RUME Property Management


Rume Property Management needed a Document management system that would allow for cloud-to-cloud migration of form submission data, access requests, and other documents required to run a smooth real estate company. Their existing system was insecure, and granting access to properties/onboarding new tenants and employees was difficult due to lack of document governance and permissions. There additionally was no clear path to sharing data with external partners. HingePoint created a custom SharePoint document management system that enabled Rume Property to manage security and permissions easily, and made department and individual property site folders easily accessible and streamlined. HingePoint also created custom power automate flows to automate business processes.

The Challenge

  • Subsites being used in tenant causing issues with managing security.
  • Granting access and onboarding difficult due to lack of security governance.
  • No clear way to share data with external partners.
  • Only show navigation elements to users who have access.
