TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/14 -- A correction has been issued for the release disseminated earlier today at 6:00 AM ET. The release disseminated was not the final copy. The complete and corrected release follows:

Today Tridel, Canada's largest high-rise condominium developer announces a partnership with bazinga!, the private social network and essential utility for residential communities, following a successful pilot project in four of Tridel's recent communities. The partnership will see the mobile technology platform, bazinga! integrated in all new Tridel condo communities as well as be available to all existing Tridel properties which will increase bazinga!'s footprint to almost 100,000 homes.

In response to the explosive growth in social and mobile technology, combined with the consumer demand for interactive, real time service, bazinga! has created a unique platform specifically catered to the real estate industry. The partnership with Tridel has allowed for collaborative enhancement of the platform, working to create communities while providing a utility that all stakeholders in a building need. At its core the bazinga! platform provides residents, developers and property managers a centralized, private, social communication channel, offering all parties an equal voice and open dialogue. The platform also works to streamline and centralize building management processes and documents, making them readily accessible for property managers and residents alike.

The partnership with Tridel will serve to aggressively expand bazinga!'s Eastern market share and add the credibility and experience of an eight-decade residential community builder to the tech start-up's client roster.

Tridel homebuyers, will receive added value and benefits with a bazinga! powered home. Streamlined communication between residents boosts sense of community and is proven to build connected neighbourhoods. The integration of bazinga! will also allow residents to provide direct feedback to Tridel about the condos they build. With this data, building design or management can be adapted to appeal to the evolving demands of condo buyers which will ultimately increase overall customer satisfaction.

"People are living closer than ever, yet few of us know our own neighbours," says Joseph Nakhla, Founder and CEO of bazinga!. "At bazinga! we want to disrupt the way people think about traditional community living by putting the power of community back into the hands of homeowners. Tridel understands that a home is more than just its walls, it's also the experience and care a resident receives after completion. Our partnership with Tridel is another milestone for bazinga! and is a strong indicator of the uptake we have been seeing across North America in recent months."

Jim Ritchie, Tridel's Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing, shares, "As technology and the needs of homebuyers evolved, we have looked for the right partnership that will offer long lasting value to our residents and property managers. We believe this is bazinga! and are thrilled to offer our homebuyers more than just a home, but a community."

As developers and property managers across North America look to technology to address long-standing industry issues, platforms like bazinga! will be evolving to provide the solutions. To find out more about the bazinga! platform visit mybazinga.com.
