With the mobile and desktop apps your property manager can send you maintenance requests for approval. You will be presented with the complete job information including pictures + videos if they are uploaded with the jobs.

Whether you have a question for your property manager and you would like a quick chat or video call or your property manager needs to join you to a group call to seek your approval on major or minor maintenance works, every party to the maintenance issue can be on a group chat or call to ensure maintenance tasks are reviewed collectively where needed to find solutions and make informed decisions.
Once quotes have been obtained and the job is sent for your approval you have the option of approving the work as a whole or using the service provider that you wish.

We look at four key users in our solution, giving them tools to address their pain points in the process.
