Unlock the power of the cloud for your documents

imageImagine a secure, central storage area for your personal files and a central, shared office storage area where all agents can access those files from anywhere, anytime -all through the industry leading OMS.

This is another industry first feature that will soon launch in the OMS and is undergoing testing before the launch in the next few weeks.

Although a similar feature is currently available for national groups the new feature will be launched on an office and personal user level, and introduces several new ground-breaking features.

It will provide an industry best cloud storage area designed for mission critical and primary data storage. All files uploaded will automatically be made redundant by copying your files across multiple devices and data centres, without you having to worry about anything! All files is furthermore encrypted providing a highly secure environment for all your office files.

Earlier this year Entegral was the first (and still is the only) service provider to launch a full cloud computing platform for real estate agents, allowing better uptime, lower cost, better performance, better security and a range of powerful new features.

MyProperty Location, On Show, Price Reduced, Virtual tour icons

If you haven’t noticed it yet, there are new property search results on MyProperty South Africa. This includes:

- a location marker to show properties that have been geo-coded in the OMS with the ‘show on map’ option selected.

- a priced reduced banner to show properties where the price was reduced (this is automatically tracked).

- a on show icon if the property was marked for on show

- a virtual tour icon for virtual tours done using the free and unlimited virtual tour function in the OMS.

We are seeing a trend where these properties are getting more hits compared to properties with none of these options on. In the near future these properties will also get higher ranking in the search results.
