07 February 2019 3570 Views
To a sales-focused agency, having a lettings department can sometimes feel like losing control of the business.
Recent cases of property management fraud such as this, this and this show how hard it can be to keep track of client money in a lettings environment. In some cases, fraud can go on for years without being detected, as most agencies rely on a complex mixture of online banking, some sort of IT system or an Excel spreadsheet – giving ample opportunity to manipulate the figures.
While only a very small percentage of accounting mistakes are fraudulent, having figures that don’t add up can be a real challenge. This is where trusted PropTech can help.

This eliminates the need for a diverse blend of systems and duplicated data, reducing human error and the temptation to do wrong.
The system is backed up with bank-level security and user restrictions that put you in control by letting you limit what people can and can’t do on the platform – unlike traditional banking mandates.
