One third of Australians live in a rental home and one-in-eight own one, but the experience is often, well… not great. Renters have to shout to be heard. Property investors have little visibility or control over one of their most valuable assets. And property managers are shackled to antiquated technology. So, we’re rebuilding the $53B property management industry from the ground up with a ground-breaking, data-powered platform for payments, accounting, communication and work that delivers a better experience for everyone.

Ailo (https://ailo.io/) is a data-powered platform which makes the property management experience extraordinary. At Ailo our vision is to use our industry leading data insights and technology to reimagine the property management experience for agencies, landlords and tenants.
