New Year, New Software Part II: Transparency

Posted by Chris Kelsey on Jan 19, 2022 7:30:00 AM

Welcome back to our New Year, New Software series.  To recap from last week, eUnify operates on a model of continual deployment, which means we never stop developing, and we never consider our products to be “finished”. Once or twice every month, a raft of new features, enhancements, and bug fixes is floated to our client base. Our constant commitment to improvement makes us the perfect partner to help you set and achieve important goals. The following is just a sampling of the enhancements we released in the past few months alone towards transparency.  Here is Part II.

eUnify, The Gift That Keeps on Giving

Posted by Sarah Sukta on Dec 1, 2021 8:00:00 AM

eUnify believes in the adage that it is better to give than to receive. Skipping a full Christmas analogy, let’s simply say we have a “workshop” of dedicated developers, who really wouldn’t like being compared to elves, constantly updating and improving our products. While Christmas comes but once a year, the eUnify workshop turns out new “toys” every 2-3 weeks, striving to continually give to our clients in the following ways:

Hard to believe (still in pandemic and all) that we are hurdling towards the holiday season and will soon be arrive at 2022, armed with New Year’s resolutions that we may or may not keep.

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:

Posted by Sarah Sukta on Sep 8, 2021 7:54:00 AM

Elections bring with it challenges inherent to neighborhood politics. Changes in dues, reshuffling of the HOA board, and ballot measures to amend governing documents or approve projects all carry the potential for charged emotions and political interest. On top of all that, there are the basic logistics of producing and sending out mailers to homeowners. In order to alleviate some of the headache that comes with elections, online voting is gaining popularity, and rules surrounding online election requirements are being detailed in state legislatures around the country.

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.
