Company Overview

PointCentral, a subsidiary of Alarm.com, is the leading provider of rental property automation for short-term rental and multifamily property managers. Its platform monitors and controls smart home technology across all properties in their inventory over a secure and reliable cellular network – increasing property awareness, reducing operational costs, and improving guest and resident satisfaction. The PointCentral solutions include Community Access, HVAC Management, Self-Guided Tours, Smart Home Management, and Water Management.


The Challenge

Abode Worldwide first started working with PointCentral on its short-term rental solution in January 2021. Our mission was to raise PointCentral’s reputation in the traditional vacation rental and wider short-term rental sectors through trade media relations, speaking opportunities, inbound content, and social media.

Within four months, we won the account to manage PointCentral’s multifamily side of the business too. Working across both the short-term rental and multifamily sectors required creating specific strategies and campaigns to meet the challenges of both target audiences, along with expert industry insight in each sector.

“We liked the team. We liked the work they produce. It just made sense, to give them a shot and they knocked it out of the park. On a monthly basis, we’re reaching 10,000 plus people in any given industry publication and that’s incredibly valuable.”
