Managing industrial properties can be a fast-paced, high-stress endeavor. From managing tenant relations and monitoring energy efficiency to fielding maintenance requests and ensuring compliance, the daily to-do list in industrial property management can feel a mile long. A property management application can help, but choosing the right software is imperative. A property management software program must automate workflows to minimize errors and increase efficiency. It must also integrate data and tools from disparate systems to deliver a unified view of the business and property portfolio. Exceptional property management programs should enable teams to customize every aspect of the software, ensuring that teams have tools that are perfectly suited to each project.

For industrial property management software that checks all these boxes and many others, more firms today turn to Quickbase. As a no-code application development platform, Quickbase offers pre-configured software solutions for property management that can be easily adapted and customized by virtually any team member, regardless of their technical background.

The Advantages of Property Management Software

Powerful property management systems can dramatically reduce the effort involved in managing day-to-day activities while improving visibility, eliminating errors, and enabling smarter decision-making.

With a superior industrial property management system, firms can:

  • Accomplish more in less time. By automating workflows, industrial property management software can perform in seconds what it takes teams of human beings minutes or hours to accomplish. As a result, management software helps accelerate timelines and increase efficiency.

  • Connect data for 360° visibility. When teams manage tasks and documents with manual workflows, it’s difficult to get real-time updates on the status of projects, leases, insurance coverage, utilities, and tenant relationships. A powerful industrial property management system will connect disparate data silos and provide flexible dashboards that deliver a real-time view of the business and every property.

  • Respond quickly to emergencies and opportunities. In property management, agility is key to maintaining profitability. With support from the right software system, you can turn on a dime when necessary to respond to emergencies or to take advantage of new opportunities. As you take more properties under management, an automated software system will allow you to scale processes and workflows easily.

  • Find, hire, and keep top talent. Attracting and retaining the right people is always difficult. However, when workplace processes are automated and employees are focused on strategic priorities rather than repetitive tasks, hiring and retaining talent becomes much easier.
