48 hours later, and the SiteCompli team (yours truly, especially) is still recovering from this year’s awesome RealFocus!

From residential and commercial organizations to NYC institutions and specialty groups, nearly 300 professionals across the industry joined us for a full day of compliance and technology education.

Here’s just some of what RealFocus attendees experienced this week:

Over A Dozen Educational Seminars

Event guests chose from over 12 breakout sessions throughout the day, including guest presentations from the FDNY, Benchmarking Help Center, Department of Sanitation, and more. There were also two brand-new SiteCompli workshops focused on exploring SiteCompli’s Work Order system (including the mobile app), and ways to bring your entire building online.

Two sessions focused on some of SiteCompli’s most popular resources – crafting your own compliance checklist (you can find our starter for 2017 here) and reviewing some of the biggest trends in NYC violations (check out our Report on the city’s biggest infractions here).

Additionally, guests got real-time answers from some of the city’s top experts in administrative law, environmental regulations, energy compliance, and cooling towers/water systems.

A Sneak Peek Behind the Velvet Ropes

RealFocus folks got first word of SiteCompli’s most exciting announcement – InCheck, the newest tool for communication and collaboration across real estate management organizations, is here! InCheck helps you take operations beyond compliance, taking your everyday tasks from to-do to done.

SiteCompli’s Customer Advisory Board members got an up-close and personal look at InCheck from our Product team. Interested in checking it out? Sign up for an InCheck account, and be one of the first to try it as soon as it’s released.

Communicate with Ease

Too much of a property management team’s day is wasted with unnecessary follow-up and calling to chase down loose ends. With InCheck, your whole team knows what needs to be worked on, and you can see what other people have done. Get rid of the lost post it notes, missed emails, and old voicemails.

Control Your Day

See what’s next today, with a task list that tells you what to do HERE and NOW. When you walk into a building, InCheck instantly tells you what’s outstanding and what’s assigned to whom.

Say Goodbye to Missed Deadlines

InCheck reminds you of what needs to be done – before it’s too late. The answers to “who is following up?” and “when will it be done?” are in the palm of your hand, for every building.

Automate Your Operations

InCheck brings the power of AI and automation to your property management team. Implement pre-made or custom templates to define consistency throughout your organization. Your team will do better – without having to just constantly hire more people.

More Proactive & Productive

With InCheck, you’ll get things done faster, cheaper, and better. Auto-assign tasks to members of a team or many sequential tasks to different employees related to the same issue. InCheck makes sure that no one drops the ball.

Designed for Property Managers

The life of a property manager is unlike any other career. InCheck is designed by property managers, for property managers, with the ability to capture items on the go – via text, pictures or email – and report, export, and connect to the systems a property manager uses every day.
