How we enable property brands to take on tomorrow.
Products & services for connected living
The property market is being shaken to its foundations. Homes, interiors and utilities are all becoming connectible. As a result customers' expectations of the intelligence of their homes, and associated services, is growing exponentially.
Our team of strategic consultants are working with brands in all these areas to define innovative services that make the most of this shift to smart living. We are already working with brands like Spark, Tili, Cala and Shelter to enhance their connectivity and the value they offer. We look forward to doing the same for you.
Customer Relationship Management
Connecting with your customer-to-be with CRM
Lead acquisition in property is an expensive, time-consuming business. And yet, so many businesses squander the opportunity to really extract value from their prospects. By adopting a complete CRM strategy, your business can enrich your leads database with greater insight, automate the communication process and shorten the journey to sale.
We work with Stewart Milne, Cala Group and others on improving customer relationship management capabilities, bringing efficiency and enabling better, smarter sales teams.
Choosing a CMS that increases property sales
We are CMS agnostic and an Umbraco Gold Partner, Sitecore Silver, EpiServer Platinum and Sitefinity Partner, as well as extensive experience in WordPress and Drupal. We work with a diverse range of property brands to implement CMS’ for their digital experiences with a single goal - increase property sales. The CMS platforms we use vary depending on the property brand and their in-house skill set.
Successful projects include using Umbraco to create a property management system for ASPC.co.uk, migrating CALA Homes from Sitecore to Umbraco, Tridion for Emaar in Dubai and ProcessWire for Gleeson homes. We can advise and implement the CMS that is appropriate for your brand.
Creative & UX Design
Delivering the convenience property customers expect
As the property industry quickly becomes more digital and more joined-up, new services are appearing every day. For these innovations to succeed, they must add value to people's lives.
Our UX experts design innovative, engaging and vital services that attract and retain customers for many businesses across the property sector - Cala, Shelter, Tili and Emaar, to name a few. Our team will work with you to create digital experiences that truly make a difference to your brand and your customers' lives.
