New currency converter for Flex websites

Image
Newer generation Flex websites (launched 2018 onwards) now have the option of showing a dynamic currency converter on listing prices, similiar to this (clients can simply click on the price dropdown to reveal):   It converts to 3 popular currencies: United States Dollars, British Pounds and Euro. The rates are updated daily.  New Flex websites launched from 1 July 2021 onwards will feature this by default, while current websites can have this enabled at a once off fee of R250 ex VAT.

South Africa's POPIA compliance and your Flex real estate website

Image
With South Africa's  Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) taking effect on 1 July, you need to ensure that your business complies with all the relevant local laws. As a service provider, Entegral has taken steps to ensure websites provide compliance and will continue to roll out enhancements where required, to enable you to be fully compliant.  Every business collects and processes client data in various ways and it can differ dramatically between companies. Since Flex is one of the most customisable real estate platforms out there, many clients have for instance implemented custom forms, implemented credit card payment gateways , or have done custom CRM and other chat integrations that can collect client and process information. Many Flex websites are also powered by different CRM systems, and not only by Entegral's Base CRM . It would therefore be foolish to deploy a generic POPI compliance solution for all our clients and assume that it will work for everyone. Wi

Still using the OMS? It is time to upgrade to Base

Image
Our long-serving OMS system was one of the first of its kind online management systems and has served South African and Namibian real estate agents well for more than 15 years since its launch in 2005. Technology has however moved on, and we need to say goodbye. In 2018, we launched the next generation OMS in the form of our  Base  CRM which not only offers everything an agent needs to run their office wherever they are, it is also a responsive design which means you are no longer bound to a desktop or laptop as it will work seamlessly from your phone or tablet. We have had a great response to Base, with many agents making the switch and if you haven't done so, now is the time to take a step into the future of real estate management tools.  Support on the OMS won't end abruptly, as we will continue to give support until the end of July 2022. Over the next 12 months, we we need to move any remaining OMS clients over to Base, so it's best not to leave your move until the las

Improved Base automatic lead synchronisation launched

Image
We've launched an improved automatic lead synchronisation for Base users. Once configured, this feature allows you to automatically import new property leads from all the popular property portals into your Base inbox. From here you can easily convert those leads into contacts and keep a detailed history of all your leads per portal and property. This feature works by securely scanning your email account for new leads and auto-extracting all info, linking the lead to the property and even allows you to send those lead to external systems via our Zapier interface . Office administrators/owners can then also get a consolidated view of incoming leads under the contacts / leads section. More reliable and accurate lead extraction We've reworked the functionality to provide more reliable and accurate lead extraction, taking care to extract the correct contact info and message from your leads. New leads are imported within 2 minutes of arrival into Base. If all goes well we will red
