Agentplus Propertyplus mobile apps
Agentplus is a property management services provider that provides real estate agents across the country a fully hosted, property management software application, including the Propertyplus app.
Propertyplus gives investment property owners complete visibility over their investment property file, allowing them to see a wide range of real time information for their property, such as tenancy details, rental payments, inspection reports, financial statements including rent history and expenses overview, end of financial year reports, and other documents related to the property. Notifications are also sent for specific events, such as maintenance work and inspections. Property owners can also update their information, such as preferred contact method and bank account details.
Propertyplus can be accessed from the Agentplus website or an iOS or Android mobile device.
Agentplus wanted the Propertyplus app to deliver comprehensive information across both web and Android and iOS mobile platforms. The challenge was to deliver a complex app that works seamlessly across all platforms, while providing an intuitive user experience. Each platform - web, iOS and Android - has different technical requirements and requires knowledge of different programming languages and frameworks.
Our skills in developing both User Interfaces and customised apps with large data sets enabled us to deliver an easy-to-use app across both platforms. We worked closely with the Agentplus team, who supplied all the data to the apps via an API (application programming interface) built in-house by their technology team. Agentplus hosts all its own databases and systems (in Microsoft .NET tech), which run the back-office products it supplies to real estate rental agents. Our technical experts used a blended native mobile app and AngularJS web app approach, where both platforms work smoothly alongside each other. The iOS and Android apps have the most commonly used features implemented natively for the best user experience, but where more complex interfaces were required (such as financial tables and charts), we built a fully featured AngularJS web app.
“Propertyplus makes our life a lot easier because it is a low maintenance app.” Simon Beach, Product Development and Delivery Manager at Agentplus
The information accessed by the Propertyplus app is comprehensive and supplied in in real time. Each property owner has their own portal to access information about their investment properties. They have the choice to access information through the web or their own mobile device. An innovative feature is white labelling, which means the app is easily re-branded with the personalised logos and brand colours of Agentplus’s real estate clients. Each real estate agent feels like they are using their own platform, not a generic one.
