A new digital property management platform from Apropos by DJ Alexander, which covers almost half of the UK, including Edinburgh, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Birmingham and London, has gone live.
Apropos enables landlords to track and manage their entire rental portfolio by monitoring all activity via an online dashboard that delivers complete visibility of all transactions as they happen.
Tenants can book viewings and provide feedback on the property, submit and track their full rental application online, pay their rent and book their check in date. In addition, they can report and monitor maintenance online during their tenancy.
David Alexander, joint managing director of apropos, commented: “Our day to day priorities remain the safety, security, and welfare of all our staff, landlords and tenants. We must operate in the most responsible and flexible way we can during these extraordinary times. But equally it is important to recognise that the coronavirus outbreak, despite the current lockdown and difficulties it is currently imposing on all of us, will not last forever.
“We felt that our digital platform, which was designed to transform the rental experience, offers an innovative, hassle-free solution for both landlords and tenants. While day to day activities are undoubtedly being severely challenged at the moment, this will change. Everybody needs to be prepared for the end of this crisis and we want to be sure that when coronavirus subsides, we are ready for the next phase of our development.”
Alexander added: “We believe that our platform, which draws on our 40 years of experience in the letting sector, is the future for property management backed up by outstanding service from our apropos agents. We now have 44% of the UK covered by our apropos agents and will be extending our network to cover the largest 100 towns and cities in the country.
“Going live with the apropos platform now is simply our way of saying that we are looking forward to the time beyond the coronavirus outbreak and are prepared for the time when life and business return to normal.”
