SimplifyEm

Property Management for property managers & landlords

About SimplifyEm

SimplifyEm is a property management solution that helps property managers and landlords who are looking to more efficiently manage their properties. Users are able to easily track income and expenses on each of their properties, stay on top of tenant balances, charge fees, collect payments online and communicate with tenants through notices and tenant portals.

Larger property managers and landlords can streamline their time consuming processes by automating many of their day-to-day tasks. They can automatically account for expenses and calculate fees each month, collect payments, send late rent notices and many other statements via the automation center. This significantly reduces the manual effort required to manage their properties each and every month.

Repairs and work orders can be tracked through the task center, giving users a single place to track and update them, as well as a calendar to see what’s coming up. Maintenance requests can also be sent by tenants through their portals. Users can track all communication history with tenants, owners and vendors, and attach all relevant documents to tenants, owners, transactions, and more.

SimplifyEm allows users to generate a variety of detailed business reports, and automatically export all transactions to Excel or QuickBooks. Banking features allow users to manage bank accounts, reconciliations, as well as print checks.

    Need to write a check to a vendor? Click. Need to enter a check from a tenant Click. Need to generate a report combining rent, repairs and other factors so you can know where your profit and loss is? Click. Really it’s a fantastic software works for landlords like me.

    Pros

    SimplifyEm is really, simply fantastic—for landlords like me, mostly because SimplifyEm makes the mundane automatic, and the difficult simple. There are many factors, every day, that I have to deal with, and SimplifyEm combines the all. Everything is connected. The system alerts you to a whole host of things, so you can see at a glance what tenants have paid, which are currently late for rent, which repair tasks are open, and various other factors.

    Cons

    The software enables export to QuickBooks and transactions to a spreadsheet. In future, I hope it enables export of all reports to spreadsheets

    I really liked this software and it was a close second to Rentec Direct. I chose Rentec Direct because of the maintenance capability, rent paying and marketing aspects that was a good fit for our portfolio. Also, Rentec Direct was a little cheaper in price but after the demo, I would have been happy with Simplify Em too!

    Pros

    I was demo-ing property management software everyday for 2 weeks. It came down to Simplify Em and Rentec Direct. I loved them both and fit our needs as a small start up company.

    Cons

    Not all the features are user friendly but the customer service dept quickly and efficiently handled all issues!

    Response from SimplifyEm.com

    We had a lot of trouble setting up the system and needed to contact support regularly. They were helpful, but it was still extra work to have to do that. I explained the difficulty I had with the rental process and told them that I didn't want to use SimplyfyEm anymore and wanted a refund. I was told that since I was past the 30 day refund period, they wouldn't give me my money back. I explained that the issue with the application didn't happen until a unit was vacant, which was past the 30 days. After my initial conversation with support, they never returned my messages or calls. I emailed the [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] and again, giving them a chance to respond and make things right, but heard no response.

    I am overall disappointed with the product. I switched to Buildium and have been very happy with their product and system.

    Pros

    I appreciated the support team. They were usually very responsive.

    Cons

    I tried to send the application to potential tenants when I had a vacancy. Of the 41 applications I sent out, I only received 2 back. I had to go back through all who had contacted me and ask support to send them a special link. After trying to figure this out for a week, I used my old application and sent it out to around 18 people. Withing 12 hours I had 6 responses and within 48 hours, I had 12 responses. Less than a week later I had the apartment rented out. I was concerned at this point with the rest of the system if it didn't produce results for the basic function of sending and receiving an application. The product simply didn't work.

    I’ve been very satisfied with it so far to be honest. It’s been a pleasure using it and it's
    super intuitive. I do property management professionally with another company and I use
    this for my personal business and this is more intuitive and easy to figure out. Again
    they are able to create any clarity if there are any issues or questions.

    Pros

    The ease of use is the best. Compared to Quickbooks, they aren’t a property
    management platform, you have to massage it into a property management platform and
    Simplifyem is built for property management. The look, feel, and tabs are all spelled out
    for and designed for property management whereas Quickbooks is not.

    Cons

    I don’t have a lot, and it's super minor. I would love to be able to track HOA violations. I
    cannot find any major pet peeves. If there's anything I can't figure out, SimplifyEm is
    always there to help.

    My bookkeeper has everything in Quickbooks, but I have no idea how to get a meaningful report.
    This program makes it easy to see how each and every property performs.

    Pros

    Ease of use. I am a visual type person.
    Tracks everything and gives me relevant reports.
    Let's me see which properties are the better performers and helps me fine tune the others.

    Cons

    Not all functions are obvious. I've had to call tech support a few times, but they were great at walking me through it.
