Many property management companies are releasing their new mobile service, which gives you the ability to do everything you’ve always done on your computer on your mobile device! I know many are
thinking why would I want to use my mobile device to manage my properties? Actually, there are numerous reasons why you should consider going mobile with your property management business.
Here are a few reasons why using mobile service may be a good idea for you:
So you see, mobile access is not just a “fancy” term to use, but it can definitely provide many benefits to your property management business. Let me give you another reason how mobile access can add to your bottom line business numbers. Say for instance a service request comes in through the resident portal of your management software or you get a service call and the maintenance worker is out in the field at another unit. The service request can either be received or seen by the head of maintenance and then delegated, or maybe it’s just you, so you can see the request and call to schedule a time or go there, depending on your operations.
When the service worker is in the field, they will have the ability to grab tools to go to the site where they can then take pictures and send them back to the main office. Although pictures cannot automatically be attached, they can be attached if using an email client (such as Outlook Express, Gmail, Yahoo, etc.). Here, we see the beauty of the cloud when it comes to information sharing. You no longer have to go to the office to get a sheet of paper that would indicate the issue of a request. Everything can be done in the cloud or on the go because now all the information needed is all located in the mobile device.
I hope you now see the power of saving time when it comes to managing your property on your mobile service. Perhaps you can relate to a few reasons why you should take your business through the clouds or customize some of these ideas you read here within your own software or operations.
