Cover Story


Proptech (property technology) is now the buzzword in the industry. Airbnb’s success has motivated a lot of technopreneurs to introduce their proptech startups. These fast-growing proptech startups are changing the way we invest in property as it dismantles the traditional way of buying, selling and building properties.

While many proptech platforms focus on the matching properties with potential buyers/tenants, Jeff Tan took a leap of faith to explore a different segment, to go purely B2B (Business-to-Business).

Jeff started his entrepreneurial journey in the property industry since 2011, where he co-founded Proprop Management Sdn Bhd, a property management company providing investment solutions by assisting investors seeking value investment & tenant management. In 2016, Jeff and his partners, Clement Ng and Law co-founded RentGuard.

RentGuard is a proptech platform that caters to property agencies as one-stop tech solutions to enable agents to perform more efficiently. It offers mobile booking system and CRM to property agents, bringing convenience and freedom to them, saving their valuable travel and waiting time.

“Real estate agents are always on the go. They not only need to constantly attend roadshows and events to collect leads but also need to accompany clients to property sites. On top of that, there are lots of paperwork and data entry tasks. RentGuard is helping agents to save time by automating and simplifying the data management tasks so that they can focus on closing deals and building good relationships with more clients,” shared by Jeff.

By using the services of RentGuard, agencies and leaders can remotely monitor the group sales and commission payout of the agents. Meanwhile, agents can submit their cases anywhere via the online platform. Agents don’t need to travel all the way back to the office just to key-in their leads and cases anymore.

“Imagine you were bringing clients to preview sites at Kepong area, then you have to rush back to your office in Ampang to submit the case. If it was during peak hours, you might get stuck in the traffic for hours. But with RentGuard, you can submit data to your cloud account and schedule one more preview session with another group of clients. In the end, more sales generated and more commission earned.”

Besides, the system also reminds agents automatically when tenancy periods about to end. This feature enables agents to start preparing for tenancy renewal cases at least 2 months in advance.

“Recently, we’ve introduced the auto-debit feature for recurring rental fees. Agents and landlords don’t need to remind and urge tenants to pay their rental anymore.”

RentGuard is proven as a helpful tool for real estate players, with over 1000 agents actively using the platform on a daily basis. “We are committed to transforming the real estate industry.”

RentGuard has joined ZOM-IN.com to collaborate in efforts to empower aspiring youths. Join us now at www.zom-in.com to participate in exciting events coming soon!
