MyHOA Web-Portals

Web portals are web-based gateways that grant authenticated, and authorized persons access to a organization’s central data repositories, for the sake of communication, management, collaboration, and feasible data sharing. There are several types of web portals that are often associated with different industries, but web portals can generally be broken down into three major types:

  • Business to Business Portals (typically an Extranet)

  • Business to Customer Portals (typically Client Portals)

  • Internal Business Portals (Intranets)

  • Directory Portals (typically Client Portals)

  • Community Portals (typically Social Portals)

  • Personal Portals (typically Social Portals)

MyHOA Web Portals are powered by YouPortalTM and provided by PeachWiz, Inc.

A MyHOA web portal is an interactive gateway to what your community has to offer on the Internet. It is a single point of access designed to provide easy, fast access to applications, content, search, email, information, chat, media, and purchases.

MyHOA Web-Portals are delivered as SaaS

Software as a Service (or SaaS) is a way of delivering applications over the Internet as-a-service-subscription and made available as a website or a webapp.

Instead of installing and maintaining software, you simply access it via the Internet, freeing yourself from complex software development, upgrades, hardware maintenance, costs and management. Software as a service is a software licensing and delivery model in which software is licensed on a subscription basis and is centrally hosted. SaaS is also known as "on-demand software" and Web-based/Web-hosted software.

A MyHOA Web-Portal is a SaaS environment for providing Diverse Web Applications and Content Sources from a single user interface and presents users with the most relevant information for their context. A Web-Portal Platform is also described as a Social Portal System because of its user engagement capabilities when social modules are applied.

In a SaaS environment upgrades are automatic, and over time, simple web portals can evolve into portal systems that support complex digital customer experience initiatives.

  • In today's connected world, web-portals are used by Communities as part of their communications strategy in order to meet information and communication demands as opposed to simply having a static website online.

Web-Portal can be provided as a website, wich means it a Web-Portal website cannot be installed on a device.

There are four kinds of Web-Portal Websites:

  • Web-Portal Static Website: Website consists of static HTML web pages only not dynamic.

  • Web-Portal CMS: Content Management System enablues admins to modify website pages and media.

  • Web-Portal Community Website: Where user profiles, management with user roles are applied to website.

Picking the sort of web-portal website configuration relies upon the kind of business and necessity of the enterprise. MyHOA offers every one of these kind of webortal sites and can evolve into a more complex Web-Portal site.

Web-Portal WebApps have the same characteristics described in SaaS and Website tabs, but unlike a Web-Portal Website, a Web-Portal WebApp can be installed on any device, wich means the user is always logged in, giving you close access to users via device notifications, and tools, like camera, phone, etc. no matter where they are with the device, but unlike native apps, it is not stored on the device locally on the device it is stored and hosted on remote servers.

A web application (WebApp) is application software that runs in a web browser, unlike software programs that run locally and natively on the operating system of the device. Web applications are delivered on the World Wide Web to users with an active network connection.

Web Apps can do more than just rendering content on the screen or connecting to web services. They can deal with files from the file system, they can interact with the system's clipboard, they can access hardware that is connected to the device, and much more.

When a Web-Portal WebApp is installed on a mobile device it can use the device features.

  • Recieve real-time Notifications
  • Send & Recieve SMS Messages
  • Can use GPS
  • Can upload files from a phone/tablet
  • Can use the device’s gyroscope
  • Can use the device’s accelerometer
  • Can use swipe navigation
  • Can use the device’s camera
  • Can use the device’s compass
  • Can access the device's list of contacts
  • Other features may be accessible depending on the device
Two types of WebApps
  • Static web applications. Consists of static webpages, unsplash. This is the most basic type of web application and has little content or room for movement. Utilized for basic online presence and to provide static information.

  • Dynamic web applications. This style web app is more technically complex in comparison with the aforementioned static application because it include application modules that are dynamic in nature and developed for user interaction.

Web-Portal web applications have very high user experience. The web applications are available round-the-clock from anywhere in the world, and usable from any device for any screen size. Security for end users data, is flexible, and scalable to meet high demand. Additionally, it is rich user experiences built on the client. If you want users to have instantaneous access to your Web-Portal application modules and notifications, a Web-Portal WebApp is the way to go.

Native hybrid apps are installed through an application store (such as Google Play or Apple's App Store). They are developed specifically for one platform, and like webapps they can take full advantage of all the device features — they can use the camera, the GPS, the accelerometer, the compass, the list of contacts, and so on.

This is an emerging web development trend that opens up opportunities for smart marketing and information strategies. You 'll never be left behind when trying new techniques or improving old ones anymore because these resources make everything seem like one big learning experience - even if sometimes things go wrong unexpectedly.

Systems available on MyhOA web-portals allow users to customize the content based on their, roles, preferences and needs. This further helps in managing information in the most convenient way.

Web-portals offer effective communication channels, allowing communities to reach out to their residents and vendors. This allows communities to grow their residents/vendor base and create a positive image of their community in the online world.

Arguably one of the best features to come out of web-portal systems is that it allows communities to provide their board, managers, and/or residents with a user-friendly interface that enables access from any location and on any device. This makes it easier for people to make changes or update content according to their requirements, resulting in improved information dissemination.

