Community Associations are going online. But does it make sense for your community?
Gone are the days when only the largest or most highly sophisticated Homeowner Associations embracedthe tools of modern technology in an effort to get their internal operations running more effectively and efficiently. Considering that home-based internet use is now at a remarkable 85%, it’s no wonder today communities of every size, every socioeconomic group and every age demographic have shifted their thinking. The question is no longer, is your association big enough or tech-savvy enough to embrace a Web site? Today, associations around the country and around the globe have begun asking themselves in record numbers, how long must we wait before we begin taking advantage of these new freedoms…and what is the price of continued inaction? The phone calls. The headaches.The repetitive tasks. The reduction or elimination of these resource-depleting factors constitutes a primary concern not only for Management Companies and Large Scale Homeowners Associations but for the tiniest of communities, as well.
