Best Software for Managing Community Associations

To manage associations today, management teams will require more advanced software technology solutions such as ManageCasa’s association management platform. HOA managers rely on it to keep to protect budgets, optimize resident services and cash flow, achieve transparency, serve boards, and make communities successful in so many more ways.

Compliance Rules, Budgets and Expectations

Homeowners and residents have higher expectations of their communities and generally seek a higher quality of life within them.

Association boards too expect impeccable management and amazing service for residents. 

Given the pre-eminence of digital devices and software being used by everyone, it comes as no surprise that software-as-a-service applications have arisen to meet all stakeholders expectations.  ManageCasa provides modern digital tools help create efficiencies which empower community association managers/staff in every aspect of their daily work.

The productivity gains have been substantial.

The bar for association software has been raised, and old legacy or off-the-shelf software is actually creating liabilities, wasting funding, and lowering service quality.  New solutions with extended features deliver the benefits you're hoping for.  You'll find them in ManageCasa's comprehensive association management suite.

Beyond the Basics to True Empowerment

Some software such as ManageCasa™, go beyond basic association software with full-fledged property management features to allow property management companies to pursue association management projects. The features are awesome and pricing is affordable, and an all-in-one management dashboard makes learning and work easy.

For serious, experienced association management companies, this next generation of association management tools is a must-have. In fact, association boards will demand it.

CAI & Foundation for Community Association Research Report

According to CAIonline and the Foundation for Community Association Research, a quarter of the US population lives in a community association.

In 2023, there were 365,000 communities encompassing 28.2 million housing units and 75.5 million residents.  California has one-seventh of US community associations (about 50,000). Associations employ over 100,000 individuals, and have 2.4 million board/committee members (CAI).

Community managers collect almost $100 billion in assessments, fees, and other revenues. While that may seem high, it’s only tapping into the full value of services associations deliver and could deliver with the right business tools.

Community Management Tasks

A community association’s software is the foundation for every aspect of community management from maintenance, to board meeting support, accounting and financial tools, to resident communications and dues and fine payment collection.

Communications with your board and its members, document management, grounds maintenance, invoicing/ticketing, accounting, and fee collections likely are the most frequent tasks your software helps you perform.

It’s difficult to imagine operating an association efficiently without a system that is easy to learn and use, while giving you the reliability and accuracy in accounting you must have.

HOA and community management is all about automation and efficiency and large association management teams like complete and scalable solutions with professional-grade accounting and financial utility.
