Finding the right property management software for you

Property management companies come in all shapes and sizes of course. That’s a big part of the reason there is no one single answer to which property management software is the best. If you’re managing a large portfolio of industrial or office-oriented commercial space, your needs are different than if you manage a small set of single-family residences. Still, there are many common challenges. No matter your needs, software solutions are being designed to reinforce operating best practices and help you run your company more profitably.

What types of business challenges do property management software options address? Another way to ask that might be: What types of challenges do you have? The reality is that where there exists a need, the software market has responded with sophisticated, software-based solutions. There are property management solutions that address back-end accounting, payment processing, investment management, tenant tracking, work orders, complex reporting, and beyond.

Full-spectrum property management functionality

Let’s take a closer look at some of the most important capabilities provided in property management software programs:

  • Accounting. Strong accounting functionality provides the ability to implement efficient bookkeeping workflows, while providing the foundation to make informed, data-driven financial decisions. Accounting features enhance your ability to handle check writing, management of receivables and collections, bank reconciliations, top level financial reporting, and fixed asset depreciation.
  • Work order management. The upkeep of facilities is key to both tenant satisfaction, as well as attracting new residents and potential investors. Work orders provide a means to manage service work, preventative maintenance, and unit prep work. Work order management systems can help you coordinate work you perform with your own staff, in addition to work you subcontract to outside vendors. Scheduling features optimize availability of labor and equipment to make sure work is being performed as efficiently as possible. Additionally, more and more programs are providing mobile access to allow field access for service workers.
  • Rent collection. Collecting on rent in a timely manner is one of the main challenges facing your property management company. The quicker and more completely you can receive tenant payment, the better positioned you are to put that cash to work for you. Great strides have been made in the rent collection tools available to property managers. Many solutions offer online payment portals and the ability to establish electronic (ACH) payments. Receivables and rent collection tools also offer features designed to make taking in fees and security deposits more manageable.
  • Property tracking. One of the key reporting dimensions for property managers is the ability to track information on a property or unit basis. This is generally an aspect of property management software systems that is unique to the industry. With the right system you can track property assets and value, vacancies, tenant histories, property descriptions, previous improvements and work, as well as ownership and investment information.
  • Tenant management. Every property management company is looking for tenants who make prompt payment and ideally stay tenants for the long-term. A tenant management module provides a central repository for tracking tenant information and optimizing the relationship. Tenant management solutions allow you to database tenant data including contact info, payment and service history, renewals, rent increase schedules, and beyond. Additionally, many programs integrate tenant screening functionality to help you put existing credit data and criminal histories to work in helping you find desirable tenants.
  • Investment management. Taking on new ownership interests and investors can dramatically accelerate the growth of your property management business. The ability to track and report on ownership and investment data is a major business challenge though. Investment management modules allow you to track investments, handle disbursements, and even identify new investors. Online owner portals are becoming increasingly popular as a way to efficiently provide owners a snapshot view of their investment data.
  • Prospect tracking. Attracting new clientele is as important to property managers as to any business. Prospect tracking systems allow you to automate much of the work related to finding new tenants including databasing contact info, posting vacancy ads, scheduling showings, and coordinating with interested potential tenants.

Taking the next steps

Robust property management solutions are becoming increasingly more accessible. Many features, which just a few years ago were reserved for only the most sophisticated, enterprise solutions, are now available to property management businesses of all sizes and software budgets. Software providers are leveraging tools like business intelligence dashboards, web portals, automation features, improved system integration, customizable alerts, and mobile access to help property managers run their business more efficiently.
