With the increase in online estate agency websites - married with an ever more demanding customer base – how can you ensure that your estate agency practice has the infrastructure to support this seismic change in buyer behaviour?
The traditional estate agency model is being challenged by the ability to purchase online, and it is now more important than ever to have a reliable and efficient infrastructure to support your business growth.
Timing is everything, especially within such a competitive market. Therefore it is imperative that you have the ability to get your properties listed as soon as they come on the market - keeping your vendors happy and reaching out to key applicants as soon as you can. This is where the need for a superfast, resilient Business Internet connection and reliable Network come in to play, enabling you to win the all-important battle of first to market secures the sale.
Online Property Demand
Technology is changing almost every part of our daily lives, and no-one can ignore this. Clients expect to be able to access properties on demand, from anywhere and at any time. Without the ability to list these properties quickly you could face losing potential business and suffer competitive disadvantage.
A Smart Business Internet solution is the key to enabling you to list your properties quickly, respond to client enquiries and win applicants. Therefore it is essential that you use a high-bandwidth– we offer up to 1000Mbps - Business Internet service. Delivered across our 100GigE Network, this ensures that the internet can be accessed efficiently and data can be uploaded/downloaded in superfast time.
Enabling Business Continuity
With the stress and pressure behind moving, should your business encounter a disaster - such as your entire Network crashing - your customers will not care and will not expect their moving process to be hindered. Therefore it is essential to have a Disaster Recovery plan in place to get everything back up and running as soon as possible. Our DRaaS solution ensures that everything is in place to allow employees to continue working, should anything happen to disrupt regular operations.
With the wealth of data your agency practise will hold, can you afford to run the risk of losing it? It is essential to have a suitable back-up solution in place, enabling your data to be restored, should it ever become lost or deleted. Our Online Back-up solution can ensure that your data is replicated in to the Cloud and available should you ever need to restore it.
Virtualise to the Cloud
With the necessity for many estate agents to work on the go, from remote locations and even host virtual viewings at properties, there becomes the requirement for a solution that enables employees to access their files, systems and information from anywhere. They need to work efficiently wherever they are - be that in or out of the office.
Looking to the Cloud and a solution such as Unified Communications could be the answer to this remote working issue, providing employees the ability to remain in contact with their colleagues at all time via video sharing or IM, meaning they can continue working in an effective manner and progress sales to completion.
