You’re on the go; your business should be, too.
Life as an agent requires you to be mobile, and your technology should have the latitude to match it. There are many apps out there that are specifically targeted toward real estate agents; the following apps are useful for any businessperson or human with places to go and people to see.
Genius Scan makes invaluable use of the camera on your smartphone, essentially turning it into a scanner. The smart image reader discerns where the edges of the page are against virtually any background, allowing you to make sure you get the entire document in focus.
Once you’ve scanned your document, you can export it in a variety of formats, such as PDF and JPEG. You can also save it to Google Drive or Dropbox – both of which have mobile apps as well. The marriage of all of these services allows you to carry a document hub with you wherever you go.
While you’re creating and saving documents, it helps to have the ability to send them out and receive signatures rather than tracking all of the necessary signers down in person. This is where DocuSign comes in.
DocuSign is secure and easy to use. It is very customizable, so that it will always fit the needs of whatever document you are sending around for signatures. After uploading your document, you indicate whose signatures are necessary and link them to the necessary fields via email address. These signature fields can be placed wherever they are needed on the document by dragging and dropping them to the appropriate locations.
Once you send the document, a link is delivered to each individual person in order for them to access the specific fields they need to sign. Once everyone has signed the document, DocuSign stores the finished product. It is more secure and self-explanatory than some paper signatures are.
Cloze aggregates information from different networks, apps, and services to deliver you a relationship management dashboard. It keeps track of calls, notes, and even Tweets. The smart interface groups interactions by company, by meeting, or other relevant context. It also keeps track of where follow-ups are necessary, so no one is ever left in the dust.
Using free apps such as these, and even upgrading to paid pro and premium versions, can be a great investment on multiple fronts.
First of all, it allows you to be more flexible in your traveling and scheduling. This gives you greater peace of mind and allows you to focus more on clients and business, while removing the added stress of having your resources scattered all over the place. Now, you can do what you need to do with the click of a button.
This, in turn, makes you a more personable and dependable resource for your clients. You can increase your response time as well as your mood and demeanor by being the agent who has it all together. As long as you are on the go, your business should be able to follow you.
