How's business process automation in Real Estate?
According to a survey, real estate professionals realize local MLS websites/apps, lockbox/smart key devices, and social media platforms as some of the most valuable tech tools excluding email and cell phones. For approximately 50% of real estate companies, business automation has been identified as one of the biggest challenges they face.
However, in 2021 many real estate companies haven’t yet elected to go into business process automation. Even so, purchasing an automation tool wouldn’t be enough for a real estate broker or agent with all their specific requirements and operations. In the meantime, customization of such tools could be extremely resource-intensive and time-consuming. So what exactly is the solution?
Despite the fact that the market already has existing ready-made solutions, many brokers and agents are considering the option of developing custom solutions. Bespoke brokerage software would be a novel approach for real estate professionals seeking a single platform able to automate and fulfill all their daily operations in one place, from transaction management to document scanning and much more.
In this blog post, we’ll go through some of the primary features that your brokerage management solution should have.
