Real Estate/ Property Management Adminuser
In the real estate world, you have to keep a lot of information straight. Downtime for your network could mean delays in payments and major loss of productivity across your entire company.
If you’re like a lot of developers, construction firms, and property management companies, you most likely do not have an IT department. An entire department devoted to keeping your network up and running is the kind of expense that most companies like yours simply cannot justify. However, you do need some assistance in this area if you want to minimize downtime, ensure the security of your clients’ and investors’ payment information, and keep your business running smoothly.
Determine Your IT Needs
So how much IT support do construction, development, and property management firms need? This depends a great deal on your particular company, your specialization(s) within your field, and what kind of role technology takes in your business.
For example, a property management company will have to keep track of tenants and owners, as well as property maintenance budgets, tax information, etc. A small construction company will need to keep track of budgets for each of their sites, investors’ information, and some other figures, but will not have quite the same kind of IT needs. So how can you determine which IT services you’ll need on a regular basis?
We highly recommend scheduling a free IT assessment of your business. This initial step allows your IT consulting team to get a detailed look at the health of your IT environment and infrastructure. As experts in their field, they’ll be able to find any flaws or weaknesses in your network security and to determine what kind of maintenance, repairs, and upgrades you might need, as well.
Also, if you have a lot of employees who work remotely and/or you need access to files and work-related applications on work sites, you’ll most likely want to opt for Desktop as a Service and cloud-based servers to allow your employees remote access whenever and wherever they happen to be. This makes transitions between construction sites and/or managed properties completely pain-free and allows you and your employees full access to everything you need wherever you happen to be.
Take Advantage of Cloud-Based Services
The days of architects and building planners laying out paper blueprints at work sites will soon be a distant memory. We live in the world of AutoDesk and AutoCAD. We have the ability to have plans, outlines, blueprints, and building codes at our fingertips on almost any mobile device. With cloud-based services, like Desktop as a Service (DaaS) and cloud-based servers, you and your employees can have access to all of those documents and more, whether you’re on a job site, at the office, or at home.
If an emergency occurs on a job site, you may not even have to go to the site, let alone your office, to fix it when you can pull up your DaaS software and access all of your files stored in a cloud-based server. Plus, off-site, cloud-based storage is highly secure and provides backups for information stored on your office servers, as well.
