Available in the Apple App Store?, the new application keeps inspection teams in the field for increased productivity
(March 11, 2013) — Propertyware, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of RealPage, Inc. (NASDAQ: RP), today announced the launch of Propertyware Inspections, a new desktop and mobile solution that automates the inspection workflow process for rental housing clients, saving time and increasing productivity both in the office and in the field.
As the industry leader of on-demand software (Software-as-a-Service) and software-enabled services to the rental housing industry, RealPage provides product solutions to apartment communities and single-family rentals across the United States.
Available for single-family and low-density rental housing units, the new Propertyware application automates the inspection workflow process by centralizing all inspection documentation into one location, accessible from both a desktop and in the field with an iPhone® or iPad®. Both the desktop and mobile versions of Inspections greatly reduce the amount of time spent scheduling, tracking and producing inspection reports. Also, any expenses resulting from tenant-caused damage can be documented, tracked and then applied to the tenant ledger prior to move out, allowing property managers the ability to recover expenses.
While in the field, inspection teams can use the mobile app to add unlimited photos and notes to all inspection items. For added flexibility and quicker response times, teams can view and schedule new inspections via the mobile app and even obtain directions to the properties. The mobile app is designed to work with or without an Internet connection and is fully integrated with Propertyware. As inspection teams enter the data on their mobile devices, it syncs into the Propertyware record, eliminating paper forms and duplicate data entry. Once the inspection syncs to Propertyware, it generates real-time alerts and provides an efficient way to generate work orders directly from the inspection record.
“The seamless integration of the mobile app with Propertyware results in significant time savings and increased accuracy of data,” says Erik Mall, general manager of Propertyware. “With just a click, owners can now access a comprehensive inspection history on the property and lease. They can be confident they have accurate information and a complete view of the inspection process.”
“We have always handwritten our inspection reports and saved photos separately. The inspector’s penmanship was often an issue,” says David Holt, CPM, MPM, president, R.P. Management, CRMC. “With Propertyware Inspections, our reports are clean, clear and photos are integrated right in, saving us a lot of time.”
Propertyware Inspections is currently available in the Apple App Store? for download by Propertyware Inspections customers and does require a Propertyware subscription. Propertyware clients can download the app at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/inspections-by-properytware/id572707828?ls=1&mt=8.
