We are proud of what we do. And we’re delighted when our peers, our clients or the business world at large recognise that we’re good at it. Business awards are a sought-after accolade of achievement, a veritable endorsement of success in business and in Greater London, the inaugural SME London Business Awards help to raise the profile of industrious, hardworking and enterprising SME’s. This year, we are thrilled to have been awarded the SME London Business Award for Best Property Management Software Provider 2017.
What is an SME Award? Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are businesses whose personnel numbers fall below certain limits, with the abbreviation “SME” being used in the European Union. SMEs are also said to be responsible for driving innovation and competition in many economic sectors.The SME London Business Awards are open to all sole traders and businesses in the region with less than 250 employees.
Guy Windsor-Lewis, CEO and Founder of Locale said: “We’re delighted to have won this award. PropTech is now in full swing and its great to see the property world, from estate agents to asset managers, starting to embrace technology. In the ‘property management’ sector, a few giants are already well placed although they tend to focus on the financial aspects of collecting rent and managing service charges and are playing catch up with the smaller more service orientated organisations who are actually engaging with the building managers and concierge style needs. Locale is an evolving company and we are not content to stand still – we have an exciting roadmap plus numerous partners with whom we are working from key holding, security, concierge. PropTech is generating loads of new tech and companies and some of these will work their way into the market – beware the more conservative asset managers reluctant to embrace the ‘new world’ – however we see a new breed of thirty somethings, excited and ready to use the new tech that is now available to them and which can provide greater efficiencies, more communications and better data.”
