Condo Website or Condo Management Software / Portal. Which should you choose?
Using a website for your strata, homeowners association, condo, or co-op helps to simplify community management.
The residential community can stay up to date without having to find a notice board, it can share information or talk about communal development through a website forum.
Some strata communities will think of choosing a static website over a portal because of a common misconception that static websites are good enough for everything. But this is not the case. Using a static website for a condo, strata, or HOA can cause many problems. From the extended amount of time it takes to develop and the associated costs, to the amount of time it actually takes to maintain and update the content afterward.
Using a static website as your strata portal requires web development expertise for creating new pages, updating, or even for making smaller changes. Even if you have to create a simple news announcement, you will be required to hire someone with knowledge of web development. If you want to do it yourself, you will have to learn about creating and developing websites, which is usually something no strata council, condo board, or homeowners association members want to take on as an additional task.
These websites are not very useful or efficient. Once a website is up and running, a resident or member has to maintain it to make sure everything is up to date. This day and age, people don't have a lot of time to go to a website to find information. It is better if the information reaches them and they are notified when needed. Imagine if you post something on your simple website, something important. Well, nobody in your community would know about it unless they visit your website. When was the last time you have visited the same website every day?
