Being a new income property owner, I was overwhelmed by the cost of other platforms. SimplefyEm was easy to use, had all of the features of the others, and allowed me free access on my first rental property. I will be upgrading soon!

Pros

Free for one property
Low monthly rates for multiple properties
Ability to bill tenants and accept ACH
Document storage

Cons

Could be a little easier to navigate.

After working in the property management industry and dealing with software like Appfolio, I know the impact of a good software in the day to day operation in my new job as an investor of 8 apartment rentals.

Pros

Online rent payments
Tenant and vendor reports, income and expense reports, rent roll, etc

Cons

Parking fee and any other fees have to be compiled in one rent payment. Does not allow to break it up.

Advice to Others

Great product and very affordable

Pros

Easy to use, affordable, excellent customer support, tenant, and owner's reports

Cons

Doesn't have smartphone access at this time

Advice to Others

Try Simplifyem before you pay more for its competitors. You may find it's exactly what you need.

After tracking investment property income and expenses in MS Excel became too tedious, I found Simplifyem to be a cost effective solution Their customer service and support is excellent. It tracks income and expenses and keeps track of what is owed very well. It has pre assigned categories and the user can add them as well. The software is cloud based which allows a user to access the information from anywhere with an internet connection. The software allows the user to generate reports to send to the accountant.

Pros

Cloud Based. Excellent customer support

Cons

Site is not friendly for mobile users - Would love to see an app developed
Limited options for customization

Advice to Others

If you are a small to mid size property management firm or Landlord, Simplifyem is a very good solution to run your business. Their pricing schemes are highly competitive.

I felt it was pretty to use with quit a bit of options for the one performing the use on the software.

Pros

A great deal for your money

Cons

I feel that the cost starts out really good however, they offer some other products for the higher tiers that are not available in the lower ones.

Advice to Others

If you don't want to have to go through a lot of unnecessary questions and a lot of extra screens to get where you want to go then, this is the one for you! It is easy to use with all needed documentation for year end Tax purposes.

The telephone response to questions about use of the product is excellent.

There are a few glitches in the software such as the inability to split expenses over more than one property without having to make the division allocation and then pull up each property and make the entry. I have asked why they will not modify the program which is basically from an old Quicken Property Management program but they have told me there is not a great demand for this. I wonder if the users even know of the possibility???

Recommendations

I recommend that if a problem develops be sure to call the SimplifyEm Tech number as you will get an answer to your questions right away and you will not have to listen to constant background noise/clanging in a foreign call center and a tech person you cannot understand.

Easy to use, clean interface. Customer support is amazing. They will help you on weekends too. Pricing is very reasonable.

Likes Least

Few things could be improved: 1. No way to send tenant direct invoice. 2. Accounting for return of security deposit and making deductions is almost impossible. 3. Online payment module is not quite integrated with the tenant info, if you enter a rent increase starting in 2 months, higher payment will be taken out the next month??

Recommendations

If your property is in Rent Controlled jurisdiction and units have roommates take a very hard look.

We have not started using SimplifyEm yet. Will start setting it up in November 2016 to launch January 2017. We have signed up for a 3 year commitment. My overview is on the software advice we got. They recommended three companies that they thought would work for our business. I did not have to go through the hassle of calling and searching a dozen companies. I contacted the three companies that they recommended. Took a look at what they had to offer and the price it was going to cost per year. I decided that SimplifyEm would work the best for our business. They made searching for a software company much less taxing.

Likes Least

There is nothing that I do not like. They were very prompt in helping me select a software. They called back to see if I had any questions or if I needed more help in selecting a different software.

Recommendations

Just take the time to research what they have to offer and what your need are currently and what you speculate them to be in the future to make your decision.

It is very easy to use. It has a clear presentation. Seeing lots of units at a glance is easy.

When putting in the details of the payment in the notes section, something happens with the formatting. like instead of symbols (Which I use when putting in dates) it changes them to "n" and other weird things. I have had to modify the way I input information. Also, when people are behind, if you input the actual date that they pay, it goes to the month that payment was received (ie: if someone pays me August 8th for July rent, if I use date of payment, it will only apply to August. So I have to use the notes section to say when the payment inputted)

Recommendations

If you are looking for something basic, this is a great software. I am very happy with it.
