TransUnion TRU has entered into a partnership with renter-centric leasing platform, Funnel Leasing. The collaboration is aimed at helping renters with a smooth application experience and operators with better screening decisions.

As part of the partnership, TransUnion’s rental screening solutions,ResidentScoreand ResidentIDproducts, are combined with the Funnel platform for a suite of reporting functionality and for improving collected data capabilities.

The partnership is encouraging since the multifamily industry has become tilted toward digital, contactless processes amid the pandemic, thereby increasing the need to improve user experience when it comes to digital leasing processes.

Maitri Johnson, vice president of TransUnion’s tenant and employment screening businesses, said, “Through this partnership, Funnel is streamlining the digital leasing process, providing renters with a better user experience, and making it easier for property managers to efficiently screen and approve applicants. We are thrilled to partner with Funnel and power their screening process.”

TransUnion’s gigantic treasure trove of data is its most distinguishing asset and also perhaps the biggest barrier to entry for competitors. Acquiring or building such data involves huge costs, making it extremely difficult for a new company to compete with TransUnion in this regard. This fortifies TransUnion's ability to sustain its competitive advantage and protect its market share.

TransUnion’s shares have gained 19.2% over the past year against 7.7% decline of the industry it belongs to.
