A fast-expanding proptech business has opened a new office in London will serve a growing client base in the capital and across south-east England. Symple, which was launched in May 2021, is a free online platform for residential landlords, estate and letting agents and homeowners to manage property certificates including gas safety, electrical installation condition reports and residential energy performance.
The cloud-based platform also manages bookings for inspections and arranges for accredited and strictly vetted service providers – gas safety engineers, electricians and energy assessors – to carry them out.
Headquarters in Swinton, Greater Manchester, Symple began with just three staff and now has a team of 16.
Its growth plans include expanding its current portfolio of 3,000 properties to 10,000 by the end of 2022, as well as adding a raft of new services. The new office in Hendon, north London, is headed by product specialist, David Schauder, who leads the innovation and development arm of the business.
Founder and chief executive, Simon Dresdner, said, “Our client base in and around the Capital is increasing in size, as is our pool of service providers who carry out the inspections. As we also expand our range of services, it is important to have a presence there.”
