It has created new possibilities and opportunities for consumers, investors, and businesses alike. Fintech has especially influenced property management by improving efficiency, reducing costs, and enhancing the overall experience. Digital platforms make transactions and administrative tasks easier while comprehensive software options automate complex processes and support better decision-making. These tools empower rental property owners to streamline operations, save money, and provide excellent services. By leveraging financial technologies, we can revolutionize how we manage our investment properties. THE ROLE OF FINTECH IN PROPERTY MANAGEMENT: ADVANCEMENTS AND OPPORTUNITIES
THE CURRENT LANDSCAPE OF PROPERTY MANAGEMENT
Traditional property management methods have long relied on manual processes and in- person interactions for tasks like rent collection and maintenance requests and paper-based transactions such as written checks and printed reports, coupled with basic online tools like spreadsheets. However, these traditional, manual tasks are time-consuming, labor-intensive, and
require significant manpower. Moreover, paper-based systems slow communication, complicate maintenance request handling, and pose storage and retrieval challenges. They are also vulnerable to damage or loss and lack the analytical capabilities and real- time insights their digital counterparts provide.
