Managing a real estate portfolio is full of complex and business-critical tasks. From diversifying assets and containing costs to ensuring compliance and tracking mountains of data, portfolio management requires extraordinary organization and efficiency. The right portfolio management software can help by automating workflows, connecting systems, and providing a 360° view of your portfolio and every property in it.

Flexibility is the most important feature when choosing portfolio and real estate asset management software. To ensure your software will serve your needs, a portfolio management solution must be fully customizable, allowing virtually any member of your team to adapt tools, interfaces, and reports to meet the unique requirements of your portfolio and the way you do business.

That’s where Quickbase can help. As a Dynamic Workplace Management platform, we use no-code application development to offer templates and pre-configured solutions for portfolio management that can be easily adapted by team members with any level of technical experience. With Quickbase, your teams can continuously improve your portfolio management software and other complex business applications without the cost and delay of traditional software development.

The benefits of portfolio management software

A superior real estate asset management or commercial real estate software solution will enable teams to accomplish several important objectives.

  • Consolidate data. The right portfolio management platform makes it possible to store and access all information in one location, avoiding the need for team members to search through multiple applications and platforms to find the details they need.

  • Connect stakeholders. The best software will provide a central platform where stakeholders can view real-time, personalized dashboards.

  • Improve decision-making. Providing a comprehensive view of the portfolio and details of each property, a portfolio management application must enable teams to make data-driven decisions that increase portfolio value.

  • Accelerate timelines. Portfolio management software should streamline workflows and communication to accelerate decisions and ensure every deadline is met.

  • Streamline collaboration. Superior software will allow every member of the team to access task lists, workflows, and data from any location on any device, making it easier for teams on the go to communicate and collaborate.

  • Tighten financial management. By providing a transparent view into all aspects of real estate portfolio and property management, the right portfolio management software can help teams to contain costs, forecast expenses, and monitor profitability more effectively.

What is no-code development?

No-code platforms provide an easier and more agile way to build software. In a no-code platform, professional developers and business users configure applications in a visual environment rather than writing code one line at a time. Quickbase’s Visual Builder allows users to create applications and automate workflows by using point-and-click tools, software templates, reusable components, and pre-built elements. Developers can build software by starting from scratch, by starting with a template, or by importing data from spreadsheets. To connect software to existing data sources and systems, Quickbase provides a visual tool for orchestrating workflows across a broad ecosystem of software.

Why Quickbase?

To ensure successful citizen development using no-code tools, Quickbase offers a proven approach and best practices perfected over 20 years of empowering non-coders to create powerful business solutions. Quickbase tools and services require no professional training. A secure and flexible governance framework allows companies to shift the responsibility for creating software from IT teams to the business users who are closest to the problems that need to be solved.

Guardrails within the product keep data and existing applications safe while ensuring that new projects conform with security, design, and regulatory requirements. A robust set of enablement services and 24/7 customer support provide help and answers for business users and IT teams.
