Rent Manager Review


 

Rent Manager is a software system for both residential and commercial real estate companies. The financial accounting component of Rent Manager has full integration and includes standard functionality such as a general ledger with accounts receivable and accounts payable, payroll import, budget management and financial reporting.

Rent Manager is offered in two versions: an online version and a stand-alone version. The online version includes all the functionality of the stand-alone version, but with differences like automatic updates immediately upon release and bi-hourly data backups operations. The online version can be accessed remotely, and access points can be customized to restrict access to only specific parts of the system if the user chooses to do so.

The online version of Rent Manager also includes Web-based modules that are unavailable in the stand-alone version. These include Web access provided to residents, Web access to service managers and mobile admin. The online version has lower up-front costs, as the billing is conducted in the form of a monthly fee. Another key advantage of the online version is technical support where users share their screen with support.

The latest version of Rent Manager has been completely re-written to ensure leverage of the latest available technologies, rather than serving simply as an update of older versions. The system has been available since 1982, and has since been released in many newer versions with many improvements.

Don't waste time with Rent Manager

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

If you only manage 1 or 2 properties (and you own them), this might be OK. But, if you're in the business, this is the bottom of the barrel

Pros

It's cheap. That is the only pro. But if you're looking for good software, please don't even consider this.

Cons

It crashes and customer service is terrible. There is no way to correct accounting mistakes. It does not generate leases nor offer e-signatures. You have to manually generate owner's statements and manually e-mail them as all e-mails sent from Rent Manager end up in the spam folder.

Hi Enclave Holdings II,

Thank you for providing your feedback. We do take customer feedback seriously and we would love to speak with you further regarding any issues you might be having.

Rent Manager does allow you to correct accounting mistakes using GAAP standards. We also have leases, electronic signatures, an owner web portal for owner statements and information, report automation (including monthly owner statements), and much more available within the program. As for spammy emails, our Support Team can gladly help you look into this issue and find the root cause.

We were unable to find your contact information in our system. Please let us know the best way to contact you to walk through these built-in features via salesinfo@rentmanager.com. We look forward to hearing from you!

It is amazing to see how far the software has come in 13 years and it keeps out performing the competition. Took the time to reevaluate property management software for my company 18 months ago. Intrigued by some of the other firms but choose to double down with Rent Manager.

Pros

Value, features, and focus on the needs of the user. Strong trendy features with an accounting backbone that can not be beat.

Cons

Many new features without accompanied intuitive internal help or setup information. Takes a call to product support sometimes to to roll out but always worth the time to leverage all the features.

Pros

Coming from very manual processing managing almost 200 properties we have been blown away by the features and efficiencies of Rent Manager. Everything we have asked for it to do is already a feature and we have been amazed. Around our office if someone comes up with an idea our response is "Of course Rent Manager can do it!" From sales to conversion the staff is extremely knowledgeable and professional!

Cons

Not crazy about the remote server access - wish it was online based so that it can be accessed from anywhere - but wait it is! It just costs extra for that.

We are very happy we chose to stay with Rent Manager and upgrading rather than switching to a new program. RM transferred all our historical information over to the new version so the transition was almost seamless!

Pros

We were familiar with Rent Manager. We love the in-depth financial reports. The RM 12 version has many more customizing options in all areas of the software. RM University was a great help in learning the new version.

Cons

Sometimes a little slow in moving from area to area. Have to wait for RM customer service to call back when having a problem.

We have been using rent manager for over 4 years now. It's a great product. Need more tutorials/self help/videos for learning to maximize functionality.

Pros

Rent Manager is comprehensive, secure, and very functional. Customer service has been top notch, but they can't do tutorial only fix specific questions. I love how we can grow tenants and accounts and it can build without rescaling.

Cons

Pros

Good and many features. Gets the job done. Global search is very handy. Comprehensive User's Guide is better than most. Accessible, friendly and thorough customer service.

