No matter how successful and well-run your property management company is, there is always room for improvement, innovation, and simplification in the pursuit of making your job easier. With ever-advancing technology, software to help automate your business is even tailored specifically to your industry too. Here are three ways that you can transform your property management company with automation.
Calls, interviews, showings, move-in are all an inconvenience to set up. Handling scheduling for so many different kinds of appointments across so many properties is a so time-consuming. But, using scheduling software and websites, you can hand the reins off and get back to keeping up with what’s already on your schedule rather than taking the time to add something new.
2. Rent Payments
Why is everyone so adamant about this kind of automation? It’s simple, really. Your properties house dozens if not hundreds of tenants, whom are all responsible for submitting payment to your property management company every month. So what’s more convenient for you and your tenants than an online system responsible for handing all these payments in one place, paper-free?
3. Unit Tours
Guiding potential tenants on in-person tours of vacant apartments is time-consuming, tiresome, and expensive if you pay your workers hourly. Skip all of that with virtual tours available to these prospective tenants. Self-showing software lets you take panoramic images to create virtual walking tours online so nobody needs to even leave their desk.
What Shouldn't You Automate?
With so many programs available for use, it’s easy to get swept up in the craze, but for some things - like customer service calls - don’t underestimate the importance of keeping things personal. So, while all of this is taken care of online, let Insta Answer’s virtual reception service handle all your customer service calls with a smile in our voices. Give us a call to get started.
