2019 was an exciting year for Plentific - we were celebrated as leaders of transformative change - not just in our sector - but across business in the UK (UKBA Business Change/Transformation winner). Following a major funding round, we’re now expanding into the wider professional/commercial real estate sector in Europe, with plans to launch into the US multi-family market later this year.
