New technology enhances Star's repairs service

The repairs service features a new online portal available 24/7 from any mobile device or computer. The portal enables licensees to log repairs, view a job’s status in real time and feedback on their satisfaction with completed work.  It also notifies licensees by text or email when there is any change in their repair’s status.

To make the portal a one-stop shop for repairs and maintenance, licensees can access their statutory certificates and their renewal schedule on the site. The portal complements Star’s existing telephone help desk, giving more choice to licensees in how they manage repairs.

The new service also includes a dedicated specialist to oversee more complex jobs involving heating and cellar cooling systems in addition to an enhanced audit regime to ensure contractors maintain high standards.

Chris Moore, Property & Strategy Director, Star Pubs & Bars said: “We're constantly looking to improve the support we provide licensees. We started with what licensees told us they wanted and designed the repairs service around their needs. Good communication was key for licensees. Technology has revolutionised how companies communicate with customers in other sectors such as parcel deliveries and we wanted to bring similar improvements to the way we communicate property repairs.”
