Star Pubs & Bars has launched an enhanced property repairs service in response to demand from licensees.

The repairs service features a new online portal enabling 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.

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.

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.”
