The niche agency Singer Veille has set up its own PropTech consultancy and application development service for the property industry.
Singer Veille has already made a name for itself in PropTech this year, marketing a property in London’s Mayfair for £23m via a system allowing interested parties to submit offers using Blockchain.
It is also in a six month pilot project with Rightmove trialling a service allowing buyers of commercial properties to submit offers online and digitally exchange contracts. They will be able to submit offer via private treaty, best offers or during a real-time online auction.
Now the agency, which deals mostly in commercial property, is launching a PropTech service combining its own personnel and those from automated buying platform Clicktopurchase and software company Lucied Ocean.
Neil Singer - head of both Singer Veille and Clicktopurchase - says: “As the property sector increasingly embraces technology, there is a clear knowledge gap. We see poor advice being offered by those outside of our industry and a common misunderstanding by non-property technicians of the property business.
“As a unique team with many years’ experience in both property and technology, and most importantly proven, we are offering a service where our colleagues in the sector can take comfort in being able to speak with people who talk their language and understand their businesses.”
And Jonathan Crossland of Lucid Ocean adds:“It is clear, business and technical teams need guidance. With the ever increasing complexity and overwhelming myriad of marketing buzz around, it's no wonder that most technology driven projects fail or costs run out of control. It's important to have people who have the right experience to facilitate your projects. You wouldn't build your house without an experienced Architect. Experience is everything."
