Things work better when everyone is on the same page, including your apartment’s body corporate. However, building management has so many aspects to the role, it can be difficult to balance the needs of your community with maintenance and building works. That is where MYBOS’s caretaker app which can help with facility management, caretaker duties and considers all the needs of your residents in the strata.

Committee management
Committees have a reputation for being inefficient and ineffectual. MYBOS app for committee management streamlines the committee process. You can help ensure your owner’s corporation holds regular meetings with clear agendas and strong attendance. MYBOS includes calendar-booking features to help your committee manage dates and times with all the building’s residents. The MYBOS app is also multilingual and can be used in over 15 languages for easy communication across cultural barriers, and to ensure everyone feels comfortable and understood.

When your committee is organised and engaged it makes for a high performing community in your building. All residents receive the information they need to make timely decisions on the management of the building. When your residents are involved and informed, they are more likely to pay their strata fees on time and keep healthy funds available for building maintenance. When your committee then has access to support and funds, they can set and meet realistic budgets and utilise their skills and experience for a well-run property.

Community communication
A high performing community can only operate at its full potential when everyone knows what is expected of them. By using the communication tools within the MYBOS app you can have detailed and efficient rules in place for your building community to follow, to ensure everyone lives together peacefully.

For example, you can make sure your residents’ maintenance requests, any defects, bookings, documents and property announcements are easily accessible and trackable. This means you can see when something has been actioned and when one of your residents are in need of attention. You can also easily communicate with your community by email or SMS. Or you can use a public display system to send out special offers and building notifications. Your community will also be able to feel in control when they have access to the library through the MYBOS app. The library allows each resident to access their property documents at any time of the day or night.
