American Campus Communities – Resident Portal

Project Details

American Campus Communities received a facelift from the 2009 CURTIS Digital development.  Now responsive the site looks as good as it functions!

  • Responsive design that functions on multiple devices
  • Integration with social media (Facebook, Twitter, news widgets)
  • Allows users to pay rent and submit work orders in a seamless portal experience

American Campus is a publically traded company and is the largest provider of student housing in the United States, based here in Austin. We provide software development and support for all of their public facing systems which facilitate and manage over 100,000 active residents and guarantors. Our systems process rent payments, work orders and social systems. A recent project for us was to upgrade/update a portal we developed for them in 2009 to be more user friendly, put in place more metrics and counters to measure usability and end user usage of the system. We also re-skinned and updated the front to be responsive and work on desktop and mobile devices. The system processes ~30MM per month in rent payments and sees roughly 200,000 work orders per year.

The Technology we used

.NET, SQL, Bootstrap, MVC, CSS3, jQuery
