Sperlonga VS. BOOM

Searching for the best rent reporting solution on the market? Boom offers a true technological solution that is more affordable and faster to implement than other products on the market, including Sperlonga.


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.



Sperlonga’s shortcomings include pricing (3-4x more expensive), usability (spreadsheets, not software), and implementation timeline (months vs. weeks).

Why are property managers choosing Boom over Sperlonga?

Competitive Pricing

Sperlonga’s pricing is $2-$8 per renter, per month, depending on various add-ons. Boom’s pricing will always be less than their price range. The maximum amount Boom charges per renter, per month is $2—a price that will decrease with portfolio scale.

Software, Not Spreadsheets

Boom has powerful, bi-directional PMS integrations to streamline rent reporting while providing property managers with fast and seamless user experience. Sperlonga’s rent reporting solution, along with others in the industry, relies solely on spreadsheets—a process that is cumbersome, prone to errors, and lacking in data security.

Simpler, faster onboarding

One of the main reasons Sperlonga’s implementation can take up to two months (4-5x longer than Boom) is tri-bureau credentialing. Property managers will have to go through separate processes with each bureau. With Boom, the team will manage all bureau communications, property managers will go through credentialing once and get verified within days.

Modern Partner Platform

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.

Not entirely convinced?
You may be wondering …

Hasn’t Sperlonga been around for longer?

Yes, but when it comes to software, age doesn’t always correlate with product maturity. Unfortunately, Sperlonga’s rent reporting offering has not kept up with modern software solutions as they still rely on spreadsheets for reporting—an outdated process that is susceptible to data errors and security risks.

Sperlonga includes ID theft protection and credit score tracking—isn’t this better and more comprehensive?

Not necessarily, ID theft protection is often included with basic credit cards, and therefore doesn’t need to be included in a rent reporting offering. Additionally, Boom offers free credit score tracking for every user.

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!”

“Reporting rent payments with Boom’s partner portal is so fast and simple! It takes less than 5 minutes of my time each month, and APS is able to help improve credit outcomes with all 3 credit bureaus for our residents. This service will continue to be a core amenity for our residents.”
