Navana Property Group’s estate management software has been selected for the first phase of Berkeley Homes’ mixed-use Woodberry Down estate.
The 860-home estate will use two of Navana’s proprietary tools used to manage mixed-use schemes.
The first is NAVTech, which will be used by leaseholders for real-time service charge budget tracking, instant messaging and updates on accounting and reserve funds.
The second is an app called ANATech which allows occupiers to access a newsfeed, community updates, and events and food & drink guides.
Data and resident feedback collected on the app will be used to inform how the estate is managed and regeneration of the surrounding area as it progresses.
“The traditional model deployed by most agents cannot, and will not, deliver the holistic approach required by the large and complex mixed-use developments of the future,” said Harry Fenner, chief executive of Navana Property Group.
“This commitment from Berkeley Homes, a company that has always led the industry, reinforces our view that the property sector is ready for a different type of people-focused and technology-led manager,” Fenner continued.
