This startup wants to make deliveries less stressful for apartment dwellers

The e-commerce explosion has flooded apartment buildings with packages,” Patton said. “I saw what a pain it was for the property managers, and that was an eye-opening moment for me.”

Now, Patton says, he has a solution. His startup, Fetch, collects the parcels mailed to apartments at off-site warehouses and then delivers them to residents at a scheduled time.

Reducing operating costs has always been a top priority for property managers and building operators. A proven way to do this is to focus on resident retention. A survey by Avail showed that when residents renew their leases, landlords can save up to $2,500 that would otherwise be allocated toward finding new renters and making updates to units for rent.
"We needed a package management solution that first and foremost improves the resident experience, and also lifts package responsibilities from our team members' shoulders," said Mark-Taylor President John Carlson. "Fetch is the best solution to support our team members while offering residents package delivery service catered to their personal schedules and needs. At Mark-Taylor, we are excited to experience the unique benefits that Fetch will bring to our communities."
