Comments: On top of everything SimplifyEm is a web-based software and can be used from anywhere with access to Wi-Fi. I recommend the software to property managers and any owner of a rental property.

Pros: SimplifyEm makes tracking rent and payments simple. It has made it easy for me to collect rents online and monitor all my property expenses in one place. I can store lease agreements so I can access them easily in the application. I use it to send email to my tenant, provide them with any notices. I like rent reminders and ability to track maintenance requests.

Cons: I wish I could use the application offline. Some of the forms like lease agreements, notices to quit, notice to pay can be accessed offline but I cannot do data entry offline.

Comments: This is the perfect app for someone who needs a place to track tenant information and leases while keeping a history of past tenants and what work orders and requests have been submitting while consolidating expenses. The tracking of all tenant communication in one place makes so easy to lookup information and avoid any miscommunication and legal issues.

Pros: As a property owner, SimplifyEm has decreased my workload and saved time. I can easily see work orders and expenses at a glance while collecting payments and see all tenant communication in one place. I like how I can set up rent reminders to invoice my tenant every month automatically. This has helped get rent on time every month. SimplifyEm has freed up my time and streamlined my property management tasks into a manageable process so that I spend less time on managing property.

Comments: I am an accidental owner of rental property, and SimplifyEm has truly made it easy.  The ability to easily track all of the information and being able to generate a tax report at the end of the year has taken the fear of failing a tax audit.  It has reduced my paperwork significantly, and there are fewer errors as SimplifyEm keeps track of every aspect of the management of our property. 

Pros: SimplifyEm allows property managers and landlords to keep track of a multitude of their responsibilities including work orders and repairs, rent/lease payments, lease documents, create invoices, track deadlines, and many more features.  SimplifyEm also allowed me to send emails, rent reminders, rent receipts, and notices.  SimplifyEm¿s ease of use is one of its best features.  The interface makes it intuitive to use to even those like me who aren¿t experts in technology.  The software seamlessly works with Excel and QuickBooks, so you can export to those programs easily if necessary.

Cons: Initially, when I started using the software, I had to call support couple of times. They were quick in answering my questions or responding to me on weekends. I wish they would add phone support over the weekend as some of us like to catch on some work on weekends.  SimplifyEm has many features such as work orders that are not of value to a property owner like me. If there is a way to hide these features, it will make the application even more easy to use.

Comments: The core benefit for me is the automation ¿ Instead of having to do the same things over and over again on a monthly basis, SimplifyEm helps me do the things that I had to manually do before.

Pros: The software minimize issues with the burdensome and time eating tedium of tracking income and expenses on every single one of my properties. One of the best things is being able to view the dashboard and be able to not just be a passive recipient of information but also being able to actively charges fees, keep up with the balances of tenants. I've found that communication with tenants is usually difficult when reaching out and keeping track of who did this, who needed extra time to pay, etc. With SE, I have been able to streamline a lot of it and minimize communication on my end and those who help me. Me and my team can pick up where the other has left off.

Cons: Another major concern I had was being able to adapt to the software, we've had experiences in the past where it took months to adjust and I was even more confused after trying to use something that is supposed to help me out and MINIMIZE my time spent on this. The experience with SimplifyEm was much better, no issues in how to use the platform, it was much more intuitive. I was able to pick up the app and run with it. I wish the company adds even more FAQs as I had to call support few times.

Comments: My bookkeeper has everything in Quickbooks, but I have no idea how to get a meaningful report. This program makes it easy to see how each and every property performs.

Pros: Ease of use. I am a visual type person. Tracks everything and gives me relevant reports. Let's me see which properties are the better performers and helps me fine tune the others.

Cons: Not all functions are obvious. I've had to call tech support a few times, but they were great at walking me through it.

Comments: Need to write a check to a vendor? Click. Need to enter a check from a tenant Click. Need to generate a report combining rent, repairs and other factors so you can know where your profit and loss is? Click. Really it¿s a fantastic software works for landlords like me.

