Real Estate IT

Realtor meeting with two clients

Keeping your IT – hardware, software, phone and networks – running securely, without downtime and at peak performance is a full-time job. When you maintain an expensive internal IT staff, they’re most often stretched across every discipline, jacks of all trades but masters of none. When you try and handle it on your own, too often you get the benefit of professional IT expertise only when there’s a fire to be fought. The Office Technology Group helps firms slash the cost of buying and managing real estate IT services, from strategy and planning to complete outsourced IT management.

Collaboration

Your office is wherever your feet are. You must be able to access all your documents, including contracts, blueprints, inspection reports and more. That means that your shared network also must be up and running all the time.

Compliance

Regulations change constantly, and it’s imperative your technology is continually monitored and upgraded to ensure they meet the most current rules. That applies to how your applications store data, how your storage protects it, and how your networks transmit it.

Performance and Integration

All of your equipment and software has to run perfectly on its own, and be perfectly integrated together. This applies to anything from project management systems to CAD/CAM, from your back office to your customer portal.

Costs

You face three costs. First is the capital cost of owning and licensing technology. Second is the operational cost of keeping that technology running. And third is the cost caused by delays when you fall out of compliance.

Security

Data loss – whether by hacker, lost equipment or natural disaster – can throw a project into a tailspin, imposing days of delay. Every delay means money wasted and revenue missed, demanding a strategic backup, restore and a disaster recovery system at the ready.
