    Pros
    We scheduled a call and within the first five minutes he was helping true up a couple of items. He was great and provided great value.
    Customer Support is excellent. There is great help on the Chat window and when that isn't available, phone support is great.
    You are provided with more information at the best price available in the market today. What I like the best is not only the information that is provided, but the customer service.
    Cons
    The only downside I have found with this software is its inability to integrate with QuickBooks.
    Strictly operator error, I forget my log in from time to time. Seriously, I haven't found anything I'm unhappy with.
    That company did a terrible job and forced us to find a solution to be able to handle the job on our own.

    Rentec Direct great value for the price and functionality

    Reviewed 7 years ago

    I am a small startup (still getting my systems in place and don't have any other owners yet) in Montana. I researched Rentec Direct, Buildium, Rent Manager and Appfolio. One of my main concerns was taking on a monthly financial commitment when so young as a company. When all was said and done, I really appreciated that RD was created by a property manager who saw a need for this niche in 2007. The...

    Pros

    Reasonable price for a small startup, easy to learn, good accounting piece, website is included, customer service is very responsive to inquiries.

    Cons

    On-line application limited to 5 custom fields, included website could use a bit more functionality, nothing more at this time.

    Simple and Easy

    Reviewed 6 years ago

    If it wasn't so much work and if payments from tenants processed quicker, I would switch back. I preferred the ease and simplicity of Rentec over AppFolio which I am using now.

    Pros

    Very user friendly No learning curve Reports are easy to read Information is formatted in a way that most would understand Price is great and this is good for those with only a couple rentals or if you have 100's

    Cons

    When I used this product, it didn't offer all the bells and whistles that others did like an app for your phone The ACH process was too slow when I used it and it could take too many days to get money and send money

    Vendor response

    We appreciate you singing our praises, Michelle, and letting us know what was important to you. Back in 2017, we increased transaction processing speeds, rolled out mobile apps and a whole host of other slick features. We're always working to on new ways to to help our clients be more efficient. Wishing you great success!

    Not very user friendly software

    Reviewed 7 years ago

    I have recommended this software to someone, but that was before I found Buildium.

    Pros

    Colorful buttons lead you along. Lots of options to enter contact information, ie address, phone number and email. Nice to be able to email work orders directly to the vendors.

    Cons

    Really have to think about how to get back to where you were before and just getting around in general does not flow well.

    Great program! Needs some work but all in all a great program!

    Reviewed 6 years ago

    Some of the things that need work are: Docusign - it needs to be where we can assign signature fields for the tenant so they know where to sign. Reconciling - It needs to be a little less confusing when reconciling the ACH transactions. it would also be better if you could sort out the transactions by check number/ACH or by date. Scrolling - when you go into a tenants account to make changes the page scrolls back to the top when you come out. It needs to stay where you went into the tenants account so that if you are making multiple changes in an account you dont have to search for it again when you make the first change. Owner disbursements - It would be great if the program would automatically send an email to the owners when an owner disbursement is made.

    Pros

    It makes life a lot easier in the rental managing world. This program helps keep up with tenant payments and owner disbursements.

    Cons

    No cons were added to this review

    Vendor response

    Hi Tracey, We appreciate your kind comments about the software and wanted to respond to a couple of the challenges you mentioned. With our Docusign integration you are able to add signature fields for tenants from the drop-down fields list in the upper right when editing a form, it is part of the core functionality. A good solution for the scrolling issue you mention is to use the date range selector...

    Best Value and Easy To Use

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    Best value for the price and easy enough for the average person to get up and running.

    Pros

    I love the affordability of the software and the ease of use. I also like the ability to communicate and text the tenants through the portal and track them. Another great feature is the owner portal. Ny owner absolutely loves the easy access and variety of reports available as does her accountant.

    Cons

    Just a little difficult in the beginning setting up and getting the ACH approved for the payment of my owners. Another drawback was that the platform does not sync with my bank management account even though it says it can. I have to manually reconcile.

    Vendor response

    Thanks for the kind words, Robert! Related to your bank Sync issue - some banks actually require separate passwords for sync functionality, and some banks even charge a fee for that tool (Rentec does not). Possibly this is the issue? There is also another option for downloading your transactions from your bank that could speed things up for you.
