The Challenge

A peer-peer platform which allows individuals to rent unoccupied living spaces and short term lodging to guests

Temp Lettings is a revolutionary property and lettings website which brings owners and landlords with short term lets into contact with customers looking for accomodation on a short-term basis. The temporary lettings market has exploded in recent years as services such as Airbnb break new ground.

Powerful property search

Lightflows were approached by Temp Lettings to develop their new short term lettings web site and web application. The project offers clients the ability to add their property advert for free or pay for a premium service. There’s a twist in that customers looking for accomadation can also post their requirements too. Premium advertisers have the ability to contact customers who are looking for property directly, which is a unique feature of Temp Letting’s business model.

The Solution

Lightflows developed a powerful, faceted property search feature which shows available properties on a map.

Advertisting management platform

An advert management and payment system was developed which allows customers to purchase adverts for varying lengths of time. Payments are taken through the system and the advert will run for a length of time before expiring. Customers can manage their adverts from their accounts and adjust them as necessary, renewing them by purchasing more time.

The app facilitates communication between members with a messaging system which logs and lists conversations so that both renters and proprietors can keep track of potential lets.

The Results

The Temp Lettings team has been overjoyed with the finished product and so are the customers.
