We look forward to benefiting from John’s expertise in both technical and management roles to grow iResidenz together.”
John who was introduced to Ramesh by a mutual contact said, “IResidenz has a great potential to scale. I believe that proptech has much more to offer, especially in this region. With a large percentage of people residing in high-rise and gated or guarded communities, iResidenz is right on the proptech path where the status quo is challenged with introduction of technology creating better consumer experience and productivity. I am excited to be part of iResidenz’s journey.”
Earlier this year iResidenz successfully secured a seven-figure funding round from Interbase Resources Sdn. Bhd. that runs popular marketplace of Lelong.my in Malaysia. The strong financial backup has helped iResidenz to focus on, not just expanding its team but to also strengthen its sales force.
iResidenz has already customers in Klang Valley, Johor and Sabah, and, it is looking to expand into cities including Penang in the near future.
iResidenz is an emerging online resident portal which is ideal for condominiums and gated communities to make property management and communications easier for owners, tenants, and property management offices. It connects homeowners and tenants to the management office for payments, bookings of facilities, complaints, notices and more. The workload of the management office is also reduced through automation of administrative tasks. Furthermore, it serves as a valuable platform for property management companies and property developers where they get an access to real-time reports of multiple properties and other features.
