For the past several years we have used Buildium to manage our portfolio, but it does not perform all of the functions that we would like. Every year we consider a switch to another program, but the switch can be difficult and some platforms are built on old technology. Now that Buildium has announced that it is being acquired by Real Page, owner of Propertyware, we are considering a fresh look at a new platform before it is forced upon us.
I would be interested in hearing of anybody’s experience in switching from something like Buildium or Appfolio to something like, PropertyWare, Yardi or Rent Manager. In particular, are you happy with the switch, did you get better control over your processes, and is the system easy to configure and use?
