Collecting estimates is easier than ever.
Introducing our newest tool, Estimates. With this feature, you can easily create estimates for one or more vendors from a single maintenance request. You can collect details to perform the necessary work requirements in one single location.
Why estimates will work for you.
Property Managers often require one or more estimates on a maintenance request. When you use our Estimates tool, you can easily create and approve estimates within a single work order from multiple vendors.
How does it work?
Resident Submits Maintenance Request
Your resident will login to Property Meld to submit a work order.
Create an Estimate Request
From the original Meld, you can create an estimate for one or more vendors. Optional deadlines can be specified to receive an estimate, too.
Vendors Gather Information
Vendors can chat and schedule visits with the resident about the work order prior to submission. From there, they can submit their detailed quote for the job.
Property Manager Reviews Estimate
If the amount is less than NTE (Not-to-Exceed), they'll approve one estimate. If the amount is greater than NTE, the property manager can forward it to the owner for approval.
Maintenance Request Assigned to Vendor
Once an estimate is approved, the vendor is instantly assigned to the work order.
Other Estimates Close Automatically
Once an estimate is accepted, other vendors are notified automatically.
Enter Estimates into your maintenance process.
Improve efficiency and resolve maintenance requests quicker. You’ll see results as resident satisfaction, retention, and renewals increase.
