Tenant Emergency Alert Solution, Setup in 4 Steps

Handling emergencies can be tricky for landlords. Tenants aren’t always home, and they don’t always answer calls or knocks at the door. Delivering messages to tenants automatically and being able to deliver more than one message to the same tenant would ensure they got the alert. The tenant management industry recognizes the convenience, as well as the safety and efficiency benefits of emergency alerts that can be delivered to tenants even when they are out or unavailable.

However, such automated technology comes with its own suite of issues including technical training. Knowledge of technical tools can also be an issue. Training on a technological solution can take time and energy that property managers may not have the time to complete. This adds time and financial investments, and concerns about being available to tenants during the training period. Implementing automation correctly allows you to build a custom service solution for your tenants.

Automation offers you the opportunity to still have personal connections with tenants and take care of their emergency situations. These tools also allow you to quickly and routinely provide information and communication to tenants about property emergencies. From evacuation to unit entries, exterminators to plumbers, automation can ensure that tenants are informed and aware, and improve relationships between tenants and landlords.

In this blog, we have explained our top reasons to build a tenant emergency alert solution:

1. Urgent Communication

As mentioned above, emergencies are a big concern for many. By implementing digital emergency alerts, you’re not just preserving the health of tenants who might be negatively affected by an emergency, you’re also protecting your relationship with tenants.  What’s more, you also gain an opportunity to foster community, which develops long-term tenants that are willing to help each other and maintain the area.

2. Expedience of Communication

Any emergency requires quick responses, and not just from emergency personnel. For example, if an apartment building’s hot water heater breaks, the property manager can take several calls from tenants as they discover the issue, or the manager can issue an alert letting them know that the issue has already been reported and a technician is on the way. This not only notifies tenants quickly, but also cuts down on the number of calls the office staff will have to field, leaving them available to respond more effectively to other issues on the property.

3. Scaling Up

As property managers or landowners increase their portfolio, they need a solution that can scale with them and handle multiple properties. They need to be able to send alerts to individual tenants, properties, or property groups. The Tenant Emergency Alert use case can handle this easily.

4. Stronger Relationships

Making even partially digitized tenant emergency alerts could be a big deal for tenants who struggle with physical ones for one reason or another. The shift to a more broadly accessible system and opening the door to other convenience services like online maintenance requests will go a long way toward tenant goodwill. Demonstrating care and thoughtfulness for tenant experiences will make tenants feel valued, appreciated and encourage them to remain in the property.
