Dootrix has partnered with housing app developer Optus Homes for Azure cloud architectural consultancy and app development services.
Optus Homes’ app, currently in development and previewed at Housing Technology 2020 this month, allows social and private tenants to manage their tenancy accounts with ease. By integrating with housing providers’ existing business applications, the app will also generate significant internal operational efficiencies and savings.
Gerry Kelly, CEO, Optus Homes, said, “As the rental market continues to change, customer service will be a key area of judgement. For housing providers who understand the need for a genuine ‘mobile-first’ approach but can’t commit the time and resources to build one from scratch, Optus Homes is here to disrupt the service balance by allowing you to put the tenant at the centre of your offering.
“We’re offering zero development costs for a powerful mobile app solution in your brand, built so that it easily integrates with your existing systems and available on a monthly PaaS contract.”
Based on the Azure cloud platform, Optus Homes’ app has the latest features and functionality to deliver the best experience to tenants; voice-to-text, real-time language translation and a suite of two-way community messaging features are on the roadmap for 2020.
Steve Leonard, app development specialist, Microsoft, said, “This is exactly the type of innovation that the latest developments in Azure can provide. I’m excited to see how the Optus Homes ecosystem evolves in 2020.”
