What’s the future of CRM?

By Tanner McGraw on Mar 19, 2018

blurry_city-320x202.jpegThis article first appeared in Propmodo.

In the late aughts, I was a commercial real estate broker in a desperate search for technology to organize my business. At Marcus & Millichap, I was making hundreds of calls a week and working pretty sizable deals, and it was ridiculous to me that there was no software designed for my industry that could make my job easier. The design and functionality that existed at the time was rudimentary at best, counterproductive at worst, and nothing was in the cloud.

That’s why I created my own CRM, and eventually founded Apto. Even since then, CRE brokerage has changed quite a bit. When I last took stock in 2013, Apto was still just a baby. Barely two years old, we were still learning how to walk, keep our balance, and feed ourselves.

By Erik Dolan-Del Vecchio on Mar 15, 2018

mipim-proptech-europe-2018-conferences-320x192.pngTechnology is pushing the commercial real estate industry to evolve faster than ever before. From software that integrates the entire deal lifecycle to smart buildings that automatically reduce indoor CO2 levels, PropTech comes in all shapes and sizes.

Using the right technology gives everyone from brokers to owners major advantages in today’s market, but before you can realize those gains you need to learn what technology is right for you. PropTech conferences are a great opportunity to do that.

They’re also fun and offer fantastic networking opportunities.

computer-code-320x213.jpgHere in the engineering department at Apto, our goal is to build tools brokers love.

To do that, we also need to give our customers easy access to a number of technology integrations. We want each process and task to be simple—we’re not here to build a new email system after all—so Apto has to work seamlessly with many of the tools that brokers already use in their day-to-day routines.
