The emerging Proptech platform BestAgent has announced its latest partnership - this one is with InventoryBase, a software supplier which has created a system for the rapid completion of detailed inventories by inventory clerks.
BestAgent, run by property software entrepreneur Charlie Wright, aims to launch fully later this year and provide an ‘open platform’ which would allow smaller agencies to access technology from a range of major industry suppliers at minimal cost.
“The idea of BestAgent is to assist all those running agencies who are not fans of technology but who need the basic tools” according to software entrepreneur Charlie Wright, who is behind the initiative.
Wright says he already has some of the industry’s biggest supplier names on board, willing to work with agency customers using BestAgent so long as key connectivity and rights issues can be agreed.
This revolves around a single open API - tech jargon for Application Programming Interface, which allows a range of different suppliers’ services to be accessible from the one platform.
Wright says those suppliers already signed up to the idea include The ValPal Network - owned by Angels Media, publisher of Letting Agent Today - as well as Yomdel, Kremer Signs, Resi Analytics, Legal4Landlords, Landlords Insurance, BriefYourMarket, ViewMyChain, Feefo, PayProp and the upcoming compliance service called The Depositary.
