PropertyWare - Excellent for Small and Medium size Businesses

2016-12-12

I have experience with Buildium, Yardi & Real Page.

Pros

* Very easy to use; very intuitive. I have not had to use the help menu or tutorials very often. * Customer Service has been excellent whenever I don't know what to do i the software, but know what I want to get done operationally.

Cons

* The mobile app is good, but not great. I would like to see more functionality and info look-up. * Initial set-up took longer than expected with their set-up team. Plan for at least 6 weeks when you pull the trigger.

Never had this with Buildium. I thought you had more features but they don’t work so it doesn’t help.

Terrible

Great Product/Great Price

2011-06-21

Coming from Propertyware which was 3X as expensive, the huge price difference makes up for the customization possibilities that Propertyware had.

Pros

Web based, simple tabs, good reporting, easy search features, price, rental apps/background checks.

Cons

Cannot customize anything, certain reports and portions of the public site cannot be edited and this would be a nice addition.

Outstanding option for your property management needs

2018-08-24

I have worked with both Propertyware and Appfolio and found that Buildium was a much better solution for the money.

Pros

This program is easy to use and the customer service is timely and especially helpful. There are so many features and reports that streamline the work, saving time and money.

Cons

Just a few of the training videos didn't go as far in depth of use as I would have liked - however they customer service makes up for this in being able to help anytime I need. Would like the option to text multiple residents at once.

Truly a fabulous product!

2011-06-17

It far and away surpasses all of the competition we have tried such as PropertyWare (too many unused features and a price tag that will make you choke), Yardi (customer service is like trying to make the mean girl in 4th grade both nice and helpful - just give it up) or just plain, old QuickBooks modified for our business (much more complex and didn't track Work Orders).

Pros

--I love just about all of the features of Buildium. The best is that the program offers me enough bells and whistles that it does everything I want but not so many that i have to pay for a bunch of things my staff won't use. --The 24/7 availability and ease of navigation for owners has swayed clients to us from our competition! --The real and actual desire by the Buildium team to grow the product in a way that is beneficial to its customers is outstanding. --The ease of use for my staff and myself.

Cons

--There are cons?
