Product Highlights


  • Streamlined Reporting

    Genesis2 combines a comprehensive property and tenant database with report writing capability, and comes with over 140 industry-standard reports that can be exported quickly to Adobe® PDF, Microsoft Word®, or Microsoft Excel®. This wide-ranging suite of reports and powerful real-time analytics features drill down from summary to underlying detail that can be accessed with a single mouse click.

    For commercial clients, Genesis2 provides automated functionality for estimated CAM reconciliation. With a simple report, you can compare the allocated CAM charges against the billed charges for year-end reconciliation. The report can be shared with your tenants and the charges or credits can be easily posted to their accounts. For retail properties, the overage module calculates and posts the additional charges due based on sales figures submitted by the tenant, and for leases with price index clauses a lease escalation function is available.

  • Simplified Work Order Tracking

    Online work orders track the materials, labor, and other information related to the work on a property or a unit. Genesis2 lets you enter, edit, and post work orders, add specific instructions for staff and vendors, document the status of any project, and use work order reports as dispatch tools. And your technicians can create, update, and close work orders from the field using a mobile device.

    With Genesis2, there is no need to purchase a separate program to track maintenance information. Genesis2 not only tracks your work order data (vendor, work order status, commission, etc.), but also can create both charges and payables from the Work Order screen.

  • Optimized A/R and A/P Functions

    Processing tenant receipts can be labor-intensive, but Genesis2 automates this process for you. Smart input methods and optional OCR scanning streamline the recording of tenant receipts. And whether you are dealing with simple residential rent or complex commercial leases, Genesis2 provides all the easy-to use tools you need to track your payables in both cash and accrual accounting.

    Genesis2 can post monthly charges with the click of a button. With the Detailed Receipts function, dollar amounts are automatically applied to charges as receipts are entered. Payable features include vendor-based expense accounts, electronic payments to owners and vendors, and partial payments. Other controls include the ability to put holds on individual invoices and vendor accounts, and stopping payments to vendors whose insurance has expired.
