For larger communities, Buildium doesn’t have the accounting capabilities you need. Anything up to 100 units is easily managed and works well.

Property Matrix

Property Matrix has developed property management software that incorporates all the power of a highly technical accounting software with the conveniences of state-of-the-art check scanning capabilities. For years, I've struggled with the physical demands of check processing - receipt, delivery, recording and processing. Now I'm able to simplify all of these steps into just one encrypted scan. I'm also able to review every account from one convenient location - tenants, vendors, owners, accounts and check scanning are all accessible from the main screen. I'm able to review outstanding invoices, rent payments, management fees and so much more. It's very well suited for my business.

Property Matrix

  • I especially like the all-inclusive dashboard for accounting. Multiple tabs keep everything organized and accessible.
  • Customized reports are extremely important. This software allows me to set my own parameters instead of forcing me to used canned reporting data.
  • Real-time information allows me to always know what task is required next. It also helps me stay focused and never worry that I've forgotten something.
  • The cloud-based software provides access from any location and device. Now I can spend less time behind my desk and more time in the field where I'm needed.

Cons

Buildium

  • Buildium has done a great job over the last decade of developing software to keep pace with industry standards.
  • Buildium has room for improvement with the use of artificial intelligence to make repetitive processes more automated.

Property Matrix

  • I've found all aspects of this product to be exceptional for functionality, customization and flexibility. The only thing I've noticed is a limited range of easy-to-read background settings. There are 10 different themes, but all are blue and are a little difficult to read.

I have used three property management softwares and know of others who have used additional softwares for managing properties. Buildium seems to be the best of all of them

Once trained, I find that its usability is quite easy and comprehensive. If working on something I am less familiar with, I find that I can usually find the solution pretty quickly

I have been able to get through to support immediately and they have been awesome in quickly resolving issues. More importantly, their communication when there is an issue which might take some time to resolve surfaces. Getting updates and resolution are critical.

Alternatives Considered

Buildium

Appfolio is my favorite software, and they are constantly making improvements. Buildium is great if you don’t have a ton of property but is not as manageable for advanced accounting and resident information tracking. There are workarounds, but they do need to work on their ease of use for owners.

Return on Investment

Buildium

  • Eliminates processing paperwork, resulting in less paper and staff time and effort.
  • Eliminates payments via check, and the need to go to the bank along with processing fees.
  • Payments are more prompt due to options and communications.
Ann M. Frank | TrustRadius Reviewer

Property Matrix

  • The Property Matrix property management software has had a positive impact for on-time tenant payments. Before implementing this program, I often had to visit each tenant to collect rent payments. With digital check scanning and EBT payments available, my tenants rarely miss a payment.
  • Maintaining my accounting records through this software has improved my own efficiency and allows me to spend more time visiting tenants. I used to spend several hours a day doing data entry. I've now cut that time in half and can even record pertinent information from the road.
  • I'm a better manager with this software and am gaining more respect from my tenants, vendors and owners. With important data at my fingertips, I'm equipped with critical information precisely when I need it. Now when an owner asks for details about a building, I can confidently relay the information without delay.
