Workflow Solutions in Real Estate Mean Higher Profits

If you are in the Real Estate industry, you know how frustrating it can be to balance rental enquiries, maintenance orders and property inspections with the time needed to manage relationships with your clients.

In order to improve efficiency and reduce wasted time in your Real Estate agency, you need to streamline your business processes, and for this you will require an effective workflow solution.

Deploying a web-based workflow in your Real Estate agency means:

  • You are able to streamline your operations;
  • It’s easy to identify bottlenecks;
  • You can find ways to save time and money;
  • You are able to harness sales opportunities;
  • It’s easy to control your property management processes;
  • Your customer service improves;
  • Your quality of work improves.

Setting task statuses are one of the most popular functions of web-based workflow software in your Real Estate office. Task statuses can be as simple as Draft, In Progress, Created, Completed and Cancelled. Premium workflow software allows you to customize task statuses according to your specific needs. Task statuses allow approved members of your organisation to view each process and its status at any stage.

Realtors who embrace online workflow software find that they have more time to devote to improved customer service, which improves their bottom-line. Employees communicate easily with each other and can provide consistent and current information to clients at all times.

Kontinuum online workflow software provides massive benefits when used by Real Estate agencies. See our website and discover ways to improve processes that save you time and money.

New Year Processes

Improve Efficiency in 2010

Oscar Wilde wrote: A New Year’s resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other.

The origin of New Year’s resolutions dates back as far as the early Babylonians. They believed that a person’s actions on the first day of the New Year affected what they would do throughout the year.

Of the 45 percent of the population that make New Year’s resolutions, a whopping 75 percent of these are never fulfilled. If your New Year’s resolution is to improve your processes and become more efficient – don’t become one of the statistics! Get some help and just do it!

Web and Flo provide BPM solutions for businesses of all sizes. Our workflow management software, Kontinuum, can be easily customised to reflect your own branding.

Leadership and Workflow Management

Workflow Management and Leadership

Workflow Management and Leadership

Managing processes while leading people is a consistent challenge. Although you cannot automate the human side of leadership, you can automate your processes.

Efficient processes are  the key to delivering consistent results. Good processes ensure better customer service, higher financial returns and successful leadership.

Figure out what your ultimate end result should be.

Although this may seem obvious, a detailed focus on the process often takes over. Keep your eye on the goal.

Break it down

If things aren’t working, or workflows are interrupted, an in-depth analysis will show that this is often because some of the smaller stages or goals are missing or incomplete. Define all goals leading to your desired outcome.

Break down your workflow

Who does what? When do they do it? What order do they do it in? Break down the goals into smaller stages. Work out  how much each step costs and how long it takes.

Watch it

Put steps in place to find bottlenecks before they become a problem. Automating your processes will make your life easier and leave you free to continue with the most important part of your job – leading your team!

Improve your workflow management and improve your leadership capabilities by using workflow software. An online workflow solution means that you can analyse processes in real time and immediately fix issues, before they turn into a negative experience for your staff and customers.

We don’t need workflow – or do we?

August 17, 2009

Workflow solutions can save your organization time and money. Consider that for every form or document generated in an organization, the following occurs:

  • 19 copies are made
  • 1 out of 20 are lost
  • 150 hours per year are spent looking for incorrectly filed papers
  • 25 hours are spent recreating documents

However, even when armed with the above knowledge, some businesses remain reluctant when it comes to change. Aiim spoke to executives from top organizations and discovered a variety of reasons why they are resistant to adopting workflow management systems.

Have a look at the Top 10 Excuses given by Executives for not Considering Workflow Management Systems:

  1. We usually can find the information we need when a customer calls. Sometimes it takes a while, but once we send out an email to all staff asking for the information, it usually shows up after a bit.
  2. No one will ever sue us. Read more >>
