Estate Agent

We selected this as a proposal because we wanted to demonstrate the value in how we add value through our solutions for the simplest of needs, saving both time and money for your business through the use of technology.

Background

“Many of the properties we have on our portfolio stay empty for weeks and sometimes months. When a client instructs us as their agent we undertake responsibility for the property.

We’ve at times had difficulties with squatters and in some occasions due to the length of time it has taken to resolve buyers have withdrawn offers. It therefore remains in our interest to ensure properties our clients have entrusted us with remain in good order, so we now carry out regular spot checks on our empty properties.

At any one time we could have 15-20 empty properties in our portfolio, so a few visits a day to cover them all consumes our agents time and even cost us a little money in parking costs”

What We Proposed

We calculated the annual costs for such a simple activity was around £3,000 a year (few hours a week of an agents time, parking charges plus fuel and mileage)

We proposed a small ‘fleet’ of connected IP cameras to be taken to each empty property on the day we are instructed by our client. The cameras proactively alert the team on noise or motion detection and the team  have access to the real time camera feeds at the click of a button.

The Benefits

Not only did this allow the team to continue to look after their customers properties but they now do it better than before because it is instant access

The solution cost £2,000 for the cameras and service setup, and £400 a year for the managed service.

“Over the next 3 years we’ll have saved about £6,000. Not to mention my agents can now do something more productive than driving around checking up on our empty properties. 

An added bonus is we use this to demonstrate to our prospective clients how we look after their property should they instruct us, giving us a unique advantage for them to select us as their agent above our competitors”

The Last Word

“What impressed me the most about Cameze Solutions is the approach and care around the proposal, they weren’t simply trying to sell me a product like many companies that contact us do and they clearly understand business, like a blended business and technology consultancy. We have continuous challenges in our industry and business and we’ll be engaging Cameze Solutions for other opportunities and benefits they can provide”
