This week, I'm fortunate to be joined by fellow South Dakotan, Ray Hespen. Ray is CEO and co-founder of Property Meld, a maintenance automation software company. based in Rapid City, South Dakota.

Let's start with some performance metrics from Property Meld's 2023:

  • $723,997,461 in repairs completed
  • 8,467,099 maintenance phone calls eliminated
  • 378,082 maintenance issues prevented
  • 4.40 average resident satisfaction across all customers
  • 4,786,554 maintenance tasks automated

During our conversation, we discuss some of these metrics and how great communication can play such a critical role in maintenance automation. Ray breaks down the challenges of maintenance coordination and why property management needs to improve despite these challenges. Ray and the team at Property Meld take a holistic approach to tackling challenges in property maintenance, gathering data, and providing automations. You'll hear about that and more.

Lastly, you'll hear me plugging Property Meld's conference, Maintenance Summit in here as well. If you're in property management, either in the field or tech side, then a trip to South Dakota this year in September has got to get on your schedule.
