Finding a home and moving in has never been easier for tenants, thanks to a new partnership between Snug and Direct Connect Australia.

The partnership will deliver real value to Real Estate partners by combining Snug’s innovative technology with Direct Connect’s experience and expertise in moving, to settle tenants faster and more efficiently than ever before.

“Direct Connect Australia has moved more than 1 million Australians over the past decade and we believe this new partnership with Snug will bring an even greater level of service for our customers as the rental landscape shifts,” said David Holman, CEO of Direct Connect Australia. “The integration between DC and Snug enables seamless utility connection referral for renters and removes the manual processing for agents.”

Snug Match helps Property Managers lease properties faster, by using a cloud based platform and a unique matching algorithm to find the most compatible tenant for the properties available.

“The existing rental application process is outdated, time consuming and costly for both renters and agents. Snug has reimagined the process as a mobile digital experience where renters can build their rental reputation and secure their best property quickly. ” says Justin Butterworth, Founder & CEO of Snug

“We believe this will be a win for Real Estate Agents and a win for tenants. The entire experience for both will be faster, simpler and easier” said David Holman.
