Published by Ben on 23rd October, 2017
When it comes to acting efficiently, there is a great deal to be said for using the latest technology. This is as true for the letting industry as any other industry, and you may be surprised at the number of ways that the latest technology can help professionals in the letting sector. Everyone has seen the impact that the internet has had on the lettings market with respect to property portals but at Taylor Robinson, we are pleased to say that we have embraced the very latest in technology and we believe this allows us to provide you with a better service.
No matter what technology is being used, or what industry it is being used in, there should be some tangible benefit of using technology. You’ll often find that this new working methods makes certain tasks easier or quicker or perhaps it ensures that a consistent level of work is undertaken.
One of the biggest issues in the letting sector is communication between the tenant and landlord/property management service provider and how this impacts on the maintenance of the property. There is a need to have a good level of communication between these parties and it should be as simple and straight forward as possible.
Communication is vital in the letting sector
A great example of how modern technology can be used to aid communication and help maintain property is used by Taylor Robinson and can be seen in our Home Issue repair reporting system. This is a very easy to use interface that provides a range of options, identified by icons, which means that there is no need for the tenant to know the proper name or issue, they can click on the icon that represents where the problem lies.
This saves time and it also ensures that tenants don’t have to worry about a language barrier or a lack of knowledge to prevent them from reporting an issue. The system is set up to take the tenant or reporter from start to end of the reporting process. This includes the ability to add notes or images, which means that the professional will be able to react quickly and in a more efficient manner.
The uniformity of this approach ensures that tenants can act quickly and decisively while the professional is better informed and will receive the news quicker.
Another issue that concerns many people in the letting sector relates to administrative duties. The paperwork involved with a let can be a daunting prospect and most tenants and landlords are keen to be assisted in this matter. At Taylor Robinson, we work with the Goodlord system, which ensures that our paperwork is in order and all of the processes involved with a tenant moving in have been followed. Technology isn’t just about making jobs quicker, it is about making the process more robust, offering security and safety for all parties.
There is a need for security in the letting sector
This style of system can provide security, it allows money to be transferred between parties securely and it even allows for digital signatures to be used, speeding up the process without compromising on safety.
There are so many aspects to work in the letting industry that it isn’t possible to cut corners without compromising on service in some others. However, through the use of technology, it is possible to undertake work faster and more reliably without compromising on quality or standards. This ensures that everyone in the letting sector benefits and at Taylor Robinson, we believe that technology allows us to provide our clients and partners with the highest standard of support and guidance at all times.
