Likelihood to Recommend

AppFolio

I would recommend the program to anyone that does property management. The search features and user-friendliness of the program alone has helped functionality of our company greatly. Their support is great and replies in a timely manner. Appfolio overall has helped our company be more productive and reach more customers locally and internationally with streamlined processes that have been great time savers.

Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate

The Sage 300 product is well designed for construction and real estate companies where the job costing module is very beneficial for the business. Other industries can also use Sage 300, however, there might be more appropriate systems that can be better suited for some industries. The reporting modules need improvement.

Both ERP systems are great for construction and real estate companies. They both have job costing modules that are essential for our business. We bought a company that has Sage 300 X3 however we decided to use Sage 300 ERP instead. I believe the X3 is a better system however the executives did not want to change the head office system.

Return on Investment

  • AppFolio has converted prospective clients to actual clients once they saw how my company could use the program to communicate with on-site property management teams and improve the communication and budgeting process.
  • AppFolio is expensive, especially for a small company, so that may have had some negative impact on the ROI.
  • Overall, AppFolio has also helped improve our ability as a company to communicate with asset manager levels.
