Foxen VS. BOOM

Interested in offering rent reporting to your residents? Boom is a pioneer for streamlined, tri-bureau reporting with a price point that’s a fraction of the cost of Foxen.


Boom is the first end-to-end software platform for property managers of any size to report rent payments to all three bureaus—Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion.



Despite being a well-known player in rent reporting, Esusu over promises and under delivers on usability, data accuracy, and tri-bureau reporting.



Foxen’s rent reporting service is a recent add on to their renters insurance offering. As a newcomer to the industry, their product is less comprehensive and more expensive than Boom’s.

Why are property managers choosing Boom over Foxen?

Tri-Bureau Reporting

Reporting to all three credit bureaus is important, and Boom, a furnisher to Experian, Equifax and TransUnion for years, delivers on this point. As a newer rent reporting service, Foxen only reports to two bureaus.

No-Nonsense Pricing

Boom’s pricing is straightforward—only pay for enrolled residents (or pass on the cost to them). Compared to Boom, Foxen charges 3x more per user per month—a significant difference that adds up quickly.

Direct PMS Integrations

Boom has the broadest and deepest integration coverage with property management systems. Once integrated, payment and verification workflows can be further simplified with automations—no manual spreadsheet uploads involved!

Full Visibility + Control

Boom’s Partner Platform gives property managers visibility into enrolled renters and ability to verify payments seamlessly. Boom’s Reporting Dashboard measures key impact metrics, like residents’ credit score changes, in real time.

Real Resident Impact

On average, Boom users that pay rent on time see a 28 point increase to their credit score in 2 weeks–a real impact that makes rent truly rewarding. Property managers can track their residents’ credit score changes via Boom’s real-time Impact Reporting Dashboard.

Not entirely convinced?
You may be wondering …

I’m already a Foxen user for their insurance product, why not just add this on?

Foxen’s rent reporting service, Rentistry, has a number of limitations, namely, they only offer full-file reporting (which isn’t a true benefit to residents), they only report rental payments once a month (Boom furnishes weekly), they only report to two bureaus (Boom reports to all three—Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion), and their price per user is 3X more than Boom. If you want a rent reporting service that is a true benefit and offers real impact for your residents, choose Boom.

Isn’t Foxen well known in the PropTech industry?

Yes, for their renters insurance. However, their rent reporting solution, Rentistry, was only launched in 2023. As a result, when comparing the two, Boom has a more comprehensive platform, a more experienced team, and a less expensive pricing structure.

Don’t just take our word for it.

“Boom's rent reporting has been a great addition to our offering at Burgan. And the engagement and responsiveness has been A+, from initial onboarding to ongoing support. It's clear that the Boom team is really invested in making sure this is successful for us. Strongly recommend Boom!”
