Despite being those geographically closest to each other, communication with the residents of the Neighorhood, although completely necessary, it is very problematic: it is very difficult to agree on the schedules, and often delicate to knock on the door or call to the cellphone because you can always disturb. Moreover, usually we do not have the phone numbers or emails of all our neighbors, Which, being necessary to protect our privacy, creates the necessity for a communication space for the Home Owners Associations.
With Votoweb, You can enter the Chat (a private communication forum for your Home Owners Association), and raise any question or give any information to your neighbors, like TV is not taking well the signal or that you have to think about replacing the fence because you have seen that it is deteriorating.
In Votoweb you also have a virtual bulletin board, with the peculiarity of being able to notify a single neighbor or all with just one notification. This tool allows advising about important issues not only to the neighbors who see the physical board, but also to those travelling or in a second residence.
There is also a zone for the Association's documentation, where neighbors can share quotations for works and services required by the Neighborhood, along with the most important documents such as the minutes of the last Meeting or the insurance contract.
Decisions in the Home Owners Associations are currently taken in many cases by very few people or in a too hasty manner. It is usual to get to the Annual Meeting and find problems you did know nothing about, and with opposing sides already created. In the short time of this discussion we should face the problem and position in one of those sides, with the problems that this creates. This problem causes many residents not to attend to the Meetings.
In Votoweb all residents are able to launch votings, discuss them and vote before the Official Meetings, so that in most cases it can be known in advance whether a proposal has sufficient acceptance, and the Official Meeting becomes more the formal votation than the usual discussion.
Thereby, not only participation in the decisions and friendship between neighbours improve, increasing the democratic quality of the Home Owners Association, but also everyone can be well informed, which improves the quality of the final decisions.
In traditional neighborhoods it is very difficult to know what happens with your financial contribution. Only in the Yearly Meetings there is some financial information available, and then you are usually so concerned about the issues to be discussed, that you do not pay attention. It is well known that there have been cases in which the person who manages the accounts of a Home Owners Association diverts part of the funds illegally, taking advantage of the lack of information of the neighbors. This has also resulted in the lack of trust from society, widespread, and in most cases unfair, in those people who handle neighborhoods money.
Votoweb allows those who manage the accounts of the Association to keep neighbors updated so they can access the account status at any time, and provide residents the peace of mind and confidence of knowing that everything is transparent, Also, neighbors can know immediately if the money is being spent as intended, provide help to save money presenting quotations for the works and services in the Neighborhood, and understand the need for raising more money when there are not enough funds.
With Votoweb you can create a virtual Neighborhood, invite your neighbors, use the chat, launch and vote on proposals, share documents and the Neighborhood financial state, completely free of charge, but if you also want the best user experience for your Neighborhood, almost without limits on the documents sharing, with unique domain name and certificates for your Neighborhood, You can have it for a small monthly fee by activating the Premium Service (See versions and prices).
