Roommates

About
the Customer

The company provides their customers with the ability to find potential roommates, whether they have a room, are looking for a vacant room or want to go in with someone to search for a new apartment. A proprietary algorithm will match the user personality, lifestyle and preferences with other roommate prospects and then will display personalized best matches.
