The idea to create a managed service involving bespoke property management software and a robust supplier network was borne out of company owner Jamie Robertson’s experience of working in the UK’s property sector with management surveyors.
A very important but laborious part of the typical management surveyor’s role was to deal with tenant requests for actions on small jobs affecting their occupation such as lighting failures, blocked toilets and the like.
Often they would know a building company or a glazier who may help, some of these were very good however few paid any real attention to safety management putting the owner of the property at risk. As for the rest, these were being selected from local directories with no knowledge at all of the tradesmen experience, ability or honesty. Management surveyors, and staff working with them, also appeared to spend a lot of time working their way through a pile of invoices to be stamped and checked.
So between this and dealing with tenant requests for reactive maintenance it became clear that there was the opportunity to bring this together with the aid of a bespoke website. A system that dealt with online invoice approvals and consolidated invoicing coupled with a job procurement system that tied in client, helpdesk and supplier could make the average day of a management surveyor using this method more productive.
The result of this would enable both client and tenant to benefit from the economies of scale possible, improved service levels and the reduction of risk by using carefully vetted, pre-qualified and suitably insured suppliers.
And so from this background Propertyserve was set up in April 2004 to assist property owners and management surveyors in the control of their property portfolios.
