Emira Property Fund’s V2.0 of its innovative app has launched, the first and only one of its kind in South Africa which provides real-time information about properties which makes it easier for brokers to conclude leasing deals successfully.
The free app’s updated is based on the patterns and the preferences of over three hundred property brokers who have used the revolutionary early version which was first launched eighteen months ago in late 2016.
The improvements showcase a simpler, extra streamlined, more user-friendly and visually enhanced application with improved search-ability of the schedule of space available through Emira, making it easier for brokers to find what they are looking for with real-time information flow.
“We believe this app is a competitive advantage for brokers, and thus for Emira too. The response from commercial real estate brokers to the earlier version of the app was very positive. Now the refreshed, rebranded app is keeping with rapidly evolving technology. We believe it will ease the leasing process for brokers even further by putting the information they need and value the most at their fingertips. The updated app will ensure that doing business with Emira continues to be a rewarding experience for brokers” commented Geoff Jennett, CEO of Emira.
The vacancy schedule has proven to be one of the most popular functions of the app. This function shares up-to-the-minute information with brokers about the availability of its properties, giving them immediate updates with changes. The app lists premises and their rental rates which are searchable and filterable by size, region and property type.
The new version includes additional search criteria with more regions and sub sectors, all able to respond to the evolution of Emira and its portfolio. Another top feature includes its downloadable resources, enabling brokers to provide their clients with an information pack which gives them a full picture of the property.
The app highlights Emira’s innovative leasing initiative aimed at selected properties for the office market, The Intelligent Relocation, which offers tenants eight months of their total first year’s rental in incentives on a three-year lease, or fourteen months rental in incentives on a five-year lease. It is made up of a rent-free period for fit-out and settling in, and a tenant installation allowance for layout configurations and customisation.
Material supporting this initiative available on the app includes information packs, brochures and information sheets for The Intelligent Relocation properties. The helpful data provided covers specific properties, asking rentals, parking ratios and rentals, and availability – everything that brokers need to help their clients make a well-informed, competitive decision.
Brokers have the option to download a comprehensive range of information to their device or have it emailed to their own inbox, or directly to their clients. This includes Emira’s full vacancy schedule and important documents like its ‘offer to lease’ and ‘broker mandate’, as well as more information about Emira.
What’s more, in this fast-paced around-the-clock world, brokers can access this information on the Emira app, any time of day or night.
Of course, this ease of working is also echoed in Emira’s in-personal broker resources, with three dedicated broker liaisons serving as points of contact for the broking community.
The Emira app is available for Android & IOs operating systems, with tablet and smartphone versions for both platforms. It is free to download from the Android and IOs App Stores – simply search “Emira”.
