Keeping ahead of the curve

As a business owner it is important that you keep up to date with emerging technology. The effects of innovation such as smartphones, client relationship management (CRM) software and even drones have revolutionised the real estate industry and it is vital that we continue to engage with this area.

If you are naturally interested in technology, you are probably aware of new developments as they become available. But if you aren’t interested, you may have to try a few different methods in order to achieve this objective.

Subscribing to technology blogs or publications might be a good place to start. Many of these are quite broad, but there are some blogs that focus on real estate technology. A quick online search should yield results.

Another option might be to make it the role of one of your staff members to monitor new technologies. Pick an employee who is tech savvy and ask them to report back to you regularly about relevant innovations.

When you encounter new technology, the next step is to decide if it can be implemented in your business. Try to have an open mind and be creative with the idea. If you dismiss new technology too quickly you might just miss something that could make your life much easier.
