Console Cloud creators Console Group announce their integration with much-loved property inspections software Inspection Manager. Console Cloud is the fastest-growing cloud-based property management software platform in Australia and New Zealand. Inspection Manager is a purpose-built app designed to make often arduous inspections simple, fast, and annoying-bug-free.
The integration between Console Cloud and Inspections Manager benefits both business’s customers. When users choose to link Console Cloud to Inspections Manager, they can use Inspections Manager for inspections, with instant and comprehensive data syncing to Console Cloud (and vice versa).
This is a huge saving on time for property managers who are used to doing double data entry to take advantage of both systems. Now: it’s just time savings all around.
“We’re solution driven, which is exactly why this product came to be,” says Inspection Manager co-founder Alan Hashem. “We have an IT company specialising in supporting Real Estate Agencies. When we looked for a solution to help them become more efficient at inspections, we couldn’t find one. So we decided to build it ourselves.”
Today, Inspection Manager has helped 20,000 users complete more than 5.5 million inspections. “Our partnership with Console is about continuing the effort to make the lives of our property managers easier and to help them be more efficient,” says Inspection Manager Head of Product Scott Shepherd. “By partnering with Console, we can provide a better service to more of our clients.”
Why the integration between Console Cloud and Inspection Manager took place
Simply, they are linked by a common goal. “Console Cloud was designed to enable property managers to do less admin and manual tasks, so that it was fundamentally less work to manage every property in a portfolio,” explains Console’s Chief Product Officer Matt McGown.
“The point is that these time savings increase an agency’s profitability. Inspection Manager is an expert in its own field, but the efficiencies gained by using both Console Cloud and Inspection Manager were lost so long as those systems didn’t talk to each other. That’s why we felt it was important to build this integration—to keep reducing that time and admin load for customers.”
Scott Shepherd agrees. “It’s about bringing together two industry leading products—Console Cloud and Inspection Manager. Both are cloud applications designed specifically to help Property Managers work smarter with technology and become more efficient.”
The Inspection Manager integration is now live in New Zealand for Console Cloud customers.
How the integration works
Console Cloud customers using Inspection Manager can link their office by activating the app from the Marketplace tab in Console Cloud. Once linked, any inspections scheduled in Console Cloud will be pushed to Inspection Manager immediately.
Users can then take full advantage of Inspection Manager functionality when completing an inspection. When they’re ready to complete their inspection, their finalised report is synced back into Console Cloud. An inspection is carried out in Inspection Manager, with a finalised report synced back into the Inspections tab in Console Cloud. Please note that inspection scheduling and entry notices are managed in Console Cloud.
