Forget the Oscars, ignore the Nobels, dismiss the Pultizers - the year’s most important awards are taking place this autumn.
On 22 September, the Coliving Awards will take place in Amsterdam followed by Property Week’s BTR360 Awards on 10 October in London. Celebrating stand-out performers in their sectors, the two ceremonies’ respective proptech categories also shine a light on technology's growing importance to innovative living.
The Coliving Awards recognise how software drives the coliving sector towards ‘greater operational efficiency, sustainability, profitability, and interactivity’. Meanwhile, the Build-to-Rent Awards celebrates the ‘continued excellence’ of tech innovators in the sector.
At res:harmonics, we’re proud to be nominated for both Proptech awards, but we’re even prouder that property management software is being recognised for its role in delivering excellent operations and driving future growth in innovative living. Here’s why.
PropTech for coliving
From launching a new coliving development and securing its first residents to delivering impeccable guest experience and scaling nationwide, coliving operators need technology that helps them grow their business without limitations and addresses coliving’s unique challenges.
For example, coliving is centred on the concepts of community and flexibility. Operators need to bring together a group of like-minded individuals, enable them to seamlessly share public areas (and access private rooms), and cater for a wide range of different stay lengths. In other words, they need a unique combination of channel management, smart locks and customisable booking systems, before they even think about managing day-to-day operations.
All-in-one management software like res:harmonics integrates all the coliving management tools you need into one platform, such as automated housekeeping, billing and bookings as well as remote management of sales channels, maintenance tasks and access control. Specifically designed for coliving operations, coliving property management software develops new features as the industry develops new needs; and it’s this symbiotic relationship that sees PMS celebrated on the Coliving Awards honours list.

PropTech for BTR
BTR is a growing force in the UK with over 250,000 homes either completed, under construction or in the planning pipeline. But with so much competition for tenants in the UK housing market, BTR relies on technology to attract and retain residents.
From viewing properties virtually to physically walking through the door of their new home, BTR-focused management software bolsters every touch point of a tenant’s pre-arrival journey. Virtual 3D tours for those who can’t visit in-person. Personalised quotes sent automatically to their inbox. Digital contract sharing and online inventories available in one simple, seamless process.
After residents are in place, BTR management software also helps improve retention by enhancing the resident experience. Booking state-of-the-art amenities at the touch of a button. Receiving digital parcel alerts from the online concierge. Making rental payments and extending leases via an app.
By providing an easy-to-use resident app, remote operations management and streamlined comms in one unified platform, an all-in-one PMS like res:harmonics help BTR operators stand out from the crowd. That’s why property management systems are recognised as one of the most innovative BTR technologies at the BTR360 Awards.
And the award goes to…PropTech
No matter who wins the individual proptech awards this autumn, the real winner is PropTech itself. Over the past two decades, innovative PropTech software has propelled the growth of the innovative living industry.
At res:harmonics, we’ve not only seen coliving and BTR rise into the mainstream, we’ve paved the way. Combining 15 years’ expertise of running innovative living operations with pioneering tech know-how, our PMS brings best practice to the coliving and BTR industries.
