Your property management software from Rentec Direct is now fully integrated with PetScreening, a first-of-its-kind screening platform that empowers property managers to outsource their pet risk assessment and assistance animal validation processes, so you can take the guesswork (and liability) out of screening pets.

PetScreening and Rentec Direct Integration
With Rentec Direct’s new PetScreening integration, you can automatically direct your rental applicants to complete their pet screen when they are finished completing their online rental application.
