The benefits of using the text message function within Utili

Posted by / 21st May 2015 / Categories: Uncategorized / Tags: , , , / 0 Comments

Within Utili we have a powerful estate agent SMS software for our clients to utilize. With this advanced software, Utili users can not only send reminder text messages to applicants, landlords and vendors regarding viewings and appointments but they can also send out mailing lists via the text message function as well. Running slightly late for an appointment? Let the applicants or vendors know with this feature! This will help minimize missed appointments and cancellations.

Imagine finishing a valuation of a property and being able to send out a text message to potential applicants before you have even left the property to start setting up viewings. The time this will save you from sending out emails to potential applicants is significantly reduced with a few clicks of a button. Any replies from potential applicants come in through the Utili system, keeping everything under one roof and making communication easy and clear.

The text message facility can be found in many areas of the Utili software. It can be found in the applicant, vendor, landlord, tenant and contact section, so anybody listed in the Utili software can be contacted individually. If an applicant has shown interest in a property, you can go onto their profile and send them an individual text message, or if a tenant has rent owing you can remind them of this.

What are the benefits of a custom built website?

Utili offer two kinds of websites that we can create for our clients. We can create a template based website, or we can create a custom built website. In this blog post we will list some of the benefits of a custom built website and how choosing that option can help grow your business.

One of the first benefits of a custom built website is that you can write blog posts. This way you can keep your clients up to date with industry news and information regarding your agency. Its a great way to add content to your site as more content will help your SEO. The phrase ‘content is king’ is very true when it comes to climbing up the search engine ranks. If you want to be on the main page of Google, having more content that can also be shared across your social media platforms will help generate interest.

With a Utili custom built website there is more flexibility in the design and layout of the website. It can be tailored to look exactly how you want it to. It can be themed around your brand, for example with the colours of the website and with any backgrounds of your choosing. It will look unique and original and not a copycat of every other website on the internet. Your website will stand out from the crowd and be memorable to anyone who visits it. A custom built website can also be more search engine friendly in the way it is coded.

A Utili custom built website can have more advanced functionality built into it. Anything can be added in or expanded upon at your request. Some examples of more advanced features include: payment pages, advanced map searches and applicant account areas where they can log in to look at their relevant information.

Your website can grow and change around your business.

Clients with a custom built website can update the page content of the site themselves. That way they can keep their website up to date with the current market.