All the documents you need to manage your information, project or sales are right at hand. You can easily access them in one place, so there's no more scanning through emails or spending time looking for what was agreed upon between yourself and fellow staff or residents.

With web-portals, you can offer residents an extra way to contact and communicate within your community. When they receive timely information about the status of their requests, queries, or other related matters this shows that they are being responded to, which helps in retaining more residnets.

It 's all about a great user experience. They allow for a strong organic link structure by centralizing important pages into one point. This means that the users only need to remember one URL, username, and password for all community content.

We all know how important it is to provide our boards and residents with the best information possible. You can personalize specific pieces of information that may be useful to your board, residents, and/or managers. Web portals are an effective way to interact with residents, managers, boards and vendors. They allow opportunities for easy communication that can lead to more positive discourse.

It is an excellent way to keep tabs on your community's overall performance. You can see where you need improvement or opportunities for growth in a single window, without having any trouble with data analysis because it all goes straight into the system!

With web-portals, residents and boards are able to resolve their own inqueries, and this saves them time. For the managers, board members, and service providers who do not want to spend endless hours on the phone or residents or have labor costs spent for handling issues that should be resolved by an application - it 's an easy win!

With good content management, there's a drastically reduced chance that incorrect content will show up on your web-portal. Consolidating community information ensures that only the latest versions of information, documents, and media with correct information, branding and signatories can be shared.


MyHOA Web-Portal is a SaaS (Software as a Service) web-based platform that supports digital customer experience initiatives by providing multiple application modules and collects information from different sources into a single domain and presents users with the most relevant information and applications for their context based on their role within the web-portal.

No, MyHOA Web-Portals cannot be natively installed on a device, MyHOA Web-Portals are provided as a SaaS product (Software as a Service), and are delivered over the web as a website, Web App, or Native Hybrid App.

Software as a service is a software licensing and delivery model in which software is licensed on a subscription basis and is centrally hosted. SaaS is also known as "on-demand software" and Web-based/Web-hosted software. Software as a service (or SaaS) is a way of delivering applications over the Internet—as a service. Instead of installing and maintaining software, you simply access it via the Internet, freeing yourself from complex software and hardware management. SaaS applications are sometimes called Web-based software, on-demand software, or hosted software. Whatever the name, SaaS applications run on a SaaS provider’s servers. The provider manages access to the application, including security, availability, and performance.

The three distinguishing strengths of MyHOA Web-Portals — integration, consistency and personalization — are essential components of an increasingly important part of business today: digital customer experience.

  • Integration capabilities allow organizations to unite systems, application modules and customer data on the back end.
  • An emphasis on consistency across digital touchpoints gives these united systems a shared look and feel on the front end.
  • Personalization through a combination of biographical data (who they are) and behavioral data (what they did on the site) gives enterprises the ability to contextualize experiences, usually facilitated by user roles and login process.

The MyHOA Web-Portals can play an important role in user engagement, especially when they have been extended with application modules to meet your business application needs and new features such as content management systems, and marketing automation are deployed. In order to realize the competitive advantages of their online presence, companies are rethinking the value of these three strengths in today’s multi-touchpoint context of digital customer experience.

A CX (customer experience) strategy comprises the plans you put in place to provide positive experiences at each customer touchpoint along the customer journey and the purposeful ways to measure those experiences both online and off.

Web site. A website is a collection of linked web pages (plus their associated resources) that share a unique domain name. Each web page of a given website provides explicit links—most of the time in the form of clickable portions of text—that allow the user to move from one page of the website to another.

A Web App (web application) is application software that runs in a web browser, unlike software programs that run locally and natively on the operating system of the device. Web applications are delivered on the World Wide Web to users with an active network connection.

Native apps are what comes to most of our minds when we think of mobile apps and are downloaded from the App Store or Google Play. What distinguishes native apps from mobile web apps and native hybrid apps is that they are developed for specific devices. For instance, Android apps are written in Java and iPhone apps are written in Objective-C.

A native hybrid app combines elements of both native apps and web applications. Hybrid apps can be distributed through the app stores just like a native app, and they can incorporate operating system features. Like a web app, hybrid apps can also use cross-compatible web technologies and host SaaS products. In simple terms a hybrid app puts Web-Portals in Apple and Google app stores.

In most cases it depends on your budget. Because of the MyHOA Web-Portal modular approach you can start with a simple website Web-Portal, and slowly grow into applications that meet your business needs as your budget increases. Upgrade to a Web App and enable users to install it from the web, then add hybrid Apple App Store and Google Play stores for app marketing capabilities and added native features.

The quick answer is: Yes, we think Web-Portals and Web Apps are the future. In the coming years, billions of devices will be connected to the Internet, and they'll access and share information through the Web. Web Apps and Native Hybrid could and should eventually replace most native apps. As Internet technology and access speeds evolves, so does the way we use and access information. Software and Applications will ba made available as online services (SaaS) as opposed to installing instances of the software on devices occupying valuable storage space and having to wait for upgrades and bug fixes, upgrades and bug fixes will be instaneously upgraded and debugged in real-time. With the advent of web-portals and SaaS, businesses can create custom-made applications that make accessing data quicker and easier than ever before providing users with better experiences within their organizations..
