Next week is Dallas Startup Week along with RealTech Dallas powered by Ascendix Technologies. RealTech Dallas kicks off on March 2, 2015 at Common Desk which begins the real estate track for Dallas Startup Week. This five-day event focuses on the startup culture that is growing at breakneck speed in a city that Forbes notes is poised to be the next Silicon Valley. RealTech Dallas combines the entrepreneurial spirit of startups with technology and real estate.
The Ascendix Blog
The good folks at Real Estate Tech News posted a review of some of Ascendix’s products yesterday on their website. They started by saying “Ascendix Technologies is a legacy provider piloting a rocket ship to success to those in the field of commercial real estate.” We agree!
On January 29th, Ascendix gave an extensive overview of the SmartClient which focuses on the biggest complaint between IT, management and brokers when it comes to Commercial Real Estate solutions.
How do we get a CRM solution that everyone will use? The truth is one solution will never fit everyone’s needs…especially in mid-size to large firms. And, by using the tools of today and the unique knowledge base of our past we realized that we had to create the SmartClient to bridge the gap that exists today.
We recently had a call with a prospect that made me think of the saying “too many cooks spoil the broth.” In an effort to save either time or money brokerages will go with the easiest solutions that don’t require professional services. Or they will try to use a hodgepodge of tools or applications promoted by experts who haven’t seen all the options. And while the newness and excitement of these options make it seem like it will work, the shine wears off quickly when you find out that you are again creating islands of information and then have to spend money on professional services to solve for fragmented data.
xRE SmartClient is an overlay that makes adding, editing or references your CRM data a streamlined experience.
AscendixRE is the only CRM for CRE solution provider that has this option with the purpose for increasing user experience and user adoption.
Having been associated with the CRM initiative at JLL for over 5 years, it is exciting to see this project expand across new lines of business and international borders which in turn increases the value proposition of this investment to JLL’s global operations. When we first installed AscendixRE as an on-premise solution for JLL, we didn’t fully appreciate the integral role our product was going to have in centralizing their property data as a repository for employees across the globe.
This past summer we announced xRE SmartClient. SmartClient provides an optional interface focused on how brokers want to work with their data. The focus of this option is speed, streamline and search. And no matter what device you use, you can access the SmartClient on your smartphone, tablet or computer of choice.
SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization, but as I stated in last weeks post, SEO is now everyone’s job. Why? Because it really does Serve Everyone with Opportunities. It works for lead generation, increases the visibility of marketing initiatives, and gives sales another tool to assist in promoting products and services to get leads converted faster. The following stats were shared at last weeks Dallas Digital Summit:
