CARROLLTON, Texas -- October 29, 2013

RealPage, Inc. (NASDAQ: RP) today announced the acquisition of ActiveBuilding
(, which offers a platform for improving the online
living experience of apartment residents. ActiveBuilding helps owners and
managers attract and retain residents who are interested in more online
services and a much richer communications experience with management and other

RealPage intends to offer two resident portal options for apartment owners.
The first is the current RealPage Resident Portal
( which saves time and expense by providing
residents with the best place to see billing, make payments, create service
requests, reserve amenities and renew leases at their convenience. The second
is ActiveBuilding, an advanced community portal intended for communities that
want more engagement with their residents. Features of ActiveBuilding include:

  *A messaging service that can send individual or mass messages via texts,
    phone calls, emails, Facebook, Twitter and any other social media
  *Automated package tracking with email notices, scanning for logging
    packages and automation of sign-off on pick-up.
  *An interactive online community to drive engagement within the community
    and connectedness among staff and residents.
  *The ability to view and take advantage of local offers by neighborhood

“ActiveBuilding is a powerful tool for communities catering to the growing
resident demographic that wants to be highly engaged with their community and
their neighbors,” said Steve Winn, Chairman and CEO at RealPage, Inc. “While
improving the resident experience it also makes the job of the on-site staff

According to Kobi Bensimon, CEO of ActiveBuilding, “ActiveBuilding gives your
property a life of its own by enabling residents to be active participants in
the daily activities of the property and connect with their neighbors. Your
residents can create their own profiles with specific interests; swap news,
plan events, schedule play dates and send messages. A private community social
space is intended to increase your resident retention and bolster your
property’s reputation.”

ActiveBuilding also offers an unmatched capability for package tracking and
delivery. Apartment communities have felt the impact of the skyrocketing
online shopping trend, having to facilitate the receipt, security and delivery
of packages to residents. ActiveBuilding allows staff to quickly log packages
into the system, automatically sends an email notification to the resident and
enables receipt authorization via eSignature, making the entire process more
efficient and secure.

The ActiveBuilding community portal will soon be tightly integrated with all
of the rich features and transactional capabilities of the RealPage resident
portal to provide one seamless resident experience for the ultimate resident
retention tool. ActiveBuilding will continue to operate in its current
location in Seattle, which is soon to be expanded.
