Rent Manager boasts a wide array of features for property managers in its software packages. The standard features are there – general ledger, online bill pay, tenant screening – but Rent Manager also offers more advanced feature such as web site integration and mobile capabilities in the form of a smartphone app. However, many of these advanced features, such as the resident portal and online bill pay, are only available in the Rent Manager Online edition. None of the Rent Manager products integrate with Quickbooks.

Technology

Rent Manager comes in two different deployment models – web-based (Rent Manager Online) and on-premise (Rent Manger Enterprise, Professional and Small Business). The online edition is ideal for companies that require remote access to their systems or have multiple offices that need access. Users of the on-premise versions of Rent Manager can simultaneously access the system over the same local area network. Rent Manager’s technology has allowed LCS to create a number of optional modules that interface with the software, such as check scanning, meter reading and prospect management.
