If you are a property manager looking after an extensive portfolio you probably find that the processes involved can often be work-intensive and unpredictable. With help from service charge software you can provide a more cost-efficient service for your clients.
Property management can be a limitless service but dealing with day-to-day requests and those unexpected emergencies need to be completed to the same high standard. Whether you look after blocks of flats, groups of properties or small commercial units your clients expect their requests to be dealt with promptly, winning clients in the first place involves work that isn’t as easy as it sounds but it could be.

As a property/block manager, your clients are leaseholders. They expect a maintenance service which is covered in the budget which will be delivered on your initial budget. Calculating that budget comes with many variables, every property has its differences, you may have many years’ experience allowing you to offer a guide price but would a climate commit to your service on a guide price?

Probably not but with the aid of service charge software you have the tools to deliver an accurate budget that comes with impressive and detailed graphs that explain where their budget goes. Once you have that contract your clients will expect regular reports and updates on their budget then once the year is over any money left will either be equally refunded or put forward for the following term.

It sounds like a lot of work, it can be. It can also be time-consuming and challenging but with a solution which minimises the administrative work it is possible to provide a more service to your clients and use that additional time to win more business or grow yours.
