Base password strength meter & Sync API update

Password strength meter in Base
A new password strength meter in Base CRM provides a visual indication of how strong your Base password is. You need minimum 'strong' status in order to update your profile.
We recommend a 'very strong' status by including capital, lower case, numeric and special characters.

Base new quick actions added
Under the 'new' menu dropdown, you can now choose from 'news' to add a new news article entry and 'activity' to record a new activity from any screen. This way you can for instance quickly schedule a meeting. If you have enabled our Google Apps integration, your calendar entry will sync with your Google calendar.

Sync API on show updates
The SYNC API now allows for multiple on show entries for the Property24 interface. This allows you to schedule multiple future on show dates.

Matterport 3D support to Property24

We now update the Matterport 3D tour to Property24 if supplied via OMS or Base:

If you have existing listings with Matterport 3D tours on them, simply resave.

Base : track qualified leads on listings and view listing enquiries by contact

Base CRM allows the automatic import of leads from various portals by synchronizing your mailbox. Leads will then import into your Base inbox. Here you can qualify and convert those leads to actual contacts or discard them:

When converting the lead to a contact the contact details are all automatically pre-populated in the fields (depending on what the portal sent), so you just have to categorize and tag the contact as a buyer, seller etc. (all these categories are configurable):

For buyers, you can further fine tune their requirements including price, area, beds, baths etc. through the qualify tab. This also provides a way of finding matching buyers when listing a new home.

Base will now link the original enquiry on the contact through the diary tab, on the day the enquiry was made. It will also link it to the listing that was enquired on:

At the same time, if you open the listing diary view, you will also notice it saved the original enquiry with the converted contact:

This allows y…

Base & OMS PDF Brochure size reduction

Custom PDF brochures in Base & OMS as well as generic property brochures in Base are now up to 3 times smaller with compression algorithms applied to them. A typical brochure of 2.6 MB is reduced to about 0.8 MB in the process.

New Sole Mandate Banners for Flex Websites

We've added Sole Mandate Banners to our first generation Flex Websites - this update ensures that if you have selected sole mandate on your OMS or your Base dashboard when uploading a new listing it will display accordingly on your Flex website as well.

This banner will not only appear on the search results pages of your website but also on the details page of a listing with a sole mandate.

How does it work?

(The entry will then appear on the diary of the contact or listing too). In case of the valuation, you can link the listing (capture as a valuation) and the seller. Set the time and press save.The c…

Base new commercial & rental fields launched

We've introduced the following new fields on residential and commercial rentals in Base CRM:

• Lease escalation %
• Lease period
• Deposit requirements

We've split the contract dates and commission into 2 tabs and introduced a 3rd new tab 'itemized cost'. This tab provides a configurable set of cost rows that will be useful to commercial leases and sales. Cost items you want to specify is added from the dropdown and then saved as part of your mandate. This way only the required fields are shown and saved:

On the features tab we've also introduced new fields including:

 • Coverage
 • Floor Area Ratio (FAR)
 • Grade/Rating

The grade/rating have some default values but will soon be configurable via the Base / Setup / Customize function.

We value your feedback: if you deal in commercial property, drop us an email on to let us know how we can further tweak this.
