November 21st 2011, Leatherhead, Surrey, UK. -
A new mobile application for iPhone and Android handsets has been developed and released by KODIME on behalf of its client, Catalyst HomeBuy.

This app lists and promotes affordable homes to buy and rent, across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Milton Keynes and Surrey counties. The application is free to download from the iTunes App store and Android Marketplace, and enables anyone with an iPhone or Android device to instantly access the wide selection of home ownership options provided by Catalyst HomeBuy.

Users can view multiple properties on a map and navigate and search by chosen area. Saving search criteria and individual properties allows for offline use.

Uniquely, the app enables users who have already registered with the HomeBuy service to use their existing profile information for optimised search results, and for non-registered users to easily complete their registration straight from their mobile phone.

For each listed property entry, comprehensive details such as photos and location map are provided, and users can directly contact with the participating housing providers with a single tap, for a direct call or to request more information.

A special section provides information on solicitors and financial advisers that can help with completing a property purchase, listed by region.

A dedicated Events sections informs users continually about upcoming events such as open days or HomeBuy shows in their chosen area. Using date-driven push notifications users are reminded of new and upcoming events, directly on their mobile handset.

KODIME's Marketing Director, Brigitte Köpke, comments: "We are very pleased to roll out this new app with the team at Catalyst Housing. We've put all our experience in creating easy to use, interactive mobile apps and mobile marketing in the housing sector into this exciting project."

Farhaan Mirza, Marketing Manager for Catalyst Housing added: “We are extremely enthusiastic about the release of the Catalyst HomeBuy iPhone app and are confident that it will further enhance the service that we offer the existing 40,000 plus households that currently interact with the service across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Surrey.”

The new app is powered by the KOMOBILITY platform (in version PROPtxt), KODIME’s 100% web-based software solution. All property and contact data is synced automatically with the Catalyst HomeBuy backend services for instant updates and user interactions, such as registering new users and generating alerts to the respective sales teams.
