MP is ‘OnBoard’ for software launch


OnBoard Pro Software Team

GUY Opperman MP visited the offices of a national property software company which recently launched in the North East.

The Hexham MP attended the official launch of OnBoard Pro, which has been created to revolutionise the rental property market, on Thursday, December 11.

OnBoard Pro’s software will provide agents, landlords and tenants with a simple, fast and efficient one-stop solution to renting a property. It is estimated that up to 18 hours of administrative processes can be saved by using the cloud and mobile based service.

Mr Opperman MP said: “The OnBoard Pro team is run by some of my Tynedale constituents, and they were keen for me to understand their business, not least as it employs a lot of people locally. Everyone knows the rental property market is tricky to negotiate so to have something like this will radically improve it and ultimately save time, effort and money for all parties involved.”

Stephen Purvis, OnBoard Pro CEO, said: “Guy Opperman MP has been supportive of the business since we first introduced him to our plans, so we’re delighted to be able to welcome him to our Newcastle offices to see the progress we’ve made since we launched the product to market.

“We really believe in the OnBoard Pro solution. We’re passionate about empowering letting agents and landlords to offer a better service to their customers, building some much-needed trust and transparency within the sector. We are also proud to have the first fully integrated Right to Rent verification service that is fully compliant with the Immigration Act 2014, making landlords and letting agents legal and safe; all at no extra cost to OnBoard Pro customers.

“And let’s not forget that aside from the benefits to the industry, we’re also investing heavily in our Newcastle offices and have already created more than 20 jobs with plans to continue to expand our headcount significantly over the coming months.”

OnBoard Pro Ltd offers a complete and affordable solution for the rental property market by providing letting agents with the tools to comprehensively check the suitability of tenants, use an industry leading tenant scoring process, record legally binding and detailed photographic inventories, submit gas and electricity meter readings direct to providers, and produce digitally signed tenancy agreements.

This is all done from within the same application and can be completed on the same day, and in most cases in under an hour and at the property.

OnBoard Pro has been launched by the people behind Newcastle software firm SGP Consulting and is based at Newburn Riverside in the city.

There are over 3,300 multi-office lettings agents nationally with most being located in the major cities of London, Birmingham and Manchester.
