Agent Access Re-visited

For many years now the ReloSpec  has provided the ‘Agent Access’ feature.  This great feature provides the agent valuable tools for managing referrals, and is included with your ReloSpec license.

Here are a few of the features included with ‘Agent Access’:

  • The agent has Read-Only access to only those records assigned
  • All ‘Public’ notes are visible
  • Using a navigation button, quickly filter for ‘Active’ or ‘Pending’ or ‘Closed’
  • Using the optional Images feature the agent can upload property images, BMAs or other related files
  • The agent has access to their Agent table record and can update their own email address and other contact details
  • Using the ADD NEW button the agent can submit new referrals directly to ReloSpec
  • At any time the agent can provide updates to referrals assigned to them.  Agents don’t need to wait for an emailed update request and submitted updates go directly to the Responses page
  • Using the REPORTS option the agent can generate their own ‘Agent Scorecard’ report

Setting up your agent’s access is simple.  From the Main Menu page, click SETTINGS, USERS, then click ADD NEW and fill out the page.  The first field (User Name) is very important because it is used to select the records the agent has access to .  It is always the Last Name, First Name.  To make it easier, click the Agent Lookup button to fill it in automatically.

Fill in the other fields including the User ID which must be unique, and the Password.  We suggest using the agent’s email address but can be any unique ID.

Be sure the [License Level] field is set to “Agent”.  Once the record is saved the ID/Password will be available immediately.  And, you may add or delete agent users as needed.

Training videos are available from the Main Menu.  Click ‘About’, ‘Videos’ and click on the ‘Agent Access’ button.

Agents who use this valuable feature are able to manage their referrals easier in less time, help you avoid time-consuming interruptions, and close more business.

Jim Evans to retire in December

After 20+ years of writing, selling and supporting the Relocation Specialist (ReloSpec) software, Jim Evans is retiring.  Last year the software was sold to Constellation Web Solutions with Tom Demos as the Product Manager. Over the last twelve months Jim has helped with the transition.

In a recent interview, Jim said, “Retiring is very bittersweet.  I’ll miss all the great friends I have met along the way.  I’m glad that Sue Farley and Mark Harpootlian have remained with ReloSpec.  Without Sue and Mark’s help I would never have been able to adequately support our many customers over the years.  They are fabulous.”

“I’m also very pleased with how Tom and the Constellation team have embraced the ReloSpec software.  They are a proven team continuing the ReloSpec tradition of offering excellent software products and great customer support.”

Jim’s official last day is Thursday, December 6th.  Though he won’t be involved in the day-to-day operations, he has agreed to attend two of the upcoming conferences in Las Vegas as an ‘Ambassador’.  He’s planning to attend the LeadingRE conference in February (20th – 22nd) and the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices (BHHS) conference in March (10th – 12th).

 

Are you going to the NAR Conference this weekend?

If you are attending this weekend’s NAR conference do not forget to stop by the Constellation Real Estate Group booth and say ‘Hi’ to ReloSpec Product Manager, Tom Demos.

We hope to see you there.

Special integration updates being finalized for Cartus members

We are in the midst of completing a new integration for Cartus members to make it easier and more efficient to use ReloSpec to manage their Cartus referrals.

What does it entail?

  1. With BROKER CENTER – we have created a copy and paste integration that no longer requires a third-party integration.
  2. With LEAD ROUTER – we are finalizing a LEADROUTER API integration that will help all LEADROUTER users automatically sync leads into ReloSpec, as well as send updates back to LEADROUTER (also updating BROKER CENTER).

This way no matter where you prefer to do your work, ReloSpec, LeadRouter, or Broker Center you are able to see real-time updates.   This is a game changer as it relates to efficiency.

Our CARTUS integration solution will allow users to use one, the other or both depending on your needs.   The BROKER CENTER portion is completed, and the LEADROUTER API should be completed this quarter.   Let us know if you want to learn more about the solution.

This is ReloSpec’s continued commitment to providing the most effective and efficient relocation management system for our clients.

ReloSpec Tip: Agent updates

Occasionally we offer ‘ReloSpec Tips’ to help you use features you may not be familiar with.  Today we’re looking at the AGENTS page.

Ever make changes to an agent’s record in the AGENTS page such as Phone or Email, then realize those changes also need to be made in the Referrals table and the related Tasks?  There is an easy way to do that!

Open the AGENTS page using the ‘Other Options’ droplist.  Click the pencil, make your changes and click the button that now appears and is labeled “Refresh (Update) the Tasks & Referrals…”.  The button only appears after you click UPDATE CURRENT RECORD.

After clicking the button, ReloSpec will display the total number of records and fields updated with the agent information.  Now, the info in the Tasks and the Referrals tables will match what you have in the Agents table.
