Social distancing laws introduced during the coronavirus outbreak have led to an inevitable slow down in the property market, with many estate agents now working from home.
When you have a passion for property it’s hard to sit still and do nothing, but one positive thing you can do is, plan for the future.
The Innovation Collaboration Group (ICG) has been set up to provide an invaluable source of information for estate agents, helping them embrace new technology and benefit from the digital revolution that is about to sweep the industry.
Almost every day new PropTech products and services are launched on the market, promising reduced workloads and smarter working practices. ICG has brought together a wide range of ‘best in class’ UK proptech solution providers who aim to simplify and demystify the world of PropTech.
Informal research carried out by ICG suggests that when researching PropTech solutions, estate agents can feel overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of products and services available.
That’s why ICG’s top industry innovators are on a mission to help estate agents navigate the PropTech ‘minefield’, helping them make informed decisions about software and services. ICG members have pledged to work together in a spirit of collaboration, offering products, services, learning opportunities and industry insights within one trusted space. That means when you deal with ICG, you can expect a streamlined approach to all your PropTech software and service requirements.
A website built around collaboration
The ICG website, launched at the end of March 2020 will be a one-stop-shop for PropTech innovations for estate agents. It is a place where you can pick and choose from a broad range of PropTech services and products, all provided by top-rated UK suppliers. Company names are listed under seven different categories: lead generation, strategy, marketing, customer experience, people, internal efficiencies and new revenue streams. When you visit the site you can browse areas of interest and select the solutions you need to help your business grow.
Industry insights and advice
Estate agents signing up to ICG can expect one-to-one contact with the UK’s brightest and best innovators. That means you can ask the experts for valuable advice and guidance specific to your business.
The group also offers industry events, expert-led webinars and free training sessions. At these UK-wide events you’ll be able to learn more about property’s digital revolution, talk to fellow property professionals and get hands-on with the latest, most exciting new PropTech developments.
Crucially, ICG suppliers are not just here to promote their products. They want to talk to you, understand your ambitions and learn from your experience. This two-way process promises to inform the growth of even more exciting developments in future.
