Four ways to separate property software companies
With so many property software companies to choose from, how can you be sure that you’re making the right decision when investing in a platform?
1. Be sure to book a demo
Before you invest in any new software, it’s important to establish that both the usability and functionality work for you.
Most property software companies developing solutions for estate agents will offer a demo, whether that is in person (within COVID-19 restrictions) or a virtual demo.
This is your opportunity to try the software, see the user interface and get team members involved.
You can book a free, no obligation demo with Alto any time, and it’s also the perfect point at which to ask questions to our specialist team.
2. Ask the right questions
Which leads us nicely onto point two. We welcome questions – in fact, we positively encourage them.
Whether you are investing in property software for the first time, or looking for an enhanced solution that better suits your individual needs, we understand that it can be a daunting decision. And we’re here to help from the very first contact.
With Alto, if you choose to sign up after the demo, we’ll assign a project manager to lead your implementation.
This individual will be on hand to support you through the entire process, with a dedicated training and support team also there to answer any questions you might have.
3. Seek a proven pedigree
We believe it’s vitally important that property software companies have the experience to back up their knowledge and innovation.
We bring together over 30 years of industry experience into one powerful tool, combining a proud history in the property industry with a focus on innovation and technical excellence.
Our predecessors include trusted industry brands Vebra and CfP and we’re now part of the Zoopla family of brands, which means you’ll get all the exceptional service and innovation you’d expect from a market leader.
4. Look for added value
Not all property software is the same. Some will offer the basic fundamentals of managing sales and lettings, while others may provide property management functionality too, supporting lettings teams in managing maintenance more effectively.
The trick is to look for solutions that go even further, with enhanced features like Alto’s property marketing support,
which includes a built-in design tool, automated emails and brochure customisation.
