The original hosted site, created in 2000 has undergone three major rewrites to add greater functionality. It now provides a scaleable solution with automated synchronisation with Rightmove, Globrix, FindaProperty, PrimeLocation and CountryLife.
The automated marketing workflow allows for the easy launch or re-launch of properties onto the market, emailing property details that match buyer requirements. With a current registered base of over 7,000 applicants, a typical property will generate some 1,200 emails. With a response rate of over 15 per cent, these emails drive traffic to the website.
The automated offer workflow tracks a purchase through all of its various stages and provides complete commission analysis for the negotiators.Locato
Locato is a Residential Lettings Agency using the newly completed ASP.NET version of the hosted service.
Built in modular format using the DotNetNuke Content Management System and Application Framework, the agency software includes models for Property Description, Property Information, Image Gallery, Property Directory, Property Search, Registration, Viewings, Marketing Appraisals, Appointments, Marketing Plans, Applicant Portfolios, Offers, Advertising, Inventory and Tenancy.
A unique feature is that every property has its own dedicated, database driven, web-site which allows owners, tenants and third-party suppliers to log in to the properties where they have been granted access.Personal Property Portals
Using a subset of the modules available in the agency system, Personal Property Portals is aimed at Landlords who want to manage their own properties. Again, each property has it's own website and the Landlord is able to rebrand the site or use their own domain name.
The Tenancy module holds details of the tenants, the tenancy agreement, special conditions and rental payment schedule. The tenant is able to log-in to view their particular tenancy details, amend contact details, report problems etc.
The easy to use Inventory system allows for all of the contents to be listed and the condition assessed each time a tenancy changes.
