Frontdesk Announces Guest Screening Partnership with TransUnion
Milwaukee, WI, June 04, 2019 --( Frontdesk, LLC (Frontdesk), a Milwaukee-based company, today announced a partnership with TransUnion Rental Screening Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of TransUnion (NYSE: TRU) to help perform FCRA-compliant background screenings for each stay, regardless of length.

“We’re extremely proud of this partnership, as it propels Frontdesk even further ahead as we bridge the gap between short-term and long-term stays,” said Frontdesk’s Chief Executive Officer Kyle Weatherly. “TransUnion’s powerful platform often provides resident screening services to the long-term residents in the apartment communities in which we operate. We’re thrilled to be using the same data source for our guests with stays that are much shorter-term in nature. Everyone involved, from our guests to our property manager partners, and even our resident neighbors, benefit from this partnership.”

Frontdesk’s promise is to prioritize a secure and seamless experience for all: secure stays for guests and secure policies for apartment communities. The partnership with TransUnion provides Frontdesk with extensive screening capabilities so they may make clear screening decisions with complete confidence. Key features such as comprehensive background checks and cutting-edge identity verifications offer a more complete picture of Frontdesk stays. As a result, the seamless technology allows Frontdesk to conduct proper vetting and facilitate short-term rentals while providing guests a frictionless customer experience.

“Our partnership with Frontdesk provides property managers and residents alike with a win-win solution. They are able to ensure the right checks and balances are in place while benefiting from having screened guests call their communities home, if only for a short stay,” said Maitri Johnson, vice president of TransUnion’s rental screening business. “Our industry-leading criminal background search service will help ensure guests are appropriately screened before getting keys to a short-term rental at an apartment community.”
