How does the outsourced service work?

We believe in simplicity and flexibility! A brief summary of our ordering process is shown below.

1) You can instruct us using our online portal www.vlive.co.uk , or by calling our Scheduling Team on 0845 0945 192.
We can also setup an API with your current property management system to allow simple ordering from within your own setup.

2) Once you have instructed us we will call your homeowner/tenant to make the appointment with them. You will see the status of this (and the date/time of the appointment) on our online portal.

3) Our local Energy and Property Partner (“EPP”) will visit your homeowner/tenant and carry out the service.

4) The draft report will be sent from our local EPP to our Quality Assurance team for review. Once fully reviewed the report will be sent to you. This whole process takes less than 24 hours (i.e., from the appointment time to report completion).

5) We then invoice you for the service performed – we can invoice per transaction or send a monthly consolidated invoice.

How does the software service work?

All of our services are performed using electronic forms, i.e., our field based staff use electronic forms when onsite to carry out the report/assessment.

We have made these forms available for your use, and they come without a licence fee so you can simply pay per report.

We have two types of form:

1) Standard templates – we have developed standard templates for our whole list of services.

2)Bespoke templates – we can amend our standard templates or create brand new templates for your staff to use.

Both types of template can come in your branding (or branding of your choice). We can also multi brand the same report type (e.g., our Inventory template could be branded for each of your specific clients).

Contact sales@vem.co.uk for more information or speak to your Area Manager to start using our forms.
