How to keep your real estate home office running during loadshedding on a budget

Image
Loadshedding in South Africa is a reality we all need to deal with and can impact your productivity if you don't have access to your computer or internet. While there are  many high-end battery backup  and solar options available, for those on a slightly tighter budget look at our recommendations below. Power your internet You will need a UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) to power your internet router. There are many options available , but if you are looking for something with a small form factor to keep your WiFi router on, we can recommend this Vizia mini UPS . If you have fibre-to-home you can also power the ONT (Optical Network Terminal) device with the same UPS using the splitter cable. It recharges when the power is on and will keep your internet on through load shedding: Make your laptop more power-efficient Most agents use laptops, tablets, and phones to conduct business. If you are looking to buy a laptop, look for one with a  solid-state drive  (SSD). They consume less b

Happy Holidays from all of us at Entegral

Happy  holidays ! It goes without saying that 2020 has been a roller coaster, but  thankfully it’s time to slow down the pace; enjoy warm, lazy days on the beach (or not :-); luckily we live in a country that has so much to offer - so if the beach is not on your to-do list this year, we hope you get to explore places that you've never been before. As this is the last blog post that we'll do this year, we want to end it off on a personal note to thank all our clients who stuck with us this year.  All kinds of challenges were thrown our and your way - and seem like we're still not out of the woods yet - but without your loyal support and every bit of effort, we would not have been able to keep our systems running.   It was our goal at the beginning of 2020 and it will be the goal again in 2021; to give the real estate market the most innovative real estate technology.  And, to be clear and transparent in all that we do.  The relationships that we've built over the last co

How to create unlimited virtual tours using Entegral Tours

Image
With the recent launch of Entegral's Tours virtual tour solution, real estate agents now have the opportunity to not only take advantage of creating unlimited virtual tours but also host live guided tours of their virtual tours. This begs the question - how do I capture a virtual tour for my listings? For some real estate agents, getting a photographer involved that has access to a 360-degree camera is the obvious solution. However, for others getting hands-on and doing it themselves is an exciting prospect - and we are here to tell you that it is possible without needing to sell an arm or a leg! The equipment The camera Just like there are different levels of cameras, there are different levels of 360-degree cameras - each to suit your budget. Since we want to ensure that no agent is left behind we are going to look at the best value for money camera - The Ricoh Theta SC and V 360 cameras. The Ricoh Theta SC is a compact device for creating 360° spherical imagery. The unique, dual

Introducing live guided virtual tours for real estate agents

Image
  We are proud to announce the launch of our new standalone virtual tour platform at tours.entegral.net . Earlier this year we launched a prototype virtual tour platform on MyProperty  and the positive feedback from agents prompted us to create a standalone tour platform that will not only receive continuous enhancements but also compliment our other products: Base , Sync , and Flex . The new Entegral Tours platform is available worldwide and accepts automated signup and payment via credit card. We provide free Entegral branded tours and agents can easily upgrade to a paid branded and unlimited virtual tour package. Reimagine property viewings with live guided tours Today we are proud to announce  the launch of a new way to do property viewings . We've fused the personal touch of agents into virtual tours with live video feeds and remote guidance. This makes virtual tours more personal, with clients able to ask questions while the agent guides them through a home in real time. The

Easily link Base with external CRM systems

Image
What is the Base Zapier integration? The Entegral Base system was recently improved with a native Zapier app integration . This allows estate agents to exchange data and create automated workflows with over 2000+ popular apps, including all the leading CRM specific apps.  Why even link a CRM system? Although Base has contact management, contact categories, automatic lead import, and other great CRM features , users sometimes require very specific CRM functions that we don't (yet) cater to. With our Zapier integration , we allow agents to link any popular app with Base. Once linked with your app, you can for instance automatically synchronise your contacts from Base to the external app or vice versa.  The added benefit is that you can create automated workflows and link more apps (e.g. insert contact details into a Mailchimp drip email campaign  and ZOHO CRM at the same time). This makes the Zapier fee irreverent compared to the derived benefits.  Automated portal lead import from
