Gateway Property Management Corporation is one of Canada's largest privately owned residential property management companies. With over 120 dedicated corporate employees in Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary, London, Kitchener, and Montreal, Gateway provides top-notch service to over 45,000 people living in Gateway managed properties.

Gateway contracted Deversus for the second time to develop a custom web application that would allow the company to manage their vast portfolio of condominium buildings online. The web application allows Gateway to upload detailed information about the thousands of condominium units they manage.

In addition to the information about each unit, the web application has also automated the entire process of distributing documents pertaining to each condo building. Gateway is now able to upload and store documents online, such as strata meeting minutes, bylaws, and engineering documents, which are then automatically accessible for purchase via Gateway's website.

The custom web application has completely changed the way customers interact with Gateway. Prospective tenants and buyers are now able to search and view condo information via Gateway's website, as well as contact associated sellers of vacant units. Lawyers, realtors, and other industry professionals are now able to find and purchase official condo documents and forms a la carte. The convenient feature allows these professionals to pay for their orders online and download the requested documents in a zipped package immediately after the purchase is complete. Condo unit owners and council members are also able to register online for access to their building's confidential condo information, including official documents.
