Updates 24 Feb 2014: expired listings search & agent transfers

Searching for expired rental listings in the OMS advanced search We corrected a problem where not all rental expired listings showed in the search results for the advanced search in the OMS: Technical: the problem was caused by a recent update to the OMS advanced search functionality and only applicable to rental listings that expired. The OMS allows you to save all your historic data including rented, expired, inactive and sold property listing stock. This allows you to look-up the property at a later stage and re-enable it to for sale, rental or auction status.

Online marketing update for organisation administrators

User with organisation administrator access (head office for a group of offices) will now be able to see the correct statuses and external listing reference numbers if they open any of their group’s office listings: The OMS makes it easy to manage data across an organisation with multiple offices. Organisation admin users can create offices, modify agents and pull various reports. They also get access to listing and portal syndication data as shown above. Organisation admin users can manage a central document library for all offices and control lead source lists that all agents can use.

Manage companies in the OMS

You can now access a company section in the OMS under Contacts / View Companies. Here you can capture companies like bond originators, attorneys and suppliers for your office. You can manage your own list of companies, share with the office or your group of offices depending on your OMS access level. This allows groups to for instance set up a list of shared attorney contacts that everyone can access and use. Companies (including banks, attorneys, bond originators and external agencies) will be used in the new sales tracking functionality.
