Moving Soon

Affordable Housing portal

We have developed an automated feed to save our clients time and money. MovingSoon is a specialised online portal for the advertising of affordable properties. Many of our clients are housing associations. We found that many housing associations wanted to retain their Rightmove account whilst using our services. We generated a software to allow housing associations to upload their properties to MovingSoon, our software automatically streams the adverts over to Rightmove at the click of a button. This means the housing association does not need to spend time uploading to two sites.

What prompted you to develop it?

We received feedback from a client that they were pleased with our services but it was taking them a lot of time to upload their property adverts to two separate sites.  We took this feedback and developed the automated feed which reduced the manual work.  As there are a number of clients that use Rightmove alongside our site this has been a great benefit.  

Is it in production or use?

Yes, we launched the feed in September 2017.

Who inspires you?

Richard Branson for what he achieved, but also entrepreneurs I have been fortunate to work with when I was part of the Entrepreneurial Sparks program in Manchester in 2016. Locally Peter Johnson for how he built up Park Group.

What do you hope to achieve in developing this innovation?

We understand the strains that many of our clients are under, especially during these times when the UK housing crisis is at its peak.  We hope that we are able to provide a fast, efficient and cost effective service that relieves the pressure and ensures consistency in information displayed to those looking for homes.
