Property Management Software for Sage - Letting Agent edition!
Letting agents have a heavy workload making it difficult at times to provide a service that landlords and tenants expect. Streamline your to-do list with property management software for letting agents and you will have more hours available to focus on your portfolio and growing your business.
Letting Agents come in all shapes and sizes. Landlord Manager has the ability to cater for, and simplify the work required for portfolios that include residential and commercial properties, student accommodation and HMOs.
Landlord Manager for Sage is a letting agent software solution with a difference. The system includes all the tools to manage your portfolio but it also integrates with Sage, making it easier to work more cost-effectively and monitor cash flow.
With a system in place users will find their business running more efficiently. The office diary will help to organise the way staff work, this will in-turn save time which can be reinvested in more profitable areas of your company.
When time is used more wisely and your budget is put to better use it won’t be long before the monthly subscription of £125 (+VAT) pays for itself. Landlord Manager for Sage not only benefits your business but your landlords and tenants will be happier too when you are able to provide a better service.
The CRM in Landlord Manager for Sage is the glue that will stick all the areas of your business together. With databases in the system included to log and record details of the properties, tenants, applicants and suppliers which link together making it is easy to monitor your portfolio efficiently.
Unfortunately, being a letting agent isn’t just about properties and the people who live in them. Like any business, the accounts need to be managed and maintained as much as the properties in your portfolio, this doesn’t come easy for letting agents.
Landlord Manager offers something that no other letting agent software solution does, it integrates seamlessly with Sage. This unique feature brings many benefits as it minimises data entry as any financial information entered into the software feeds directly to Sage, a format over 90% of accountants recognise. It also offers profit and loss reporting against properties to ensure that they are being managed as economically as possible. The payment process can also be sped up with its links to SagePay and GoCardless.
One challenge letting agents struggle with is managing office and client accounting. Collecting rent and paying landlords is harder than you would hope when money has to be transferred with management fees. There is no need to log in-and-out of accounts with Landlord Manager as the whole process can be done in one solution, fees and charges can be added automatically saving time and headaches.
Filling Your Vacancies
If there are vacant properties in your portfolio then your landlords might lose confidence in the service you provide and look elsewhere. Marketing can be costly and time consuming but it doesn’t have to be with the tools provided in Landlord Management for Sage.
- Window Cards – Use the information from the property records and window card templates to advertise the vacancies in your branch
- Property Matching – Log contact details and requirements in the applicant centre so that you can match them when a suitable vacancy becomes available. No need to spend money on marketing
- Portal Feed – Upload your vacant properties to Rightmove, Zoopla, OnTheMarket, Gumtree and StuRents with just ‘one-click’ using data from the property records
- Web Feed (additional module) – Upload your vacant properties to your website using data from the property records
Many landlords choose their letting agent on the services they provide. Offering property management services can be a great way of generating income when done correctly.
Work orders can be easily monitored, budgeted and invoiced in the software to ensure that they are completed on time and to the standard you expect. When you find tradesmen who you can trust you can log their details in the supplier centre so that you won’t need to flick through the phone book next time a tenant requests a maintenance job.
Do you spend a lot of time working out of office? Although Landlord Manager is a desktop-based solution it can be hosted in the cloud so that you can view property information during viewings or working during your commute or from home.
Use your time more flexible and get more work done.
When a system is implemented to streamline your workload and minimise data entry, you will see time used more efficiently and productivity levels are increased. Improving the service you provide will help retain your landlords and tenants as well as find new customers and business growth.
