Rentec Direct Product Development Update August 2019

Property management can be so rewarding, but it certainly has its fair share of bumps along the way. At Rentec Direct, we strive to provide software to genuinely make your day a little smoother, which is why we are always tweaking and updating to add value to your software. Everything is designed to make your job as a landlord or manager just a little easier.

It’s no secret that your Development Team works hard on big feature updates and major enhancements–particularly those highly requested features. That said, the behind-the-scenes smaller software updates and issue fixes are vital to ensure your experience with the software is a great one. The developers work closely with the Client Success Team and our clients to find out what fixes and enhancements need to be done in order to make the software better and more efficient for you.  

In-house, the team refers to smaller updates as a bug fix, QuickFix, HotFix, or issue report, and large updates as Features or Enhancements. We know you are busy, so we won’t report every tiny fix or update to you; nonetheless, you can be assured that the development team is always hard at work improving the software for your needs.

Here’s a look at what the Development Team has been working on for the month of August 2019.
