As we have a need to fit more into each day, technology can help make you more efficient and productive. But what about client relationships? This is also an important part of growing your business. 

So, where do you start in preparing for a future-ready business? Here are three tips. 

1. Lean on your technology provider to become more efficient

Working smarter and using tools that will help your business, enables you to use your time more efficiently so you can take on more work. Technology can help you streamline the mundane tasks, so that you have more time for yourself and for your clients.

PlanIT is an electronic solution that simplifies complexities and streamlines the handling of multi-lot and off-the-plan developments. The PlanIT platform allows our clients to create a master contract, which will then generate individual contracts for each lot within a subdivision. These individual contracts are easily edited from a master or lot level. When it is time for signing, contracts can be executed electronically as an e-contract from anywhere or simply printed in hard copy.

Since its introduction in March 2017, more than 80 law firms have adopted PlanIT and over 500 projects have been created containing over 25,000 lots. This strong demand has seen 250 real estate agents’ access PlanIT via the agent portal, with over 10,000 contracts exchanged electronically. 150 developers now have access to view project details and run daily reports.

PlanIT has been developed with the understanding that your clients are always on the go and property can be sold anywhere, at any time. The service facilitates on-site support for signing at launch days and open days as we understand how important it is to keep up with the 24/7 demands of clients. 

2. Develop stronger client relationships

Keeping up with client demand is just one way to strengthen your relationships with your clients. Remember that happy clients also mean good word-of-mouth, and good word-of-mouth can generate referral business. Strong client relationships can be built in many ways; from face to face meetings, to social media interaction, and much more. Think about ways that mean you need to spend less time on running the day to day elements of your business. If you are spending less time in the day to day running of your business, then you can spend more time on developing your business. Winning new clients and developing strong relationships with your current clients is key for any business to stay profitable. Working smarter ensures you have the time to focus on growing your firm and solidifying its future. 

3. Educate yourself and upskill your colleagues

It is crucial for real estate agents to stay up to date on the market around them and new techniques that they can use for selling. Everyone feels time poor, meaning it can be hard to justify time out of the office. Yet, collaborating with colleagues and getting out of the office into a new environment, gives your mind the space to become more creative. When you bring inspiration and new ways of doing tasks back to your workplace, you can inspire others and push yourself and your business further. Professional development allows you to make a more meaningful contribution to your team. Furthermore, professional development opens you up to new experiences, new skill areas and new possibilities to expand your business. With up to date knowledge you can help your clients and deliver with confidence.

In preparing for a future-ready business, technology and education are enablers to give you time to deepen your client relationships or create new ones to grow your business. Technology enables us to become more efficient and products like PlanIT help you navigate the technical aspects of our work, like managing off the plan developments. This allows your clients to have confidence in your skills and knowledge meaning they may continue to use your services.
