Winkworth Franchising IT-in-a-box Service

You may or may not be familiar with what needs to be in place when it comes to IT for an estate agency office, but if you’re not, then this is what you will need to tick off your checklist:

  • - IT Support services
  • - Internet line
  • - Telecoms/Phone system
  • - Data cabling/Cabinet/Switch Hubs
  • - Windows Server
  • - PCs
  • - Anti-Virus software
  • - Microsoft Office
  • - Firewall
  • - Wireless Access points
  • - Printer/Photocopier
  • - Email
  • - Reapit (front end property system)
  • - Veco (back end property management system)
  • - Portal affiliates
  • - OPTIONAL: Digital window displays

A lot of the above can be quite overwhelming but upon joining Winkworth the IT team will be on hand to help. Earlier in 2017 the department developed ‘IT-in-a-box’, a full service which can not only help you set up all of the items above, but will then run and manage your IT remotely from the office in Mayfair. As an independent you will appreciate the amount of time this will free up for you to do what you do best – sell and let properties.

“We know the property industry, we know the IT industry, we know the IT requirements of an estate agency, and so if you bundle all that skill set together you have our IT-in-a-box service. This offers you a single point of contact to deal with your IT infrastructure in a proactive manner.” - Justin Wong, IT Services Manager

Upon signing up to IT-in-a-box you will be given a complete How To guide to aid the onboarding procedure – making setting up your Winkworth office a much smoother process.
