THE PROBLEMS WE SOLVE
If you want help solving any of these problems, you are on the right website:
- Metrics are not instantly visible
- It is too time consuming to manually calculate and display the key performance indicators (KPI)
- Having to export data into Excel and then produce reports
- Inability to visualize trends and outliers in charts
- Not having a good understanding of key metrics such as delinquency, collections, occupancy, market rent etc.
- Having to log into the property management system in order to view performance metrics
- Valuable data is stored complicated spreadsheets, thereby creating risk
- Data is spread across multiple systems so it is difficult to look at a combined picture in a single report
- Month-end close takes too long, is tedious, and too dependent on PDF reports and Excel files
