Announcement: New Rental Management Software

Big News! Beginning January 2016, First Rate Property Management will begin using the cloud-based accounting and property-management software, Rent Manager. With Rent Manager, we will have a consolidated suite of software solutions for managing the needs of properties, tenancy, owners, vendors and taxation reporting. For detailed overviews of the Rent Manager software products, please visit the Rent Manager website. Two particularly helpful pages for a quick look at the software application are Rent Manager Product Overview and Rent Manager Features.

Rent Manager's powerful accounting system is at the core of its functionality for servicing the needs of all our clients. From there, the Rent Manager software expands to multiple additional software applications and hardware integrations. Our tenants will still be able to pay rent online, and now will also be able to access tenant account statements and other correspondence from FRPM, all online through an online tenant portal. Owners will likewise retain access to online statements, reports and correspondence, as in the past, but will now also be able to initiate certain type of financial transactions online, such as owner property contributions. Owners will also be pleased to know that the Rent Manager software comes pre-built and customizable with numerous tools that FRPM will develop for advancing property marketing, advertising and tenant selection. We will literally be on the cutting-edge of software technology for getting owners' properties occupied quickly and with the best possible tenants. We will also be utilizing the Rent Manager Work Order system, for handling property maintenance work and assisting our vendors and contractors with tools and workflows for smooth, streamlined service calls and property turn-over processes.

This is an exciting transition for both First Rate Property Management and all of our tenant, owner and vendor stakeholders. We anticipate a limited amount of challenge initially, such as staff training and re-developing several of the forms and reports that we have used in the past and to which our clients have become accustomed to receiving each month. Rest assured, our top priority in switching to the Rent Manager software is not to have shiny, new windows on our computer screens, but is to maintain and improve on delivery of the first-rate service that we take great pride in and, above all else, that our tenants, owners and vendors expect and deserve. We are committed to being personally available every step of the way, for all these folks, to make the transition one which not only improves the efficiency of our systems, but improves everyone's bottom line.

We will post more details on the transition, before and after January 1, 2016, and will be keeping you up-to-speed via postal notices as well. Hoorah for new and better software for our property management needs, and yours!
