Top Producer 8i

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty / Atlanta - Sugarloaf

I thought I would share some info on the new version of Top Producer that is coming to the market.  It's version 8i and I sat through a demo of the product at the Keller Williams Family Reunion.

First, it sounds like this upgrade will be available without charge to users of version 7i, so that's a good thing.

I haven't been the biggest advocate of Top Producer because it just isn't that user friendly, so I was happy to see that 8i has been modified to make it a lot more user friendly.  The first thing they mentioned was the elimination of the timed login bar that comes up as the program is loading...great!!  They also mentioned that the incompatibilties with certain javascript has been corrected so the program will run on any computer. 

The biggest difference that I noticed was the change in user screens.  Everything appears to be a lot more integrated.  By that I mean, programs and functions are grouped for ease of use.  I really came away thinking that this new version will make my life a lot easier.

We were told that the product is being rolled out over the next few months to stagger the implementation.  I'm excited about this upgrade and hope it makes a believer out of me.

Thanks for the update, Patti!  Do you know if we'll just get an email or something to switch to the new version?

Patti,

I've been a TP user since version 5, and reluctantly upgraded to 7i last year.  I agree with your assessment of 7i being not user friendly.  It sounds like 8i will be a big improvement.  Thanks for the info!

We just started using 8i yesterday and are really pleased with the updates - especially on the marketing side.  There are a few short comings which we reported today such as not being able to pull up my call for the day and just go through the contacts continuiously.  There is also a problem with not being able to have more than one email address accessable (since we use Outlook connector) to email to.

 We too have been really heavy users of TP for many years.  All I can say it that it is worth it's weight in gold IF you have a large database of clients/prospects/past customers that you want to be able to stay in touch with!  I'd be lost without it!

Thanks, Patti :-)

Pamela, if you check back in....can you give us a quick mention of any more new features you've seen?  Sorry - I'm not being very patient, am I? ;-)

I just heard the comment from my team mate, "Top Producer is just not user friendly!" 

I typed that into Google to see what would pop up and Patti, your blog came up! 

Unfortunately, this lady was using 8i.....................................................................................................................

Well we've been on TP 8i for over a year now and I wouldn't give it up!  It's been a real power horse for us.  The issues we had at the beginning have for the most part been settled.  They still haven't done the complete move from 7i to 8i and think that some of the features will enhance once they do.

I have just started with 8i and the capture and ease of categorizing potential clients is great. The email library aids my responses in a big way. Mass email drip campaigns for agents and clients gets phenominal results. I am doing a test on a Get email campaign for Home Values that you can direct to Market Snapshot which I would like your help on. It will be a Best Practices Facebook Twitter . Check out the Video www.vimeo.com/4096811 and let me know if you are interested in doing a test of your market.
