Using the right technology is vital when showcasing properties for sale, communicating with purchasers and other vendors or efficiently processing administration work – it’s for this reason why getting the right IT support for estate agents is so important.
There’s no use having an impressive portfolio of properties coming in, only for the computer system to slow you down every step of the way. Or worse, to fail to portray them in the best possible light because they keep crashing. This could end up putting off customers and mean they go to an estate agent which wows them with their efficiency and displays their properties for sale in a more professional way.
Any estate agent knows that one of the greatest ways to sell a property is by getting it online and having it seen in all the right places. This also means that all company data is secure and not being passed to competitors or being lost due to a faulty set-up. So, when your IT system isn’t set up correctly or fails you this can mean lost information or sales opportunities.
What does IT support for estate agents involve?
IT support for estate agents can include the following services and more:
- Protection against cyber attacks which can cause irreversible damage to a business.
- Improvements to communication systems between team members and customers.
- Cloud IT solutions which give advanced backup in the event of an IT failure.
- Professional and secure data storage and management.
- Fast and professional analysis of problems and the provision of effective solutions to them.
Switching to an improved service doesn’t need to be difficult, and in fact, in most cases can all be done remotely without losing any data.
The benefits of IT support for estate agents
When you invest in the right kind of IT support for estate agents, in addition to having all the high levels of support mentioned above, you can also keep up to date with the latest software advancements which will make working life easier.
For example, there’s Microsoft’s recent rebranding of Office 365 to consider. The launch of the new Microsoft 365 comes with a range of new apps and services which help maximise the productivity and online safety of small to medium sized businesses, such as local estate agents.
Take Microsoft 365 Business Voice, for example. This lets estate agents stay connected with customers via a single phone number across their computer, mobile device, and desk phone, which means that, even when out on viewings, they’re always easily available to contact.
Microsoft 365 also gives teams of estate agents the chance to meet and have a virtual chat, in a completely safe and secure environment, no matter where they are. This is done through the new Microsoft Teams app which our Better IT experts can get your team trained up in, in no time at all.
Advanced features of M365 mean an even greater level of confidence that your business is protected against cyber attacks and sensitive information is safe. This can help your business move forward, be productive and well protected. Our experts can help and advise you on all aspects of this.
