New Dashboard for “Request Approver” Role

We are happy to announce the availability of a new “consolidated” dashboard view for “Request Approver” role.

As you know “Request Approver” role in ApnaComplex can approve several types of requests – including Request Box Requests, Purchase Requests and more recently Expenditure Bills. You had to go to each of individual menu items to be able to see the requests pending for your approval. It was confusing for most users to navigate to different menu items to be able to go to each type of approval.

We have now consolidated screen for all requests pending approval for the “Request Approver” role. As soon as you switch to the role you can now notice a view with 3 tabs that lists requests pending for approval under Purchase Requests, Bills and Request Box Requests. Makes approving/rejecting requests super easy.

In case you navigate away from the dashboard doing other activities in this role, all you need to do to click on Home->Dashboard to be able get back the consolidated view. Do note that this view is only visible for Request Approver roles.

SAOA Appreciation Certificate

Suncity Apartments have started using ApnaComplex from Aug 15th 2013. Suncity has selected ApnaComplex after thoroughly evaluating several solutions in the market (the evaluation itself was one of the most comprehensive we have experienced). Exactly one year later they sent us the below note of appreciation along with a certificate. The note very neatly sums up how ApnaComplex was able to help them in various aspects of apartment management and how we made a difference.

Its a proud moment for all of us at ApnaComplex to receive this note and certificate – there is surely no award that is bigger than a award from a customer.

Dear ApnaComplex Team,

  • Rollout to entire Suncity (1200+ Apartments)
  • Managing 10,000+ resident issues through Apnacomplex
  • More than 55% payments today happening online i.e reduced effort

Announcing Rules Engine in ApnaComplex for Dynamic Housing Societies

Continuing with the tradition of innovation, ApnaComplex now offers, a first of its kind in any Housing Society Software, a rules engine for housing societies to implement automated billing to members based on any number of conditions.

So, what is this rules engine?

Rules Engine offers ApnaComplex administrators a mechanism to get list of units (flats / villas) based on criteria conigured by the administrator. Let us say, you want to know list of rented flats where vehicle count is more than 3 and resident count is more than 6. In life with out ApnaComplex you would have to get the data from multiple sources and then try and count manually or write couple of excel macros. Its super easy to get this with the rule engine. Create three rules, combine them to create a rule set, execute the rule set to get the list of flats.

Committee Member of a society that adopted ApnaComplex 🙂

That sounds fun. But what is the real utility of this in a Society Accounting Software?

Imagine if you were to do billing to members based on a conditions like number of parking lots owned, number of residents in the house, who occupied the flat etc. This data is dynamic and can potentially change every month when you are ready to invoice. It takes enormous amount of time to accurately raise an invoice. With help of rules engine, you can create the conditions that impact your billing as rules, group them as rule sets and save them. When you are ready to invoice, just execute the rule set to get list of flats and then use that to raise the invoices on selected units.

Can I use the rules engine with recurring invoices feature of ApnaComplex?

Absolutely yes, you can now configure recurring invoices to execute one or more rule sets and then add charges for ONLY those units that meet the conditions mentioned in the rules. Now, that is mighty powerful – the system automatically executes rules that are defined by the admin on a periodic basis and then generate invoices to only those flats that meet the conditions. Zero manual intervention.

What if billing criteria in my housing society changes?

You can change the conditions and the threshold values for the conditions any time you want.

I can’t wait to use it. Where do I find it?

If you already using ApnaComplex, go to Income->Member Income. Click Setup Rules to get started.
If you want to get started with ApnaComplex, register your society and get started!

Is there anything else I can do with the rules engine other than billing?

Stay tuned for more ways of using this unique feature in ApnaComplex 🙂

Refund to Members Made Easy in ApnaComplex

A New Year gift to ApnaComplex Treasurers!

ApnaComplex – your favorite Society Accounting Software now supports giving refund to members easily. One of the not-so-frequent scenarios that happen in a housing society is to refund money paid by members.

This usually happens when members pay excess amount to the society and later claim refund or when caution deposits made are to be refunded to tenants. In one of the cases we are aware of, a member has paid Rs. 90,000/- instead of Rs. 9,000/- by mistake to the society via NEFT only to claim a refund later.

We have been advising our treasurers a series of steps to issue a refund to members. Now, we have automated all these steps and issuing a refund is now as simple as any other financial transaction in ApnaComplex.

Just go to Income->Member Income. Filter on flat and select the ‘Add Refund’ icon against the flat to issue refund to members who have advance payment in their accounts. All you need to do is fill the amount of refund, mode of payment etc and you are done!
Like with all other scenarios, ApnaComplex takes care of all the accounting entries behind the scenes.

You can also view refunds given across the society, against specific flats easily – view the details of the refunds given and even delete refunds given if needed.

Happy Giving 🙂

Temple Tree Apartments Goes Live on ApnaComplex!

We warmly welcome all owners and residents of  Temple Tree Apartments, an apartment complex in Ulsoor area of Bangalore, on to ApnaComplex Portal.  The Temple Tree Apartment Owners Association were using another apartment management software earlier that was not able to meet thier needs and hence did a through evaluation and zeroed in on ApnaComplex. Mr. Rajiv Babu, Committee Member of Temple Tree Apartment Owners Association has the following to say on the this occasion:
ApnaComplex is the best Accounting and Management Software for any Housing Society

ApnaComplex is the best Accounting and Management Software for any Housing Society

“As an apartment community, we needed various tools for effective functioning. This included communication tools, accounting tools, issue filing systems and a whole lot of other systems. Initially our apartment complex was setup on another apartment management software, but we had serious issues in maintaining accounting information.

Over time, this became really cumbersome as multiple accounts were being maintained in excel and other systems. We wanted one system which could handle all the accounting and also circulate information to all members. ApnaComplex had a unique feature in that we found it to be the only apartment management system which supported double entry accounting.

While we are still setting up our accounts, we envisage it now becoming like bank accounts with detailed statements, receipts, transaction history and all sensitive information under one roof. All this seems to come at a very reasonable price making it a really worthy investment. We hope using this tool, the whole management experience would become very professional rivaling corporate setups.

Thank you Mr. Rajiv and TTAOA for your nice words. We look forward to serve Temple Tree Apartments.


Accounting System packaged with ApnaComplex portal is what makes it unique!

We are blessed with another solid testimonial from a happy customer – Mr. S V Padmanabhan, Hon. President of  Dhyanaprastha Township Owners Society. Here is what he has to share about ApnaComplex:

Testimonial
“We started using ApnaComplex portal since mid Feb. 2011 after preliminary trials, especially with the Accounting System packaged with it. This is what makes this portal unique and suitable for our township for senior citizens. It is managed by the owners – all senior citizens. Apart from common services typical of other societies, we offer centralized cooking / catering of food and housekeeping besides car / driver

To keep track of expenses and income, we wanted an online Accounting System that could be accessed and monitored remotely by the Treasurer and any Office Bearer of the Managing Committee. ApnaComplex makes it possible. At any time it is possible to ensure that all transactions are up-to-date. We can generate reports that can help control expenses. Any member can get information on bills raised and payments made. The system is user friendly and does not call for the services of an accountant.

The portal is also rich in other features that can be used by all members. In short, ApnaComplex is very well suited for most housing societies. The license fee is reasonable in the context of the benefits that can be realized by its use. I wish ApnaComplex success in their endeavour to promote their application.”

Thank you Mr. Padmanabhan. We are glad we are of help to make life of senior citizens in your society a little less hassle free.
