Austin TX (PRWEB) June 24, 2014
In recent months there have been several desktop software products that have discontinued service, leaving their customers with no support, and very few alternatives other than remote server based software. The Tenant File has experienced a surge in the number of customers looking for a safer alternative to store their valuable data and the data of their customers. As recent data breaches have occurred, there has been a rising concern that the data stored on the cloud may not be as safe as assumed.
Recent loss of valuable information include retail outlets such as Target and Neiman Marcus, online sources such as Apple, Ebay, and Adobe, social sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Living Social, and a host of financial and government sites which have been compromised. Property managers are especially susceptible to damages from data loss since they maintain financial records, social security numbers, and personal information of the owners that they manage property for. Additionally, when the remote server is down because of data problems, maintenance, or other interruptions, the property management companies that depend upon them are literally out of business.
“A number of property management software companies, both desktop and cloud based, have gone belly up recently,” says Wayne Gathright, president of W G Software, Inc., which owns the Tenant File. He continues, “We have found that there is a large base of computer users that don’t want to trust the cloud for security reasons, and like the speed and convenience of desktop software. Our plan is to offer the best of both worlds.”
With the release of the groundbreaking Microsoft Surface tablet as an alternative to the laptop, there is a recognition that some applications just run better on desktop based platforms. Financial applications have an advantage of speed, local storage, easier backups, and security when run on local media. The Tenant File application runs on a desktop platform, but is able to email statements for Owners and Tenants, upload vacancy information to the Internet, receive rent payments from Tenants via ACH transfers, and upload Owner and Vendor Payments directly to their bank accounts.
In addition to the primary property management product, the Tenant File offers 1099 MISC tax software, Work Order software, Word Processing software, and Internet Web listings for real estate sales. Customer support includes two months of phone support, free web-based support, printed Quick Start Guides, online User’s Guide, training DVD’s, an online knowledge base, and paid training services by Tenant File software experts.
