By shifting the communication to email or sms, a property manager can communicate with all their tenants with a single email or sms broadcast. This can save hours of phone calls for otherwise ordinary requests like maintenance notifications.

Rentec Direct, makers of industry leading property management software, brings more great communication utilities to landlords. The new messaging center empowers property managers to easily and quickly communicate to all their tenants, or just tenants within a single building with just a couple clicks.
According to Rentec subscribers, communication is rated as one of the most difficult and time consuming parts of being a property manager. In a traditional property management environment most communication is done by phone, which is both time consuming and rarely documented. By shifting the communication to email or sms, a property manager can communicate with all their tenants with a single email or sms broadcast. This can save hours of phone calls for otherwise ordinary requests like maintenance notifications.
Rentec recently announced compatibility with the nationwide cellular SMS network, and that capability is built into the new messaging center as well. Not every tenant has email, or checks email frequently; however, most now have a cell phone with SMS capabilities. Sending a group SMS to all tenants with mobile numbers is just as easy, and also recorded within the system and archived forever.
These new messaging capabilities extend beyond tenants as well. Property managers who manage properties on behalf of property owners can also group message all owners, or a sub-set of owners in the same manner. This keeps a communication log not only between tenants, but owners as well to complete the communication loop for property managers.
