Belong Technology

The leading community building app for an improved resident experience.

Our White Label products can be tailored to any business for improving community engagement, delivering higher revenue, facilitating surveys, additional services and streamlined operations.

ABOUT BELONG TECHNOLOGY

Our platform started by fostering communities in co-living and Build2Rent and since then has expanded to target all community- based organisations.

Belong Technology is used by UKO Australia’s first co-living operator. The founders of UKO, Alex Thorpe and Rhys Williams launched their first brand, Furnished Property, back in 2002 and since then their brands have extended to include Veriu and Punthill with community as a focus ever since. This app has helped foster community, streamline operations and provided additional services.

Community based mobile apps are a great way to bridge the gap between age groups, bring diversity in a community, give them a sense of belonging and keep them informed about the community activities and services.

SERVICES WE OFFER

Belong Technology is a white label, fully customizable product for the management of Co-living, Build2Rent, Social & Affordable housing or any other community focused organisation.
