Microsoft Outlook isn’t designed for Realtors and is missing key functionality that real estate agents need to maximize their business success.
Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) May 16, 2013
IXACT Contact is making it easy for Realtors currently using or considering Microsoft Outlook to compare the two systems and understand IXACT Contact’s advantages over a generic contact management system such as Outlook.
This Outlook comparison page is designed to outline the benefits of the firm’s CRM for Realtors and explain why Outlook is a poor substitute for managing your real estate sphere of influence (SOI), staying organized, and keeping in touch.
“Microsoft Outlook isn’t designed for Realtors and is missing key functionality that real estate agents need to maximize their business success,” said Rich Gaasenbeek, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, IXACT Contact. “For instance, you can’t organize and manage your listings, showings, third parties, and transaction documents in Outlook, and Outlook doesn’t include any listing or closing Activity Plans.”
Personalized mass emails are also known to be very difficult in Outlook, and there’s not a library of pre-written drip marketing campaigns for buyer prospects, seller prospects, and past clients. Moreover, Outlook doesn’t provide a professionally designed and written monthly e-Newsletter, such as the one included in CRM systems like IXACT Contact.
In addition to the Outlook page, IXACT Contact currently has two other comparison pages on its website that compare the system to other popular real estate CRM solutions; Top Producer CRM and Agent Office.
“Many real estate sales professionals have been using Outlook for years and just don’t realize the tremendous difference a good CRM for Realtors makes. That’s unfortunate because a true real estate CRM like IXACT Contact is key to building that coveted referrals and repeat business,” commented Gaasenbeek.
