The dance of maintenance requests and communications can often become a cumbersome tango, where neither party truly feels in step.

In this world of digital advancements, shouldn’t there be a smoother way for landlords and tenants to communicate, track, and resolve maintenance issues? An approach that doesn’t involve sifting through cluttered inboxes or chasing after unreturned voicemails?

Enter Azibo's maintenance and messaging tool. Designed with both landlords and tenants in mind, this tool aims to transform the traditional maintenance communication paradigm.

How It Works

When you log into your Azibo account, landlords will find the maintenance and messaging features already enabled and at their service. This intuitive system allows for effortless initiation of conversations and addressing of maintenance requests, irrespective of the tenant or unit in question.

Recognizing that every landlord's approach is unique, the system grants the flexibility to adjust tenant permissions, ensuring a customized and controlled experience for every property under management.

The empowerment doesn't stop at the landlord's door; tenants, too, have their tools for efficient communication. If the feature isn't active, tenants can approach their landlord with a simple request to activate the settings manually.

Once enabled, initiating conversations and lodging maintenance requests is a breeze. Azibo ensures that every tenant's concern is appropriately voiced and effectively addressed through clear steps and a user-friendly interface.

Seamless maintenance and communication

For both landlords and tenants, the benefits are clear. Landlords can experience streamlined management, more transparent communications, and happier tenants.
