Choosing the Right Business Property Landlord Software



If you asked a hundred successful commercial landlords which business management tool they could not live without my bet is that the majority of them would say it was good property landlord software. There are very good reasons for this. Property is expensive. Property is a high value asset which costs money to maintain and, as if that wasn’t enough to worry about, the property rental market is volatile and we are not living in the easiest of economic times.

The key to survival and success in the commercial property rental sector is management control. To be in control commercial landlords need information in the right form at the right time. This is why good property landlord software is essential. Quite frankly without it a landlord will be wasting both time and money muddling through with basic manual or spreadsheet systems. To get on you need to get ahead and the right property landlord software will enable you to do this.

Choosing the right software for your business is, however, easier said than done. There are lots of products out there and they will not all be best suited to the type of business that you are running. If you choose one that is not suited to the type and size of your business you will make your life harder, not easier, and you will be out of pocket too.

Thorough research is the key. Think carefully about your business. Where is it now and where do you want it to be a year and five years from now? It is your job to know your business inside out. What are your business needs? What ambitions do you have? Check out the credentials of the makers of the software. Who has designed and had input into it? It makes sense to look for a product that has had input from a successful commercial landlord. Look online and in trade magazines to see if the designer’s credentials are sound. Look for independent and positive reviews. Do you know what your competitors and rivals are using? Can you see it in action in a demonstration at a trade fair or at your office? Make a list of the functions you require that you cannot live without and then make a wish list of extras that would be useful. Stick to your guns and do not be pressured into buying a product that you are not confident about using. In reality you just apply the principles you use when researching, choosing and buying a property.

Rest assured your hard work will pay off. Once you have identified and are using the best landlord software package for your business you really won’t know yourself. Without a doubt tasks that were once tedious and repetitive, but necessary for the day to day running of your business, will become simpler and quicker. Getting together the information you need for the taxman will also be a simpler and less stressful process. What are you waiting for?
