BestAgent, a proptech startup, is setting up a one day event for agency suppliers later this month.
This follows BestAgent Founder Charlie Wright saying his team has built “the most important new platform the residential property industry has seen since the dawn of the internet” which allows any supplier to offer its product to any agent using any existing CRM system.
He says this is the first time the industry has had a design purpose-built to solve “the most pervasive problem faced by all agent and all suppliers: integration, or lack of it.”
In a blog, Wright targets independent agents: these have been the focus of a flurry of initiatives in recent weeks, including Graham Lock’s Federation of Independent Agents, Iain White’s Innovation Collaboration Group and most recently the launch of Simon Whale’s Kerfuffle.
Wright’s take is that every agent, “with no exceptions that we know of,” suffers from some duplication of data entry, multiple logins to multiple dashboards for multiple staff at multiple stages of the moving process, making it which he calls “a daily grinding nightmare.”
He describes the platform his team has created over the past three years as “a technical monster and masterpiece” and goes on to say: “Conceiving, designing, speccing and building a platform to allow an unlimited number of suppliers to connect to an unlimited number of agents has been a world-class challenge.”
