Smart Building Apps and BoardSpace just got SMARTER
Ottawa, Canada – November 9th, 2017
SmartBuildingApps.com, a provider of residential and commercial property management software announced today that it would be expanding its portfolio to include board management software from BoardSpace.
“We are thrilled to add BoardSpace to our software family and provide condo & co-op boards with tools for directors,” says CEO of Smart Building Apps, Denis Condie. “As soon as I met Pat Crosscombe, Founder and CEO of BoardSpace and she told me about her software for condo boards, I knew it was a no-brainer to integrate BoardSpace with my software.”
Since 1994, Denis Condie, a serial entrepreneur, has provided security services for residential and commercial properties through his company Response Security. He also learned firsthand from his customers their pain points in managing their buildings and witnessed these same concerns over and over again. Smart Building Apps was designed to meet these needs.
Pat Crosscombe is also the President of her condo board and was inspired to create BoardSpace for condo boards because of her continual frustration with getting minutes finalized, keeping track of who was doing what and the amount of time it took to find documents.
“I am delighted to be working with Smart Building Apps and look forward to introducing our combined effort to condos, housing cooperatives, HOAs and community associations across Canada and the United States,” added Pat Crosscombe. “Getting minutes done is the board’s core requirement; BoardSpace makes minutes SMART – Simple, Manageable, Accessible, Reliable, Transparent. There is a synergy between our two brands that we feel will result in a great product for our customers. Our integrated software is available now.”
The market for software targeted towards condos is strong. There are over 350,000 condo corporations in Canada and the United States. In Ontario, condominiums account for half of all new homes (2013) and in the USA, the number of condominiums has grown at approximately 4% per year.
