tlyfe App delivers rent ready tenants free to letting agents and lets tenants pre-qualify themselves
Most lettings agents are under increasing pressure, they are short of time short dealing with multiple potential tenants; similarly tenants are under pressure competing with other tenants looking for their next rental home. Solving these pain points, Adam Pigott CEO of Openbrix, and team launched the tlyfe App which is now scaling in popularity following its recent launch, as the App helps both sides of the lettings equation.
For letting agents tlyfe simplifies the tenant selection process by delivering free ‘rent-ready’ tenants who have already undergone thorough pre-qualification, government-backed right to rent checks and ID verification, and fully verified references. For tenants it allows them having used the App and paid a small fee to qualify themselves in readiness to move into a rental.
As Adam Pigott CEO puts it,
‘The benefits to agents can be seen in direct time and cost savings, as tlyfe removes the time and money spent on traditional tenant sourcing and referencing methods. Because tenants pre-qualify and reference themselves providing you with verified and certified documents, so agents can skip unnecessary viewings and focus on closing deals with confidence.
How to unlock a people-centred approach to property with Reapit and Inventorybase
Full transparency Steve Rad and James Taylor, founders of Radweb & Inventorybase are two of my oldest clients, in my other company Proptech-PR ‘A consultancy for Proptech Founders’ and the reason they have such a succesful number of businesses is that they have always had industry oversight, seeing the trends and the way property and technology and the people in the sector fit together. That and nearly two decades of experience in the sector.
The following is some thought leadership from the Inventorybase stable, which highlights the need for strategic partnerships and why always thinking of the user for any service that a property professional needs is core to building a growing and stable business.
‘In the ever-evolving property industry, professionals have always needed to adapt to changing demands. However, more recently, we’ve witnessed the rise of technology and data-driven approaches to property, some of which have become core pillars in our field, making the transition all the more simple.
The era of manually sorting through paperwork and painstakingly entering information is now confined to the past as property professionals can now access and benefit from a whole host of technology solutions that enable them to accelerate processes and enhance their operational efficiency like never before.
However, the benefits of digitisation reach far beyond document management. Utilising digital tools and platforms like Reapit enables the seamless integration of multiple solutions that operate in a frictionless and harmonious way. Connecting all these processes will allow property professionals to swiftly complete day-to-day tasks like maintenance checks, tenant screenings, check ins, and property inspections. This not only saves valuable time and resources but also boosts productivity and facilitates strategic decision-making.
But despite the upsides, we still must be mindful – it is essential that we remain focused on our ultimate goal and the reasons behind our adoption of technology, striking that delicate balance between proptech and personal connections.
