Busy Living gives accommodation operators a super-sleek online platform to manage move-ins, maximise student engagement and help you improve both revenue and the customer experience.
At the start of the university year, student accommodation buildings will be hectic with new arrivals throughout the day, all excited to get moved in. The platform will showcase upcoming events, clubs and how they can use amenity spaces and facilities safely.
The app is designed to maximise student engagement with facilities and amenity spaces. Busy Living uses rationing methods that include: restricting consecutive bookings, blocking a venue for an arranged event, monetising slots with different rates at peak times or leaving them free altogether.
It’s not just about the University or College, BusyLiving makes it possible for you to licence an app for Clubs and Societies Free of charge to your audience. The benefit to you being to be promote inclusion and set standards and to drive community engagement.
Simply encourage all students to download your app and electronically check-in before they arrive, reducing the number of people waiting to register, and registration time, even if they e-check-in whilst standing in your queue! Students can preload their passport and credit card details, and answer all the usual questions. At the same time you can introduce them to the best of student life and capture their preferences. Upon arrival, your team can enter the students' e-check-in number to complete checks and handover keys.
Your app is the place where you can introduce your students to local service providers and any introductory offers you may have negotiated for them and also a place where students share using chat channels as well as recommend the best of what they like locally.
Busy Living comes with a fully-loaded event manual with over 200 suggested events and easy to use tools, empowering committees to create their own flyers to advertise the events.
We enable you to instantly go cashless, using a cloud-based platform and a mobile app that can be tailored for almost any use. From room hire or ticketing; to promotion, social clubs and events.
The mobile app can be white-labeled and adapted to suit your organisation. Busy Living’s plug-and-play set-up means it plays nicely with all legacy systems, so whether you’re using it to run events, charge subscriptions or generate event fees, its simple and efficient interface will link straight in with your accountancy programmes and with your users’ social media platforms and mobile devices. And because it’s cashless, everything is seamless.
Offering students a native app on their mobile phone means they can easily access relevant information including room manuals, rules and behavioural codes, WiFi information, housekeeping services, laundry services and newspaper delivery.
Students are encouraged to upload photos of maintenance issues directly through the app. The app will automatically send these directly to your on-site maintenance engineers. Engineers will be able to upload before and after photos of their work, ensuring that it has been completed to the highest standard. When they’re finished with the job, your residents will be notified with a request to rate the repair.
