Flatfair partners with Spike Global on tenant app


Rental payments technology firm Flatfair has partnered with proptech company Spike Global to improve the rental experience of tenants living with Apo, Ecoworld’s build-to-rent platform. 


The partnership will see Flatfair assist with the resident onboarding process by adding referencing services to Spike’s list of products. Spike’s reservations and lettings software currently manages a tenant’s journey all the way from reservation, through enquiry and through to move in.

The partnership will also enable Apo tenants to sign up for Flatfair’s 'no deposit' solution, which allows tenants to pay a one-off membership fee equal to one week’s rent at the start of their tenancy, authorise their debit card and settle bills at the end.

Franz Doerr, Flatfair CEO, said: 'Both Flatfair and Spike share the common goal - to streamline the rental experience for everyone, making it fairer and more transparent for all parties.

'Working together, we hope to set a new benchmark for tenants in the build-to-rent sector, ensuring the onboarding process is as simple, straightforward and efficient as possible for Apo tenants.

'We are also thrilled to be able to offer Apo tenants access to our no deposit solution, which has already saved thousands of renters across Britain more than £10 million in up-front costs.'

Jeremy Heath-Smith, Spike Global CEO, said: 'Here at Spike, we are committed to improving the community and overall rental experience.

'During lockdown, meaningful technology has never been more important in keeping people connected.

'We have worked closely with flatfair to deliver a bespoke platform designed to make the Apo tenancy journey simple from start to finish, making residents’ daily lives easier and connecting them to amenities, services and community support at the touch of a button.'
