Search, Edit and Save Documents Easily Using Familiar Desktop Tools
Arcuity believes that, while realty companies need a software solution to consolidate and streamline their processes, this program does not have to be an esoteric or alien experience. As a SharePoint real estate template, REALTY|share Desktop brings clients in this unique industry all the ease and familiarity of working with the Microsoft suite of products without sacrificing any of the functionality needed to improve their business processes.
Many real estate companies require a better way to manage their information as their portfolio grows — documents become difficult to find, agents cannot access data remotely, and tasks fall through the cracks. What many firms discover, however, is that most document management solutions require a significant data migration and do not communicate with their existing software. This difficulty further contributes to the glut of organizational programs, each used to manage a single item on a long list of real estate business processes. Agents naturally resist these sorts of procedural changes, as they will have to learn an entirely new system to perform their work. Our software answers each of these problems, representing a real solution for real estate companies in need of relief.
