Anuj Puri, Chairman – ANAROCK Group says, “From buying and selling homes to managing and maintaining them, real estate digitalization is now a root concept. ApnaComplex is a pioneer in providing housing societies and households with a reliable and trustworthy tech platform for managing their properties. We are clear that the business will run independently and with a distinctive culture that the technology world demands. We are ready to invest aggressively in this platform to bring in the required product features and to hire key talent to help deliver value to all stakeholders.“
“Our acquisition rationale is to extend innovative features and tech upgrades for homeowners, residents, society managing committees, as well as facility and security management teams,” says Puri. “Simultaneously, to connect our developer relationships to make these automated services available to a much wider clientele in India, and piggy-back our cross-border business in GCC for global expansion. We will look beyond just large societies and include small and medium-size complexes, to scale up substantially over the next few years. We also expect to scale up the staff strength to aid operational growth.”
The advanced tech stack is hosted in the cloud, availed through an intuitive front-end mobile app/web portal and completely automates the day-to-day operations of societies, gated communities and apartment complexes. It is a mini-ERP and security solution with major modules for billing & accounting, security & gate management, community engagement, resident services and facility management, combining to render a unique experience for residents.
