Internship Reference: MANBD04
This companiesvision is to design the world’s most trusted B2B real estate technology platform enabled through the network effect between buildings, users and their data. We are doing this by creating a single page app that will have the simplicity similar to theuse of Instagram, with no more than three clicks to tag a property fixture or fitting and beused to simplify property management.
Worldwide, 1 in 3 trips to manage property are just to look at the issue, not to repair orresolve and this has major sustainability implications around transport as well economicsaround recycling. So we exist to simplify property management for occupiers orhomeowners in collaboration with a marketplace of real estate experts. The insight is,property management challenges are growing due to the increasing complexity ofbuildings and advent of technology within homes. The platform enables property developers/home builders to create a better experience for their purchasers,allows them to organise documentation and connect their approved suppliers to thatbuilding, for its long term management.
This also creates a marketplace opportunity for this data and a connected network of property experts. Additionally, this will also provide any occupier with a platform to organise their home, not only for a new build, though for the secondhand andcommercial space too.
