How to Please Even the Most Finicky of Board Members with Technology

Technology’s influence on businesses today is undeniable, especially in the property management industry.

Using a solution that is cloud-based ensures you’ll meet even the most finicky of board-members’ expectations.

The rise of cloud-based technology was inevitable. In the past, companies have had to set up and manage their own server infrastructure to host and execute applications. Over the past few years, most companies have eliminated this pain-point by migrating to fully cloud-based work environments.

While it may seem strange or different from the current way of doing business, the property management industry can benefit greatly from new technology. Let’s look at four ways technology can please even the most demanding board member.

4 Ways Technology and Cloud-Based Property Management Software Will Make Board Members Happy


Hard-to-please board members are nothing new.

Here are four ways technology can help you to exceed your board members expectations:

1. Greater Efficiency


We are starting with the most important factor, efficiency.

For board members, time is money—every second matters when running a business. Transitioning from traditional to cloud technology will cost time (again, time = money), so the question to answer here is, will upgrading to a cloud-based property management software be worth it?

100% YES! Choosing the right property management software can improve the overall efficiency of managing your community. Instead of utilizing QuickBooks for accounting and another application for community communications, our cloud technology accomplishes both with just [ONE] software subscription.

You don’t need to install or pay for numerous systems. Instead, having an all-in-one solution allows you to manage all duties from a single system, making things easier for both executives and property managers. Another great bonus is that you can handle all elements of your community in one place. Your association will save money by requiring fewer subscriptions.

2. Iron-Clad Security


A top concern is sensitive data protection.

According to research from last year, new cyberattacks occur every 39 seconds somewhere on the Internet.

Data loss can happen whether you have everything stored in filing cabinets or your computer’s hard drive. A reputable SaaS vendor can protect your data with top-of-the-line security measures, and with IT experts focused on safeguarding sensitive data in cloud settings.

TOPS [ONE] receives regular automatic upgrades, along with advanced security protections to help minimize the overall security concerns of our users. Aside from being secure from data breaches, our cloud-based solution is programmed to be constantly synchronized and kept in the Cloud. As a result, data recovery is straightforward and fast, allowing organizations to continue operating normally without major disruptions.

3. Full Accessibility


Another way modern technology can help make your board members happy is with their accessibility to your data.

TOPS [ONE] has made it possible for board members to easily access their accounts from any device. It also enables property managers to stay on top of everything in the neighborhood, no matter where they are.

In times of disruptions that force staff out of the office, users can expect multiple ways to access their accounts. If there’s an internet connection available, they can log in to the system, make payments, record data, and check their accounts. Not just the property managers but board members and your property owners can benefit from this too.

4. Return on Investment


ROI on your investment in a solution for your property management needs and is key to a happy board.

Board members expect a high ROI on tools that are meant to make processes more efficient. ROI doesn’t only translate to dollars on your monthly revenue reports.

It could also come in the following forms:

👉 Improved relationships with your vendors

👉 Increased productivity of your team members

👉 Higher customer satisfaction

👉 Reduced monthly cost on unnecessary software
