees are prevented from doing valuable work