Pros: SimplifyEm is really, simply fantastic¿for landlords like me, mostly because SimplifyEm makes the mundane automatic, and the difficult simple. There are many factors, every day, that I have to deal with, and SimplifyEm combines the all. Everything is connected. The system alerts you to a whole host of things, so you can see at a glance what tenants have paid, which are currently late for rent, which repair tasks are open, and various other factors.

Cons: The software enables export to QuickBooks and transactions to a spreadsheet. In future, I hope it enables export of all reports to spreadsheets

Comments: As a vendor that offers free training and also support through the phone and via email, SimplifyEm support is very easy to contact. It has helped me get organized and automated right away to fit my specific needs.

Pros: SimplifyEm has been the answer for managing my residential rental properties. Because it is a web-based application via the Internet, I can access it from anywhere, anytime. As a property manager, I have automated tracking income and expenses on each of my properties, charging fees, handling tenant balances, collecting payments online, and communicating with tenants through tenant portals and notices. I no longer have to keep track of my information manually for each property and have saved time by automating statements, notices, and fees. I do not have to deal with piles of paper anymore, and I have eliminated spending time on repetitive activities. When a tenant sends a maintenance request, I track work orders and repairs via the calendar so I know when to buy equipment, schedule my maintenance personnel, and see the history for each tenant/apartment. The task center has all of my information as a single place to track all communication history with vendors, owners, and tenants. I attach supporting documents. I create invoices, track deadlines, store lease agreements, monitor insurance, and capture tenant details all in one place. When I need to, I send group emails/notices for site visits, maintenance alerts, rent reminders, and any other news that needs to be shared with all tenants.

Cons: SimplifyEm¿s accounting module manages accounts payable and receivable and monitors any recurring charges along with a complete transaction history. I use QuickBooks for payroll and can easily export other transactions. I use the banking feature so I can print checks, access bank accounts, perform reconciliations, view bank balances. I had to adjust the margins.

Cons: I had difficulty learning the flow process and getting properties loaded in the beginning, but Simplifyem had a training call with me and that helped considerably.

Comments: If you aren¿t tech savvy and want to save time each month, this software will help you a lot. I like it as it has made property management job easy.

Pros: Simplifyem is a simple and straightforward property management software. Everything is categorized in sections so you¿ll never get confused especially if you¿re not tech savvy like myself. It¿s easy to set everything up and doesn¿t take long. There¿s a bunch of reports and I love how they¿re so easy to run. At the end of the month, I can quickly send out owner statements. I also send out rent receipts to all my tenants in bulk all at once just by a single button so I¿m not doing them one by one like how I used to. My tenants also send maintenance requests through their portals which is really convenient because I can just create a work order and assign it to a vendor right away. Customer Service is great! They walked me through on setting up online payments. They even offered to set them up for me at no extra cost. My tenants now pay on time and some don¿t need to login each month since they¿re setup on automatic withdrawals. This really helps when paying my owners online as well.

Cons: None, software works as expected and the functionality is easy to use which will be of a benefit to non tech savvy users

It has been easy to use and produce reports, the one call I have made to support was answered promptly and my question was easily resolved.

Pros: The software has the ability to connect to quickbooks and electronic payment ability I think as we grow and can afford more it will simplify some of the dual entries

Cons: I wish at the the entry level, up to 10 properties would connect to quickbooks. We receive all payments electronically and send payments that way but I have to do in 2 separate softwares

Pros: Fairly easy to use. They have great customer support and always willing to walk you through issues. Overall it's fairly easy.

Cons: They just have basic reporting. If you want to really analyze your property this is not the software for you.You can get a Rentroll and Tenant Late Report but that's about it. They don't have a vacant listing or make ready status or occupancy percentage. I believe if they can develop better reports - this program would be awesome. Don't get me wrong it is a great simple program. That is why it's called SimplfyEm.

Comments: It's a great system for small companies or owners. Pricing is not bad for a few dollars you can get all that you need to keep track of everything.

