Why Your Real Estate Company Needs IT Services

Just like most businesses, there is no one-size-fits-all answer to the IT support that your company will need. However, there are some industries like real estate with a competitive and fast-paced market, and there’s no room for downtime or lost documents.

Technology has helped us change the way we do business, and it allows our customers and clients to get so much more information at speed.

And while much of the sale of a home is going to be down to how your real estate agents are closing deals, all of those opening moments tend to happen via computer or mobile.

So when it comes to having the right IT services here or a few reasons that your real estate company needs them.

Monitoring

Let’s say, for example, you have created a small website that can offer bookings for viewings; within that form, potential customers will input in some other personal details like their name and address. Now imagine that your website was hacked, and the hacker took all of the details from your database.

When it comes to avoiding serious security breaches, one of the most important things you could do is have 24/7 monitoring. 24/7 monitoring will mean that anything that looks suspicious will be handled quickly and likely having the right security in place in the first place.

Multiple branches

If your real estate agency has more than one branch, the chances are there’s going to be multiple types of communication going between them. Not only that, but if you have different estate agents out at all times, they’re going to need to access the documents stored and sometimes information.

The right IT support can create a platform where all branches and real estate agents can communicate quickly and effectively. Accessing information they need at speed and presenting it to the clients in front of them.

Documents

A smaller realtor might decide to store their more sensitive files on something like Google Drive or Dropbox. And while these do offer a whole range of security, if for whatever reason your email address and password were hacked, these are no longer private and can be accessed by the hacker.

Real estate agents will also need to maintain an import store and edit details within these documents. Some of these details could be financial records or other private information. If these are not stored in a very safe place digitally, they are at risk.

Downtime

Imagine you have just managed to secure several houses for sale, and they have been uploaded to your website. You are expecting plenty of interest in them. However, once they are live your website goes down and you aren’t sure how to get it back up.

The right IT support will make sure that this issue is very short-lived.

Don’t time it can be disastrous for your company, specifically in something as competitive as real estate.

Technology is changing everything we do, and it can be exciting too. But it is important that if you are embracing new technology, you are protecting it too. Check out this very cool use of tech: Artificial Intelligence Estate Agent | estateagentnetworking.co.uk
