One of the teams that competed in the hackathon at Property Week’s RESI conference last year has launched a new property management app.
The app, which was created by Kelly and Chris Wilson and is called Harmony Landlord Solutions, was demonstrated last week at the central London offices of Westbourne Capital Partners, which sponsored the RESI hackathon last year alongside Meyer Bergman.
The new app has been designed to help private rented sector and build-to-rent landlords operate their properties more efficiently and is being offered to landlords as a ‘white label’ product, meaning that they can customise it with their own branding if they wish.
It has messaging functions to help landlords communicate with tenants easily and securely about issues such as repairs and maintenance. Tenants can use the app to sign tenancy agreements, pay their rent and carry out various other tasks.
Tenants in shared properties can also use the app to communicate with each other without the need to share personal details. Meanwhile, landlords have access to a dashboard that comprises tenant requests and financial information.
The app also offers the option to market third-party services such as cleaners to tenants in exchange for a commission.
Following the success of last year’s inaugural RESI hackathon, a second hackathon will take place at this RESI Convention event on 12-14 September.