Pros: Pricing and customer service. They even schedule a training for you where they teach you step by step.

Cons: Might be a bit tricky to set up with a few too many steps. You have to go to several places to complete the info for 1 rental.

Pros: Reports once we have entered the same redundant thing in many areas of the software. Once you have done all of this it is great to have the individual reports to see how your business is running!

Cons: Not an easy software to get around in. Very redundant. You have to enter the same thing in several places in order for your reports to be correct. Customer support is not good. Very difficult to get a live person that actually understands your issue and in helping to adequately resolve that issue. You wait and wait and wait on a return call. The fees they charge for online rent payments is ridiculously high for the price of the software we already pay for. Their turn around for releasing payment to us is ridiculous. We need quick access to our rent payments in order to pay our owners in a timely manner.

Comments: The reason I looked into property managment software was to allow tenants to easily pay rent online and avoid the headache of manual deposits. Unfortunately, this created a whole different and worse problem. Money was not available in the account for 7-10 days. ACH payments really shouldn't take that long to clear!

Pros: Some of the features ae convenient. Customer service team was helpful and polite. Setup was easy and fast.

Cons: Deposits through ACH took 7-10 days to clear. Even with weekends, this length of time is unworkable for most owners.

Vendor Response

by SimplifyEm.com on June 14, 2017

Hi Elizabeth, we are happy to hear you found the setup was easy and our support team was helpful! It seems like the online payment process was not clear, so I'm happy to clarify! Although it has never taken 7 or more business days to clear, online payments do take 2 business days to clear, not including weekends or bank holidays, such as Christmas. We are looking forward to the upcoming federal changes to payment processing that will be reducing the clearing period to 1 business day and will be including this as part of our system as it becomes available. Online payments can take more time to process than driving to a bank and depositing rent payments. However, most property managers value online payments for the amount of time saved each month compared to handling paper checks, manually depositing and manually bookkeeping each payment. Online payments also provide an easy way for tenants to automate and send payments, creating a more professional experience. Online Payments are one of our most popular features, which will continue to be enhanced based on feedback like yours!

Pros: All documents can be saved in the software for each property. A monthly cash flow report is emailed automatically. Customer service department will walk you through the steps to enter property information or rents/security. They will also contact you even if you reach out after hours or have communicated via email.

Cons: Needs consistent use to remember how to enter payment or additional information. everything else works very well

I am on the fence about this software.

Pros: It is easy enough to use expect for the part of managing leases for Ontario, Canada. Easy set up of new properties, landlords and tenants.

Cons: You need to get a 1-800 number so I can call at any time but because I am a Canadian client, I am not able to call the U.S with my phone plan. Emails don't always get conveyed properly. Need to have a choice to the lease information whether you have a security deposit or last month's rent deposit. The latter is missing. This would make our process so much easier. Need to have an auditing trail with your software so mistakes can easily be found. I was once told that I had to pay for your bookkeeper to find an error I made...luckily I was able to find the problem and fix. If a mistake was entered, you should be able to reverse it...your system does not always allow this. Biggest con my clients and I have is that if a tenant is using last month's rent or is late paying their rent for a particular month, your owner statement should show their name at least, even if no $$ is present. This is a MUST and I hope you but this change in your next release.

Vendor Response

by SimplifyEm.com on April 26, 2017

Hi Chantal, thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are happy you found the software easy to setup and use. It looks like we could have done a better job meeting your needs as a Canadian user though. Security deposits are currently supported for U.S. situations. Last month rent deposit can be tracked, but it could be handled more smoothly for the Canadian market. Owner Statements show the financials on an owner¿s properties and a Rent Roll can also be sent with an overview of paid and unpaid tenant balances. An audit log is something we would like to do in the future, but any transaction can be reversed if incorrect. I will ensure the support team follows up with more information. Users in both the U.S. and Canada are able to reach us at 1 510 790 9066 9-5 PST and speak a live person within a few rings. Emails are also responded to within a few hours in most cases. We have many Canadian users, but we also ensure to clarify we are geared towards the U.S. and will discuss limitations. Before purchasing, these limitations and your phone plan were discussed, and we offered to call when needed by simply emailing support. Over the past few months, a personal support member has promptly called within a few hours and has assisted with one-on-one setup for as much time as needed. We do our best to provide a support experience that is above and beyond what is typically offered and we appreciate your feedback on how we can further improve.

