Discover additional details about property management and property management systems.  Read "Property Management Systems - from A to Z"; a book identifying key topics related to managing properties with software programs. The book should be of value to both management and staff in understanding the many functions of property management and the systems that suplement and/ or replace traditionsl operations and  activities. It should be a special benefit for property managers beginning their career.  It fovuses primarily on California fee property management and its many state mandates and requirements.

The contents were derived from 30+  years of property management systems experience and appears to be unique, partly based on the scarcity of other similar publications with similar content.  It is likely that this book is an example of what future property management "how to" and text books will be like.
