Happy New Year from the CPL Team!

It feels a little strange wishing people a Happy New Year this year. However, in the immortal words of that 90’s band D:ream, things can only get better? Whilst this is continually trying for all of us, I’m sure we can all agree that, as strange as it does feel, as we continue to work from home and navigate the situation, wishing each other all the best for 2021, perhaps holds even more weight than it ever has.

We start 2021, with a bit of good news. And I am delighted to introduce two new members of the team – Myk Smith and Michael Dunn. You can read more about Myk and Michael below. For now, please join me in giving them both a warm welcome to CPL Software, Blockworx and INSPCT.

So from us to you, here’s to a prosperous, healthy and hopeful shift towards life beyond the pandemic.

We look forward to working with you in 2021 and as always, thank you for being with us.

Warm and healthy regards,

Crawford and everyone at CPL.

Give yourself the gift of time in 2021?

Do you ever wish you had more time? If you could magic up extra hours per month, what would you do with them? How useful would they be to your business?

When you automate your repairs and maintenance admin when you switch to Blockworx. How is that possible? For every invoice you have to process Blockworx will save you 3-4 minutes. Lets say you process 100 invoices per month, that equates to 7 hours saved – a full day’s work (almost!).

How do we know this? We have been busy beavering away, testing, making improvements and working with one of our clients to pilot the must have app. The 3-4 minutes saved, is straight from the client’s mouth. Not ours. That client is now enjoying the benefits of better efficiencies – saved time and saved money. And of course, this then leads to more opportunities to improve the business.

Following this successful pilot period, we are absolutely delighted to let you know that Blockworx is launching at the end of March. You already know how much value automation can add to your business. So if you would like to continue pushing the envelope and moving forward as an innovative business leader, get in touch with us about adding Blockworx to your business automation strategy.

There comes a point in business life, when we realise we need something more. Something that will push the boundaries of what’s possible. Something to take your business to a whole new level of cost efficiency, compliance and time saving stardom. That something is coming soon in Q1 2021. If you’d like to be first to find out how you can take automation to new heights in your business, please get in touch with us today.

Move over manual reporting…

Another tool to add to your automation strategy in 2021?  We’re making the INSPCT app work even better for you with further integration with CPL. You’ll see more benefits for you and your clients as you switch from manual or outdated inspection and reporting systems.


Payment portals see uplift in usage

With the current restrictions with the majority of offices closed, many clients who still need to and want to make payments can’t because they haven’t got the available means. We have noticed a significant increase in the number of web payment portal transactions taking place over the last 10 months. For reasons that are very obvious. If your business is yet to get on board the online payment portal train, we can help you jump on board. A web portal provides the ideal solution for your clients. And for your business. Get in touch for a friendly, no obligation chat.

Not another podcast?

The popularity of podcasts has exploded. According to Ofcom, podcast listeners reached over 7 million, an increase of 24% from 2018 to 2019. And we hope to add a few more to that figure! Yes, that’s right, we’re launching a new podcast!

And it needs a name! Can you suggest anything? If so, answers on a modern postcard (email, or one of our social channels – LinkedIn Facebook or Twitter) If we pick one that you suggest, we’ll send you a little something to say thanks!

We’re finalising our guestlist which will be a range of familiar, and possibly, not so familiar, people in the property management world. Stay tuned for more details!

That’s it from us folks! Thanks for getting to the end and if there’s anything you’ve read that’s peaked your interest, we’re here to chat or drop us an email. We look forward to catching up with you soon!
