Our everyday lives have been digitally transformed. Has your relationship with your Property Factor?

Digital transformation has revolutionised nearly every aspect of our daily lives, making routine tasks more convenient, efficient, and accessible.

From the moment we wake up to when we go to bed, digital technologies are seamlessly integrated into our routines, enhancing our quality of life.

Think about your day…

  • Many of us start our day with the help of smart home devices like Amazon Alexa or Google Home. After these devices wake you up, they can control your lights, adjust the thermostat, play your favourite music, and even provide weather updates or news briefings.
  • A brief stroll (for many, not all) to the office allows us to work remotely. Platforms like Zoom, Slack, and Microsoft Teams have made remote work more feasible and efficient.
  • Services, some of them free, like Google Drive, Dropbox, and Microsoft OneDrive enable you to store, access, and share files from anywhere, facilitating easy collaboration and data management.

With this in mind, how easy is it to manage the relationship with not only your Property Manager, but, your neighbours and contractors.

Available technology allows for real time group conversations as well as options for private messages – a new development in how you interact with and understand communal works in your building.

Consider how this might change some common scenarios . . .

  • Your neighbour reports a broken light, all neighbours in that building can see the message.  There’s no need for multiple phone calls and emails.
  • You would like your neighbours to consider decorating the hallway. You can raise the question through the messenger system. If sufficient interest is shown, you or your Property Manager can raise a job ticket and gather quotes. You can all review the quotes and vote on approving the works online anywhere, anytime. Regardless of the decision, the process offers full transparency, and a level of control previously unavailable to the homeowners.
  • You would like to know when a contractor is expected on site. Just visit the job ticket and view the contractor’s input. If it is unsuitable, add a comment suggesting another time.
  • If the contractor has visited a job and created a work quotation, all concerned parties should be able to access this information online as soon it’s received by the Property Manager.
  • There is an insurance claim in progress which concerns only two homeowners, for instance a leak from the upstairs bathroom. The messenger system allows the owners to converse solely with the property manager for privacy.


And the list of easy and convenient communication scenarios goes on.

Not only does the right technology enhance the life of the residents, but also the Property Manager who no longer lives a work life of fire fighting and can focus on providing a pro-active service enhancing their customers’ home lives.

Digital transformation has seamlessly integrated into our daily routines, making life more convenient, efficient, and enjoyable. From smart home devices to online services, technology has simplified how we wake up, work, shop, stay healthy, and entertain ourselves.

Managing your home and property surroundings should be no different.
