If you’re not familiar with HOA software solutions and the equivalent software packages for condos, now’s the time to check them out and see what they offer you. What you’ll find is that if you choose the right community association management software, you can automate manual drudgery and increase the thorough accuracy of your data-based processes. Across the board, these HOA software programs improve administrative operations, which in turn helps you enhance your interactions with community residents.
What does automation add to an administrative process? Actually, it’s more a matter of what community association management software subtracts from the equation: Wasted time and tedious effort.
Start with processes that require you to create an individualized response to every resident: An e-mail message, an invoice, a link to reset a password, and so on. Community association management software turns these types of tasks into a mere matter of a few clicks of the mouse or trackpad. Now you don’t need to build these responses one at a time.
Community association management software also helps you secure and protect your data and documents. Instead of attaching documents to e-mail messages to fulfill resident requests for copies of CCRs, community rules, articles of incorporation, and so on, now you can maintain an online document repository that provides easy downloads for the people you specify. Set individual access preferences for files and folders so you can control who accesses what. At the same time, centralize your member data and protect them so only residents see your member directory—and individual homeowners can control how much of their personally identifiable information they share with their neighbors.
