Enhancing the Real Estate Industry with Managed Cloud Solutions

Client Demands

With the rising demand for modern technology, customers today have higher expectations for realtors and the home-buying process. Clients are less interested in the old-school method of driving all over town and checking out properties. Instead, they prefer to research houses on their own. In 2013 the National Association of Realtors found that 96 percent of home buyers under the age of 44 spent three weeks searching for houses on the Internet on their own before contacting an agent. Real estate agents today need to be able to compete with the latest technology to meet their clients’ increasing demands.

Outdated Technology

The real estate industry is one of the last major industries to embrace new technology. Many real estate companies still rely heavily on paper documents and physical filing systems to keep track of inventory, clients, and leads. This system is at high risk for mistakes and overlooking critical information, potentially putting the success of the business at risk.

Sensitive Data

Real estate agents are required to gather and handle large quantities of PII (personally identifiable information) for clients’ real estate files. This highly sensitive information includes everything from driver’s license numbers to copies of checks. If any one or more of these files were lost, stolen, or accessed by an unauthorized individual, the consequences would be devastating to the real estate company’s reputation.

Marketing Efforts

Maintaining long-term relationships with potential and current clients through marketing is crucial for the success of your business. Unfortunately, the high costs associated with an in-house infrastructure result in less money to put towards marketing effort, making it a challenge for realtors to reach new customers.

Background

The cloud makes it easy to manage and share important company-wide information. Your employees can share calendars for meetings and events, delegate tasks, and manage clients and prospects in groups or individually. Agents will be able to access important documents anywhere on any device, ensuring they have access to the latest information and are always one step ahead in the office and out in the field.

CloudRealEstate makes it easy to keep clients’ personally identifiable information safe and secure at all times. You can access documents and share files between employees and clients securely from any device, further simplifying collaboration processes. Your clients can rest assured that their sensitive data will remain protected in the cloud.

With the cloud, your agents can spend less time running around the office and spend more one-on-one time with your clients. You will be able to better serve your clients’ needs by providing them with all the resources they need in one place. You will also be able to keep in touch with your current clients when you’re out and about, improving your chances of closing deals and getting referrals.

The cloud saves you money on costly in-house infrastructure, which means you will have more money to delegate towards improving your marketing resources and reaching new clients. The cloud allows you to streamline your marketing functions, saving you time while improving current and future client relations.

CloudRealEstate

Technology, especially cloud computing technology, provides huge opportunities for real estate organizations and should become a priority. 80% of the top real estate performers are using some form of cloud. Their use of the cloud can certainly improve though, while other organizations can follow their lead and realize the benefits of this technology.

Real estate is a relationship-driven sector, hence the emphasis on marketing, sales, client service, and collaboration. And when you think about it, real estate is a mobile business. After all, the majority of real estate business activities occur outside of a traditional office space.

Already, these characteristics make the sector a perfect fit for cloud computing solutions. Today, real estate organizations rely on email, file sharing, data storage, web hosting and mobile applications. These actions are best performed in the cloud.

See What our Customers are Saying

  • The amount of detail Gary provided me, as well as his responsiveness, was far beyond anything we had with our last vendor. The efficiency of your RFC process is a breath of fresh air! I’m also extremely satisfied with the RapidScale support team as a whole in regards to their proficiency, sense of urgency and etiquette.
  • I checked out some new partner resources – great stuff. We are already getting some good traction here. You guys really offer some great support!!
  • After being introduced to RapidScale at an event, I cannot help but be more impressed each time I hear more. I attended a webinar too, and once again, I’m really impressed with the opportunities. When I looked in your Partner Portal for the first time I thought, “Wow was I crazy for not looking sooner!” Great stuff in there.
  • Austin was amazing, professional, knowledgeable and personable – a true star!
  • I appreciate Steven’s quick response time and friendly demeanor when discussing problems. Great service and follow up!
  • RapidScale has been by far better than [our previous provider]. Our team is so much happier!
  • Our timing satisfaction rating reflects that these were carry-over issues from our prior vendor, but we’re pleased with RapidScale, and Steven’s thoroughness in reviewing and handling through to resolution.
  • I have been thrilled with RapidScale, I love the fact that when I call to initiate a ticket the technicians answer the phone. With [our last provider], we left a message then had to wait for a technician to call back. Sometimes this could take days!  Thank you, I am really happy with your services.
  • Sent a ticket for a server being unresponsive and received a call within a few minutes. Great response and resolution.
  • I believe the technician’s name was David. He was very pro-active on a Saturday. Got the issue resolved quickly. High marks.
  • Thanks for the quick response and resolution!  And I appreciate the fact that the tech gave information about what the problem was, how it was fixed, etc. That is always better than a simple “it’s now fixed”.
  • The level of service that we have received from RapidScale has been completely awesome.  All of our IT team and the owner has commented on it.  You guys are doing a fantastic job!
  • It’s been great so far having RapidScale host our email. We had it in-house before and that was just may more trouble than it was worth.
  • We’ve been extremely pleased with the service and customer support RapidScale has provided us. We don’t have a large IT staff and so the ability to lean on them has been perfect.
  • We’ve now transferred almost our entire company into RapidScale’s cloud. We started with just our email – we moved from in-house to hosted – then we moved the rest of our servers into the RapidScale cloud and now we’re in the final stages of implementing our virtual desktops! It’s really incredible to have everything running in the cloud and to have it all be so easy.
  • Working with RapidScale has been great so far. Our organization had a lot of our servers in-house and it was such a pain. It’s 1,000 times better now that we moved it all to the cloud.
  • RapidScale quite literally re-invented our IT situation. It was a complete mess before and we are absolutely THRILLED with everything that they’ve helped us to accomplish. Our network runs smoother and our virtual environments are the best addition we’ve made in a very long time.
  • The whole “cloud” thing was incredibly daunting when we first started exploring it for our business. We didn’t really understand the way everything worked and how it was going to help us get past some of the technology speed bumps we had. I worked with the RapidScale sales team and they were really very helpful and made me completely comfortable with the solution. We’ve been running on the CloudOffice interface for about 4 months now and are 100% satisfied and so happy we made the choice to move to RapidScale.
  • RapidScale helped to not only significantly lower our costs, but to help make our work environment more productive as well as more reliable and stable.
  • I LOVE THIS TECHNOLOGY.  I am so excited to be in this new phase within our organization. As a proud partner of RapidScale, this week alone I’ve dealt with 3 major consultations in Colorado with hundreds of employees each! This technology is truly exciting stuff. They make the process so easy, from training, to quoting, to installation! I LOVE HOW EASY THAT WAS. Amazing. You all ROCK!
