Ways to Scale up Your Lease Administration Process
Staying on top of your lease portfolio management should always be a priority. If your lease portfolio is not up-to-date, you will be suddenly looking at an exhausting backlog which will mean delays in dues and payments.
Staying on top of your lease portfolio will certainly be beneficial in the long run and can give you a considerable competitive advantage. But, what if your current lease administration team is already overwhelmed? Is adding a new lease administration resource advisable?
Well, it depends. If you are looking to grow your lease administration function by adding in-house resources you need to be prepared for the following:
Finding the right resources and ensuring they are ready to hit the ground running will take time.
The hiring process will take time. Lease administration is a critical business function and you want to make sure the person you hire is qualified and ready to handle your lease administration process effectively. Even if you do find the right person, there will always be a company/process-specific learning curve
Hiring in-house lease administrators can increase your HR expenses significantly.
Hiring full-time lease portfolio managers or lease administrators can add to your HR expenses significantly. Adding employees means incurring additional costs related to training, healthcare 401(k) and other overhead expenses.
