The U.A.E. property management software market generated revenue of $53.9 million in 2021, while the Saudi Arabia property management software market generated $37.0 million. This can be ascribed to the evolving requirement for remote property management among firms that manage properties in the two countries but do not have an office there.
For instance, amidst the pandemic, people prefer to work from home rather than from a local office, head office, or a global branch of an organization, therefore requiring mobility in terms of access to office resources and data. To keep the flow and speed of work uninterrupted and manage such a workforce, many organizations are looking for solutions for managing properties and other integrated property-management-related tasks, such as finding tenants, collecting rent, and managing rent agreements.
Another major factor that drives the industry is the increasing construction activities. The construction industry is expected to witness strong growth in the coming years owing to a large number of construction projects in the ongoing and tender/bidding phases related to the urban residential, transport, and utility sectors. For instance, the government in the U.A.E. has approved $15.5 billion for the construction of health, educational, and cultural infrastructure. Similarly, in Saudi Arabia government is focusing on enhance urban development under the Vision 2030.
Cloud-based software programs store data remotely or on the cloud, which gives users the flexibility to access it from anywhere, since it keeps the data on a server. Cloud systems are often cheaper than on-premises systems and offer better data security.
The demand for property management solutions in the residential and commercial sectors has risen in recent years due to the availability of higher internet bandwidths and virtual storage. Additionally, due to the advancements in information and communication technology, property management solutions have become crucial in the residential and commercial sectors. As a result, automation is being applied to a variety of property management operations related to leases, notifications, vacancies, invoices, and circulars.
