Dallas-based SaaS startup, Modern Message, today announced the completed expansion of its corporate headquarters to better accommodate the 120 percent employee growth the company experienced in 2015.
Modern Message pioneered the concept of advocacy marketing in the apartment industry through its platform Community Rewards. The platform gamifies the resident experience by rewarding users for creating content, referring friends, and sharing about their apartment communities through social media.
“We brought this concept to the multifamily industry in 2012, but last year was the year we hit our hockey stick moment,” said John Hinckley, Modern Message CEO. “The additional office space will allow us to increase productivity and creativity so that we can continue to deliver exceptional service to our clients.”
Since 2015, Modern Message experienced an increase of 400 percent in new clients, which included 36 percent of the top 50 management companies to sign up for the platform, and recurring revenue well in excess of $1 million. This flurry of business created a need for rapid expansion in employee growth.
“Scaling a business with the degree of growth we’ve experienced requires a very strong and dedicated team,” said Mike Ivey, Cofounder and Head of Product. “Expanding our office gives us the comfort and space we need to keep everyone excited and passionate about the mission here at Modern Message. We expect 2016 to be our best year yet!”
The new office space located on the 12th floor of Saint Paul Place in downtown Dallas (also known as the D Magazine building) includes additional offices, a conference room and a more modern look and feel to better reflect the company’s culture. Modern Message has already used the new space to host local events for the startup community, such as Ruby Brigade and client happy hours.
To celebrate the official launch of its office, Modern Message will be hosting a startup Happy Hour next Thursday, March 3. For more information on the event, please click here.
