Vision of a platform for residential property owners
Until now, no end-to-end platform existed for residential properties, neither in Switzerland nor in any other country worldwide. The vision for Liiva – a joint venture between Raiffeisen and Mobiliar – is to integrate all key features and applications for owners of private residential properties in a single shop. Liiva’s ‘one-stop shop’ platform includes this full range of features, e.g. property search, financing options, new property insurance, assessing the need for renovations, appraising properties in their current state, and even selling properties.
Launching a new platform together with Zühlke
The vision was clear. But first, Liiva had to be founded as a new business and the team assembled. Liiva turned to Zühlke to work on developing the digital platform. The platform is built on Microsoft Azure and running entirely in the Swiss Datacenter. Together, they took the original idea and turned it into a unique residential property platform in just eight months.
Further integration of third-party providers
The plan is to continuously develop the Liiva platform in order to form the core of the ecosystem for private residential property. The goal is to implement additional services, including from third parties such as building contractors, tax advisory firms, and architecture firms. The basis for achieving this is the platform’s open standard, which makes Liiva a digital complement to the current business model of the two parent companies, Mobiliar and Raiffeisen. In turn, customers can be more proactive and gain access to an even more comprehensive range of services.
