As a property manager, it’s your job to keep your tenants happy. The last thing you want is for them to return after their lease runs out and tell you that they’ve decided to move out early because they’re dissatisfied with your service.
Of course, there are plenty of tools out there designed specifically to help landlords and property managers manage their properties more efficiently
—from accounting software that tracks all your income and expenses down to the minute detail so you can stay on top of things financially (and make sure you don’t lose money) to HVAC systems that can help keep energy costs low while keeping tenants happy with warm homes during those chilly winter months.
There’s one software solution that really stands out: Dwelingo is an easy-to-use platform designed specifically for apartment managers who need help managing their properties more efficiently.
And as we’ll discuss below, Dwelingo has some features that could save weekly hours by automating parts of your tenant management process.
Stop collecting paper rent checks.
Out of all the benefits of using Dwelingo, this one is our favorite. With so much time spent collecting rent checks, you may think finding an alternative is impossible.
There’s no more sending checks through snail mail or having to run around looking for lost rent checks.
Can Help You Collect Rent Online
Dwellingo’s tenant management software will help you collect rent online. No more checks to manage, deposit, write or keep track of. No more reviews to lose and throw away.
Easily communicate with tenants.
Tenant communication is vital, and Dwelingo makes it easy to send messages. You can send emails and text messages directly from the app or post them to social media.
Automate lease renewal reminders
We love how Dwelingo’s tenant management software automates lease renewal reminders.
-This is a great time to remind your tenants that their lease is expiring soon, and they need to renew before you have to start the process all over again, which can be very time-consuming and costly.
Automatically sending out renewal notices will help you avoid these issues, ensuring your property stays on track with its revenue goals while also ensuring that you’re not losing money because of incomplete or missing information in your database.
Manages Tenants Data
In Dwelingo, tenant data is stored in one place and accessible anywhere. -This means you can manage your tenants’ data online, whether at home or on the go.
Unlike other tenant management software, Dwelingo is secure and organized so that all your records are easily accessible.
Keep track of all your maintenance requests in one place
Once you’ve signed up for Dwelingo, you can quickly request maintenance and track the status of your requests.
- Request maintenance: Create a new request by entering the details of what needs to be done at your property. You can also add photos and videos from your phone or computer.
- Track maintenance requests: Once you submit a request, it will be added to our dashboard, where you can track its progress through each completion stage.
You’ll also receive an email notification when we update the status of your request (or if there is any other information we feel is relevant).
- Track maintenance requests by tenant: There are two ways to view all pending tenant-related issues at once
—by property or by type—and these categories can be filtered by date range as well as status (open vs. closed).
- Track maintenance requests by property: This view allows users who manage multiple properties within their portfolio to see how many outstanding issues exist on each site without having first select “tenant” as the filter category list above;
however, since this list contains both open/closed items together in one column, there may not always be easy-to-read groupings unless they have been manually sorted out beforehand via another method such as sorting based on date range only instead which would then allow looking back through time while still seeing exactly what has changed recently versus everything else that might appear older yet still requires action attention due simply because there was no specific way prior available before now.
Automate your accounting with built-in integrations
The built-in accounting integrations in Dwelingo will help you automate your financial statements, giving you greater visibility into your business and removing the need to update spreadsheets manually. With these integrations, data flows seamlessly between all of your systems.
-This means that any changes made in one system are automatically reflected in the others, so there are no manual updates required.
Dwelingo has integrations with the most popular accounting software.
The developer platform allows us to add new integrations as we add new features quickly.
E-signatures In Documents
E-signatures help you save time and money because they streamline the paperwork process.
- They’re legally binding, so they eliminate the need for you to print and scan documents that your clients must sign.
- E-signatures are secure because they’re encrypted with SSL encryption technology, which means that no one can see the content of a file being e-signed except those involved in it (you and your clients).
- And don’t worry about the setup: signing documents with Dwelingo is easy! All you have to do is download an app for iOS or Android devices, create an account on Dwelingo’s website, then link all of your devices together so that when someone sends you a document through Dwelingo’s website or mobile app, their signature will appear automatically when it reaches either device connected to your account.
-This saves time spent waiting around for signatures from clients who may not be able to make it into your office due to busy schedules or other commitments
Save hours each week by automating your tenant management process.
If you are a property manager, you know your time is valuable. You have enough to do and do not need to waste hours on tedious tasks that can easily be automated.
Automating the tenant management process will save weekly hours for both landlords and property managers.
A single example of how automation can save time is by using Dwelingo’s online portal for rent collection and payment tracking.
Instead of writing checks or sending money orders, tenants can simply log in from their computers or mobile devices to make payments on their own without having to wait in line at the post office or bank.
-This means less time spent waiting around and more time doing other productive things like inspecting properties or meeting with potential new clients.
Dwelingo also has many other features that help automate your daily tasks as a landlord, including online lease signing with tenant signatures captured electronically, automatic reporting via email/text message notifications when something important happens (such as an inspection result being entered), receiving email alerts when a tenant applies for another apartment listing, so they don’t fill out multiple applications at once, etc.).
We hope this article has given you a better idea of how you can use Dwelingo to automate your management process and save time every day.
