W hen you’re a property manager, being a jack of all trades is a non-negotiable. You’re constantly juggling marketing and tenant satisfaction with scheduled maintenance and security, all while focusing on bottom line profitability. Clearly, it’s not a job for the weak.
As technology and automation continue to improve the way we work and communicate, it’s essential for property managers to embrace new ways of doing things that will ultimately make your job easier.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed with the influx of resident packages, you’ll be glad to know there’s help. Notifii package tracking software is designed to improve the way you track, log, and manage incoming packages while providing a better experience to your residents.
When packages arrive, use the package logging app to scan each one and notify residents immediately. You can use the software to track the package’s location in your office so you don’t have them stashed all around your lobby and leave them vulnerable to theft. And with the instant notification, residents can come to retrieve their packages sooner and free up valuable storage space.
