Society Data Management Enhancement: Create Custom Committee Member Roles in ApnaComplex

ApnaComplex now provides freedom for housing societies to create their own committee roles. All along, we supported standard committee roles of Chairman, President, Treasurer Sub-Committee Member etc. – but with the new generation committees there are more and more fancy designations coming into play 🙂

To support these needs, we now allow creation of custom roles for committee members. Just go to Directory->Committee Members->Manage Committee Roles after logging in as admin to see this in action.

We welcome the owners and residents of Dream Meadows, a beautiful private layout consisting of 246 plots in the Brookefields area of Bangalore to the ApnaComplex family.

As a Treasurer of our Association with no accounting knowledge I find maintaining accounts is pretty simple with ApnaComplex
What is most pleasing for us is that managing committee of Dream Meadows did very thorough evaluation of various softwares and finalized ApnaComplex.

Mr. Sivaram, Treasurer of Dream Meadows Owners Association, wrote to us on the occassion of going live and has following to say about ApnaComplex:
“Thank you very much for your support in Dream Meadows going live on ApnaComplex in less than 3 weeks. The three best things that we have found with ApnaComplex are:

  1. Pricing : Is reasonable for the features provided compared to other counterparts.
  2. Service : Is marvelous and with very low response time.
  3. Features: Rich and impressive set of features.


We could go live in less than 3 weeks and your support in achieving this is FANTASTIC.

Thanks for taking the feedback on the existing functionality and your readiness to implement the same in to the Application.

Some of the functionality like Discussion Forum, Notice Board with SMS facility are very much helpful to the owners stationed out of Bangalore.

As a committee member, Action Item Tracker with reminder service and Complaint Tracker are really good and pretty much helpful.

I, as a Treasurer of our Association with no accounting knowledge find maintaining accounts (Member maintenance charges, Non-Member Charges) pretty much simpler with ApnaComplex.

Thank You ApnaComplex Team for the great support we received from you to help us go live and will definitely recommend your services to my known contatcts.

Hoping to have to have the same kind of support in future too!!!!”

Thank you Mr. Sivaram for your kind words!

ApnaComplex - Choice of every Apartment Complex

“First of all, what I felt with Apnacomplex is the terrific support provided to us as starter. Thier prompt and consistent mails helped us a lot to implement the system without wasting time.

Regarding the functionality, I swear that ApnaComplex has incorporated all the requirements of the day to day management of apartment complexes. Some of the functions which attracted me more are the discussion forum, notice board, facility booking etc. which will be very helpful especially for owners staying outside the country and those who are not much organized with emails.

About accounts section the main attraction is that one need not to be an accountant to use ApnaComplex and handle accounts. It’s just simple as that!

I will surely introduce Apnacomplex to my friends and colleagues who are waiting for their apartment complexes to be handed over in the near future.”

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.

New Feature: Enforce Acceptance of Bye-laws Electronically in your Housing Society

Here’s a question –  you know bye-laws are the constitution for your complex – but, how do you know all members of your association have indeed read bye laws? Tough? Next, how do you ensure every one acknowledges the amendments made to the bye-laws in last AGM? Tougher? Help is here now from ApnaComplex in the new feature that is released.

We are happy to announce the release of an innovative feature in ApnaComplex using which Administrators can configure any terms & conditions that every member must accept before members gain access to their complex in the portal. Administrators can put your complex bye laws as the content of terms and conditions. Once the content is configured and enforcement is enabled – when any member logs on to ApnaComplex, they will be presented the terms and conditions page with contents configured by the Administrator. These Terms and Conditions must be accepted by the member in order to gain access to the complex in ApnaComplex. This makes it extremely easy to ensure all members including tenants indeed go through the bye-laws when they move-in.

What’s more – Administrators can update the terms and conditions, reset the status of all users who accepted and request to accept the reivsed terms and conditions again. Total flexitbility in your hands and makes it easy to all members to know the new amendments in the byelaws.

Benefits due to this feature

It is not very uncommon that most residents in any residential complex are not aware of all bye-laws and the fact that there is constant flux in the tenants makes it even difficult to ensure every one is in fact aware of all bye-laws. In addition, getting an acknowledgment that members have read the bye-laws or any important amendments is even difficult. The ignorance on bye-laws keeps causing problems of non-compliance quite often. This takes away precious time from committee members to resolve these problems.

Go to Community –> Settings and click the link “Confiure T&C” link available to get started.


ApnaComplex is a web based apartment management software. It is designed to make the life of residents and owners a lot better by brining in more transaparency and accountability in manging the complex. Sign up your complex today and get the benefits!


Apartment Association Terms Explained – Part One

Learning about many terms used in an apartment association can be very helpful indeed. These terms will come to your rescue when you’re facing a huge wad of legal paperwork, and when you’re finding the formal tone and legal jargon extremely hard to understand and digest. Although we all may know the generic meaning for terms like ‘apartments’ and ‘apartment owner’, the legal meaning may be more loaded that what people can normally comprehend. Knowing all legal terms and learning about various definitions from a professional perspective can thus help you.

When reading up on the terms used in an apartment association, always go for a trusted source.

Terms Used In An Apartment Association

Given below are a few terms used in an apartment association, and their proper explanation. All these terms are defined under the Karnataka Apartment Ownership Act of 1972, which defines and talks about an individual’s ownership over a set dimension of property. You will learn more about the constituents of this act when you take up the registration procedure for your deeds and Declaration.

Apartment:

An ‘apartment’ is basically a term used to denote a residential section in a building that can be located in any of the mentioned floor, with any number of rooms. An apartment may also be present in more than one floor, or in parts in each floor. Apartments, as per the Apartment Ownership act, have a direct exit to a public road or street, or even highway. Apartments which do not fall under this category may have a direct exit to a public space or common area, which may in turn lead to a public street or highway.

Apartment Owner:

An apartment owner will normally refer to a person who owns an apartment, and has some undivided interest in all shared regions in the apartment complex too. The interest and other particulars will be duly mentioned in the Declaration, and these can be taken from the documents directly.

Apartment Number:

The letter or number designated to a particular apartment is the apartment number. The number will be mentioned in the Declaration, and it may either be a letter, a number or a mixed combination of both these things. The apartment number is first specified in the declaration.

Association of Apartment Owners:

This is a term that is used to denote all the members of an apartment association. The people who together form the apartment association are collectively termed as an Association of Apartment Owners. True to the term, these individuals will have an apartment in the premises in their name and will all be owners of at least one apartment in the complex.

Building:

In the jargon used in an apartment association, a building normally means a residential structure that houses at least four (or more) apartments. A collective building can also refer to a structure with two buildings with two (or more) apartments in each building. A minimum of four apartments are seen as necessary either way.

These are the very basic definitions that you first need to know and understand in order to proceed to the later ones. Other definitions on common areas and public spaces will soon follow.
