Livable Announces Partnership with the Rental Housing Association

of Southern Alameda County to Deliver Utility Savings to

Properties Sharing Consumption


The partnership leverages Livable’s Utility Billing Platform to drive tenant financial
accountability for fair communal consumption, while promoting conservation.
San Francisco and Hayward , October 1, 2018 - Livable , the leading residential and commercial
real estate Utility Billing Platform, announced a new partnership with the Rental Housing
Association of Southern Alameda County to further drive responsible tenant utility
consumption. Livable’s platform employs a Ratio Utility Billing System (RUBS) that fairly divides
utility costs such as waste, sewage, water, gas and electricity amongst tenants, based on
occupancy, square footage, or some combination of both. The full-service property manager
portal delivers immediate utility recovery in one convenient location for real estate portfolios of
any size, whether that be 2 units or 2,000. Utilizing Livable’s utility solutions and services costs
nothing to setup, requires no minimum, and applies a transparent low monthly flat fee per unit


“The Rental Housing Association of Southern Alameda County is happy and proud to announce
our new partnership with Livable in order to deliver utility billing solutions, including Ratio
Utility Billing Systems (RUBS), to our membership,” said Caryl Mahar, The Association's
Executive Director. “Not only does collecting for utilities boost the housing provider’s bottom
line, but it makes the residents more accountable and more likely to reduce their consumption.
The fact that Livable, unlike other companies, includes this service to small property sizes
should be attractive to many of our owners.”


Livable’s Utility Billing Platform offers housing providers a central location to aggregate utility
cost and recovery data. The dashboard displays visual graphs and calculators that make it easier
and faster to recognize and transform utilities data into performance improvements. Using a
history of tenant payment performance tracked in the platform, the user is able to unlock
immediate value by identifying operational patterns and outliers. The dashboard can also be
tailored to report alerts for potential leaks or track utility recovery amounts. With no
constraints on size, Livable can meet the distinct needs of each housing provider . The tools
provide transparent data to help housing providers educate tenants of their consumption
habits, allocate financial responsibility accordingly and tenants are persuaded to curb
exorbitant usage habits. Together, you and your residents can monitor utility allocations and
ultimately see how saving resources saves money.


“Mitigating utility costs during times of drought or other energy constraints in states like
California is a reality that places the responsibility on us all to conserve,” said Daniel Sharabi,
CEO of Livable. “Our fast-to-deploy and easy-to-use suite of cloud services combined with the
expertise of the Rental Housing Association of Southern Alameda County will deliver
cutting-edge analytics and empower decisions that transform data into valuable insights and
