SANTA BARBARA, Calif., June 08, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AppFolio, Inc. (NASDAQ:APPF), a leading provider of cloud-based business software solutions in the property management and legal markets, today announced the availability of the new AppFolio Property Manager mobile app. AppFolio Property Manager now offers its entire suite of features ranging from accounting to marketing within the mobile app, available for download now on iOS and Android devices.
The new AppFolio Property Manager mobile app offers enhanced functionality for mobile devices and is designed for the modern manager, enabling full access to the same features available through AppFolio’s cloud-based property management software. With this new app, property management professionals benefit from secure access to their entire database from anywhere, enabling their teams to quickly fill vacancies, communicate easily with vendors, owners and tenants, track maintenance work, run reports and more; and their customers benefit from features such as convenient mobile payment options, a streamlined move-in and move-out process, and the ability to respond quickly to maintenance requests.
This enhanced functionality came about in response to the ever-increasing need for property management professionals to be mobile. In the first quarter of 2016, AppFolio has seen logins via a mobile device increase 140 percent over the prior quarter, and AppFolio believes this is only the beginning of a major shift in the digitization of property management.
“In the near future, we think mobile will be the primary way people interact in real estate,” said Nat Kunes, Vice President of Product Management at AppFolio. “After an influx of apps built for one-off capabilities, we’re seeing progressive companies across the board move towards offering a single app. AppFolio is proud to be a first mover in the real estate industry, hitting the app store with what we believe is the most mobile friendly solution in property management.”
AppFolio Property Manager App includes:
- Marketing & Leasing: find and attract residents fast with professional websites, vacancy advertising, mobile rental applications, built-in resident screening and mobile lease agreements.
- Management: work orders and owner statements, mobile rent collection, rent comparison, free ratio utility billing, mobile inspections, training and support and 24/7 property management answering service.
- Accounting: reporting, bank reconciliation and payment to owners.
Customers are quickly adopting AppFolio’s more sophisticated mobile functionality. In beta, the AppFolio Property Manager mobile app received a 4.7 rating (out of 5.0) from early users. “As a property manager in the booming real estate hub of Salt Lake City, the time-saving features from AppFolio help us provide better customer service to our residents and keep headcount down. Full access to AppFolio solutions in an all-in-one app has become a lifeline for us,” said Ned Skanchy, owner of Urban Hive Properties.
