A new PropTech tool called Covid Profile tells lettings agents if tenants are self-isolating or in quarantine because of Coronavirus.
The cloud-based software - developed by property management company Arthur - features options for tenants to flag if they are self-isolating, have symptoms, been in contact with someone testing positive in the last 14 days, as well as anyone in the household considered at risk.
In addition the tool allows other communications between tenant and agent or landlord, and also claims to speed up on-boarding of new tenants with one-click vacancy postings via Zoopla, Facebook Marketplace and Rightmove.
Arthur also helps employees of letting agencies to keep track of tasks and checklists with its embedded pre-existing automation module. This means if any employee is on sick leave or required to isolate, the team can stay on top of the administration on their behalf.
“Following the outbreak of Covid-19, the government has called for improved communication between landlords and tenants so they can work together to find solutions to slow down the number of cases” explains Arthur’s co-founder, David Cummin.
“Covid Profile is a powerful tool for letting agents to guarantee the safety of tenants and contractors and we are pleased to see so many letting agents prioritising the health of their customers, ensuring this software is accessible to all” he adds.
