Property management platforms provide you with a simple way to virtually mange your vendors on both the web and mobile devices, allowing you to interact with a vendor company, or specific vendor employee instantaneously.
Most Property Management teams view their property management platform as their single source into what is happening at any given time within their portfolio. Every work order, preventative maintenance task, inspection, and incident passes through the system, yet for some reason vendors are rarely incorporated into it.
It may not be the most glamorous job, but maintenance crews are the lifeblood of a building – creating an environment for tenants that is clean, safe and welcoming. And while it’s easy to think of service providers as a “rotating door”- easily replaced by the lowest bidder – make sure that a low cost is backed by a history of professionalism and experience!
We all also have our own personal experiences with service, both good and bad. My favorite great service stories are those examples of a commitment to service that happen behind the scenes – not promoted, and just ingrained into either a person’s character or a company culture.
