Spike Global continues to grow its presence in the Northern Build to Rent sector with its latest partnership with property developer and professional landlord, Livingway. Spike Global has worked with Livingway to create a white labelled version of its tenant engagement portal – Spike Living – that is now available to residents across Livingway’s Build to Rent developments in Liverpool, Leeds, Stockport, Manchester, Bolton and Aberdeen.
“Having explored many of the other tenant apps and communication tools on the market, we felt that there was nothing that provided the functionality and ease that Spike Living could. Having the ability to completely white label the portal was an important factor for us, ensuring that it ties into our brand and values. We are also able to easily integrate other platforms that we are using which means that we have one app as opposed to two or three!”Samantha Hay, CEO, Livingway
Residents can access the portal via their smartphone to stay connected to their local area, access discounts on local businesses, and to create online clubs and forums. The portal also allows Livingway to simplify and streamline day-to-day management of its buildings, helping residents stay better connected and allowing staff to manage enquiries and maintenance requests more efficiently.
“The Build to Rent sector has been one of the industry’s fastest growing sectors in recent years, and where city centre living has always commanded a premium, northern cities with their booming enterprise are a compelling investment opportunity. Livingway’s ethos is that renting should be a lifestyle choice, rather than a subpar alternative to home ownership, and Spike Global’s award-winning Spike Living portal is bringing the tenant experience into the 21st century. Our solutions are designed to empower tenants to build connections with their neighbours, communicate with the management team and form a closeknit community, all from their fingertips.”Jeremy Heath-Smith, CEO, Spike Global
Spike Living has already been rolled out across over 200 developments in the UK, as the company continues to expand its foothold throughout the North of England.
