Why Bento for Real Estate and Property Management?

Why Bento for real estate?

  • Increase profitability. Profit is made in business via excellent expense management...not by gross revenue. Track and optimize expense flow across your team, brokerage and greater organization. 

  • Peace of mind. Avoid unpleasant surprises and mitigate personal liability with robust spending controls and real-time accountability dashboards. 

  • Streamline expenses. Easily export categorized expense data from Bento into Quickbooks or other accounting services. 

  • Easy to Implement and Adopt. Unlike traditional corporate credit card programs, Bento’s MasterCard does not require a credit check or impact the owner’s personal credit; anyone may qualify and use the greater platform.
