Most roommate conflict stems from poor communication. EasyRoomIn seeks to cut down on misunderstandings and poor communication with bill and chore tracking, ownership lists, contact managements and communication tools.
EasyRoomIn can easily server as a communication hub for your entire household. You and your roommates sign up for a free account and your residence becomes a hub for a micro social network within EasyRoomIn. There you can share bills, assign chores, put due dates and notices on a shared calendar, share messages on a message board and even catalogue your possessions. EasyRoomIn has a contact manager to handle emergency contacts and contact information important to the whole household. It’s a genius solution for roommates, especially roommates in a multi-person household like many university students.
EasyRoomIn not only brings all these features together but is easy to use. It’s extremely easy to make a new bill, split up the percentage each person is paying and make sure everyone gets email reminders when their portion is due. Cataloguing possessions is simple too. When it’s time to move out the “Stuff” list will help when people can’t recall who brought the silverware or other household goods.
EasyRoomIn is a free service and requires a basic email registration for account setup. Have a favourite tool for helping to manage roommate relations and communication? Let’s hear about it in the comments.
