Locale is the brainchild of Managing Director, Guy Windsor-Lewis. The innovative privately owned company produces estate management portals for some of the UK’s most prestigious property brands and iconic landmarks.
Originally conceived as an idea for management portals for business parks, demand for Locale grew and grew. As technology improved throughout the years, so did Locale’s service. After initially targeting the commercial property management sector, an award winning portal launched them into residential and mixed-use space. This makes Locale the only company in the UK to specialise in all three spaces within property management software.
