AppFolio Is First To Demonstrate The Future of Mobile Property Management: Web-based Property Management Software On The iPad

Santa Barbara, CA -- June 14, 2010

AppFolio is the first web-based property management software provider to illustrate the future of mobile property management – property managers working from anywhere using an iPad and AppFolio software.

Property managers are quick to embrace the freedom to work from anywhere as it allows them to achieve better work/life balance, improve efficiencies and provide better service to their customers. Working from anywhere isn't just for the company executives – avoiding trips back and forth to the office and accessing information in the field allows everyone in the organization to significantly improve productivity, saving time and money.

How Do Mobile Property Management Companies Improve Their Business?

  • Improve the Leasing Process: Give prospective renters the chance to look at photos of other available properties by accessing AppFolio while in the field and rent the property faster.
  • Sales Demonstrations: Give real-time demonstrations using an iPad at owner meetings. Show (instead of just tell) the increase in efficiency across the entire business when you can access your business information from anywhere at anytime.
  • Resolve maintenance issues faster: Maintenance technicians can use their iPad and update AppFolio work orders immediately, avoiding wasted trips back to the office.
  • Save Time on Inspections: Create work-orders in the field and dramatically speed up this typically time consuming process.

"Property management is a fast-paced, demanding business, that doesn't always happen behind a desk," said Brian Donahoo, AppFolio CEO. "The iPad combined with our web-based property management software is improving the profits of property management businesses and improving the lives of the people running them. Our property management customers just love the reality of running their business without being chained to a desk."