Comments: After working in the property management industry and dealing with software like Appfolio, I know the impact of a good software in the day to day operation in my new job as an investor of 8 apartment rentals.

Pros: Online rent payments Tenant and vendor reports, income and expense reports, rent roll, etc

Cons: Parking fee and any other fees have to be compiled in one rent payment. Does not allow to break it up.

Recommendations to other buyers: Great product and very affordable

Comments: After tracking investment property income and expenses in MS Excel became too tedious, I found Simplifyem to be a cost effective solution Their customer service and support is excellent. It tracks income and expenses and keeps track of what is owed very well. It has pre assigned categories and the user can add them as well. The software is cloud based which allows a user to access the information from anywhere with an internet connection. The software allows the user to generate reports to send to the accountant.

Pros: Cloud Based. Excellent customer support

Cons: Site is not friendly for mobile users - Would love to see an app developed Limited options for customization

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are a small to mid size property management firm or Landlord, Simplifyem is a very good solution to run your business. Their pricing schemes are highly competitive.

Pros: The telephone response to questions about use of the product is excellent.

Cons: There are a few glitches in the software such as the inability to split expenses over more than one property without having to make the division allocation and then pull up each property and make the entry. I have asked why they will not modify the program which is basically from an old Quicken Property Management program but they have told me there is not a great demand for this. I wonder if the users even know of the possibility???

Recommendations to other buyers: I recommend that if a problem develops be sure to call the SimplifyEm Tech number as you will get an answer to your questions right away and you will not have to listen to constant background noise/clanging in a foreign call center and a tech person you cannot understand.

Pros: Easy to use, clean interface. Customer support is amazing. They will help you on weekends too. Pricing is very reasonable.

Cons: Few things could be improved: 1. No way to send tenant direct invoice. 2. Accounting for return of security deposit and making deductions is almost impossible. 3. Online payment module is not quite integrated with the tenant info, if you enter a rent increase starting in 2 months, higher payment will be taken out the next month??

Recommendations to other buyers: If your property is in Rent Controlled jurisdiction and units have roommates take a very hard look.

Pros: We have not started using SimplifyEm yet. Will start setting it up in November 2016 to launch January 2017. We have signed up for a 3 year commitment. My overview is on the software advice we got. They recommended three companies that they thought would work for our business. I did not have to go through the hassle of calling and searching a dozen companies. I contacted the three companies that they recommended. Took a look at what they had to offer and the price it was going to cost per year. I decided that SimplifyEm would work the best for our business. They made searching for a software company much less taxing.

Cons: There is nothing that I do not like. They were very prompt in helping me select a software. They called back to see if I had any questions or if I needed more help in selecting a different software.

Recommendations to other buyers: Just take the time to research what they have to offer and what your need are currently and what you speculate them to be in the future to make your decision.

Pros: It is very easy to use. It has a clear presentation. Seeing lots of units at a glance is easy.

Cons: When putting in the details of the payment in the notes section, something happens with the formatting. like instead of symbols (Which I use when putting in dates) it changes them to "n" and other weird things. I have had to modify the way I input information. Also, when people are behind, if you input the actual date that they pay, it goes to the month that payment was received (ie: if someone pays me August 8th for July rent, if I use date of payment, it will only apply to August. So I have to use the notes section to say when the payment inputted)

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are looking for something basic, this is a great software. I am very happy with it.

Pros: I am new to the product but so far it appears to be of great value. So far the product seems to be exactly what we need, we are a small operation but need major organization and record keeping and this product seems to be exactly what we need. I inputted data this weekend and it really was quite simple - even I was able to do it - all on my own.

