Connected community: A roadmap for a successful transition

In the previous Part1 edition, we talked about the basics of digital property management and transitioning from a traditional to a digital community management model. Now, we will introduce you to 5 steps to successfully transition to a connected community.

A connected community is a community that has been brought together by technology. In this type of community, people are able to interact and connect with each other in ways that were not possible before. For example, residents can now communicate with each other through social media, messaging apps, or community forums. Property managers can use real estate and property technology to create a sense of community by hosting online events or social initiatives.

There are many advantages to having a smart community. For one, it can help reduce crime rates and create a sense of safety for residents. It can also help promote social interaction and allow people to connect with each other on a deeper level. In addition, a connected community can improve communication between the property manager and the residents. With the power of PropTech, community managers can also engage residents and unite their efforts towards more sustainable community living.

Creating and managing a connected community can be challenging, but it is worth the effort. Here are some tips to help you get started.

Here's how property managers can successfully create a connected community in 5 steps:

  • Acknowledge that property technology is changing how people live and work in communities. The best way to approach this step is through property management software that allows property managers to access more information about their property and the people living in it than ever before. An integrated software gives property managers the ability to see how people are interacting with their property and each other, as well as identify areas where they can improve.

  • Assess and prioritize technological needs in your organization. One of the most important elements of property management is the ability to analyze property data and use it to make decisions about how best to utilize your property. This includes understanding what types of technology will improve the property and what residents need in order to be comfortable and content.

  • Outline a plan for technology implementation and measure its success. Without a clear plan, property managers can quickly become overwhelmed with the number of technological changes happening in their industry. Creating a plan allows for better organization and more efficient use of resources.

  • Create an organizational culture that values change and innovation at all levels of the organization. Property managers must be willing to change the way they do business in order to successfully transition to a connected community. This includes embracing new technology, but also changing how property managers interact with residents and property staff.

  • Identify key leadership roles with responsibility for guiding the transition to connected communities. Leadership is critical when transitioning to a connected property. Community and property managers must identify key leaders within their organization who are willing and able to help guide this transition at all levels.

Property managers who want to create a successful transition to a connected community through PropTech should follow this roadmap. It is important to remember that the process will not be easy, but with hard work and dedication, you can create a connected community that meets the needs of your residents and owners.
