(March 5, 2008) – RealPage, Inc., a leading provider of on-demand software and services to the multifamily industry, today announced that it has successfully launched an innovative barcode scanning feature for clients using its OneSite© property management and OneSite Document Management systems.
OneSite Document Management provides electronic scanning and storage of documents and forms associated with a property management company’s business processes and procedures. The addition of the barcode functionality significantly enhances the ability to scan documents into the system, fulfilling an essential role in automating the scan-and-file process, typically a major bottleneck for properties dealing with copious amounts of paper.
“The ability to assign barcodes to individual invoice records in OneSite Purchasing enables property management companies to quickly import large quantities of paper invoices into the system,” said Clark Willey, vice president of product development for RealPage. “Property managers will notice significant time savings and error reduction.”
The system enables users to generate cover sheets containing barcodes or barcode labels that contain identification information for resident documents or invoice records in the system. These barcodes can then be associated with the signed lease documents or paper invoices prior to scanning back into the system. This allows users to bulk scan documents directly into OneSite Document Management where, based on the information read from the barcode, the electronic images are automatically routed and filed in association with the record in the system.
“The barcode functionality offers significant time savings for us when scanning stacks of invoices into Document Management,” said Allyson Andrews of Carter Haston. “I was able to scan over 100 invoices into the system with only a few clicks. I wish everything I do at work was this simple!”
The barcode feature also greatly enhances the existing “packet” process. Packets allow users to group together documents related to specific business processes, such as move-ins, move-outs, renewals and recertifications. This new functionality gives users the ability to quickly generate and print barcodes for each document required in a packet, allowing the user to use the barcodes as a visual checklist prior to scanning the documents into the system.
