Cloud software services provider Rockend has announced a 20 per cent increase on the commission that agencies receive from utilities connections provider Movinghub.
The Movinghub service is a complimentary service that Rockend made available to Property Tree users in 2018.
The service helps agencies to deliver more value to tenants as they move to their new home, and at the same time generates new revenue.
“As a company, our aim is to help real estate agencies deliver more personalised experiences to their clients,” Rockend CEO, Alister Maple-Brown said.
“Offering a utilities connection service to new tenants can be a point of difference for many agencies.”
With margins currently under pressure for many in the real estate game, the company sees this commission increase as a positive move that will have an immediate impact on agencies’ profit line.
“Moving forward, as we continue to grow our partner ecosystem, we expect to create more equally rewarding experiences for our customers,” Mr Maple-Brown said.
The agency commission increase applies to electricity and gas connections and became effective on July 2, 2019:
– Electricity referral commission increased from $58 to $70 per connection
– Gas referral commission increased from $42 to $50 per connection
