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.

3 Things You Need For Mobile Compliance

Posted by Sarah Sukta on Nov 9, 2016 7:33:00 AM

1. Must be truly mobile: 
Some compliance programs run in a mobile web-browser, which means that internet connection must be strong and uninterrupted for the program to function. An application that is “truly mobile” lives locally in the mobile device.  While true mobile applications may require internet connection to download data and synchronize captured violations, they offer the luxury of working even in rural, remote, or developing areas.  With browser-based mobile website applications, you run the risk of losing your work, or being unable to continue working when your connection is weak.  With a true mobile application, you have the stability and versatility of working offline and syncing with the main database later.

Website vs. Portal - Do You Know the Difference?

Posted by Sarah Sukta on Sep 28, 2016 7:15:00 AM

Sometimes the terms “website” and “portal” are used interchangeably, and this usage isn’t entirely inaccurate but do you really know the difference between website vs portal? By definition, a website is a location on the internet that is unique and which is accessed via a web browser using a specific URL (web address). Portals are also accessed via a web browser and specific URL, but content is login protected and user-specific.
