You Are Loving the Remodel as Much as We Do!

The Rentec Direct Remodel has been officially live throughout 2022 for all clients. Your fellow landlords and property managers have been able to save time and move through their day even more efficiently with the many advantages the remodel provides.

We are so excited to share all of the new design’s advantages with our amazing clients! Check out these glowing responses to the new design.

“I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the new portal.”– Kim W

“I wanted to brag on a new behavior in the software that I LOVE. I love that in the property screen I can now also type a tenant and it will display the property at which that tenant resides. Didn’t use to be able to do that in the old layout and I really like that new feature. Good Job!!!” – Christopher P

This website redesign is fantastic, well done to you and your team!” – Chris F

If you haven’t tried it out yet, what are you waiting for? There’s no time like the present, and your Success Team is always there for you if you have any questions.

Important Note for Legacy Software Clients:

Not only will the remodeled software save you time, it offers additional features that you cannot find in the Legacy version of the Rentec Direct software. As new integrations and exciting new updates continue, these will only be released within the remodel.

To get all the features you love and new features you’re sure to adore, click the “Try It Now” button on the Summary Page.

Updates will no longer be made to the Legacy version of the software, and we want to ensure you have the best bang for your buck. Switching to the new version is completely free; get started with the Remodel today to get the best experience possible.



Your Rentec Direct development team hasn’t slowed down. They’ve been working hard to add helpful fixes and updates to the remodel, and are even working on new integrations that are sure to make your day easier.

In-house, the team refers to the smaller updates as a bug fix, QuickFix, HotFix, or issue report, and large updates as Features or Enhancements. Behind the scenes, a lot goes on to make your software the best it can be, and Q1’s updates will surely show that.

We enjoy providing these highlights so can stay abreast of any important updates and can be sure they are always hard at work improving the software for your needs.

Here’s a look at what the Development Team has been working on for Q1 of 2022.
