  1. Mobile App

    Rentec website is not very mobile friendly. Would love a deticated mobile app with a simple interface. Would like it to be easier to view maintenance requests, send tenant/owner emails or SMS.

    • 360 photos for marketing

      Zinspector was a great partnership. They recently update to add a 360 picture to their inspections. We bought this camera and it is great for inspections, but it's not just for zinspector. We have been able to use the pictures on facebook for a 360 degree tour for marketing. It would be good if somehow these 360 pictures would work on our marketing info page within Rentec

        • Sync Rentec w/ezLandlord

          The ability to sync RenTec with EzZLandlord forms would greatly simplify sending notices to tenants.

          • Changes Needed

            Lots of ideas,
            First for new landlords posting hundreds of tenant property data, you need much larger buttons to click, some you have to get the mouse exactly on the center of the X for it to work, i know thats crazy but it takes a lot of time when doing hundreds of entries.

            Next, you need an EDIT ALL TENANTS button, that should be a given. Its rediculous for us to go to hundreds of tenants one by one to make a simple change.

            Finally, you need a sort button for tenants also. I just put addresses in for…

              • Recurring Work Orders for preventative maintenance

                Allow work orders to be recurring for preventative maintenance. (Example- Changing air filters, test batteries, clean gutters, quarterly walk through).

                Use similar interface as the "recurring charge" function.

                • Text/ email when a text comes through Rentec

                  It would be great to add functionality that would notify when text messages come in. This could be done by sending an email each time that a text gets a reply or by doing a forward to a text number. This would help utilize this platform for communication with tenants better and keep all the information housed in one spot.

                    Add CAM Pool for owners. ie: Well maintenance cost is split between tenant and owner. Tenant has CAM expense but owner or property does not.

                    • Mobile friendly

                      When generating a report on a mobile device, specifically an iPhone, you can not scroll the page that pops up. When you try to scroll to the bottom of a long report, it moves the background page and not the report window that pops up. This makes the bottom of any long pop up page impossible to see. Also, please make the bottons and links larger. Im guessing most people use this software on their phone to quickly mark rent collected and capture expenses. I constantly have to zoom in and scroll around on different parts of every page to…

                                    • A WAY TO TRACK INVENTORY

                                      I buy a lot of inventory that I may not use right away. It would be nice to have a way to track that inventory. A place to put the charge for accounting purposes until it is actually used and can be expensed to the property. An automated way so that when entered in inventory with relevant price and tax information you wouldnt have to enter it again just move that particular item to the property when used. That would help out alot!!!

                                        Due to the fact it takes 7 days for rent to make it to use, we don't allow tenants to pay late on easypay. Otherwise we are disbursing money that we don't actually have yet and could still bounce. At the current time we have to go in and disable easy pay for anyone that is late. Then reactivate when they are caught up.

                                        • bare bones iphone app

                                          Please build an iphone app! Just a bare bones way to get tenant name/phone and possible send messages to tenants through the system would be a huge help.
