Advantos News

by: Bill Haskett, President

Looking Forward to Advantos news.The last two quarters have been busy for us in the development and implementation departments. We are nearing completion of the next version of Advantos v7. The enhancement will allow users to use any browser, including Apple's Safari. When complete, we will make this upgrade to our current and new customers, which will involve no interruption of service. We'll notify everyone before this upgrade is ready.

We have completed upgrading our Hometastic application to version 4. This version has a different look and feel within the administration tool. This new version is presently being tested and should be ready in the first quarter of 2014. Again, all or our customers will be notified before the upgrade takes place. Again, there should be no interruption of service.

We are continually working to upgrade current customers. Our office and apartment functionality has been updated and is being tested. This completed version should be available in the next quarter. If you haven't upgraded to the new BackOffice product, give us a call to arrange a quick review of the new product features and to schedule your upgrade. Your conversion can usually be done over a week-end and training is minimal.

Our upgrade schedule has been increased as customers are offering suggestions while they upgrade to our version 7 offering.

Our Clients Ask Questions.

See what our clients are asking. One of our customers asks, "Our auditors want a postings report thay can manipulate in their own software." Is there documentation on how to do this?" Yes. Here's the link to Advantos Help.

A postings detail report is simply the G/L Detail Postings report that is downloaded into a ".csv" file, which is opened and managed by Excel. This allows the management company to provide auditors with pretty much any data they want and the auditor can do anything they want with the data, which becomes the auditors problem, not the management companies.

Using Advantos to Improve Your Business Success

Using Advantos to improve your business success. Advantos software was designed to work as the core of a property management business. All the processes are designed to assist the management company to be more efficient, resulting in improved profitability. One of the many available features are the HOMETASTIC websites. Are you using them to improve your relationship with your client boards and owners and enhance staff efficiency?

The HOMETASTIC websites are designed to be an electronic bulletin board and a communication tool for the Boards and the management company. Information is posted there by the management company and is available to owners and board members, based on a security level. Being able to direct people to the site for information reduces office contacts--fewer phone calls, emails and drop ins. Recently, we have heard from several clients that they are setting up sections on client sites for real estate agents and rental managers to access information. This has assisted with providing information without the usual interruption and redirection of staff time. Another use for the site is to have information available for renters, especially compliance standards and house rules. Providing these documents has helped landlords and rental managers direct renters to information that will improve compliance results.
