Do You Know Where Your HOA Money is Going?

March 10, 2016

CHARLESTON, South Carolina – March 10, 2016 – Handling associations’ financial resources is the single most important job that a board member and a managing partner have. Who’s controlling your association’s money, and how do you know you can trust them?

Associa Carolinas is a management firm doing what no one else in the industry is doing to protect against fraud and ensure that association dollars are accounted for. Associa is the world’s largest community management company and has created the first and only client shared service center (CSSC) designed with state-of-the-art technology to provide communities with the most convenient, efficient and transparent accounting practices in the business.

The CSSC has revolutionized accounting services in a way that is not only safeguarding association finances, it has also streamlined the way community managers handle accounts.

“Association boards are aware of the horror stories about managers or board members stealing HOA money. What we have in place is something that no other company can provide to ensure the safety of those finances,” says Associa Carolinas President Edward Corless. “We’ve basically opened the books for HOAs. We are earning trust through transparency and doing all of this at a centralized facility so community managers are not burdened with bookkeeping and instead can focus on unsurpassed customer service.”
