2009 - full steam ahead for Entegral
What a year it’s been, after a well deserved break the Entegral team is back in action for a very busy 2009.
In the first quarter of 2009 we will develop no fewer than 5 national websites for existing and new clients. This is in addition to the agent and office website development that takes places on an ongoing basis for new real estate clients. It is great to see that these national groups have so much confidence in the internet despite the state the South African property market is finding itself in.
There is lots of new stuff going into the OMS (Office Management System) and our Grid Interface now allows national real estate groups to advertise on Entegral’s high traffic real estate portals.
We also have an international deal looming for a large real estate group in the USA. We’ve done a proof of concept last year which took more than a month of hard work by the design and development team (including some late nights and lots of coffee). The POC work included Google Map and street view integration for USA property listings (which was quite exciting to explore).
And if you are looking for innovation - a brand new MyProperty website will be up soon which will include a ‘very fancy’ property search.
January is traditionally the best month for property portals in terms of hits, so we are closely monitoring our stats on our key portals including MyProperty and MSN Property.(BTW, MSN property recently recorded over 130,000 visits in a single month, not too bad for a website only 1 year old!). Between the MyProperty and MSN property websites alone, our clients get well over 200,000 quality visits/month.
