Our Software and Technology use in Real Estate – Agent Challenges paper, researched in conjunction with Property Week, highlights the emphasis managing agents are now placing on the software solutions they use. Specifically, around four in five say they intend to make a significant investment in software or technology in the next five years.
It seems, these days, there is a piece of software for almost every business task but, when it comes to Block Management, the way forward is not always clear…
It is often the case that the knowledge of the individual manager is supplemented by the use of basic, stand-alone software or even spreadsheets – coupled to manual methods of data entry and collation, diary management, journals and correspondence. There can be no doubting that these methods work to some extent – many Property Managers would simply not exist if they didn’t.
The purpose of this white paper was to understand how those who work within the property industry regard technology, and whether cultural as well as IT changes may be necessary to meet the expectations of future generations. This survey comprised 25 questions, and was directed at the entire Property Week readership.