Cons: The go back option is a little tricky. I needed to go back to the previous screen and I had to finagle my way around it. It probably is operator issue - I just have to learn the program

Recommendations to other buyers: Go through the demo with the vendor. The vendors demo session was heaven sent! The young lady was very knowledgeable of the operation of the program - I recommend that everyone purchasing this product go through the demo session.

Recommendations to other buyers: Simple to use, yet powerful. Keeps all of our property managed properties paperwork in order. Great for year end information that is required to be sent. I have used others but this is simply the best!

Pros: Online program

Overall: You don't learn the truth about the product until you start using it. May not get you some of your money until the 7th of the month if using online banking even though rent is due on 1st. Program does not inform you of a service request placed on Portal by tenant. You are not emailed about the service request. Inconveniently you must go online and search for service request. This defeats the purpose of convenience.

Recommendations to other buyers: Program needs lots of work.

Vendor Response

by SimplifyEm.com on December 12, 2016

Notifications have always been sent immediately via email for service requests. These requests can be edited or updated by logging into the account. Online payments always take 2 business days to clear before being deposited. Online payments are incredibly popular due to the convenience for both the tenant and the property manager. They will also automatically make an entry in the software when a payment is made letting you know the deposit date. We pride ourselves on the excellent support we provide, so if you have any questions or need help, please feel free to contact support at 510 790 9066 9-5pm PST or support@simplifyem.com.

Pros: Learning curve was short. Even better, on-line help was useful in setting up the properties. I had several long-term tenants in the properties and on-line help was able to walk me through how do properly document the prior lease agreements and deposit amounts and times without causing accounting errors. I have accessed owner reports already and they are well laid out and comprehensive. Great work. Far beyond expectations!

Cons: The kind of silly name "SimplifyEM" does not reflect the fact that this is a very professional and complete package.

Recommendations to other buyers: The initial "walk through" with the vendor setting up sample properties took several hours but was well worth the time. I used my actual properties and the "join me" application had mirror images of mine and the technician's screens to explain visually. This was also very helpful and probably saved time in the long run due to shortening the learning curve.

Pros: The price is phenomenal. If you are an owner with a few properties, this is ideal.

Cons: No customization, very limited reporting, doesn't have bank reconciliation reports, extremely limited GL codes. Also, they will tell you their software supports functions, then try to walk you through a "work-around" to get it to do what you want. Not sufficient. If you get audited by the state (very common in WA), good luck with this software!! It's too simplified, limited functionality and not intuitive in the least. Once you get in and start using it, you can figure it out, but it just never feels smooth. Also, some things are too easy to enter, and therefore, too easy to mess up. Dog walked on my keyboard one day....... To say the accounting is robust, I think that's a misunderstanding of the definition of that word.

Recommendations to other buyers: If price is your only concern, then go here. You CANNOT beat their price, it's amazing! Just remember, you get what you pay for. If you want functionality in the accounting features you have to be above a certain amount of units. Then, when you are, you are disappointed with the limits of these "upgrades". If you are unbalanced when you go to reconcile your bank statements it is going to take a LONG time to figure out where you went wrong. The software is not intuitive. Customer support is great, until you want to downgrade or cancel your service, then they don't have time for you. Also, if you pre-pay (rates are awesome) and then realize they just can't grow with you, sorry Charlie, no refund.

Vendor Response

by SimplifyEm.com on June 15, 2016

Hi Tiana, thank you for sharing your experience with us. We appreciate your kind comments regarding our pricing and our excellent support team, but it looks like we fell short on meeting your expectations. It appears there was a request to add a large amount of HOA units to your existing account (a one year old account with residential properties). We discussed that HOAs are something we are looking to better handle in the future, but do not optimize for. Based on our great pricing it was decided to try a test run with a few properties. After some one-on-one support and a custom setup by our team (at no additional cost) there was some additional functionality you were looking for and we promptly refunded the full upgrade cost. The subscription for your residential properties from before the upgrade we were not able to refund. Many of the features and reports mentioned are available, including banking and audit reports. Support is easily accessible at 1 510 790 9066 for one-on-one help or to answer questions about the software and how to best use it. Our team also has monthly releases with features/reports requested by users. We are sad we were unable to meet your needs at this time and wish you the best in the future.

