Pendo Review

It would be above average compared to other software platforms I've tried. The price is right and therefore I'm willing to put up with some of it's limited functionality.

Pros

I like the fact that it's pretty simplistic to use, but it fairly robust in it's offering.

Cons

There are some limiting functions that we tried to get working (based on the initial sales pitch), that just won't work for us. Specifically, the bank reconciliation function. Once in a while there is some weird things that happen, but always get sorted out by support in the end.

Smart Tools for Small Players

Pros

Pendo provides valuable web-based tools to small-scale real estate investors and property managers at a fair price. The key features that I have found to be the most helpful are the ability to send and manage digital rental applications, to then use the platform to do perform credit and softcheck reports, and finally to automatically collect rent payments through PendoPay. These are the three features that I think provide the most value to me as they reduce risk efficiently and effectively. Although these features are offered by many other property management software companies, Pendo is one of the only ones (or maybe the only) that offers these features to small-scale investors located in Canada. Most of the other software applications that are available in Canada target Medium to Large scale companies with a monthly or annual fee that is too high for most small-scale property managers or DIY real estate investors.

Cons

I don't like that there isn't an accompanying app for smart phone / tablet. Other features that are not included that would provide much value include the ability to manage maintenance requests and tenant communication. While some may utilize the bookkeeping and reporting features, I do not and I prefer to use Quickbooks Online.

Reasons for Choosing Pendo

Although there are other property management software applications with more comprehensive features, they tend to be cost prohibitive and often with a poor user interface. I chose Pendo over all the alternative products because it is available in Canada and provides what I believe are some of the most important tools needed as a small-scale real estate investor.

Pendo is easy to use, navigate, and resolve issues with!

Easy and central place to organize and administer rental taskers.

Pros

They're incredibly responsive, and otherwise their product is always up and working. I love the extra goodies as well with regards to each property and personalization.

Cons

I think sometimes the way things can be organized on the landing page can be more straightforward, but you learn it fast and I'm content!

Have used Pendo for a few years and it works pretty well. Could use a few more expense catagories.

Pros

The reporting feature has been a good option when filing my taxes. I am able to download into a spreadsheet and check for errors and omissions.

Cons

It gets a little buggy once in a while. I have had problems with functionality and log in issues from time to time.

I manage over 100 apartments

Pros

I was so excited that you can send lease agreements out within 5 minutes; it's so easy. You can see what units are expiring in 90 days; you always have a good vision on what's happening in your portfolio.

Cons

If a lease is expiring say Sept 30, 2017 and you have done a new lease starting October 1, 2017 it doesn't recognize that you have a new lease pending.

Thanks for the positive review Sarah! So happy to hear that you are excited about how quick and easy it is to send a lease agreement and that Pendo keeps you up to date on what's happening in your portfolio.
