ApnaComplex Enhancement: Staff can now be part of Groups in your Society!

In ApnaComplex, you are aware that every society can have unlimited number of mailing lists or sub-groups as a part of the Community Collaboration Tools. All along you were able to add owners or residents of the society to these sub-groups. We now have enhanced this feature so that you can add Staff to any of the groups!

This key enhancement opens up lots of new possibilities – such as ability to create a staff only mailing list, ability to include your estate manager on a cultural event discussions, or the accountant on NEFT notifications!

The staff can initiate or respond to the discussions over email and the same gets recorded in the portal similar to what happens when a owner/resident posts.

Bring your residents and staff together, with ApnaComplex!

ApnaComplex Accounting Enhancement: Income head-wise Advance Payments

ApnaComplex released a major enhancement to the accounting package that makes it possible for treasurers and accountants to record head wise advance payments from members.

In the past..

ApnaComplex already has the following capability of recording Advance Payments (a.k.a Excess Payments) from Members: For example, consider a member having dues of Rs. 1800/-, but the member has made payment of Rs. 2000/-. In ApnaComplex you can record the additional Rs. 200/- as an Excess Payment. Now, when a new invoice for Rs. 500/- is raised for club house booking, the Rs. 200/- would automatically get adjusted against the new invoice.

What’s New with this Major Enhancement

ApnaComplex now supports recording of the excess payment against a particular charge type (a.k.a Income Head). With this ability, advance payments against a given charge type will only get auto-adjusted if there is a new charge/invoice against that particular charge type.

In the above example, when recording the excess payment of Rs. 200/- members and admin would have the ability to mention the 200/- to a particular charge type – say against Maintenance Charges. Now, when the next invoice of Rs. 500/- is raised against the flat for Club House Booking – the 200/- that is paid as an advance against Maintenance Charges would NOT get adjusted against the Rs. 500/-. However, when the new invoice for next maintenance charges is raised, the Rs. 200/- would be auto-adjusted.

Need for this change

There are quite a few apartments, where the owners pay the maintenance dues and tenants pay for charges like Club House etc. In most cases Owners pay the maintenance dues in advance for 6-months or an year. In such cases any facility booking by tenant or move-in/out charges should not get auto-adjusted with the advances paid and must be maintained separately. With this enhancement, Treasurers and accountants have greater control over the auto-adjustment.

Similarly the advance received towards a Corpus Fund will no more auto-adjusted against the Maintenance Due invoices.

The default behavior of excess payment will continue to be the earlier way of “Generic Advance Payment” which will auto-adjust the advance with new invoice of any income head. Similarly when the member payments are uploaded via excel, ApnaComplex will put any excess payments into Generic Advance Payment bucket itself, like earlier.

Announcing Tenant Lease Module in ApnaComplex

Continuing to raise the bar in Society Management, ApnaComplex added a new module to track rental or tenant leases for flats in an apartment complex.
One of the biggest pain for all societies is to keep the database of tenants up to date. More often than not all past tenants will continue to be part of the community’s member database even after several months after the tenant as left the complex.
ApnaComplex announces Tenant Leases ModuleWith the new module “Tenant Leases”:

  • Administrators can maintain leases of all flats along with their start and end dates
  • Members of a flat that has lease details updated in ApnaComplex, shall be notified a week ahead of time regarding the lease expiry
  • Once the lease end date is over, ApnaComplex automatically inactivates the tenants and sends an email indicating the same to owners and tenants. ApnaComplex also marks the lease as Inactive
  • Administrators can cancel the lease, extend the lease dates at any time
  • Lease History shall be maintained and viewed along with the flat details at any time
  • Tenant requests cannot be approved, tenants cannot be added unless there is a active lease for that unit

ApnaComplex really changed the environment in a very positive manner

When we started ApnaComplex, our objective was simple – Help create Happy Communities. We are proud and super excited today when we received the following testimonial from Mr. Praveen, Hon. Secretary of Ferns Habitat Owners Association, a gated community near Doddanekundi, Bangalore who have been using ApnaComplex now close to an year.

ApnaComplex is really an efficient tool for Association management activities and effective communication, and it really makes life easy for all the management committee Members in all areas including treasury management.

The Ferns Habitat Portal built on ApnaComplex really changed the environment in a very positive manner and created credibility among the members about treasury and all the Association related areas.

It has helped in bringing in transparency effectively in whatever the Association do. Many members who were detached from the community were brought back on board in the system and we see many smiling faces around.

The society environment has improved drastically and there is no match to the feature rich experience we have with this amazing software suite. You think of a feature and let them know, to your surprise, you will get a reply that either they are doing a beta testing or the feature is under development. Man, these guys are so close to the customers and market.

I think I enjoyed my tenure as a Gen.Secretary largely by bringing this software into practice in Ferns Habitat and making it as the backbone of the community today. Long Live ApnaComplex !!

Thank you Mr. Praveen for your words!! We are glad to have helped you create a happier society.
