Innago vs. TenantCloud

Here’s a breakdown of the most important features to help you decide which platform is right for you.


With Innago, you can enter information, upload photos and videos, and publish to listing sites with just a few clicks. Plus, the company provides a dedicated listing URL so you can manage all your listings from one place. And if you need to update your listing, the changes will automatically be implemented on all selected listing sites. 

TenantCloud partners with online platforms like, Rentler, and Zillow Group to give your listings increased exposure. You can also create a property-specific website for free to gather inquiries from prospective tenants.

Tenant screening

Innago reports include tenant judgments, unlawful detainers, failure to pay rent, writs, and warrants of eviction. Plus, the custom application builder allows landlords to build a tenant application from scratch.

TenantCloud has teamed up with TransUnion to offer 3 tenant screening packages. These include a background and credit check, National Evictions Records search, and identity validation for applicants.  


Innago’s lease templates are custom-made for landlords, making it easy to get the proper documentation with the correct information. The company’s digital signature partner, HelloSign, helps to ensure both convenience and security. You can sign and store as many leases and other documents as you like and easily upload and share them with tenants.

TenantCloud allows landlords to upload their own lease agreement or create a lease online. The software provides rental agreement templates and electronic signature capability. A landlord may use the system to define the rent amount, security deposit, and other expenses before collecting payment from the tenant online after the lease has been signed. 

Online rent collection

Innago allows tenants to pay rent online using any preferred payment method, including a checking or savings account or a debit/credit card. Landlords can manually enter payments received from cash, check, or other methods. Funds are sent to a landlord’s bank account in one business day, free of charge.  

TenantCloud’s AutoPay is a great way for tenants to make their monthly rent payments. ACH direct deposit or debit and credit card payments are all accepted, and landlords may apply one-time or automatic late fees if needed. Partial payments are also allowed, and funds can be transferred straight to the landlord’s bank account if desired.  

Financial reporting

You can use Innago to enter information about payments made, including the payee, the amount paid, the category the payment falls into, and which account to put it in. Innago also provides reports on the performance of your investments, containing data on items such as bank deposits, rent roll, and other key information. 

QuickBooks Online integrates with TenantCloud to keep your income and expenses up to date. The financial documents include a summary of deposits, general revenue, property expenses, amortization and depreciation tracking, and a profit and loss statement.

Tax management

As an Innago user, you can export all of your financial records into Excel or other financial programs. The software also integrates with QuickBooks web accounts. This allows you to record rental payments, custom invoices, and expenses directly into your QuickBooks account, which can then be used to prepare a Schedule E.

TenantCloud’s Tax Preparation Report and 1099 Tax Form are used to compute all property income and expenses, including management fees and depreciation expense, in order to produce IRS Schedule E. Excel, CSV, QuickBooks, PDF, and Numbers file types are available for data downloads.
