LSL plc, a key provider in the mortgage, property and insurance sector, aims, going forward, to focus more on the provision of its financial services. It has therefore decided to franchise its estate agency network which includes well-known high street names including Reeds Rains and Your Move. The majority of the branches are now operating as franchises and the process should complete within the next few weeks.
Propoly is delighted to announce that it has already signed contracts with well over 50% of the 300+ newly created franchised branches. It is ready to welcome more. The tenancy progression platform is a major asset in the lettings business, speeding the entire lettings process, ensuring easy compliance and helping agents earn commission on utility deals and tenant and landlord insurance.
Sim Sekhon, Propoly MD, believes that the platform is key to success in lettings, and has found the new franchise owners keen to embrace all its advantages. He says, ‘These agents clearly understand the importance of delivering excellent service, but they also know that in today’s climate, they can’t fall back on throwing more and more man hours at the job. Propoly is the answer and already we’re getting great feedback on how it’s benefiting their agencies.’
Jon Rudd of National Home Move, which now operates 66 branches of YourMove and Reeds Rains, spoke highly of Propoly’s contribution to their lettings operation and emphasised its pivotal role in their tenancy progression success. He stated, ‘Propoly is an essential part of our lettings operation and has been key to our success in tenancy progression. The platform’s compliance aspects, user permissions, multiple integrations, ease of use, and overall efficiency have been fantastic for our business. We are very happy with the service that Propoly has provided us, and we would highly recommend it to other letting agents’.
Rudd further commended Propoly’s development and support team, highlighting their availability and ongoing collaboration in optimising workflows to meet their specific requirements. He shared that they are in the process of adding several hundred more users and thousands of managed units to the platform.
We asked Sekhon if taking on so many new users so quickly had been an issue for the Propoly team, which has a reputation for high-quality friendly support. He told us that the team have relished the opportunity and is keen to help more users discover the software’s benefits. ‘It’s a great solution for tenancy progression,’ he said. ‘We’re thrilled to see so many new clients using it and welcome any new enquiries.’
