As part of a series of articles I am starting to look back at some of the existing Konnexsion features and the value they seek to bring you. The property finance solution is slightly different from our typical modules in that it isn't designed to support your day to day operations. Most of our core features aim to directly focus on operational impact be it via effici
A couple of weeks ago one of our customer advisory customers, Rob Mason @ RJL Property Group offered to come over to the Konnexsion offices and talk about his experiences of using our solution. What started with the intent of creating a single interview style testimonial ended up being a day spend building a number of mini video clips about various aspects of Konnexs
Well it’s only been a week since the Communications release went live and I want to thank you all for all your feedback. It gives the whole product team a boost when we hear of your experiences. (Yes the good and the bad in truth). This last release was different from most of our previous ‘new feature’ deployments as it had immediate impact on your existing daily act
It's been a couple of months since our last release. That was our marketing release where we launched the website builder in an entirely new technical infrastructure. I'm happy to say that several websites have gone live / are in build across the community. I've seen some great uses of the solution, from pre and post tenancy questionnaires to some brilliant content.
During the early hours of Sunday morning, the Konnexsion team deployed the most extensive release we have made to date. Before I eagerly talk about what we have been doing in our development rooms, I hope that you, the Konnexsion community, your friends and your families are safe and well. We have all experienced the last 12 months differently and wish for you all
We’ve talked about Unified Messaging. This video dives into receiving an inbound text message using Konnexsion. We take you through the process of managing a text message or sms when you receive one. In this case it was from our tenant. Receiving an sms is similar to receiving an email. You need to decide if the message needs to be: Linked to a tenancy Added
After you start to use Konnexsion for messaging you will quickly find that you want to make your documents and emails better visually presented. Do you want to add a disclaimer to the bottom of your mails as you sign them off? Our letterhead and email signature template features can help you with this. Letterhead is where you can add ‘company-wide’ content to
At Konnexsion we talk about unified messaging but what is it? Well it’s the consolidation of different messaging types into a single solution. The solution of course is Konnexsion, but we go beyond that. With unified messaging enabled you are able to receive and send emails and sms messages from exactly the same place. Add to this the ability to receive voice mails
The true power of the Konnexsion communication capabilities becomes evident when you start create your own personal email addresses. This can be both for each of your team members and group mailboxes to share. With group mailboxes you can setup addresses like maintenance@ or accounts@. This video takes you through the process of setting up your subdomain and the s
What would a Property Management solution designed to manage your rental business be without having a tenancy module. Within the tenancy module you are able to record your tenants details including providing them access to your Konnexsion portal. The tenancy module consists of: The Contract: Where you detail the key aspects of your tenancy agreement from start
When you first start using Konnexsion it’s a good ideal to have a look at the settings available to you so that you can configure the system to your specific needs. This video navigates you through the settings pages. Within settings you will be able to define your mailboxes, purchase and assign phone numbers and setup your calendar integration.
When to find a partner and when to build yourself? This is a question that every software developer should ask themselves as part of their pipeline planning. We have a long list of ideas in the Konnexsion pipeline. Some of those will be capabilities that we want to build ourselves and others we will partner with others. Software companies use 3rd party products behi
Konnexsion's messaging capabilities takes a Tenancy Management solution to a new level of integration into your daily life. We wanted more than a tenancy record management system when we designed Konnexsion. We wanted to provide a system that fully supported every aspect of managing your lets. The Konnexsion Messaging system combines the power of a Tenancy Manage
Do you want to be an HMO landlord with all that comes with it? You may be just starting out or an experienced landlord exploring ways to diversify your portfolio or expand your revenue. Either way, you will have a lot to consider before you proceed. There is more involved in setting up and managing an HMO. It is true that the yields are typically greater than the ave
Are you thinking of converting one or more of your buy to let properties into an HMO? If so, you will be addressing the demand for flexible and affordable housing resulting from the UK trend where the average size of a typical household is declining whilst at the same time the population is increasing. Much is made of the additional responsibilities and legal obligat
At Konnexsion we like to read Property Journals and online articles. I've just read one from Real Business talking about Improving your Property Investments. What caught my eye, and what I liked about this article, was that it diverted from the usual approach of talking about Finance, Refurbishment and other typical Property Development issues. Instead, it narrowed
What is customer relationship management (CRM)?Customer relationship management, or CRM for short, is a tool that’s often mentioned when discussing sales functions. As a means to stay in contact with, follow up, and keep a record of your interactions with both current and potential prospects or customers, it’s one of the best methods to ultimately convert the busines
I read an interesting article earlier this week which was reacting to an ARPM report suggesting Let only Agents were losing out on significant income by not offering Full Management services. (https://www.propertyreporter.co.uk/landlords/new-research-reveals-let-only-agents-are-losing-80-of-potential-income-per-tenancy.html).Of course revenue is a hot topic at the mo
Property and Asset Register The asset allows you to manage your properties alongside your tenancy agreements. Your property management business is more than just about tenants you also have a set of assets that you need to manage. We believe Konnexsion needs to be just as strong in the management of your assets as it is in managing the tenancy. The reason for this?
Tenancy Agreement Mistakes Made By LandlordsThere are many positives about being a buy-to-let investor - but ensuring the paperwork is right every time isn’t often one of them. With ‘Right to Rent’ checks, council safety inspections, energy performance certificates - not to mention a complex stack of tax rules: the pile of regulation seems to grow month on month.Agai
