Cloud computing systems – benefits to agents
Included below is a short video explaining what the term ‘cloud computing system’ means is and and how it can help your business. A great quote from the video which sums up the term cloud computing is below:
‘A simple and more efficient way of buying and using technology‘. I will comment below on how it can specifically help your agency.
So in short, the benefits include:
- cutting out a lot of the work previously done in securing software systems for your business like the servers
- backing up data
- licences being paid up front and its limitations.
Through the use of an in-house cloud based system an agency can manage all its clients information in one easy to access location- from tenant references to landlord accounts and maintenance invoices you only need a wifi connection and your login! Great right?
Services are delivered via the internet whether its accounts software or a customer relationship management system or an overall enterprise software package. A letting agent can also pick and choose to what suits them with most SAAS (software as a service) providers will only charge you for a package that suits you and on a monthly subscription basis.
The speed at which you can operate your day to day running of the agency will drastically increase as you begin to automate re-occurring services or move them to the cloud rather than hard data. That’s it in a nutshell, the ability to transform your agency!
