Mobile App - Bid anytime, anyplace, on the move
Proud to be ahead in terms of technological innovation for housing solutions, Home Connections lead the market by releasing the first Choice Based Lettings mobile app, where applicants can access available properties on the move and never miss another bid cycle. With the CBL app, your customers are truly in the driving seat.
This smartphone app makes it easy to browse and find a new home. Applicants can use the app to view properties on a map, navigate and search by advert number, bedroom size, chosen area, building type, floor level accessibility and more. The intuitive and user-friendly interface means no training overhead and more engagement with your customers. Users get the same feature-rich experience as through Home Connections award-winning CBL portals.
“Working with Home Connections to develop the first Smartphone app for Choice Based Lettings was a really rewarding experience. From initially realising the idea to implementation was a relatively easy process, Home Connections took all the pressure away from us and worked tirelessly to hit deadlines. Haringey wanted to introduce a Smartphone app for a number of reasons; to provide people seeking social housing with the same quality of access to services as those considering accommodation in the private sector, to better target the 50% of the population who use Smartphones with a convenient, mobile access to service with instant updates and to make best use of technology in a rapidly changing world.
We were lucky that Home Connections had the same vision and our partnership was based on a desire to create something that would benefit our users and that we could be proud of. The team were efficient and knowledgeable and kept us advised of all developments at all times. I would have no hesitation in working with them on other projects in the future and would be confident in recommending their services to others.”
