Pricing

Consulting Services and Technical Assistance

Need help thinking through your information tracking needs or structuring your asset management functions but not necessarily a software system? Contact us for hourly or packaged rates.

App Implementation

Ready to get started with the App? The Fact Book App implementation pricing generally ranges from $100-$500 per property for initial set-up. The entire process can generally be completed within a month.

This involves: Comprehensive overview of your real estate data needs and processes with design and development of the system including:

  • 15 categories with 150 default fields that can be renamed or removed
  • 10 additional custom fields per category
  • 25 custom reports
  • 10 workflows and/or email alerts
  • One-time bulk upload of all data.
  • Training to learn the system and to manage the data and reports
  • Assistance to integrate the system into your ongoing processes and communicate changes organization-wide
  • Unlimited support for the first month of use

On-Going App Fees

Because The Fact Book App is built on a platform provided by Quick Base®, purchase of the underlying software from Quick Base® is required. Monthly fees start at $15 per user per month (for your entire portfolio) and depend on data needs and number of users. See www.QuickBase.com/pricing. Quick Base® does not require a contract and is billed on a monthly basis per their Terms of Service.

After App Implementation

What if I decide I don’t like the system or want to change to a different system? Your Quick Base® license is month-to-month so you can always cancel your ongoing charges at any time and your first 30 days are free. You also control your own data and can download any or all of it at any time into excel files for import into any other format.

Change your mind on what to track or need more help? Hourly or packaged support help is available any time.

Transition Strategies

You may be thinking, we can’t implement another system and dedicate anyone to gather all of this information.

You probably have most of this information in spreadsheets in some form – much of that can be copied and pasted onto the set-up spreadsheet. The rest of it can be added as it makes sense. It’s better to build a home and begin to furnish it slowly than refuse to move in until it’s completely furnished.

If you’re not the one usually gathering the data or creating the reports, you may assume that these are not time consuming tasks for your staff. Unless you have this information in a database, your staff is likely spending a large amount of time just administering data and assembling it instead of spending time on more valuable activities.
