Woodsmoke Ranch, a private community with 1,467 lots, faced challenges in communication and transparency. With a need for a more efficient system to manage their operations and enhance resident engagement, they embarked on a journey to find the right software solution.
Lack of Transparency
Residents felt that the board was not transparent. The community had no public space to share information, except for their website, which was limited to owners.
There was a need for a platform that could facilitate better communication between the board and the residents.
The board was initially divided on the need for a new software solution, with some members skeptical about its necessity and cost-effectiveness.
Woodsmoke Ranch began their search for a software solution that would address their challenges. They explored several options, but many fell short due to lack of communication and value. The turning point was when they encountered Condo Control.
Unlike competitors, Condo Control's representative was proactive, responsive, and knowledgeable. They addressed queries promptly and even brought in higher-ups when needed.
Condo Control’s representative organized a Zoom meeting with the entire board, answering questions and showcasing the software's capabilities. His presentation was so compelling that by the end, the board was almost unanimous in their decision.
Initially, some board members were concerned about the cost. However, they soon realized that the software would pay for itself after evaluating their current paper and operation costs and the potential savings.
