For Immediate Release
CHICAGO, Feb. 9, 2017—The Council of Residential Specialists (CRS) announced today that they have collaborated with technology innovator, Agentdesks, to offer their new mobile first CRM application with extensive networking capabilities free to all CRS Designees.
All CRS Designees will now get an exclusive, free, customized subscription to the Agentdesks Professional app (retail value of ~$200) which includes a private CRS-only networking group within its mobile platform. The new service is rolling out regionally and became available to all CRS Designees beginning in February, 2017.
A key differentiator of the solution is its ability to find matches for a client’s requirement or listing. The first CRM that allows users to easily market clients’ needs to a trusted network of agents, its mobile-first approach allows CRS Designees to access real time data while out of the office meeting prospects and agents. It will act as a hub to enable users to organize their customer email, website, and phone interactions all in one place - making it easier to attract, acquire, and retain more clients with the added benefit of advanced data integrations and analytics.
Agentdesks capabilities include:
- Unique networking capabilities that allow CRS Designees to join exclusive CRS referral groups to match their buyers with properties.
- Single inbox for all communication through an in-built messaging channel, facilitating smooth interaction with clients and agents.
- Ability to track each client’s activity history and manage to-do items. Leads can be imported from Zillow, Realtor.com, email, voice calls and other channels.
“Our collaboration with Agentdesks brings a sophisticated system to help our CRS members strategically engage with clients and prospects, manage connections and share information,” said Lana Vukovljak, CRS Chief Executive Officer. “This new benefit will help enhance customer and referral relationships across any device or channel.”
Mobile CRM usage has exploded in the last 18 months, with an estimated 91% of businesses with over 11 employees now using a mobile CRM system.
“CRS Designees are more successful than the rest because they maintain excellent relationships with customers and at the same time maintain a strong network of Realtors that can empower them with timely information. We, at Agentdesks, understand that and have built a perfect platform to facilitate both aspects of this sales process.” said Sanya Gurnani, Co-Founder and COO, Agentdesks.
Agentdesks professional-level features will also include an analytics dashboard, custom workflows, and a direct MLS property feed.
In addition, Agentdesks will be powering the Council’s Find-A-CRS exclusive online referral directory which is being enhanced with new functionality and features.
