Director of Marketing, Denver Hollingsworth, shares 3 take aways from the event:
Clean, simple designs prevail
“Our new app design was a big hit among attendees! The community news feed feature, which lists all community messages, events and other activities in one easy-to-read interface, was especially popular,” said Denver Hollingsworth, Director of Marketing.
Prepare to hear the words “Smart Home” a lot…
“Smart Homes/Apartments are the next big thing. Many of the exhibitors at OpTech were highlighting their smart services, but it was clear that Epproach stood out as the only provider with an extensive history in, and knowledge of, network infrastructure and managed support services,” said Hollingsworth.
Integration is key
“Many different Smart Home product manufacturers attended the show, providing Epproach with the unique opportunity to discuss integration with their product lines,” said Hollingsworth, “This was important for us because unlike other competitors, Epproach’s Smart Apartment technology is capable of integrating with many different smart devices, regardless of make or brand.
