Resident, launch of fantastic new features
Having run Alexandre Boyes Block Management for over a decade Resident founder, Kate Boyes, was frustrated with what tools and admin support were available for managing blocks of flats. Kate designed Resident to make managing property simpler, more transparent, and more cost-effective for her team and for clients. Resident is the first platform designed to be accessible and affordable for those who self manage as well as managing agents.
In it’s first year, Resident has won bronze for Best Online Business in the Kent Digital Awards and was a finalist for the Best Services Provider at the News on the Block Property Management Awards. Happy birthday to Resident and here’s to a bright future!
Resident is now releasing Version 2, which builds on the existing accounting, communication and compliance tools adding exciting new features as well as some refinements based on clients feedback. One of these is multi schedule accounting. Some of the existing large property management software suppliers do this already, but what makes Resident’s offering unique is the affordable cost and the integration on the web portal with all the other elements that experience has shown are required to manage blocks of flats effectively.
The features also include easier and quicker communication with leaseholders and anyone else involved in the management process. The work put in to making Resident an integrated communication platform has been very well received by clients. Version 2 incorporates a built-in instant messaging service, a digital message board, and an online voting tool to speed up decision-making. All the information held is block specific, a real time saver during change in ownership and legal enquiries. As all leaseholders have logins too they can access budgets, documentation, and maintenance reports themselves, which frees up valuable admin time and makes the whole management process totally transparent.
