March 27, 2024 12:00 PM - 01:30 PM - Virtual

In this two-part series, we delve into the digital transformation of condominium management. Part 1 serves as a stark reminder that the condominium industry has transitioned, and boards and service providers need to catch up swiftly. This session immerses participants in a technical exploration of cutting-edge technologies, including payables/receivables systems, accounting portals and digital record-keeping solutions, and of course various forms of electronic communications and engagement. Furthermore, we hope to explore tools and resources for managers to facilitate the integration of new systems, emphasizing the acknowledgment of associated costs and the essential commitment to keep pace with industry advancements.
