Referencing service provider Vouch has launched “Home Move Assistant”, a portal designed to create commission-based revenue streams for letting agents and ease the transition of home services for tenants.
The portal enables agents to offer tenants a range of services from energy providers, broadband companies and insurance providers.
Simon Tillyer (pictured), director of Vouch, said: “Having worked as letting agents ourselves, our Home Move Assistant has been developed with both agents and tenants in mind.
“We know how vital it is to not only develop new revenue streams, but to ensure your tenants and landlords have a smooth, positive experience with each tenancy.
“We’ve therefore simplified a process which can make moving house complicated and laborious, whilst creating new opportunities for agents to earn commission.
“We’re delighted to see a range of our existing customers embrace the new portal and are already starting to earn commission on these services.”
Agents can use the Home Move Assistant to offer service packages to all tenants, landlords, home buyers and sellers, whether or not they’ve been referenced through Vouch’s own online referencing tool.
The agents and landlords who use the new platform will be provided with their own URL and branded webpage, which can be customised and shared with tenants and landlords.
This solution will make it easier for landlords and letting agents to onboard new occupants and help them secure deals with household name providers such as Scottish Power, Virgin, BT and Sky Entertainment, with whom Vouch has already brokered deals on behalf of their agent customers.
