We’re happy to announce the latest update to the RentPost system. Just this past week we’ve been pushing out a series of releases around two different systems. The first is our email system. We’ve made some infrastructure improvements to how email is handled and delivered through RentPost. Our hope is that this will continue to increase our deliverability rate. We understand when emails are sent from RentPost, you expect reliable delivery, and this is why we’ve continued to improve our email infrastructure.
Also we’ve modified how recurring late fees are added to the ledger for tenants. In the past, when you had a recurring late fee schedule setup, RentPost would add, each day matching the schedule, a new late fee charge to the tenant ledger. This has been improved to now increase the amount of the latest late fee existing on the ledger. So, as each day that matches your late fee schedule where a charge is to be added, RentPost will now add the fee to the last existing late fee on the tenant’s account. If you wish, you can actually adjust the amount of that late fee at any time and RentPost will simply add to it again based on the schedule. If you wish to add a late fee that won’t be modified by the system baed on the late fee schedule, just give it a unique name.
We’ve just pushed out a new release that includes support for #9 standard double window envelopes (invoice double window) as well as #10 standard single window envelopes for all your tenant statements. It will actually support a few others as well, but these are specifically the ones tested and for which the tenant statements were designed.
The new design brings some other changes to improve clarity on the statement and overall layout enhancements as well. Also as part of this update, and part of a few smaller past updates, we’ve addressed and improved the following particulars.
It’s been a minute since we last spoke about updates. So, as I’m sure you can imagine, we’ve been really busy. We’ve been diligently working on many core enhancements to the RentPost platform that will enable us to, not only provide a faster and more robust experience, but also pave the way to lots of new and exciting features.
The latest update that’s just been released is the second to last in our core update series. While there is a lot going on under the hood with this update, there isn’t a lot that meets the eye. That all said, this is a super exciting update for us, as we move forward.
Included with this update are a number of bug fixes, speed enhancements, and various other updates such as the contacts now having a new “Other” classification for generic contacts. All contacts, now, within the system, have received a huge overhaul with how they’re handled.
Tutorial videos have arrived! We have created many different videos that will guide you in making the most out of your Rentpost account. Check them out on our YouTube channel or on our support forums under video tutorials.
Some of the videos include: how to add a unit and tenants, how to create late fee schedules and management fee structures, moving out tenants, and every angle in creating and submitting work orders. There is even a video for a tenant account, so you can see the simplistic process of a new tenant creating their own Rentpost portal. You can also share the video with them if they need guidance!
We will continue to create videos so you can really utilize the software and make life a little easier. Please, let us know if there is anything within the site you would like to see in action.
We’ve just added support for all of RentPost’s awesome property management features in our Aqua plan, starting at only $29/mo. We’ve heard from many smaller property management companies and others just getting started that they needed a cheaper entry point. Well, we’re announcing just that. So, now you can get all the great features of RentPost for even less.
Additionally, we’ve added some upgrades and improvements in our latest release. Most of these improvements center around your charges added to tenants and getting more insight. You’ll see upgrades to your tenant statements, tenant profiles, and more.
We look forward to seeing you around!
