Unified Payments powers IoT payments for VIP Systems' on-demand property management platform 

MIAMI, FL, Aug. 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Net Element, Inc. (NASDAQ: NETE) ("Net Element" or the "Company"), a global technology and value-added solutions group that supports electronic payments acceptance in a multichannel environment including point-of-sale (POS), e-commerce and mobile devices, today announces that its subsidiary, Unified Payments, utilizing its Netevia payments acceptance ecosystem, is entering the property management industry and continues its focus on enabling the Internet of Things ("IoT") payments through its partnership with VIP Systems

The property management industry is estimated to grow from $13 to $25 billion by 2025 according to Arcognizance.  Through its partnership with VIP Systems, Net Element aims to capitalize on this fast-growing industry by powering payments for IoT devices and on-demand services. The Lifestyle App, powered by VIP Systems, is designed to create a greater sense of community for residents and enhance their living experience.  Combining the power of IoT technology, Lifestyle incorporates several aspects of the resident experience into a single, all-in-one application that simplifies and consolidates the challenge of managing multiple apps.  Lifestyle gives residents the power to control their home automation systems (lights, climate, security and entry), use of amenities, schedule deliveries and submit service requests.  Property managers can communicate in real-time with their residents, respond faster to their needs and increase on-site amenities which help attract and retain residents.  The Lifestyle application and its robust ecosystem includes a marketplace made up of local businesses and generates additional revenues for property managers from the sale of goods and services while rewarding users for their loyalty.
