Features your Building Management Software should offer
In today’s modern and technologically advanced society, there tends to be new technologies and software being created all the time. Whilst this is great and gives us as consumers endless choices and possibilities, it can also be extremely overwhelming when it comes to choosing the right technology to best suit your specific situation and outcomes. To ensure you choose the right software for building management, there are a few features you should consider checking for, including streamlining your day-to-day management systems, integrated communication, and various management tools.
The first important feature your software should be able to perform is to streamline your day-to-day management systems that your building uses regularly. The aim of the software should be to condense your software down, rather than it becoming an extra program merely used for super niche reasons. When you do this correctly, you will find your technology use being more time effective, simple and overall, more organised. Some of the day-to-day features your software should be able to perform include providing an overview of all important parts of your management including administrative information, key register, parcel management, community management, budgeting and staff shift log.
With the use of technology being so intertwined in our day-to-day lives, there is absolutely no excuse for not communicating with your residents, tenants, or guests via technology. This means the second most important feature you should consider in your software, is the ability to communicate. The communication tool in your software should allow you to communicate in different ways such as text, email, and app announcements to cater to different scenarios. Lastly, the final feature that is worth investigating if your building management software can do, is the ability to effectively manage maintenance – including preventative, predictive, and reactive maintenance. Having software that helps manage this effectively, ensures your building will always be performing at its very best. Fortunately, buildings and facilities that use MYBOS are equipped with software that provides these key features building software should offer.