Pros: It relieves me of the stress of the accounting work. Math is not my strong point! I did all my trust accounting by hand for over 20 years. I tried other property management software and found myself confused and overwhelmed. Simplifyem is easy to understand and use. If I get stuck, I call customer support and they walk me through it. Representatives are always polite, friendly and professional. Now, I can focus on taking care of my clients' needs better.

Cons: It would be nice if owners could request statements and invoices on their own without my having to publish each individually.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try it for a month. Upload a few accounts and see how easy it is.

Pros: Software is comprehensive and easy to use. I've never experienced such great vendor support. Can't say enough good things about the support. Not only do they know the software inside and out but they seem to know the property management industry and thus have provided several good tips on setting up the worksheets etc.

Cons: I will need to reach to find something I dislike. Perhaps a more robust report generator so I can do a bit more customized reporting.

Recommendations to other buyers: Do not get caught by the tremendous "up-sell" by some of the companies. Ask yourself if you and your clients really need and would use some of the features they will tell you you can't live without.

Recommendations to other buyers: Even if you use other bookkeeping systems for your overall accounting, I've never found anything that tracked rental property better.

Love the program and service!

Pros: Easy-to-use bookkeeping system and reporting. I use the auto-draft service for collecting rent. 90% of my tenants use it. No complaints from tenants.

Cons: It takes about ten days to learn that auto-draft from a tenant's bank account was unsuccessful. Once I get the notice, it's very helpful in rescheduling a second draft.

Recommendations to other buyers: The service behind the software is unbeatable. My questions are answered promptly by email, always the same day and usually in a couple hours.

Simply amazing!

Pros: The software is easy to understand and use. It seems like a Property Manager has designed it to make our work more simply (thus, SimplifyEM). The vendor is always ready to help and answer questions with patients and knowledge. They are a world of knowledge.

Cons: Information gathering could be more detailed. Landlord, tenant, managers all accessible, and name/title of unit could coincide with the owner of the property rather than unit # or company name.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try it first and then look to improve what they feel is a problem for them. It could be instructional or better understanding the system

Pros: They offer great support and very easy to use functions.

Cons: It does not have much of a landlord or tenant interface, but this feature was only used by a very small percentage of users, so it's not much of a loss for my business.

Recommendations to other buyers: It has a very easy learning curve and we were up and going in very short period of time. Also, the savings were huge in relation to other products on the market.

Very helpful software

Pros: This product simplifies the rent collection process. Customer service has been easily reachable by phone any time I needed questions answered. Not once have I needed to make a follow up call on the same issue.

Cons: The time it takes to do standard bank transfers is too long. Sometimes, the money is not accessible in my account for 3-4 days due to AHC processing.

Recommendations to other buyers: Give it a try with at least one property. The fees are reasonable.

Pros: Easy to use worksheets make tracking income and expenses easy. The cash flow and tax reports are awesome! The ability to set up recurring expense items and income items is great. I also love being able to enter detail for each expense so that I know exactly what it was for. The icing on the cake is the online rent payment. That has automated my entire process!

Cons: Nothing. I am completely happy with the software. The system is great!

Recommendations to other buyers: As a new rental property owner, I needed something simple to help me manage my income and expenses for my two rental properties. I started out just using a spreadsheet, but then I found SimplifyEm! It was perfect and exactly what I needed. It is so easy to enter my income and expense items. Then I found the online rent collection module. I immediately set both my tenants up on it, and now I don't have to wait for rent checks in the mail, go to the bank, or anything. It's all automated. The cash flow and tax reports are great, too!
