From accounting to maintenance, and everything in between, here are the best mobile apps for property managers in 2019.
It's no doubt that time is one of the hardest things to manage as a property manager or an owner. Instead of resolving complexities and keeping track of all details on your own, leveraging modern technology will not only save time and resources, but also provide a better experience for residents and staff alike.
Without further ado, here are the top property management software apps in 2019 that will provide you and your property staff with the flexibility and solutions you need to continue exceeding resident expectations.
Rental Listing Apps 🏠
It all starts with your listing. Platforms and apps such as Zillow, Trulia, Apartments.com, and Landlordy all offer a comprehensive database where you can list and manage all your properties and communicate with prospects more effectively. These apartment listing platforms use innovative technology to provide deep insights and connect
optimal tenants to property owners and managers.
Accounting & Finance Apps 💸
Instead of keeping track of all transactions and posting them to your ledger manually, you can rely on these #fintech apps to manage everything in a single platform with ease. Apps such as Buildium, Rent Manager, and PropertyMe streamline financials with integrated accounting to manage banking, invoices, bulk disbursements, and more to support property manager needs. Although these apps are primarily focused on your accounting needs, they offer plenty of other features as well.
Security Apps 🔐
Take advantage of modern technology to ensure that your tenants and their valuables are safe and sound. Apps like Frontsteps provide security solutions with visitor management, access control, and telephone entry for a complete peace of mind. Meanwhile, apps such as Amazon Key allow keyless and secure entry that allows for convenient and safe delivery of packages.
Operations Management Apps 🗂
Platforms such as Mobile Doorman allow for customized, mobile apps to communicate with residents. The platform is also able to integrate with other property management software to keep things simple. Other apps include Appfolio, Propertyware, Entrata, Yardi, and ManageCasa, which offer a little bit of everything. You can attract optimal tenants, automate certain processes, gain important insights and business metrics, track maintenance, communicate with residents, owners, and vendors, and more. These apps provide all you need to keep everything running smoothly, all in one place.
Amenity Apps ✨
Today’s best software doesn’t just stop there -- you can innovate your amenities, too. From the perfect modern all-in-one cloud printer in your productivity / co-working center, to smart home add-ons from the likes of August, Nest, and Igor, these software companies will take a thing or two off your plate so you can continue to focus on other management needs. Amenity aggregators such as Bixby and Hello Alfred will make using amenities convenient on your residents’ side as well.
Managing a property via software combines technology and service to produce amazing results in 2019. Not only will these automations and organizational tools save you time and energy, but property staff will also be more closely connected with residents and improve ROI and retention over time.
