Master Lock partners with CubicLease to offer innovative property management solutions
Security super brand, Master Lock, has partnered with CubicLease, a residential property-viewing platform, to facilitate a safe and convenient alternative to the traditional residential viewing process. Using Master Lock's innovative Select Access Smart Bluetooth Key Lock Box hardware and Vault Enterprise management software in tandem with CubicLease's state-of-the-art app will allow for greater personalisation, unaccompanied self-viewings, and live communication tools between viewers, landlords and agents.
The partnership is yet another example of Master Lock leveraging disruptive innovation to shape the future of property management. Master Lock has worked for almost 100 years to produce a next-generation Bluetooth key lock box that is both robust and ideal for sharing keys or fobs with multiple people from your smartphone.
Launched officially in October 2019, CubicLease, while early in its inception, has already run trials on multiple properties and is officially taking its product to market. And, with social distancing measures still in place, the app's immense flexibility and easy-to-use interface could pose the perfect solution for the UK residential property market.
Speaking about the launch, founder James Owusu said "After a lot of hard work over the past year, we are delighted to be launching CubicLease to market. Prospective tenants can find, view, and make offers on properties straight away, while landlords and agents have complete assurance via our ID, affordability, and tracking tools, with Master Lock playing an integral role in our delivery. We believe this is the future of unoccupied home viewing and we are excited about the substantial interest we have already generated."
Security is always a concern for sellers and renters, and many homeowners worry about who has access to their property when it goes on the market. That is why Vault Enterprise integrates easy-to-use software with Bluetooth-enabled security devices to streamline access management. Essentially, property managers and homeowners can track and share access to multiple Bluetooth lock boxes via one simple smartphone app.
The trusted Vault Enterprise software has already been rolled out across the UK/US in hospitals, oil and gas, telecoms, real estate, and small businesses. Master Lock's Vault Enterprise has no hidden long-term contracts, monthly fees, or shared access fees. Once users have bought the robust hardware (with Vault Enterprise's software already built in), they simply download the app to open/lock the box and share the access with whomever they wish by issuing or revoking access in real time.
Master Lock's 100 years of security expertise (celebrating centenary in 2021) means users can rely on a software that has been perfected and designed from the ground up by a team of dedicated security professionals. Add that to CubicLease's rapidly growing reputation as a trailblazing tech startup and you have a winning formula.
