CHICAGO, April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SatisFacts (www.SatisFacts.com) is excited to announce that Waterton Residential and 30 of their apartment communities are 2013 national resident satisfaction award winners. SatisFacts works with over 200 management companies and well over a million apartment homes nationally. Waterton's hard work has not gone unnoticed – evidenced by last year's SatisFacts program results showing high levels of resident satisfaction. By successfully delivering an outstanding resident experience, the company's residents reward this effort with higher lease renewal rates and less resistance to rent increases. And the ability to proudly promote the company as a best-of-breed service provider is immensely important in today's ratings-obsessed world.
"Our associates continue to drive our Customer Service Promise; to delivering exceptional living experiences to our residents, by providing a community they are proud to call home," says Waterton Residential Executive Vice President and COO, Greg Lozinak. "Our Superior SatisFacts score is a true testament to the commitment of all Waterton associates and their dedication to our customer's satisfaction."
Doug Miller, founder and president of SatisFacts, adds, "Everyone wins when there is a passion for delivering world-class service – and resident feedback shows Waterton has this passion! Residents reward these highly performing properties by renewing their lease which reduces turnover and grows NOI. And dramatic marketing advantages can be realized leveraging scores and awards to boost a property and company's online reputation. When resident expectations are being met and exceeded, then SatisFacts helps clients leverage this by using award logos in advertising and marketing programs, posting scores online via our relationships with TurnSocial and PropertySolutions, and being able to seamlessly integrate ratings directly into property pages on ApartmentRatings.com via the powerful Verified Resident Program."

For better or worse, DevOps has gone mainstream. All doubt was removed when IBM and HP threw up their respective DevOps microsites. Where are we on the hype cycle?

The goal of DevOps is to connect all aspects of app...

What we need are real-world examples and tactics for security practitioners to be part of DevOps. In his session at DevOps Summit, Andrew...
