(May 14, 2015) — Propertyware, a wholly owned subsidiary of RealPage, Inc. (NASDAQ: RP) and the industry leader in property management solutions for single-family and low-density rental units, introduces Propertyware Maintenance Plus, a solution that manages and tracks inspections, service requests and vendor activity from start to finish. Propertyware Maintenance Plus adds mobility and collaboration to the maintenance process, while optimizing revenue and increasing productivity by as much as 50 percent, ultimately resulting in higher client satisfaction, lower operating costs and more profitability.
The new solution helps property managers handle up as much as 67 percent more service requests without adding staff. Recognizing this increased efficiency, Michael Pelts, founder and partner of Lubin Property Management commented, “Propertyware Maintenance Plus revolutionized our maintenance department. We are now able to manage twice the amount of properties with the same staff, while streamlining our billing procedures to our clients and payment procedures to our vendors. And the enhancements keep coming. This tool is a phenomenal addition to the Propertyware software.”
Whether integrated with the Propertyware system or as a standalone product, Propertyware Maintenance Plus delivers a variety of unique features. This diversity and flexibility enables users to choose the approach and options that work best for their business.
Simple, Efficient and Intuitive Property Inspections
- Proprietary Camera Mode: Cut inspection time in half by using camera mode which allows you to snap pictures, tag them with the room identifier and condition, and then add notes as you walk through the inspection.
- Move-in/Move-Out Comparison Reports: Hold tenants accountable for the property’s condition with side-by-side comparison reports of move-in and move-out inspections.
- Shareable, Personalized Reporting: Customize how inspection report data is organized and easily share the report online with owners, tenants and others.
- Time-Sensitive Move-In Reports: Send tenants a time-sensitive link and allow them to fill out their move-in condition report online.
Dispatch Vendors and Manage Service Requests in Real-Time
- Real-time Vendor Tracking: Dispatch work to vendors and get progress updates, all in real-time, including time-tracking, location, comments and pictures.
- Collaborate with Vendors Online: Receive notifications anytime a vendor takes action on maintenance tasks. Work with third-party vendors through a unique portal where you can upload invoices and check the status of pending payments—decreasing invoice processing time by up to 42 percent.
- Personalized Company Invoices: Easily produce customized company invoices for owners.
With the launch of Propertyware Maintenance Plus, property managers have real-time visibility into their maintenance work flow, no longer require multiple systems to manage different maintenance activities, and are freed from the manual paper process for managing job bids and vendor invoices. This new tool—also available for iOs™ and Android™ devices—provides real-time visibility into work order tracking, vendor management, technician dispatch, job bids, time spent, materials consumption calculations, and more.
“We developed Propertyware Maintenance Plus to solve all your maintenance problems in a quick, easy and intuitive manner.
