Google Assistant Investments Program invests in UKs leading AI PM Platform, AskPorter

Today, AskPorter has announced an investment from the Google Assistant Investments Program for the AI driven property management platform.

 At its heart sits ‘Porter,’ a digital artificial intelligence assistant for agents, property managers, and landlords that eliminates mundane tasks & delivers fast, efficient customer service.

 From one single platform, property & facilities managers, and landlords, can automate their workflows with AskPorter which over time learns and improves how they work in a completely customisable way. For tenants & occupants, Porter provides a 24/7 response accessible by text, voice & more providing them with a personal concierge.

 As part of the investment, AskPorter will have access to support and resources from Google’s technical, product, and business development teams. 

 Tom Shrive, Founder & CEO of AskPorter said: “We’re delighted to have been selected as the Google Assistant Investment Program’s first international investment. This is a very positive reflection on our product, our opportunity and our team. It’s incredibly exciting to be able to work with the experts at Google to improve the AI & machine learning technology that powers Porter.  We will be using the funds to attract more world-class talent into our team and build out product in preparation for our Series A early next year, for which we are seeing strong interest from investors.”

 AskPorter also today announces the launch of its ‘Porter Pioneers’ programme, a by application group of fifteen property agencies & institutional landlords across Residential, Commercial & other specialist property sectors.

Lasting for six months beginning January 2019, the AskPorter technical & property team will work closely with these agencies & property managers and landlords in automating their unique workflows & challenges, covering anything & everything involved with world class asset management: from qualifying potential leads & issuing bespoke AST’s, to collecting service charge payments, reconciling invoices & dealing with no heating.
