Global Student Living (GSL) and Wookify have today announced a technology partnership to deliver new services, enhance data security, and improve the interoperability of the systems underpinning the success of the Purpose-Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) industry.

GSL’s strong client network, industry knowledge and proprietary global data sets will be complemented with Wookify’s in-depth operational technology experience within the PBSA industry, most notably at GSA. The partnership will allow for the development of a number of new agile GSL data solutions, and will provide GSL’s clients with a natural consulting partner for API integrations and bespoke solutions as it continues its international growth.

Wookify’s expertise and additional capacity will also help ensure that GSL continues to maintain its leading Data Security and Privacy Protection credentials across an increasing number of different regulatory regimes and global markets.

GSL Founder and CEO Tim Daplyn commented “We are delighted to have elevated our strong working relationship into a more formal partnership with Wookify. Our rapid growth offers many exciting opportunities to deliver new and enhanced services to our clients, incorporating the latest AI and machine learning technologies. Perhaps less glamourous but even more important is our commitment to the highest standards of data security and regulatory compliance as we continue to expand into new markets.”

Wookify Co-Founder and Director Jan Mlodianowski added “This collaboration perfectly aligns with our commitment to driving innovation and delivering tailored technology solutions across the residential sector. The opportunity for Wookify to work closely with GSL, and to support our mutual clients together over the coming years, was one we couldn’t overlook. The global PBSA industry is in an exciting place, with new markets emerging whilst others enter a phase of maturity. Investors and operators need partners that understand these complex challenges and opportunities at a deep, structural level, but able to provide simple, secure and accessible solutions – this is what our partnership with GSL is all about.”
