Iliad Homes, a subsidiary of Liverpool-based property developer Iliad, has developed a state-of-the-art smartphone app in conjunction with PropTech company Spike Global exclusively for residents of their forthcoming build-to-rent residential development, The Eight.
The app allows residents in the 120 apartment complex to communicate directly with the management team, it includes neighbourhood watch style information bulletin, details on community and social events organised by Iliad Homesteams or in the wider local area, and easy-to-use reporting and support services.
Billed as the future in build-to-rent residential developments, The Eight's connectivity app will provide its users with a forum to report defects or maintenance, have access to amenities and stay up-to-date with exclusive residents promotions.
Iliad says it adds extra value to the development and will help to 'build a thriving community and allow a seamless relationship between residents and building managers'.
It has been developed in collaboration with PropTech company Spike Global, which specialises in creating platforms that connect communities and improve efficiencies across real-estate.
The Eight is a contemporary new residential complex which is due to open in July. The development has so far seen incredible uptake with a third of the building pre-let just six weeks after its launch.
The Eight is located between the Ropewalks district and the city's Baltic Triangle. The development comprises one, two and three-bedroom apartments with private balconies
James Chan, General Manager at Iliad Homes, said:
"We are all tremendously excited to launch the smartphone app which will be pioneering for a residential development in Liverpool.
"We believe that it adds extra value to the development and will help build a thriving community and allow a seamless relationship between residents and building managers.
"The introduction of this technology to the day-to-day management of The Eight will significantly improve efficiency and increase the services we are able to offer to our residents, creating a much more enjoyable living experience."
Jeremy Heath-Smith, CEO of Spike Living adds
“We’re delighted to have Iliad Homes on-board as a customer. Connectivity has never been more important and we look forward to seeing The Eights’ community go from strength to strength.”
