To improve communication between property managers, tenants and contractors, the William Pears Group found themselves in need of a system which would simplify the process of managing property repairs. Our team developed software to help the company to remain competitive in the property industry.
Oprias is a web-based property maintenance management software enabling its users to both communicate with tenants and contractors with just one click and store all the necessary information online. The solution provides time-saving and problem-solving maintenance management tools for property managers and tenants.
Our software simplifies property maintenance management processes through the following features:
Property manager portal
- Calls – to manage all the existing and upcoming repair requests from one place,
- Contractors – to store and display contact details of all of the contractors including their certificates,
- Quotes – to request a quote from available contractors, discuss the repair and choose the best vendor,
- Jobs – to monitor repairs from anywhere at any time and to communicate with tenants and contractors with just one click,
- Properties – to store and display all information and files concerning each of the properties,

- Tenant satisfaction – rating contractors by tenants enables property managers to hire the best vendors,
- Attachments – contractors can upload high-quality photos and videos of the repair to update both property managers and tenants on their job progress,

Seeing an increase in the popularity of property management companies, the Hamways Property Management division of the William Pears Group knew they needed to gain a competitive advantage. Back in 2014, they asked us for a platform that would improve their workflow.
The results of deploying such platform are an ever-growing trust among tenants who can now play an active role in the whole maintenance process, increased efficiency achieved by generating and analysing accurate reports and a general possibility of saving time due to automating most of business processes.
