Best product for your money

2016-12-14

After working in the property management industry and dealing with software like Appfolio, I know the impact of a good software in the day to day operation in my new job as an investor of 8 apartment rentals.

Pros

Online rent payments Tenant and vendor reports, income and expense reports, rent roll, etc

Cons

Parking fee and any other fees have to be compiled in one rent payment. Does not allow to break it up.

Easy to use property management software

2017-07-31

I like it as it has made property management job easy.

Pros

My tenants also send maintenance requests through their portals which is really convenient because I can just create a work order and assign it to a vendor right away.

Cons

None, software works as expected and the functionality is easy to use which will be of a benefit to non tech savvy users

SimplifyEm Simplified My Life

2017-10-14

It has reduced my paperwork significantly, and there are fewer errors as SimplifyEm keeps track of every aspect of the management of our property. 

Pros

SimplifyEm also allowed me to send emails, rent reminders, rent receipts, and notices. 

Cons

If there is a way to hide these features, it will make the application even more easy to use.

SimplifyEm met all my property management needs

2017-08-25

As a vendor that offers free training and also support through the phone and via email, SimplifyEm support is very easy to contact.

Pros

When a tenant sends a maintenance request, I track work orders and repairs via the calendar so I know when to buy equipment, schedule my maintenance personnel, and see the history for each tenant/apartment.

Cons

SimplifyEm’s accounting module manages accounts payable and receivable and monitors any recurring charges along with a complete transaction history.

As a new rental property owner, I needed something simple to help me manage my income and expenses for my two rental properties. I started out just using a spreadsheet, but then I found SimplifyEm! It was perfect and exactly what I needed. It is so easy to enter my income and expense items. Then I found the online rent collection module. I immediately set both my tenants up on it, and now I don't have to wait for rent checks in the mail, go to the bank, or anything. It's all automated. The cash flow and tax reports are great, too!

So far loving it and the customer support is just as good if not better than the reviews stated.

2018-04-10

I highly recommend this company and their program.

Pros

A full suite of leasing and management and cloud-based!

Cons

Nothing so far, just the learning curve with a new system. I've gone from a Quicken, stand-alone program to this fine product and it'll just take a little while to get used to all the bells and whistles.

Can be used anywhere

2017-11-11

On top of everything SimplifyEm is a web-based software and can be used from anywhere with access to Wi-Fi. I recommend the software to property managers and any owner of a rental property.

Pros

I like rent reminders and ability to track maintenance requests.

Cons

I wish I could use the application offline. Some of the forms like lease agreements, notices to quit, notice to pay can be accessed offline but I cannot do data entry offline.

Response from SimplifyEm.com


Notifications have always been sent immediately via email for service requests. These requests can be edited or updated by logging into the account. Online payments always take 2 business days to clear before being deposited. Online payments are incredibly popular due to the convenience for both the tenant and the property manager. They will also automatically make an entry in the software when a payment is made letting you know the deposit date. We pride ourselves on the excellent support we provide, so if you have any questions or need help, please feel free to contact support at 510 790 9066 9-5pm PST or support@simplifyem.com.
