Aspect Property Manager does just about everthing that you'd expect a property management system to do.

If we didn't publish a "Feature List", then someone would be bound to assume that there aren't many features.

Wrong!  There are so many features that we doubt anyone will read to the end of the list! 

The features below are listed in seven broad categories

  • Administration
  • Common Items
  • Main Screen Details
  • Landlords
  • Properties
  • Tenants
  • Suppliers
