London-based award-winning flexible living solutions provider – Lavanda – launches its Co-living PMS, the sectors first dedicated property management software (PMS). The software has been designed to solve property management for Co-living operators.

The Co-living PMS enables operators to put residents at the heart of their strategy with a seamless lead-to-lease journey. The platform focuses on delivering a superior resident experience – including offering renters more flexible leasing options, whilst reducing management costs and optimising the performance of co-living assets with intelligent automation. The Lavanda resident app also allows residents to book amenities, report issues and build connections within their co-living communities.

The Co-living PMS solution has already been adopted by Neybor, a co-living start-up currently operating in Brussels – which is led by architects and designers. 

“After significant work within the co-living sector, it’s become very clear that this rapidly emerging asset class was missing a dedicated property management solution. Having raised capital earlier in 2022, we have been able to invest in the people and resources needed to develop a dedicated solution for co-living properties, enabling us to better serve our growing customer base with the product features they need to build world class communities that attract and retain renters.”

Recently, Lavanda appointed two new executives to their senior leadership team. Both were former executives at RealPage, the global leader in property management technology and data analytics. Benjamin McGee joined Lavanda as VP Global Sales, and Laura Woollard as VP Global Marketing.

“Prior to joining Lavanda I’d been tracking the emerging flexible living sector for a while and was hugely excited by the potential in this space. When the opportunity arose to join a leading innovator like Lavanda, leverage my deep industry experience and personally contribute to the company’s exciting growth plans, I found it very hard to say no.”

Laura Woollard, VP of Global Marketing

Lavanda enables the world’s largest, most innovative residential real estate institutions to reimagine their customer experience and optimise business performance with fully flexible renting. Customers include Greystar, JLL and Blackstone, amongst many others.