Cons

Fundamental usability flaws mean frustration and unnecessary time spent especially with repetitive tasks, and sore wrists from all the mousing that shouldn't be necessary. Could be much better with keyboard usability and meeting standard Windows UI Guidelines, including consistency of access keys, initial focus, visible focus, tab order, behavior of Ctrl+Tab and arrow keys, binding of Esc and Enter keys, dialog design (group boxing, UI element labeling), semantic relationship of menu items, indicating that menu items open dialogs, UI guidelines governing error/warning/info messages, etc. These fundamentals are generally among the very first things to test and fix in a user interface to avoid accumulation into usability issues.

A Wealth of Features & Could Always Use a Few Tweaks

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

Pros

It is a tenant-centric platform, allowing our residents to see their accounts and pay on-line, thereby reducing our central office workload. We operate 15 or so entities with RM and a handful with QuickBooks. From a financial analyst viewpoint, I prefer QB, because of the easy export features. Still, we have 1,300 + tenants and are re-building occupancy at newly acquired mobile home parks, so our focus is on providing the best face for our residents. QB was not doing that for us. This is a more comprehensive program tailored for the rental world

Cons

For some inexplicable reason, report exports to Excel do not carry the formulas over. It is a huge time waster for those of doing a repetitive analysis of multiple companies. I can only think this relates to some licensing issue. QB does it automatically and I miss that. In fact, I resent that RM does not provide that functionality and don't understand why they wouldn't provide this time and money saving convenience to their customer base.

I switched over my friends 500 unit operation on Jan 1st of 2017 from Yardi, and have continued to be impressed at how comprehensive the software is. It is very rare that the software can't do what we want it to do. The tech support is very responsive and competent. My experience is with RM12. There is a little bit of a learning curve with the software, but this is ALWAYS the case when software that is as comprehensive as RM12. It was a big job and commitment to change software after 25+ years of using Yardi, but it was absolutely worth it.

Pros

Can purchase what features you want separately. Integrates web functionality, customization is abundant, support is amazing, interface and usability as as good as can be expected with this level of complexity.

The program is staple, customer service is responsive and I have never been disappointed with this product.

Pros

With very little training anyone can be up and running a very comprehensive program that will streamline the management of any type of rental property.

Cons

I am not sure if I am grandfathered in or they still offer the core application at a reduced rate for users that have under 99 units, but I wish some of their other add-on products also had discounted pricing for smaller properties like mine as well.

I like that the software is low cost and web based. I also like that you can merge resident mailers and that type of thing.

Rent Manager is a basic software. If you don't want all the bells and whistles, than rent manager will work fine. If you want a lot more, you have to go with one of the bigger softwares like Resman or Onesite.

I work at a 740 unit property. it does NOT run smooth at all. To find an easy answer you have to pull different reports in different areas to get the answer you need. There are errors and issues that happen almost daily and sometimes multiple times a day. The program should make your job easier not harder. It has been over 3 months and they still can not fix or have not fixed the Aged Receivables report. When you run the report it includes prospects-even though you check a box to NOT include them! One of the reasons our owner got Rent Manager 12 was because the phone calls were recorded now RM found out that it is illegal to store recorded phone calls in the tenants history/notes so you can't use that anymore. Not happy with their program or service.

Pros

recorded calls-until RM took it away.

Cons

We had considered other software before deciding on Rent Manager in November 2015. Rent Manager has been around for a very long time. They seem to understand what property managers really want/need based on the length of their experience. We like that there are a lot of options; the software is robust. Reporting, usability, cost, and integration (with our website/tenant application, a consumer credit company and other software) were important to us. We have been happy with the software in general. Their customer support is pretty good. They've been rolling out new features. We started on their older version - Rent Manager Xi - and have switched to the new platform - Rent Manager 12 - that was introduced February 2016. This was their first major software update in the last decade. Complaints about the older-looking interface are likely about Xi. I would say 12 has a look that is somewhat similar to Quickbooks.

We are managing about 270 multi-site residential units and growing. (I understand some people use this software to manage other things like boat slips and salon chairs!) One thing we really liked about Rent Manager was that it scales up easily. We didn't want to have to go through another software switch any.time.soon. We heard that there are some property managers happily using the system with 1000+ units.

One major difference between Rent Manager and other property management software options is that Rent Manager charges by the user login where others charge by the unit.

