Which mobility solutions for real estate professionals?

For several years now, IT mobility has been a key issue for real estate professionals. Agents are the first to be concerned. Constantly in the field, they need suitable equipment to maximise their results and enjoy good working conditions. On the other hand, since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, teleworking has become a necessity and has also necessitated a rethinking of the sector’s equipment and processes.

From the start of the pandemic in March 2020, agencies have had to adapt to the new constraints, not without difficulty. Indeed, teleworking has been difficult to integrate and few agencies have implemented it. This is due to the particularities of the sector. Many processes cannot be replaced by email, instant messaging and virtual visits. Prospecting in the field is still necessary and the signing and handing over of keys are essential highlights. Moreover, in this sector, the social link is an important generator of trust, which is essential for selling.

However, innovative solutions are available to allow the activity to continue in a qualitative and secure manner. The human-sized videoconference solutions “la Vitre” are one of them.

On the other hand, the permanent mobility of real estate agents going to appointments for prospecting, visits or estimates leaves them little time in the agency. Thus, they need access to the company’s data wherever they are and at any time. It is essential that they have the capacity to respond fully to their clients at all times.

To do this, it is necessary to adapt the computer equipment, here are some examples:

  • Smartphone
  • Tablet: Windows Surface or Ipad. The quality of the screen will allow a perfect rendering of documents to be presented to clients. In addition, it must take professional quality photos to accompany them during estimates and inventories.
  • Electronic signature tablet: essential for the dematerialisation of contract signatures.
  • Ultraportable PC: light and compact, it allows the agent to work anywhere and offers comfort and performance.

Finally, the right hardware coupled with a network, the right applications and software will give the agent all the keys to increase his results.
