ProAPOD Real Estate Investment Software is an application for Excel that we developed to make it easy for agents, investors, and other real estate professionals to create rental property cash flow, rates of return, and profitability analysis presentations. As you might know, I developed this software in 2000 and to date have had nothing but positive feedback from customers…with one exception. Many customers find that emailing a report is not quite as easy as it is to create one. But there’s an explanation.
ProAPOD real estate software does not provide the program that is required to convert a text document (which ProAPOD reports essentially are) into the PDF document required to email the document. We can only recommend a free third-party PDF software program that does the trick (and it is free), but we have no control over that program whatsoever, and unfortunately it can be cumbersome. That’s not a dig at the free solution though, because I have purchased the expensive Adobe Acrobat program and found that it is just as cumbersome; so stick with the free versions.
My point is not to hold the issues connected with emailing documents against ProAPOD. I am constantly on the look out for a PDF software program that is easier, and I will recommend it if I find one, but until then I guess we will all have to live with the software available. Of course if you can recommend one, I’m all ears. Because it does bother me that you might not give ProAPOD an A+ rating based solely upon the less-than-desirable PDF solutions that other third-party software developers have made available.
