A new online property management platform has been launched by Herddle.
The new service, which combines proprietary technology and traditional property management service, allows landlords to test, track and view hypothetical scenarios to showcase their full-service portfolio management offer.
The platform, which is currently used by Herddle’s in-house property management team, is designed to assist landlords, agents, tenants and contractors in how they work together and communicate more efficiently and cost effectively, as an update to the archaic standards of the traditional service.
The trial simulates how it works, to show how the services combine to hopefully improve quality and a depth of financial reporting in real time.
Corey Cummins, CEO of Herddle, said: “The demo platform mirrors the technology that underpins the Herddle service. You can interact with a real person in our property management teams and for example, see tenant payments made, watch as the client account automates the onward payment to landlords net of fees and costs, upload new properties, complete referencing and sign rental agreements and renewals, as well as set up dummy maintenance jobs and see how they get processed and paid through the platform.
“The landlord’s view also demos the power of the financial reporting tools from tax certificates to revenues per available unit. It should be a pleasant surprise for any landlords with one or more properties, whether private individual, developer or investment institution.”
The platform when combined with Herddle’s management team aims to give landlords a similar experience for their property portfolios that investors and bank account holders have come to expect from online services.
James fforde, chairman and co-founder of Herddle, commented: “The feedback we’ve had on the Herddle platform from landlords has been extraordinarily positive during lockdown.
“We felt there had to be a way for others to see how easy it is to use, and watch how effectively everyone can communicate with each other, and see transparently where they are.
“You don’t have to be an IT genius to get it, and when something is this different, you do have to see it to believe it. Just being able to see your client account in real time makes a huge difference, especially if there is another lockdown coming.”
