Rentec Direct

Take a look at what we’re currently working on at Rentec. Please share your ideas and stories to help us build a product that best fits your needs.

How can we make the Rentec Direct property management software and tenant screening platform better?

  1. Integrate with Bill.com

    If we open the API or import the Bill.com (AP data) into Rentec that would be great. Eliminate manual entries after reconciliation with the bank.

  3. Work order App for Maintenance crews

    An app for Maintenance crews to access and process work orders. Having to sign in on a mobile browser is daunting for my more techno phobe maintenance crew but a simple app would be front and center and easy.

  4. Apartment Complex Support add sub buildings

    Need support for apartment complexes. Need to be able to make a apartment complex as a main complex. Then I need to be able to add multiple sub buildings with multiple sub units. This way I can run reports for the entire complex. Current options make no sense.

  5. see info in notes box

    where you update lease expiration, i entered info on upcoming info concerning future rents in “notes” , but then once i save i dont see that info in the notes box-i have to go find it under different tab “notes”—it would be better to see it here too.

  8. Automatically splitting payments

    When splitting a payment or credit, automatically alter the remainder. For example, $1000 payment split in two; first set gets $350 and automatically populate the other for $650 to sum up to the total. For three or more splits (mortgage costs divided between PITI) go hierarchically: $1000 split in 4 ways, first user input is $200, automatically populate the 2nd with $800 and blanks for the rest.
    Or, even better is to see what the pattern is for payments of this type in the past (mortgages do not really change much) so automatically populate the fields with past data if…

  9. Owner Portal: Need more Details in Workorders

    In the owner's online portal, we need the closed workorders to be included under the properties' tab under the individual property itself. Also they need to have the final cost associated with that workorder to show up in the individual workorder. This is very confusing to our owners as they have to search for the cost and the list of work in 2 to 3 different locations in the portal. It is frustrating to them and us. Could you please incorporate this into Rentec's system?

  11. Put the "Display As" on the initial "Expense" page

    I really would like for you guys the "display as" option to the initial "expense" page instead of having to save the expense and then go back in to change the display as or possibly use the memo as the display as. I think the first way would be the much better option. It would really cut down on unnecessary steps.

  12. Running Balance when we download Tenant ledger

    When I email the downloaded ledger to my lawyer for an eviction, I need a running balance. Right now only the credits and debits come up no balance column like we see on the website.

  13. Date Availability on Marketing List

    It would be nice to be able to have a field with the actual date of availability of the property on the marketing list page so the information will be auto populated on the website.

  14. Security Deposit Return Statement- Notification/Reminder

    Something that many other management programs are doing for their clients that is extremely helpful, is when moving a tenant out, a separate notification will appear on your home/summary screen regarding the security deposit. This notification will remain up until you process their security deposit, and manually go in and close this. Companies such as Buildium and AppFolio have this integrated into their programs and it is an extremely helpful reminder that you need to process the security deposit return statement if you have not done so yet.

  15. Owner Portal not in 'real time'

    Change Owner Portal access to show statement, previous statements and other info without having access be in 'real time'. If property expenses are added but not paid yet and any changes being made any owner can see them. It should be an option to 'Push' to owner portal the information when the statement is done for the given month instead of constant real time access.

  16. Allocate an Expense Across Numerous Properties

    It would be nice if you had a function that allowed you to automatically spread expenses across multiple parties either by % of rent or evenly across them.

  17. Custom Text Box Data Field

    While using electronic forms it would be very useful to have a Custom data field such as a text box field and a check box field . This could be used to enter information that pertains to single property vs now having to edit the lease template.

  18. Allow some properties to be omitted from reports on multiple properties

  20. hold back at time of owner disbursements

    The way the software handles owner hold backs, is cumbersome. The workaround described in HELP is not usable.
    A property manager should be able to hold back, say $300, for a planned bill to arrive. When you pay owners, it does not give you an option to override the amount.
    My suggestion, if you want to make this usable by more property managers, it to allow this amount to be overridden at time of paying owners proceeds.
