TenTel and Hallmark combine as ‘one-stop shop’ for letting agents



Challenger telecoms company TenTel has acquired ownership of utility management firm Hallmark to provide an all-inclusive hub for the lettings industry.

This acquisition along with an ongoing partnership with British Gas offers a one-stop shop for change of lease management, including changeover administration of tenants, broadband and phone services and all utilities.

Investment of over £100,000 in new technology, such as Hallmark’s Letting Agent Portal, enables fast check in/outs at no charge, offering commission to letting agents and expediting the process for tenants.

This acquisition has also led to additional staff hires to focus on customer experience with the office moving to Edinburgh.

Managing Director of TenTel, Robert McKechnie said the acquisition was an exciting next step for the telecoms provider, increasing their service capacity for letting agents nation-wide.

“The combined experience and services of TenTel and Hallmark will help letting agents save time and resources while earning additional revenue from our referral programme,” Mr McKechnie said.

“We were impressed with Hallmark’s 12 years’ service in the industry and identified this merger as the way forward to provide an all-inclusive service.”

Hallmark offers services to assist letting agents manage tenant utilities, council tax and property services and is currently used by over 1,200 agents in the UK.

TenTel is one of the few service providers that offers no-contract and short-term contract broadband and telephone services, a concept that has proven popular with the lettings market with over 1,000 new customers joining every month.

TenTel is a ‘challenger’ telecoms company that offers a unique service giving residential tenants the opportunity to have phone, broadband and TV services ‘live the day they arrive’ at their new property. Its emphasis and focus on providing world-class customer service and ‘being on the customers’ side’ also makes for a unique and refreshing experience within the telecoms sector.
