Real estate is a unique profession. You must be collaborative and competitive to excel. You may work side-by-side on a transaction, representing a seller and buyer, respectively, while competing for the same listing on another high-end property in the next suburb.
There’s a lot of money at stake and you must take advantage of every opportunity that comes your way. The Cloud has made it faster and easier for real estate agents to access information across multiple offices. Cloud technologies and secure file sharing have removed many of the barriers of doing business on the go.
Hopefully This Won’t Happen To You
A developer contacts you late on a Friday night when you’re out to dinner with friends. He wants to see that proposal offering $5,250,000 for his office building that you called him about earlier in the day. He says that he needs it now.
But, without driving 10 kilometers back to the office, you can’t access it. You’ve had a few drinks, so you wait until Saturday morning to go into the office to fax it to him.
You find a message on your voicemail. He’s angry and decided to accept another offer. You just gave away $250,000 – all because you didn’t have cloud access to your files.

How Else Will Your Real Estate Business Benefit From The Cloud?
You’ll Save Money
When moving to the Cloud, you won’t have to invest in costly hardware, maintenance, and software licenses. With rapid changes in technology, you’ll no longer need to replace resources when they become obsolete. Plus, you can increase capacity or add capabilities without investing in a new infrastructure, licensing software, or training personnel. And you can pay for it all on a monthly, per-user basis.
Data Security Will Be Improved
With the Cloud, you’ll have the peace of mind knowing that your backups will take place every few hours. You’ll also benefit from fully managed monitoring, maintenance, and OS updates. Plus, you can opt to have your systems protected by our managed firewall services.
If you’re worried about storing your data in the Cloud, don’t. Security is actually increased because we must adhere to International Organization for Standardization (ISO) requirements and ongoing security audits. You also don’t need to worry about lost laptops or hacking threats. Your data will always be protected.
With cloud computing from Steadfast Solutions, you can increase provisioning speed and cut deployment time for new computing products and services. Once you are on the Cloud, your entire system can be fully functional in just a few minutes. This not only saves computing time but potentially time to make offers for those hard-to-find properties.
With pay-as-you-go cloud services you can quickly scale up or down as you need more or fewer services. Add or delete services as employees and agents come and go. And when times are slow, you won’t waste money on hardware and software that sits unused.
Our high-performing, flexible cloud infrastructure helps you save money while increasing productivity. You can easily edit, share, and update your critical business information via the Cloud. You can also authorise access to your data for whomever you wish. Plus, you and your approved users can access your data at any time and from anywhere using the Cloud with mobile solutions such as laptops, tablets, or smartphones. The result is increased productivity for your business and happy clients.
Steadfast Solution’s Master Service Agreements keep your critical business information safe and secure by using enhanced layers of security and authorisation requirements. Plus, it will be stored in secure data centres protected from manmade and natural disasters, hardware failures, and viruses.
