Create the ultimate online property listing with Flex and the OMS

Creating high quality online property listings for your sellers is key in generating buyer leads, but is also a great marketing tool for people interested to list with you. Why create average listings when you can create state of the art property listings with the OMS and Flex.

Here is a great example where some of the key features of the OMS and Flex were used, including:
  • Over 50 photos (The OMS and Flex allows unlimited photos) with descriptions for each photo;
  • Interactive map with integrated driving directions (simply insert your address for directions);
  • Google Streetview split view with map;
  • Virtual tour or Youtube video integration (Entegral's 360 virtual tours are free in the OMS);
  • Teams (you can load listings as teams in the OMS);
  • Additional features (you can create additional fields in the OMS);
  • Social media links (setup individual social media links including skype button for agents);
  • EAAB PrivySeal integration that is easy to setup at no additional cost;

There are also great time saving features built into the OMS, like capturing a listing once, and have it published on your Flex website and all the leading property portals.

Configure social media links including PrivySeal in the OMS

You can now configure various online profiles for agents in the OMS, including Facebook, Twitter and the South African EAAB PrivySeal link. See the OMS online help for more info on the social link configuration.

The social links will be integrated with Flex office and personal websites by default this week.

How to capture your PrivySeal certificate information
The EAAB of South Africa implemented the PrivySeal consumer protection initiative. The OMS now accepts capturing agent PrivySeal information, which can be displayed on Flex powered real estate websites. We will also make the codes available to any external syndication portal that support this.

To add PrivySeal to your profile first get your PrivySeal link, e.g.:
Go to your OMS profile.
Select PrivySeal from your online profiles, and paste the link in.

Now click on 'update'. Your username will be extracted. You can test your PrivySeal link by clicking on the 'test' link.

If all is OK press save.
