We believe landlords and real estate investors of all experience levels should have access to modern, simple yet powerful technology to empower them to successfully build, grow, and manage their real estate investments.
A Review of 2022
2022 was our “go live” year. We launched our core banking platform in March and have witnessed rapid growth since. We are proud to have thousands of active customers across every state in America. Since our launch, we have continuously optimized our product and launched many great features, including:
Virtual Cards – We quietly launched Virtual Cards last week; we will publicly share details of this launch next week! Virtual Cards allow you to automate your bookkeeping, have greater control over spend, and provide a safer and more convenient way to pay.
Wires & 3rd Party ACH Payments – Whether purchasing an investment property, paying a contractor, or returning a security deposit, making payments is a critical function for landlords. Wires and 3rd Party ACH payments are just our initial payment products. More below on what is coming on the payment Roadmap for 2023.
Mobile Check Deposit – Deposit a check into your Baselane banking account from your mobile phone with a snap of a picture.
Tax Reporting – Use our auto-generated tax and Schedule E reports to share with your accountant and save countless hours during tax season.
Improved Analytics & Reporting – We’ve made our analytics & reporting more powerful and easier to use. New filters, breakdowns by category, the ability to drill down into specific categories, and more.
Seamless Onboarding – Our improved onboarding experience makes it easier and faster for you to get started with Baselane Banking, Rent Collection, and Bookkeeping while also tracking your setup progress.
Streamlined Rent Collection Set Up – We’ve improved our rent collection setup process, from making it easier to navigate to allowing you to review all rent payment invoices during setup.
Rent Payments Timelines – Our rent payment timelines allow you to easily see where your money is and when you should expect to receive rent payments.
And many more product improvements and features…
