IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 13, 2012) - NWP Services Corporation (NWP), a leading provider of financial transaction processing solutions to the multifamily housing industry, today introduced ResidentHomeServices -- a unique, robust "home services" concierge website for residents of apartment communities nationwide that is powered by MyServicesNow.com. From voice to video and data services, ResidentHomeServices enables property owners and managers to offer their residents an easy to use website to manage the setup and disconnection of electricity; voice, video and data services.

In addition to these home services, MyServicesNow offers residents national "daily deals" and computer support. The service enables property owners and managers to offer their residents an enhanced experience and can generate net operating income (NOI) through agreements with service providers.

"ResidentHomeServices creates an amenity for the residents and helps increase the effectiveness of leasing associates by allowing them to focus on what they do best -- leasing," said Chris Finetto, director of resident services for NWP. "The home service also generates a new source of NOI for apartment owners, while enhancing existing revenue share agreements with the cable and phone companies. ResidentHomeServices bridges the gap between the providers and the residents."

"NWP's addition of ResidentHomeServices to its suite of services is the first of many new initiatives to help our clients enhance their residents' satisfaction," continued Finetto.

"Comparison shopping for home services is not a new concept -- what is new is how ResidentHomeServices provides the shopper with a true 'concierge' experience," stated Deborah Whiting, director of business development and marketing for MyServicesNow. "When we speak to a caller regarding their move and required home services we are speaking in terms of the individual's lifestyle and home services requirements across the board -- not just television, not just Internet. The technology all ties together and sometimes it takes an educated voice to delineate what the resident really needs. That's our sweet spot."
