How does TMPL work?
Social Media Platform 2.0
TMPL is a social media platform that allows the residents living in a building or residential area to communicate with their neighbours in a feed similar to Facebook. You can book resources like a laundry slot, patio or overnight room, and you can buy, sell or give items away through TMPL's marketplace.
When it is time to have a barbecue party or a housing association meeting, you can easily send out the invitation by using TMPL, which automatically registers the time and date in the phone's built-in calendar. If you are hungry, you can easily order food from the local restaurants, or order your groceries from the local supermarket. Built-in meters keep track of each apartment's electricity and water consumption, and provide you with customized saving tips. You can compete against others who live in similar apartments to find out who is the most environmentally friendly. More features are on the way which will let you control the lock in the front door, and let you know when post has landed in your post box. It will even let you control the coffee maker remotely, so that the coffee is ready when you get home. (Some of the above services require that the infrastructure in the building you live in supports this).
How much does it cost to use TMPL?
TMPL is free of charge for private individuals
For those living in a TMPL building, the app is free. It is your landlord or housing association who decides how the cost will be charged.
- A housing association pays a connection fee and thereafter a monthly fee for each connected apartment.
- Landlords / property developers who want their own version / license of the platform pay an adjustment fee and then a monthly fee for each connected apartment. The adjustment fee includes modification to the desired design and desired functions / modules.
