Capitalizing on the Right Resources to Transform Your Business
How PayLease gained the support and guidance needed to achieve more rapid growth.
Between billing, tenant contracts, maintenance requests, utilities, and other day-to-day tasks, property managers have a hectic job. Collecting and processing checks from residents only adds to their duties.
In 2003, PayLease was founded to create a better, more convenient way to pay and collect rent. Today, it supports over 4,500 property management companies and homeowners associations with online payment and utility expense management tools. The company’s solutions simplify property managers’ workflows, increase their net operating income, and enhance the way they connect with tenants.
Dirk Wakeham joined PayLease as CEO after gaining experience as an executive at other Vista companies, including Kibo Software and Cvent. From his perspective, it was refreshing that Vista put such a strong emphasis on talent, culture, and people development. In particular, Wakeham has found Vista has the ability to bring in strong hires, provide training, measure satisfaction both quantitatively and qualitatively, and improve employee productivity over time.
