We empower landlords and property managers with a platform to manage their properties. We utilise great local trade talent to create more jobs, build community cohesion and provide better services than ever before.

Since our humble beginnings in 2013, we’ve achieved a lot at Plentific:

  • We’re growing fast. We work with many of the biggest property providers in the UK.
  • Dramatically improved outcomes for housing providers, speeding up service delivery fivefold and creating economic opportunities within their local communities.
  • Set a new industry benchmark on responsive repairs by reducing typical time frames (20 days) to less than 4 days.

  • Recognised as ‘Professional Services Partner’ at the UK Housing Awards 2019 and;
  • Repairs and Maintenance Provider of the Year at the 24Housing Awards 2019.
  • Entered partnerships with social enterprises such as Beam, with whom we help co-fund training for homeless people into trades jobs, and thus rebuild their lives.

2019 was an exciting year for Plentific - we’ve been 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 also expanding into the wider professional/commercial real estate sector in Europe - with plans to launch into the US multi-family market next year.

We're a technology led business. We're proud to develop cutting-edge solutions for our customers - and that's only possible to do with a great team. Our culture is open. Empowering. Fast paced. If you're tenacious, passionate and driven, you'll fit right in.
