Bringing communities on a common floor
MaxHeap Technologies, Bangalore
MaxHeap Technologies cofounders, Vikas Malpani, Sumit Jain and Lalit Mangal have launched an online portal called the CommonFloor.com. The portal addresses a user's complete residential requirements such as searching for an apartment, facilitating interactions within an apartment community, and connecting to relevant service providers.
Malpani's portal is aimed at meeting all aspects of the consumer's needs around the house. The idea to start commonfloor. com emerged from the observation that there were hardly any conversations amongst the owners, buyers and association committee members of several apartment communities. The commonfloor.com is a one-stop shop for connecting apartment owners with home seekers, agents, dealers, residents, association members, and service providers.
The company also provides apartment management software that helps apartment communities manage their accounts and share issues online. The website also provides information on important subjects such as property law, tax, and more to spread awareness among its readers.
Currently present in 105 cities, commonfloor.com has over 28,000 communities listed with it, constituting more than 2,500,000 houses. Malpani now plans to expand the reach of commonfloor.com and its software beyond India, Singapore, U.S., UK, UAE, and Africa.
