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.

Well suited for owners or regional mangers who need to check it and have data quick at hand. Small single owned buildings this is not a fit for

  • Very strong for facilities management, being able to detail time and cost expenditures and identify problems is huge!
  • Budget and collection reports are easily readable and update from the data quickly and efficiently.

  • Licensing is sometimes a problem, though the company is friendly about using trial accounts
  • Program often hangs on mobile devices

  • Navigating can be a little difficult at times. You definitely need training to find what you are looking for, and the many capabilities are buried within the many modules.
  • I wish it were more seamless to import data from Excel rather than keying it all in.
  • It has a few minor technical difficulties when multiple users are working on the same thing and does not warn you that multiple people are accessing the same thing.

Alternatives Considered

Each of the above have good features. I simply believe that AppFolio is the BEST I have ever used.

I and my company have only used Yardi. I am with a 2-year-old start-up now, but the person who chose to use Yardi here used it for 20 years previously. With a track record like that, I assume it is hard to beat!

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.

  • I am not aware of the hard numbers, but Yardi's digital capabilities have saved not only physical storage space of keeping paper files but also the high-valued time of employees to organize such files.
  • While it saves time being able to access everything in one database, the difficulties in navigation can make it time-consuming to really find what you need.
