- Ample amounts of memory
Depending on what area of estate management they are working in, some managers will require a mass amount of memory to store important details about numerous properties under their management. In the modern day, computers are packed with unbelievable amounts of memory and extra memory is considerably cheaper than it used to be. The amount of information that be contained in a computer would simply be unmanageable on paper.
- Advanced communication
Thanks to computers and the Internet, our ability to communicate has been greatly improved. Estate managers now have a variety of ways to communicate with clients and co-workers through email, social networking and even video conferencing. This makes their job much easier; allowing them to communicate with people associated with their properties regardless of location.
- Advanced functioning
Computers are very powerful things and offer so many pieces of software to an estate manager. Using their computer, estate managers could calculate costs, write letters, create presentations and diagrams all from their computer. Spreadsheet software allows them to log and calculate the finances on the estates that they are managing. Presentational software helps them to create efficient and engaging presentations for when they may be looking to negotiate with new clients.
Just like with many professions in the modern age, computers give so many more dimensions to an estate manager.
The computer is important to estate management for several reasons such as checking backgrounds, finding documents, and much more.
- Estate Management
Estate management can come about in a couple of ways. The executor of a will may be managing the estate for the people left behind after a family member's death. The executor of the estate may manage it for a short time or until the family reaches a certain age, such as children being left behind that have yet to reach maturity. An estate may be managed while a person is still alive, but they want their staff to handle the estate rather than being a part of the day to day running. In most cases it is the executor of the will situation rather than the management of an estate by staff. It can also be that an estate is managed by a family member or friend while a person is traveling extensively or working overseas.