We're about to add a new feature rmService which allows our maintenance team to use a phone app instead of the internet to access service requests and tenant info. Should make service requests easier to manage in the field.

Pros

- Customizable options (User Defined Fields)
- New updates being rolled out
- Reporting
- Customer support
- A lot of features
- Integration
- Cost for basic use...especially if you have a small staff
- Scalability

Cons

- Web design is wildly expensive! (The quotes from RM's design team are nearly the rate our independent web designer charges luckily you can get their user guides and use your own web designer (to create your integrated website, application, rental listings, etc.)
- A la carte features that need to be purchased for an additional fee
- Rent Manager 12 has some small bugs still being ironed out but nothing major
- Web Portal Suite (namely the MobileRM website) should be better/more user-friendly

I was thrown into a role where I had to rebuild the rent manager account after a previous person made some pretty big accounting errors. I found rent manager to be user-friendly and really efficient for billing and paying owners. When I had questions or issues their customer support was very responsive and helpful resolving my issues. I would defiantly recommend this product to anyone managing investor units.

Pros

User-friendly- Easy to learn how to use and teach your self-basic functions.
Organization - Great to be able to bill and track maintenance and accounting in the same program
Customer Service - Always resolved my issues and taught me how to avoid or correct the issue for the future.

Cons

Only affordable for larger companies

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Value for Money

The program itself is pretty outdated compared to most products out there today but does have decent functionality in terms of reporting and user-defined fields specifically. The main downside for me is the fact that the program only runs off of a remote server and you can't access through a standard browser. The price point is not bad overall, but the way that they have over a dozen add-on products with additional charges and the deceiving way that they present their different products was quite discerning for me. When I had an issue with billing by rent manager, I was treated rudely, and they were extremely unhelpful. I have looked into other software in the past 2 months and I am planning on switching starting January 1st. Although there are a few minor features that this new software will not provide, I have found it to be a large improvement overall from Rent Manager.

Pros

-Comprehensive reporting;
-Overall price point (excluding add-on feature, which really brings up the cost).

Cons

-The remote server set up, which only allows logging in from a computer previously set up;
-Only one user is allowed on the program at once (you pay for extra users);
-The interface is extremely outdated (it looks like Windows 2000)
-Electronic payments and credit checks are not incorporated and are done through outside companies, which is extremely annoying;
-The system for service requests and work orders is extremely convoluted and, in my opinion, useless;
- You cannot reconcile your bank accounts automatically, which is pretty common these days:
-The upload and download feature does not work properly and is a waste of time;
-The apps associated with the software is not made well, and you really have very little mobile functionality.

Advice to Others

You can do much better with other companies, and even if it costs a bit more, you will save the money with easier functionality and quicker processes for completing work all around.

Since day one almost 7 years ago working with Rent Manager the sales and support staff have been phenomenal to work with. No matter what the question, no matter how big or small, or how many times, in the beginning, I bothered my Sales Rep, she was always willing to take as much time with me as I needed to answer any questions or help in any way she could. The tech support staff is also incredible and willing to work tirelessly to help with any issue, if there is one.

It runs our business for us.

Pros

Customization, functionality and performance come together in this world class management tool. We have used RM Xi for years now in our PM business. Compared to the other PM software solutions, RM provides the most cost effective solution without sacrificing utility or features.

Cons

RM Xi still has a bit of a database feel to it. This has been corrected in RM12. Being on the cloud, there is also some internet connectivity issues that must be managed occasionally.

I can speak intelligently and have charts, graphs, and any type of reports necessary to convey all required information to owners.

Pros

The selection of reports available to run for owners is great; The ability to customize the reports if need be; The breakdown of each property; The ability to create new locations for new projects.

Cons

Hold time for customer service; the process of running through all the check boxes of some reports; the inability to email customer statements in a group, rather it is done one by one.

I can't express how important this product is to our company. This software has allowed our company to grow without adding any additional staff. This software also allows us to easily document everything. We scan every document that comes through the office. We take notes on every tenant phone call or face to face interaction. If you need to manage multiple offices from a remote location Rent Manager is the best way to do it. We have been using Rent Manager for 3 years and have only begun to fully use all of its resources.

