It’s no secret that Keller Williams is investing heavily in technology. With the unveiling of the Keller Cloud earlier this year followed by a recent announcement that they’re setting aside $1 billion to invest in technology development, they’re generating a lot of hype in the industry. As a brokerage with over 800 offices and 150,000+ associates worldwide, it’s hard not to be intimidated by these numbers.
The truth is, you don’t need $1 billion in spare cash to keep up. At the end of the day, it isn’t about having a fancy proprietary solution, it’s about investing in your agents, delivering a competitive experience, and meeting consumer expectations.
Consumer expectations are changing – they now expect agents to deliver fast, accurate information. Agents need an organized, integrated database in order to deliver on these expectations. It enables you to elevate your consumer experience in a scalable way.
Technology is woven into almost every part of an agent’s day-to-day life. They need tools that will enable them to work faster and smarter, so they can stay competitive while enjoying a healthy work/life balance. When you invest in your agents and their success, it rolls up into your brokerages’ success.
Keller Williams happens to be doing this through a platform, where the brokerage can run its entire business. We agree they’re onto something here as they’re jumping onboard with an important trend. The open platform is where the entire industry is heading as it helps brokerages integrate technologies across the entire organization, increasing efficiency and profits.
You need best-in-class tools to compete. You need a power strip to plug-and-play. But you don’t necessarily need to build this in-house. There are ways to keep up with the competition, even if you don’t have a spare $1B. After all, you are real estate experts, not a tech firm. That’s why MoxiWorks strives to complement brokerages, offering a comprehensive open platform, the Moxi Cloud, which integrates all their brokerages’ technology. We take care of your tech so you can place your focus on real estate. An open platform is the ecosystem for your brokerage technology. It’s where all of your tech tools live, sharing data and integrating your entire organization. You have the flexibility to change along with the industry. In fact, the beauty of the Moxi Cloud open platform is that you aren’t limited to MoxiWorks tools, but can plug and play the tech tools and services that best fit your brokerages’ culture and needs.
How does this help you compete? You can do everything they can do, and you don’t have to invest $1 billion to do it.
