10 reasons why property managers love PropertyMe

PropertyMe was born in the cloud in 2013 to help property managers reduce add-ons, unchain from their desks and automate repetitive tasks for the first time ever.

Today, PropertyMe is Australia’s most loved cloud property management software and assists the real estate industry in processing more than $1 billion every month.

Here are just 10 reasons why property managers love PropertyMe.

1. Increase efficiency with automated workflows

There are many benefits to cloud-based software compared to server-based software. One of which is the ability to automate repetitive tasks and processes. These include data backups, software updates and processes like end of month, communications, inspection planning, arrears, maintenance and bill management.

For example, PropertyMe automatically identifies the owners and suppliers due for disbursement on a daily basis. With the click of a button, PropertyMe:

  1. Disburses funds to selected owners and suppliers
  2. Automatically generates messages with attached statements and bills
  3. Updates the relevant Owner Access pages

What would have taken hours on a server-based system can now be completed in minutes using PropertyMe. This has saved some businesses up to 120 hours a month, allowing them to focus on more important matters like nurturing relationships and growing their rent roll.

2. User-centred design

Property managers love PropertyMe for its ease of learning and use. This has allowed agencies to decrease the time and costs outlayed for team training and has drastically reduced the time required to complete day-to-day tasks.

To ensure customer centricity, when designing new features and workflows, we put ourselves in the shoes of our customers and ask three questions:

  1. Is it simple to use?
  2. Does it save time?
  3. Does it solve a genuine problem?

PropertyMe Design Pillars

Thereafter, we apply the Design Thinking Process—a structured way to approach design problems and create great solutions, validated by users.

Our first step is to empathise with our customers and understand their needs, wants and objectives. We draw insights from our community and the Feature Requests section of the Knowledge Base. Next, we define the problem from the user’s point of view before brainstorming and selecting the best ideas to move forward with.

Subsequently, we prototype, test and iterate to ensure features are always validated by users. Users can join the Test Program to experience early access to beta features. Any feedback will help us shape new features and workflows within PropertyMe.

3. Mitigate human error and compliance risk

Traditionally, property management is riddled with paperwork and manual data entry. This can lead to data entry error, discrepancies due to unclear formatting, loss of revenue and slow turnaround times.

PropertyMe mitigates these risks by eliminating manual data entry. Instead of keying in bill data, simply upload bills and PropertyMe will do the data entry for you. Instead of keying in trust account transactions, import a bank file or use Bank Feeds to automatically pull your bank transaction data directly into PropertyMe for easy reconciliation.

Plus, all audit reports and statements are stored in PropertyMe, creating a clean digital paper trail for your auditor to follow. Ace your trust account audit and review portfolio activity as needed.

Meanwhile, Reminders helps you stay compliant with colourful warning alerts. Easily keep track of smoke alarm and pool compliance as well as more general tasks like knowing when your owner’s landlord insurance is expiring.

4. Constant evolution and innovation

Innovation is an ongoing process and those who choose to remain static will only be surpassed by their competitors who are agile and forward-thinking. That’s why the PropertyMe team lives and breathes innovation—we believe that there is always a better way to do things.

These features and enhancements have helped thousands of real estate businesses increase their efficiency, differentiate their service offerings and boost revenues. It has also improved team retention, reduced property management stress and positively impacted company culture.

At PropertyMe, we believe that no detail is too small when it comes to developing an intuitive and innovative software that truly puts the user at the centre of its design.

A great example of this is the messages that appear on the dashboard widgets once the property manager has completed the tasks. These messages are designed to delight customers with an unexpected injection of positivity and humour.