I am a Rent Manager Poster Child. I love the software and the customer service. It's the perfect software for all sorts of property management applications from owner managed rentals to third party managed rentals. I've used Rent Manager since 2008 every day ; all day....and I have no complaints. It simplifies my life since it is so robust yet easy to use.

Our company has been using this software since back in the days of DOS. We have been very pleased with it and the company; they are consistently adding new features and keeping up with technology innovations. The best thing about it is that it is comprehensive. It integrates our web-site, accounting, rent collection, utility billing and home loan activities. It has a phone auto-dial feature that allows us to call delinquent residents or send out alerts to every resident in a property. We use the on-line version so that the central office and on-site managers all have access to the same information in real time. We don't have to worry about losing data for a property because an on-site computer crashed or was stolen - Rent Manager backs up the data continuously. Our residents can pay rent on-line 24/7 or sign up for auto debit or even pay with cash at the local Wal-mart. This saves a tremendous amount of time for management. The monthly cost is very reasonable - less than the rent from one of our mobile home sites - and the savings in time more than pays for itself.

I like that it's free and open until 7pm eastern. There was a time when the phone reps didn't seem that well trained but that hasn't been the case in the last 4 years or so...we get VERY well trained support when we call in and they are friendly.

Like the extremely detailed reporting that I can customize, great andriod app, user defined fields that we use a lot to manage the unique competitive advantages our business has, integrated VOIP is really cool, nicely organized software (such as prospects, customers, epay, work orders, etc), and on and on. There's a lot I like about lcs rm...event went to their user conference last year for the first time in New Orleans and our team enjoyed that.
The pricing model isn't always ideal. Sometimes it's confusing. But that's perhaps par for most software companies. They have released so many new features so quickly (and they really are good features!) that about 5% don't work.....but they always fix them within a few a weeks of us letting them know. It's not web based yet...but then again, I tried a web based site and it was terrible!! I had such limited features. RM12. rminspection needs a bit more building out as it's kind of clunky to use but it does work and is helpful. I would like for them to have an affordability module but I hear that's in the works and from my experience when RM says they are going to build something, they do!
If you like details and you like to analyse your data and you want REALLY strong financials ingratiated into your resident management, than this is for you. RM also appears to be on the leading edge of web and app integration with the core product. My company of about 40 gets excited when RM makes new releases because it's usually something cool and different that we can use. Like texting with residents and voip integration.

This software contains many features, some that we did not even know about until lately. Service has been very responsive. The remote desktop instead of web-based has its pros and cons.

We are excited for rent manager 12 which will include several important marketing tools that we do not currently have.

We appreciate the willingness to rise to our specific needs and are willing to try to work through areas that we as a company would like to see the software continue to upgrade. RM is very responsive and supportive.

Although RM is continuing to integrate solutions on how to streamline some of the processes some of the formatting and the overall look for the user seems a bit outdated. Would like to see a more cutting edge/modern look.

User Friendly Program and as the CFO love the PRICE for what we get. I can access the program anywhere which is a HUGE Bonus for me as I travel a lot and need to get online to resolve issues or answers questions. Great Customer Service with ease of submitting tickets from within the program saving a significant amount of time by not sitting on your phone waiting for someone to pick up. We have been with them since we started four years ago and their Customer Service orientation is what sets them apart for me.

Cons: We are a smaller Mulit-Family so I cant speak for a larger multi-family however, we are running five different locations, adding one more this year and are able to lock users into just their location but I can easily float back and forth. I don't like that it closes all my windows when I leave one location, as I am a multi-tasker but it doesn't really slow me up. The Finance / Accounting Folks (that would be me and my Team) would love a better audit system but I have always been able to find things with there search tools.

Pros: Can obtain financial data in a cash basis and an accrual basis. Not just one or the other.
Con: Cannot enter a credit memo exactly like an invoice. You have to enter the credit memo and apply it to an invoice.

I cannot run my business with out this software solution. Their automated workflow program, accounting, marketing, and reporting are all top of the line. I have used Yardi prior to using Rent Manager and there is no comparison. I am very happy with Rent Manager.
