Do you offer any data import services?

*For clients with more than 25 units, Rentec Direct offers data import services to help upload your existing data from your previous system into your new Rentec Direct account. The data import service will bring data for  Tenants, Properties, Vendors, and Owners from your old system into Rentec Direct, so you don't have to enter information manually. 

In order to transfer data from another system to Rentec Direct with the data import services, you copy your data into the spreadsheet templates provided by Rentec Direct, and we will upload the information into your account. There are some limitations about the type of information we can import for you, so check out this article about Data Import Services or ask your Account Advisor for more information.
