PropTech Safety and Eco-Compliance platform set for expansion

A fast-expanding PropTech business has opened a new office in London to serve a growing client base in the capital and across south-east England.

Symple, which was launched in May 2021, is an online platform for letting agents and other property professionals.

It manages property certificates for single and multiple sites, including those for gas safety, electrical installation condition reports and residential EPCs.


The cloud-based platform is a one-stop shop which manages bookings for inspections and arranges for accredited and strictly vetted service providers – gas safety engineers, electricians and energy assessors – to carry them out.

Symple, which has its headquarters in Greater Manchester, began with just three staff and now has a team of 16.

Its ambitious growth plans include expanding its current portfolio of 3,000 properties to 10,000 by the end of 2022, as well as adding a raft of new services.

Symple has now opened an office in Hendon, north London and founder and chief executive Simon Dresdner says: “Our new office provides a strong platform from which to further accelerate growth in line with our business plan. Our client base in and around the capital is increasing in size, as is our pool of service providers who carry out the inspections. As we also expand our range of services, it is important to have a presence there.”

Symple claims to manage the entire renewal process for certifications, including sending reminders and arranging inspections with key holders and service providers. 

Service providers have no need to raise invoices, as they are paid automatically. They are notified via email or text about available jobs in their locality and they can set the distance they are prepared to travel for each inspection.


Dresdner adds: “Landlords, agents and homeowners who were convinced their systems worked perfectly have tried us, and have subsequently transferred entire portfolios to Symple. The platform eliminates the headache of getting their certificates completed on time.”

Symple is part of Kingsbury Holdings, the parent company of several service providers in the property and facilities management sectors including Merco Facilities Services, a commercial cleaning business, and FCS Management Services, a business rates management company.
