Product Update August 2020

At Rentec Direct, we know how hard you work each day, and we strive to make your job as a landlord or property manager easier. Your development team is continually making improvements to your software. These alterations are being tested and implemented daily all to ensure that your software is truly adding value. After all, meeting your needs and streamlining your daily management tasks is our highest priority.

We know everyone gets excited to see big announcements implementing exciting new features, but you should know that your Rentec Direct Development Team is always hard at work in the interim. Your development team not only works hard on those major enhancements but also on all the small-but-important behind the scenes work. These smaller updates are still worth getting excited about; they include those crucial fixes that ensure that your experience with the software only gets better. 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 for your daily needs.

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 your time is valuable, so while we may not update you on every tiny fix or update to you; you can rest assured that the development team is always hard at work improving the software for you.

Here’s a look at what the Development Team has been working on for the month of August 2020.
