Choosing the Best Software for Your Business

We all know how great it is to find a system that really works – whether it’s your fitness routine, a task app on your smartphone or a filing system for important documents. When something works well and doesn’t take much time, you’ve hit upon a productivity sweet spot.

Are you searching for that productive sweet spot in your business as an agent? Let’s take a look at how you can find your productivity pain points and how you can use industry-specific software to dial in your business.

 

Assess your needs

To start, assess where you could use help improving your systems. What do you consider your interests (strengths) and what do you consider your chores (weaknesses)?

You probably know where your strengths lie – these are the parts of your business you love – and hopefully you’re already leveraging them to drive your business.

That leaves the items you consider a chore ­– and probably get left for last – which may be holding you back from greater successes.

For many agents, it’s the tedious paperwork, tracking transactions and lead generation that bogs them down. These are ideal places to implement some automatic systems to make life easier.

 

Enter the software solution

Fortunately, this is where software solutions come to the rescue.

Industry-specific software can help you handle task management, client communication, marketing your listings, and finding new prospective clients.

When shopping around you’ll want to look at all that a program has to offer. Do they bundle services (CRM, valuations, transaction management), or will you have to add other programs to meet your needs? Consider finding a program that helps you in at least several areas to save yourself from constantly copying data from one program to another.

Make note of how the software is deployed. Is this something loaded onto your server or stored on the cloud? As you travel to showings and listing appointments it’s super helpful to be able to access your programs from anywhere. Find a program that is also phone-friendly to make working on the move a breeze.

Look at how and where the program allows you to use your branding. Do they use your name or theirs in their output? A great program should work on behalf of you; using your name, photo and logo in any communication output.

Simplicity is a big factor in your decision, too. Why spend money on software that ends up being avoided by you or your staff because it’s too difficult to adopt?

Granted, there can be a lot to learn when adopting a new software system. You can maximize its potential (and yours!) with training programs to help you to make the most of these dynamic tools. Be sure to see what kind of training and continued support is offered with the software you purchase. You’ll get the best ROI from your software when you’re fully trained.

Once you’re up and running with your new software systems, you’re likely to never look back. You’ll be too busy celebrating your successes!

One thing for certain, whatever you use, it has to keep up and innovate to keep you on top of all the details of a day to day real estate operation.

I find the biggest issue always was using it is different to a demo. We need time to assess if it's right for us. Hence I just developed my own for my needs.
