RPA in Real Estate

The real estate industry is heavily occupied with multiple data processing tasks, such as management of documents, inventory, and key processes like procurement, accounting, etc. The voluminous document and data-based business processes in real estate reduce the efficiency of employees and industry players. Decision-making becomes an arduous task as the available information becomes limited, thus business management processes slow down. 

In the era of digital transformation, Robotic Process Automation (RPA) has a remarkable role to play in the evolution of the real estate industry. The technology will allow real estate companies to automate laborious, manual tasks letting real estate professionals concentrate their energy on assignments that add value to the business.

Deloitte reveals that RPA is a proven business technology helping companies with scarce technical resources to bridge the gap between IT systems in the digital era. RPA can be incorporated across IT systems via the front-end unlike traditional automation enabling integration with virtually any software used by an employee.  

The popular Robotic Process Automation (RPA) use cases below mentioned display how the technology brings various advantages to the real estate industry.

Tenant Onboarding

In the real-estate industry, tenant onboarding procedures can be strenuous and time-consuming as they involve a high volume of manual tasks which can be burdensome for the clients.

It is possible to verify data on each application rapidly and simplify processes to enroll tenants into an online system by leveraging RPA technology. Robotic Process Automation bots can be programmed in tune with the demands of real estate companies. So, business process management is grounded on rule-based processes.

Creating new tenant applications, criminal background checks, tenant approvals/disapprovals, and verification of employment, income, and reference are some of the specific uses of RPA by real-estate businesses.

AML (Anti-Money Laundering) / KYC (Know Your Customer) Compliance

Just like in other industries, RPA is becoming a sought-after solution to streamline compliance processes in the real estate business. RPA bots can certify current customer information on transactions, obtaining customer data from various internal sources. It is a smooth and rapid process to authenticate client data or send them to the staff for review. R

Portfolio Management

Portfolio management can be described as the process or technique of directing real estate assets to preserve and increase the value of the property. Businesses in the real estate industry can realize this by managing diverse assets or selling and buying individual portfolio components.

Payment Reminders

Late payments are a troublesome and common issue regarding the business process management for the companies in the real estate and housing services sector.

Document Processing & Data Entry

A huge amount of documentation including property deeds, lease agreements, brokerage contracts, vendor payables and credit applications, and property tax assessments have to be filed and kept. Accordingly, it keeps the staff in the real-estate business busy filling out and filing necessary documents, and physically searching for information when a need arises.

Creating intelligent bots through Robotic Process Automation can be an efficient solution for fulfilling manual, repetitive, often rules-based processes and tasks.

On the other hand, assessing the value of a REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust) in the first place can be tiresome and time-consuming. It requires the collection and processing of data from a variety of sources, then running them through a model to calculate the NAV (Net Asset Value).

Here comes RPA into the scene enabling automation of the process and enhancing data accuracy, thus improving NAV calculations. Consequently, there is a drastic time and cost-saving besides available data is achieved to make more informed decisions.

Back-Office Accounting Processes
