Make The Switch To Ratio Utility Billing and Sub-Metering
Utility Billing Solutions for Homeowners Associations, Condominiums, and Co-Ops
As a condominium or homeowners association (HOA) manager, you have many responsibilities – perhaps the most important of which is optimizing the value of the units within the HOA or condominium complex. With the implementation of community association management software, you can centralize information and automate utility billing workflows, resulting in increased efficiency, reduced costs, and a greater competitive edge. Commercial Water & Energy’s proprietary utility billing software is well equipped with tools that allow you to track ownership and charges, calculate fees, collect payments, monitor maintenance, and more.
Utility Billing Services Designed for Condominiums, Co-Ops, and HOAs
Commercial Water & Energy has specific utility billing solutions designed around the unique needs of homeowner associations, condominiums, and co-ops. Through our utility billing services, we can generate an extra copy of a bill in each batch so that it is sent to the condo owner and tenant, customize any fee and rate, track collections of any of those fees independently, and set up different rate structures within the same community for low income, section eight, or medical/senior discount residents. A ratio utility billing system (RUBS) is one of the utility management services offered by Commercial Water & Energy. As part of this program, you can allocate charges by building, square footage, number of bedrooms, bathrooms, beds, occupants, and even sub-metered consumption.
Want to add resident-specific notes on your invoices that relate to certain tenant accounts or global notes that apply to all residents? With Commercial Water & Energy’s condominium and HOA software, this is no problem. You can even send customized late notices to groups of tenants based on outstanding amount due and aged balances. Our diverse payment options allow your residents to make one-time payments online from their checking or savings account or with their debit or credit card. Alternatively, they can have automatic monthly payments deducted from their back account. Process payments from your community with our extremely efficient batch process, and import entire lockbox or Excel files for payment. Want robust reporting? Again, this is no problem. With our software solutions, you can receive a staggering number of metrics for any historical time period and each report contains multiple formatting options.
