A property portfolio can be simple or complex. Every property is unique. As a result, each property will have maintenance needs and features to consider on a regular basis. If you own multiple properties, this can quickly become a bigger task to manage than anticipated.

Facilities maintenance software is a great tool to have. How do you find the best one? How do you find one that meets your specific needs? There are lots of great articles available to point you in the right direction. We have compiled a list of four highly recommended options based on information from three informative articles and on the one we personally use at Weaver Realty.

  • Optsy
  • Hippo CMS
  • ServiceChannel
  • eMaint CMMS


At Weaver Realty, we trust Optsy for all of our facilities maintenance clients. We love Optsy for its ability to provide the highest level of functionality so that we can meet the expectations and varying needs of our clients. Optsy is a custom field-service management software that enables us to adapt to customer needs, facilities maintenance, and customer service. The real-time responsiveness of Optsy allows our building engineers to quickly allocate resources and complete work requests remotely. Additionally, it provides data to save customers on cost, resources, and time.

Hippo CMMS

Hippo CMMS actually appears in the top three options in two separate articles. According to financesonline.com, Hippo CMMS is a top choice for facilities maintenance. It handles tasks including comprehensive work order management, maintenance planning, and safety compliance. It makes it easy to use across multiple industries, and when used correctly, it helps reduce business costs.

Hippo CMMS boasts user-friendly design that is completely web-based. In a time when many people are now working from home, it makes sense to use solutions that can be accessed anywhere at anytime. With three different price points, you can get started for as little as $39/mo after the free trial expires. If you consider using Hippo, definitely make use of the free trial to see if it’s a good fit for your properties.


According to g2.com, ServiceChannel is another good option. “ServiceChannel provides facilities managers with a single platform to source, procure, manage and pay for repair and maintenance services from commercial contractors across their enterprise.”

Property managers will likely find this to be an appealing option because ServiceChannel allows you to streamline processes with outside vendors to will maximize workflow and efficiency. To obtain current pricing on this solution, contact ServiceChannel for a custom quote.
