Challenger portal OpenBrix has lined up its first list of services to join the platform including satellite giant Sky and the Lettings Hub as it limbers up to launch, most likely at the same time as rival Boomin.
OpenBrix hopes its offering will rival the Bruce brothers with its unique blockchain technology, democratic membership model, multi-listing service capability and services plug-in.
This will enable agents to connect their existing providers and automate much of their third-party sales and administration, making it easier to onboard sales and lettings instructions into their fee-paying networks.
OpenBrix CEO Adam Pigott says dozens more leading industry suppliers are about to be announced including deposits, lead management, lettings software and inventory platforms or services.
“So far no one has said no to joining OpenBrix,” says Pigott (left). “And we’re also about to sign up one of the industry’s leading training platforms.”
The company’s most recent sign-up is white goods replace or repair service Product Care.
“As an ex-property manager, I was immediately impressed with Product Care and the super-slick, effortless nature of their product,” says Piggott.
“Not only do they provide convenience and speed, but their price point is infinitely lower than the big retail names.”
