Rose Associates Taps Innovative Technology To Boost Interest in East Harlem's Riverton Square
Posted On February 22, 2011
Taking a tip from the retail world, Rose Associates is now using QR (Quick Response) codes in its advertising of rental apartments at Riverton Square, a 1,230-unit apartment complex in East Harlem. Rose is among the first residential real estate marketers in the New York metropolitan area to employ this advertising tool to attract tech-savvy prospective tenants.
The two-dimensional barcodes can be scanned using the camera feature in a Smartphone. A QR reader that prospective tenants download enables the phone to recognize the scan, and brings them to a page on the Riverton Square website highlighting a list of available apartments.
“QR codes, which have proved successful in the retail arena, are a quick, easy way to connect print and online,” says Robert A. Scaglion, senior managing director of residential marketing at Rose Associates. “Rose has always been at the cutting edge of technology when it comes to marketing residential developments. The QR code allows real-time information associated with online to be incorporated into print.”
