AMTdirect

I think for medium to large companies AMTDirect would be invaluable to have the "whole" picture of all properties at your finger tips. For smaller companies with 10 or fewer properties maybe not as "necessary".

A single company, with a few units (under 50) would work well with Buildium. Everyone else, no.

Pros

  • AMTDirect allows for customization to your specific needs in a snapshot. One area I appreciate is that I am able to change most labels/field names to coincide with our specific naming conventions.
  • AMTDirect has wonderful support. They respond very quickly and I always feel that I am important and matter to them.
  • AMTDirect is always interested in what I would like to see added to be even more useful to my needs. They listen to me and strive to make those changes.

  • It documents the date and time of all updates and communications, which are essential to the companys records.
  • It allows external clients to communicate and stay in touch with our company, as well as access information.
  • It serves as a large database for all of our customer and client information that is very user-friendly.

Cons

  • Initially when I started using AMTDirect it was a little overwhelming because it is a lot of detail. At times I would like to see it a little more simplified. However, I will say they have over the past 6 years done that exactly. It is becoming more simplified to use, but with the same important outcomes.
  • The software is much faster than it was when I initially started using it. Some of that might be resolved if there were some drag and drop type situations more I think.

  • The emailing feature is difficult to use.
  • We are not able to update buildium directly of our communications, so we must manually input our email communications.
  • We are not able to upload files larger than 12 MB.

Usability

AMTdirect8.2
Based on 1 answer
From my experience, AMTDirect does have a bit of a learning curve, but once you pass that curve the system has details and information that are vital to the decision process of lease negotiations, lease & facilities management as well as project management. I've said it a thousand times, AMTDirect is the only reason I am able to manage 50+ retail spaces by myself with regards to all of the above decisions.

I have not listened to any of the on-line video or webinars, but I have used the "help" guides and they are very easy to understand and for the most part that is how I have taught myself to use features I have never utilized before.

AppFolio manages more units better, AppFolio is frustrating because it constantly opens a new window

Return on Investment

  • AMTDirect has positively impacted our company for the simple fact that 1 person is able to handle 54 properties with regards to lease management, maintenance/repair and projects for those locations. We were at the point of needing to hire additional help, but AMTDirect has made it possible to delay hiring additional employees until we grow a little more.
  • AMTDirect has made it possible to be able for me to work from any where and not in an office with a bunch of files, because the information is at my fingertips. I am able to travel to our stores and still be able to take care of issues and answer important and at times timely questions.

  • Buildium creates ledgers that include any missed payments so we are able to keep track of these instances, and collect payment.
  • Buildium allows me to get more timely responses in my department, through task management and reminders.
