From accounting to renting, including drafting and signing regulatory documents… Kaliz simplifies rental management. Its solution stands out from the competition by relying on proprietary technology, owned exclusively by the company, which enables a large part of the processes to be automated and digitised.
« Automation is ideal for rental management, which is a back-office business », says Jérémy Girard, co-founder of Kaliz alongside Olivier Duverdier. This makes the accounting fully automated and interaction smooth and easy. « We are a sort of marketplace for rental property, allowing owners to respond in real time to tenants’ needs via the platform », summarises Jérémy Girard.
For Kaliz, data is « paramount, especially for our rental investor clients, who are looking for financial returns », explains Jérémy Girard. The platform uses data to provide figures on properties and to provide its clients with personalised advice.
Another competitive advantage is indirect distribution (B2B2C). « Our end clients are landlords and tenants, our indirect clients are real estate businesses who need to increase the value of their business and maintain a link with their customers », says Jérémy Girard.
The proptech plans to launch fundraising in late November, for an amount of €3-4 M in capital, supplemented by debt. Objectives: to step up commercial development and support the technical and functional development of the platform, by expanding the tech and product teams and creating a data team to integrate the AI.
Kaliz turned to the Occitanie Region’s « Start’Oc Process » scheme in its start-up phase and to finance its working capital (still in progress). The company also turns to AD’OCC for personalised support for its innovative project to automate accounting on its platform.
« Our AD’OCC contacts are friendly and always looking for solutions for companies. These are teams that love what they do, and we can feel that in the support they provide », concludes the co-founder.
