Fall into eUnify

Posted by Sarah Sukta on Sep 29, 2021 8:00:00 AM

eUnify’s main office is located in the suburbs of Phoenix, Arizona, which means that the advent of Fall is a long-awaited reprieve from triple digit heat and the start of chemically derived “pumpkin-spice” additives to be available on Starbucks menus. For places with actual seasons, Fall is a beautiful time of transition, with colorful leaves, crisp air, chunky sweaters, and boots. For HOAs, Fall is an important and busy season of budgets, elections, and messy yards to deal with. Consider how eUnify can help you manage each of these activities:

Leveraging the CommunityLink Homeowner Portal

Posted by Sarah Sukta on Jul 21, 2021 8:15:00 AM

Leveraging the CommunityLink homeowner portal has emerged as a recurring theme which basically comes down to building content. Think about your favorite news site. You probably visit it a couple times a day. If content isn’t constantly refreshed, you are easily bored and unlikely to peruse outdated headlines. While announcements, events, and documents in your community portal are slower to change than the day’s headlines, building a library of content will encourage homeowners to come to the portal site more often. Here are some ideas for maximizing usage of the eUnify CommunityLink portal:

Contactless Options are Here to Stay

Posted by Chris Kelsey on Jul 7, 2021 8:14:02 AM

One important word has come to represent a new standard in business operations, “contactless”. Food service have evolved to minimize person-to-person contact by offering sealed takeout packaging, contactless delivery, and curbside pickup. We often hear experts and local leaders state we are safest at home, and as many of us stay home more than ever before, it makes sense that the communities in which we reside are also considering ways to adapt to this new reality. eUnify is constantly evolving to address industry needs. Here are some of the ways we are helping you provide contactless service to your communities.

HOAs and Summer Storms

Posted by Chris Kelsey on Jun 23, 2021 7:45:00 AM

In preparation for Arizona's monsoon season and  (More 2021 Monsoon Details here)

Phoenicians look forward to monsoon with the eagerness of NASCAR-goers awaiting a car crash. There’s beauty in the destructive power of the unpredictable storms in this season. Two of my brothers who now live out of state plan visits during the annual monsoon season to satisfy a nostalgic craving for the theatrics of mile-high walls of dust, fierce lightning, and flash flooding, along with the thrill of waiting to see how much force nature will unleash. Just last night, the first of these cracked open the skies with an impressive lightning show, rain, and microbursts of wind. I had dinner with a friend and stopped for a second leaving the restaurant to take in the gorgeous yet ominous sunset with a storm looming in the distance, and then got in my car and thought nothing of it. I made it home before even the air stirred. As soon as I was home, I got a message from my friend whose house apparently was in the path of a microburst while we were at dinner. The message said, “OMG, the pool! It’s brown and there’s half a tree in it!”.

Cool for the Summer

Posted by Sarah Sukta on Jun 2, 2021 8:15:00 AM

I run hot. On a recent flight, after politely asking the flight attendant if he could lower the cabin temperature, he asked if I was “going through the change”. I told him the answer was whatever it needed to be in order to cool off the plane. Given my temperature sensitivity, I probably shouldn’t be living in Phoenix, but calling this place home for so many years has helped me learn some tricks to keeping cool. As it relates to our homes, staying cool for the summer is easy, just think cool colors, like green and blue:

Spring Cleaning with Community Link and uManage

Posted by Sarah Sukta on Apr 14, 2021 8:30:00 AM


Property managers and HOA Boards often get a bad rap because most of the communication with homeowners skews negative, such as, “you painted your house the wrong color and now you must redo all of it!”, or “hurry up and pull those weeds!”  While these messages to homeowners for compliance issues are necessary for community maintenance, often they are interpreted as personal attacks, or at least a nuisance.  With the warmer spring weather, homeowners are usually more interested in beautifying their homes, which presents a great opportunity to property managers for positive reinforcement.  Here are some ideas on how to use uManage and the eUnify homeowner portal - Community Link to facilitate positive community yard campaigns:

Work Remotely with eUnify

Posted by Sarah Sukta on Mar 10, 2021 7:45:00 AM

eUnify enables remote working. Terms we wouldn’t have used much in the recent past are part of our everyday vocabulary. Terms like, “social distancing”, “quarantine”, and “flattening the curve” describe a social duty to keep distance from everyone outside our households in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus. These terms also represent a massive challenge to many businesses. Major corporations have invested billions of dollars in the past several weeks in updating systems to allow for as many employees as possible to work from home.

In conversations with eUnify clients recently, best practices for leveraging the CommunityLink homeowner portal has emerged as a recurring theme. I have observed clients utilize the portal with varying degrees of success and have come up with a short list of ideas for making the most of the community portal.
