Tipi ‘throws rental rule book out of the window’ as it launches new digital platform designed by Riverr
Tipi, the lifestyle-focussed rental homes company, has announced the launch of a new digital platform, as it seeks to create an easier, better everyday home life for those who rent. The platform was created in partnership with Lab Group, the independent agency group that uses a blend of neuromarketing, psychology and behavioural economics to design, build and market digital brands and experiences.
How do you want to rent?
Tipi has created an entirely new rental proposition, with no fees or deposits and all utilities and broadband included with a keen focus on customer service. Tipi renters can enjoy beautifully designed apartments, with furnishings and appliances from partners like John Lewis & Partners and Samsung, as well as access to shared social spaces, hotel-like customer service, regular resident events, on-site gyms, and discounts and offers from partners like Zipcar and Bloom & Wild.
The new site aims to drive interest in Tipi properties amongst London’s renters and to demonstrate that Tipi is the best choice for better, easier renting. It enables visitors to find out more about the Tipi rental experience and to book a viewing of one of its properties.
The launch of the digital platform follows a recent rebrand and launch campaign for Tipi, developed in partnership with creative agency Bandstand, which positions Tipi as offering a ‘Rental Rebellion’.
In line with its human insight-centred approach, Riverr employed several neuro principles in order to design the platform, including processing fluency, cognitive ease and prototypicality. Using the new Tipi brand identity as a starting point, the site features authentic photography, gallery wall layouts, texture and white space to allow the content to ‘breathe’ and make it easily digestible.
Dominic McVeigh, Marketing Manager, Tipi, said:
“We’ve spent the last three years learning all about our customers and understanding what makes them tick, in order to offer a new way of renting. We know they want an easy, hassle-free experience, with plenty of choice and flexibility, and that they crave transparency and straight-talking when choosing a new home. Working with the Lab Group, we’ve created a website that’s a big step forward in us delivering this customer experience through our digital channels. We’ve been impressed by their highly collaborative process and excellent client service.”
Steve Radjen, Head of Digital Planning, Lab Group, said:
“Tipi have a truly unique proposition in the rental marketplace, so it’s been really exciting to work with them on the launch of their new site. We’re proud to have developed a platform which brings their offering to life and makes it easy for renters to find out more about the benefits of living with Tipi.”
Tipi, the all-inclusive professional rental service, is wholly-owned by Quintain, the property development and investment specialist and the team behind Wembley Park. Tipi is a ‘Build to Rent’ or Private Rental Sector (PRS) management company which professionally manages and leases contemporary apartments to customers without charging agents’ fees. Unique to Tipi is that Quintain owns and operates the wider Wembley Park estate which ensures the environment surrounding the apartments is safe, controlled, clean and well connected. Tipi has four apartment buildings on the development, and residents can enjoy access to its food, shopping, culture and entertainment in a vibrant, creative community.
Tipi’s buildings at Wembley Park, Montana, Dakota, Alto and Landsby offer studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments, with rents inclusive of all utility bills and superfast broadband, with the option to upgrade to ultra-fast 1Gb/s. Most apartments boast a balcony and all benefit from access to private gardens. 24-hour concierge and night security meet customers’ everyday needs and additional services can be added to tenancy agreements such as secure underground parking, domestic cleaning, laundry and dry cleaning services.
