What Good Rental Housing BI Looks Like

Real Estate Business Analytics (REBA), a data analytics  software company on a mission to change how the rental housing industry uses data, released  a white paper entitled “What Good Rental Housing BI Looks Like,” describing what’s wrong with  most BI today and the key elements to look for when evaluating a platform for rental housing businesses. 

The demand for good business intelligence solutions is growing exponentially and technology  has rocketed the industry into an environment where it is often drowning in data yet struggling  to get actionable insights. “This ‘data-rich, actionable data-poor’ paradigm is driven by an  explosion in the number of real estate technology (RETech) solutions, each with its own set of  data, some of which integrates well with other systems and some of which stays quite siloed,” stated Donald Davidoff, REBA Chief Executive Officer, and Co-Founder. 

The white paper examines the limitations of the rental housing BI choices available to industry  leaders, the four critical success factors that all rental housing companies share which drive  good data, and identifies three key criteria that make for a good BI platform: 

  • A strong business focus implemented by contemporary data modeling principles Provides users what they want, how they want it 
  • Meets modern “table stakes” 

“A good BI platform allows users to see what is important to them for making business  decisions,” added Chris Brust, REBA Chief Product Officer, and Co-Founder. “The notion that 

any one dashboard or report would be great for a wide range of users is a bit of a fool’s errand.  That’s why a good BI platform has tremendous flexibility in its user interface.” 

The white paper was formally released at the National Multifamily Housing Council’s Annual  Meeting in Orlando, FL.
