Partnership offers special pricing and services to pet-parent apartment renters


CHICAGO, June 12, 2018 -- Mobile Doorman, the industry-leading creator of custom-branded apartment apps for multifamily communities across the United States, announced today a new beta partnership with Rover, the world’s largest network of 5-star pet sitters and dog walkers, connecting dog owners with trusted pet care whenever they need it.


As the Official Pet Services Partner of Mobile Doorman during the duration of the beta, Rover will provide unique perks for Mobile Doorman partner buildings, including special pricing on particular Rover services and promotions for new customers. Promotions will be made accessible through residents’ custom mobile apps across select Mobile Doorman markets.


“Rover and Mobile Doorman share the goal of providing convenient and accessible services to customers, making this beta partnership a natural fit,” said Kyle Roe, Director of Corporate Development at Rover. “Rover's breadth of services - boarding, walking, sitting, daycare, and drop-ins - will make the properties that use Mobile Doorman even more pet friendly while also making new pet ownership more accessible to residents.”


Today’s announcement addresses one of the highest priorities for apartment residents: their pets. Data from RentPath indicates that more than 65 percent of renters are pet owners. A pet-friendly community is also among the top amenities that renters look for when searching for an apartment home, according to RentPath.


“Our strategic partnerships are truly aimed at enhancing the living experiences of apartment renters,” said Bob Matteson, Founder of Mobile Doorman. “Today’s renter is evolving so it is vitally important our industry services, and how we communicate those services evolves, with them. We’re excited to be partnering with Rover to provide pet-parent residents with discounted access to their wide breadth of pet services through our custom-branded app.”
