Why Managed IT Services are a Good Fit for Real Estate
Our managed IT service will benefit your real estate agency or property development company in a number of ways, saving you time, money and a whole lot of headaches. Here are some reasons why:
Improved Communication and Collaboration
In the property industry, you’re on the road a lot. Our cloud based communication and collaboration systems ensure you can take the office with you, wherever you go. If you’re on site or in a meeting with buyers or sellers, you can keep in touch with your team and even work on projects together as if you were in the same room. Real time communication has never been this effective or easy to use for real estate agencies.
Protecting your clients data is essential, especially when you’re dealing with large assets such as properties. Our managed IT services deliver strong cyber security solutions for the real estate industry. You can rest assured your systems, processes and data will enjoy the highest level of protection possible.
Affordable IT Solutions
Our managed services for real estate IT are the affordable way to enjoy the best technology for your property company. Services are paid for on a predetermined subscription basis, so you know exactly what your monthly IT expenses will be. There’s no nasty bill shock waiting for you, plus you avoid the initial high set up costs of going it alone. Your business will also enjoy the scalability of being able to expand or shrink, and only pay for what you use.
24/7 Monitoring and Assistance
You and your agency work long hours, so we do too! Our intelligent monitoring system keeps an eye on your IT infrastructure all day and night, helping us to preempt problems before they develop. No downtime means no lost income, and no frustrations for you or your time as they continue to make waves in the Brisbane real estate industry. We also have a Brisbane based help desk, who are waiting to provide context appropriate answers to your managed IT questions.
Business Grade Internet
Dedicated business grade internet systems mean you’re not sharing your bandwidth with anybody else. Your speeds remain constant, even during peak times, maintaining the effectiveness of your cloud services. Fast, secure and extremely reliable, ask us today about our business internet solutions for property and real estate companies.
Peace of Mind
Your field of expertise is in real estate, not IT. You don’t want to be spending time and effort trying to ensure your IT infrastructure is operating like it should, your software vendors are all paid and your networks are fully secure. Take a weight off your shoulders, enjoy full peace of mind and let the professionals take care of that for you.
