About Oakwood Management Operations
The following is a brief overview of what we consider to be the key elements that make up our proven corporate structure:
Training Department: Our in-house training department provides entry level, advanced and continued industry education and comprehensive site support using up to date technology. To compliment this program national training and motivational speakers are brought in throughout the year for company wide seminars.
Accounting Department: We utilize Yardi software, a widely recognized and easy to understand property software program providing Owners up to date statements. We also provide corporate monitoring of lease contracts from applications through potential legal services and collection.
Marketing and Advertising Department: This department offers a comprehensive range of services from design/production of advertising material, with the benefit of corporate discounts, to budget based, site specific marketing campaigns. We also understand the huge impact technology is having in our market. Moreover we appreciate the importance of its effects on the different demographic segments we market to. Brand recognition is optimized by both our corporate marketing website, www.MyPlaceColumbus.com along with individual community websites utilizing the trademarked "MyPlace" prefix. Example, www.MyPlaceTheCove.com.
Maintenance/Purchasing Department: A substantial cost savings is enjoyed at our communities due to our centralized purchasing department who negotiate volume pricing and monitors all warranted site expenditures. Regional maintenance facilitators oversee capital improvement management, employment of preventative maintenance and energy conservation programs along with providing a senior level of maintenance expertise which curbs outside contractor cost. In addition to our regional facilitators, Oakwood offers a specialized maintenance team available to all sites on an as needed basis.
