Rilke (0.18) - Revamped User Controls
Rilke is live! This release continued to build on the site redesign we launched in April. Our last release focused on improving the user experience by streamlining navigation. This month we focused on revamping and strengthening our user controls.
Our goal with every release is to provide users with a more intuitive experience and allow them to take advantage of the features and high quality data of Agorafy. All users can quickly access the expanded search box at at any time while on the site. We wanted the most frequently used features to be just as accessible.
Easy Management of Listings and Profile
The first thing our users will notice when they log in is that their former Dashboard has been replaced by a "Manage" dropdown menu. From this menu, users can more easily choose from managing their listings, their professional profile, and subscriptions.
As always, from the My Listings page, users may continue to:
- Update listings with new photos, flyers and floor plans
- Report listings as leased or off-market
- Schedule an open showing for any of their listings
- Add new exclusive listings
The My Profile page allows users to easily:
- Update or complete their professional profiles and contact information
- View their public facing profile to see what other users see when viewing their profiles
Expanded Subscription Management
One of the best ways for our users to save time and get the most value out of Agorafy is to create subscriptions for frequently run searches or for specific listings.
Whether just a quick neighborhood filter like "Retail in Soho" or a more specific advanced search, users can subscribe to that search criteria and constantly be updated through their subscription feed. Users may also subscribe to specific listings and be notified of any changes to that listing.
Agorafy is committed to building out features which allow users to get the most out of our data. This month we took a big step forward in improving the accessibility to those features.
So far in 2013, we have focused on refining Agorafy and the user experience. This of course will continue as we move forward. But be on the lookout this summer for additional improvements to functionality and data.
Send us your thoughts!
Agorafy rolled out its newest release, named "Poe" (0.16) this week and looks to further its goal of becoming the digital home for New York's commercial real estate community. Among the newest features is Broker Search, giving users the ability to search for professionals by areas of expertise. Also, Custom Reports gives users the ability to customize the reports they print from Agorafy prior to sending or presenting them to a client.
The Broker Search feature allows property owners, tenants, brokers and other professionals to search for specialists in the area where they need representation. Users can select which borough and neighborhood they are focused on as well as the areas of concentration (Landlord Representation/Tenant Representation) and area of expertise (Retail Leasing/Office Leasing/Building Management).
Agorafy populates and ranks the results based on the number of exclusives brokers have in the selected neighborhood(s). This gives property owners and commercial tenants a very strong idea of who is the go-to expert in the selected neighborhood.
Agorafy also uses information provided by each broker in their Professional Profile to populate search results and ranks them accordingly. This feature is especially important for brokers who specialize in Tenant Representation and Building Management and may not have a large number of exclusives on the market.
The newest release "Poe" also gives users the ability to customize the reports they print from Agorafy. This feature comes in extremely useful when brokers want to present clients with available listings via e-mail or when taking them on a tour of the property.
Users can select properties to be included in a report and then have Agorafy generate the pdf.
Agorafy users have the option when printing a report to generate the report "As Is" with the exclusive brokers contact information, or they can customize the report with their own contact information which is pre-populated by Agorafy.
Any tenants out there feeling brave? Use the Broker Search feature and tell us what you think.
