Customer service is a huge responsibility successful property managers take seriously. As you know, the happiness of your tenants and customers is a reflection of how much effort you put into your service.

From the overall appearance of your property – to managing work orders and tracking repairs – all aspects of your operation require a top-notch approach in order to catch the eye of your customers.

You want to leave them in awe…don’t you? FANTASTIC, then let’s do it!

We’re talking SAFE. It’s quite a simple concept too.

You’ve built your incident management infrastructure. All your departments are operating in unison.

Police, Fire Rescue, Security, IT, Maintenance and Housekeeping are loving your new system. You’ve read our article on improving communication across departments and it shows! Kudos.

All the same goes for property managers. Your maintenance efforts require a congruent effort on the part of your CMMS and its heroic partner.

Do you feel disengaged from your customers?

With an overwhelming amount of work coming through the funnel, we bet there’s a serious disconnect with your customers more times than none.

If our suspicions are correct, then you’ll need to get a solution in place…quickly. You’re going to need to turn on a web-based text notification system ASAP.

By doing this, you’ll be able to empower your customers, your staff and yourself to handle issues and mitigate hazardous incidents while they’re occurring.

You don’t have time to waste – Let’s get to it.
