Property management and accounting software integration
Property Management – what exactly is it?
Property management is the operation, control, maintenance, and oversight of real estate and physical property. This can include residential, commercial, and land real estate.
There is a fundamental difference between a real estate agent and a property management professional. Real estate agents may offer real estate management as a secondary service. Professional property managers, in contrast, are solely focused on managing your real estate portfolio and are dedicated to growing your investment. They analyze the performance of the individual investments and identify areas or opportunities, optimise the performance and grow the property value.
What Does Property Management Software Do?
Property management software provides an integrated solution for rental property investors and real estate managers to:
- rental spaces
- tenants contacts
- lease contracts
- utility calculations
- generate financial reports
- analyze their property portfolio overall performance.
It is very important to highlight that there is a major difference between the two types of properties – residential property and commercial property. All-size-fits-all solutions often do not solve the complex processes within commercial property management.
Online property management.
Professional real estate management.
Real property management software nowadays is mostly a cloud/online service, it allows landlords of small or large property portfolios to manage their processes from occupancy overview, utility calculations and exception handling to financial accounting and reporting.
There are various lease software platforms specialized in certain niche situations, such as small portfolios of single family homes, to large mixed commercial portfolios. So how to pick the right fit for you?
Online Real Estate Management Software criteria to consider
For picking the right tool for you, it is essential to explore the features for not only what your portfolio looks like today, but what you expect it to evolve into in the future.
The right property management solution should be designed to fit around the needs of the portfolio, big or small, with old or new buildings and for traditional long-term or flexible lease contracts management.
Will the platform you choose be able to grow with you? If so, is it affordable while you are still in the small portfolio phase? Moderan offers a flexible user-based pricing model that makes it suitable for both a 3.000 m² portfolio with one manager or a 300.000 m² portfolio with a whole dedicated team behind.

Who benefits from property management software?
The simple answer is: both sides – landlord and tenants – the end-to-end property property management software enables landlords to effectively manage operations and provide convenience to the tenants.
Property management accounting software
Many universal property management solutions aim to cover both sides of the real estate segment, commercial and residential real estate management. They try to do many things at once – including accounting. It may seem like a very good deal, but there is a BUT …
Often those solutions better fit for residential property management, due the specifics with residential contracts which are usually short term and pretty standard and easy to renew.
In contrast, commercial tenants lease management is complex and features a variety of exceptions and extension options. Only a commercial property manager is likely to understand such leases, and knows how to manage lease contract indexation of the appropriate amount on an annual basis. Right property management software should be able to solve those complex processes connected with commercial lease management contracts.
Therefore Moderan is focused on the CRE management, to be excellent in one main thing. That is: online property management tool for commercial real estate portfolio managers.
What Moderan offers and adds constantly, is the compatibility and integrations with other systems that you are already using for financial management: such as – your current accounting software.
