Your company just bought new property management software, and like any new purchase, you want to take it out for a spin. But unlike say… a new 2014 Maserati GranTurismo that only needs a lead foot and a tank of gas to operate, your property management platform offers you a multitude of ways to get started – which can leave you feeling a bit overwhelmed. Luckily, I’m here to steer you in the right direction.
A well-worn aphorism tells us that “if you’re not moving forward, you’re moving backwards” – a notion that presupposes that the world – your world, your business, and your competition – are always moving. So you too must move with them, or better yet ahead of them, if you plan to succeed. In business, change is a synonym for movement, so if you are not fostering change, then you are standing still.
Yep, it’s that time of year again. That time when there aren’t enough hours in the day and crunching numbers never seems to end… It’s Budget Season. In case you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed, check out our budget checklist below to make sure you’ll be nailing your targets for the year ahead.

Planning normally begins with budget season in the fall and rolls into the winter months as management and engineers strategize their game plans for the upcoming year.
