ApnaComplex substantially improved realization of timely maintenance payment and past dues

Mr. Pankaj, committee member of Fern Saroj Apartments in Bangalore wrote to us today on how ApnaComplex.com streamlined the finances in the society :)

At Fern Saroj, we adopted ApnaComplex in August 2013.I am happy to say that within 2 months period we migrated our current fiscal accounts to the portal.

It has drastically improved our communication with residents on money matters and has also substantially improved realization of timely maintenance payment and recovery of past dues.

This was possible due to very easy access to accounting records. Paper work is now literally zero.

Must also add, that the support from ApnaComplex has been excellent with first human response always coming in within 15 minutes. Way to go !

We are super charged up after receiving this note! Thank you so much!

ApnaComplex has helped us streamline our communications, consolidate our materials and improve our management of the community

Ms. Camaron Vallepalli, committee member of Adarsh Vista Villa Owners Association, a 200 unit villa community in Bangalore wrote to us today how ApnaComplex.com helps their community 🙂

We have been using ApnaComplex for about 7 months now and we are very happy with service and the product. We did extensive research before deciding to use ApnaComplex and we have never regretted our decision. We are a smaller community that is entirely run by volunteers. Using ApnaComplex has helped us streamline our communications, consolidate our materials and improve our management of the community. There are two features in particular that have been very beneficial to us: community SMS and the payment portal.

We use community SMSs to give warnings about disruptions in services as well as to inform people about upcoming meetings and events. This has been a huge help as people now feel they get timely updates on important information.

The use of the payment portal has allowed us to greatly reduce the number of hours we used to spend going door to door to collect payments from individual owners. It has also facilitated timely payments from owners who do not live in the city or even in the country.

Finally, we would like to mention that the support we have received from ApnaComplex has been tremendous. Every time we have a question or a suggestion it is taken up in a very effective manner.

We are very pleased with ApnaComplex and look forward to utilizing even more features to further improve our community!

We are super delighted to receive this note! Thank you so much!

Major Updates to Parking Lots and Vehicle Management

ApnaComplex Vehicle and Parking Lot Management Module now has been significantly enhanced. Some of the key enhancements include:

1. Ability to Map Parking Lot to Flats: Before the enhancement, it was possible to associate a parking lot with a flat only if there is a vehicle. With the enhancement, you can now associate parking lots to flats with out any vehicles. You can do this mapping for every flat one after another OR import the mapping data into ApnaComplex portal using an excel (the excel template can be downloaded from within the portal).

2. Ability to “Enforce” mapping of parking lots with units: A new setting will control if the mapping needs to be enforced in the society. When enforced, no vehicle can be added into the portal with out the flat having the parking lot mapped. When not enforced, vehicles can be added to the parking lot with out even being mapped to a flat.

3. Introducing Number of Vehicles per Parking Lot: There is a distinct need in quite a few societies to allow more than one number of vehicles in a parking lot (for example, multiple two wheelers parked in single parking lot). All along we had a implicit restriction of one vehicle per parking lot. That’s changed now and admins can configure how many maximum vehicles are allowed to be associated with a parking lot.

With these enhancements, almost all societies can customize Vehicle / Parking lot module to implement their respective rules and policies.


Better Looking Scheduled Reports in your E-Mail

ApnaComplex scheduled reports is one of the most unique and widely used feature across all our customer base.

All along the reports were looking ‘dull’ in the few email clients compared to when viewed in the portal. Not any more!

We have now enhanced the emails we send with reports to be more ‘beautiful’ and to be same as what is seen on the portal. Those who have daily reports scheduled, should have seen the changes already and we are sure you are loving it 🙂


Maintenance Staff Enhancements: Agency name and tagging for Helpdesk Operations

Directory of Maintenance Staff in ApnaComplex is used at multiple modules in ApnaComplex – with primary usage being in Attendance Tracking and Complaint Box modules. We have enhanced maintenance staff directory to now optionally capture Agency Name to which the staff belongs to. When the society has multiple agencies, this helps in tracking the attendance of the staff of a particular agency and process the payment to the agency much easier.

In addition, we also have added a new tag to indicate if a particular maintenance staff attends to complaints. For example, if the society has 10 landscaping staff working in the association, not all of them would probably need be receiving complaints and working on them. Some of them would just be doing regular preventive maintenance activities. You can now tag who will be part of helpdesk – this reduces the clutter in the complaint box when assigning tickets.
