How to drive efficiencies with your letting agent software
In any industry, improving the efficiency of processes can be the key to unlocking more revenue.
For letting agents, juggling the challenges of new properties, tenancy renewals, property maintenance and more, it’s the key to running a successful operation.
Efficiency is the foundation of success in business. If you can complete processes more quickly, without compromising on quality, then everybody benefits. Above all, you get onto your next job quicker.
You can rent out properties, complete referrals, hand over keys and receive rents more quickly. That’s exactly why we place efficiency at the core of our letting agent software.
Current activity levels in the lettings market
You could say that efficiency has never been more important. High demand continues to dominate the property news agenda, across sales and lettings markets.
Zoopla’s most recent Rental Market Report shows that rental growth is at the highest level in 13 years. And as the resumption of ‘normal life’ continues to fuel rental demand, the availability of properties to let is 43% below the five-year average.
This inevitably increases the pressure on agents to get more properties listed. And, Alto’s letting agent software can help free up the time to target landlords and win new instructions.
Improving the speed of processes with letting agent software
By automating everyday processes including diary management, property listings, producing brochures and much more, Alto can boost productivity and give valuable time back to staff.
One customer to benefit is Kings Hill Properties (KHP), a sales and letting agent based in Kent. KHP’s previous software only allowed staff to upload listings to portal sites once a day and took a frustrating amount of time to perform simple tasks like uploading photos.
It meant the team was spending up to ten hours a week simply creating brochures.
With Alto this process takes minutes and staff can benefit from a live feed which uploads properties to portals almost instantly. It’s clear to see the positive impact on productivity. Be Chapman from KHP said:
“It’s very hard to quantify time saving, but it is hours per week. More than time saving, it has improved our professionalism and teamwork as branches can seamlessly work together.”
