BuildingsNY Show Recap: Your 5 Most-Pressing Questions, Answered!
At the BuildingsNY show March 21-22, we spoke with hundreds of property managers, supers, compliance professionals, developers and construction professionals. They had tough compliance questions, and we had answers – many of which are applicable to anyone working in property management today. Read on for the most frequently asked questions we received at the show and how these issues may affect your buildings.
- How can I make dealing with tenants easier?
Breaking “The 311 Cycle” is incredibly important for running an efficient property management operation. When tenants feel frustrated, or unable to reach you, often they resort to calling 311 and lodging complaints, which turn into HPD inspections, which turn into headaches for your staff.
At BuildingsNY, SiteCompli unveiled our Tenant Communications suite, which automatically triages, organizes, and manages tenant requests 24/7, increasing tenant satisfaction and communication efficiency without burdening your staff.
