GLASGOW-based CPL Software, which produces software solutions for the property factor and block management sectors, has launched the Blockworx app that allows property factors and block managers to communicate with contractors, and organise repairs and maintenance easily and quickly.
Representing a £150,000 investment for the company and 18 months in the planning, Blockworx connects contractors to property factors electronically, saving time and money.
Brian Welsh, managing director of CPL, founded the company in 2010 following a management buyout.
He said: “This is the latest in a series of innovations that has seen us build innovative technologies to streamline and digitise a market that has been manually labour intensive.
“Back in 2015, we introduced a client portal and app to enable factors to communicate electronically with their clients, view invoices and make payments. Blockworx now allows factors to communicate with contractors and further digitises the sector.
“With Blockworx launching at the same time as the pandemic hit, it has shown just how important technology is in our sector.”
