Optus Homes has announced that PayPoint has taken a stake in the company via a £750,000 investment.
Unlike traditional tenant web portals, Optus Homes’ native app takes advantage of all smartphone features including fingerprint and facial login, push notifications and geolocation for reporting ASB, among many other smartphone-ready features.
Gerry Kelly, CEO, Optus Homes, said, “PayPoint was a natural partner for us as we offer digital payments, convenience and peace of mind for tenants, as well as increased efficiency and reduced costs for housing providers.”
The Optus Homes app is system agnostic and integrates with all established housing management, CRM and scheduling systems in the housing sector. The simple SaaS commercial model charges per tenant per month, with no development fees. The app is available for housing providers of all sizes with full maintenance and support included.
Danny Vant, client services director, PayPoint, said, “Our investment in Optus Homes builds on our recent partnership to integrate our MultiPay digital payments solutions into Optus Homes’ app. This will enable us to improve financial inclusion and convenience for tenants and removing complexity for housing providers.”
