What's Gobbling Up Your Time?

Posted by Chris Kelsey on Nov 14, 2018 8:07:00 AM

I was re-watching Mad Men on Netflix the other night and looking at the portrayal of a 1960s office, with nothing more high-tech than typewriters and phones, I thought to myself, how did anyone get anything done back then? Late in the first season Sterling Cooper did get an Optimus Prime sized copy machine, but no computers, database, internet, software, API’s, etc. in sight. I probably shouldn’t judge productivity in the past while sitting on the couch watching hours of TV, but the thought occurred to me in this Netflix binge that 50 years later, a lot of offices might still be stuck in the past. Since Turkey Day is near, let’s consider how some tech trends fight what “gobbles” up our time at work:

Software in the Cloud, Keeps Money in the Bank

Posted by Sarah Sukta on Aug 8, 2018 2:24:13 PM

When it comes to technology and selecting software providers, it is extremely important to consider the cost of software. Equally important is assessing the true IT costs of your operation. Shopping for software comes with some degree of sticker shock, but if software can offset other IT costs, it might be well worth updating your budget and maybe earning a few extra rewards points/miles on your credit card. Let’s consider one key “must-have” when it comes to choosing software and ensuring a quicker return on investment: Cloud-computing. Below is a quick rundown on what it means to be “in the cloud” and why it is so critical in terms of cost-savings, and adding true value to your business.

Website vs. Portal - Differences Between the Two

Posted by Sarah Sukta on May 3, 2018 1:05:30 PM

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. I am asked all the time the difference between a portal and a website and I usually say something to this effect: A resident portal is a website, but a website is not necessarily a portal; it’s like the rhombus vs. square argument (the only thing I remember from geometry). To highlight the differences, here are quick definitions and a few more distinguishing features of websites and portals:

Technology for property management software has evolved. A growing number of managers are replacing pen and paper with tablets and smartphones on compliance rides and even HOA boards are discovering the benefits of association web portals with important functions, such as, online payments, homeowner accounts, eBlasts, and community calendars.
