CANTON, Ohio, March 25, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Delta Media Group, Inc., one of America’s most established and largest broker technology solutions providers, is deploying new support for virtual Open Houses to its DeltaNET Open House platform free to its customers. The company accelerated its development cycle to provide assistance to agents during COVID-19’s unprecedented impact on the real estate market.
“Our customer’s ability to continue conducting business as we work through COVID-19 is our number one priority,” says Michael Minard, CEO, and owner of Delta Media. “It is our job to help them seamlessly navigate the hurdles they are facing.”
The new Virtual Open House feature adds the ability for real estate sales associates to schedule virtual Open Houses in the same way they do standard Open Houses. Now they can add an indication of its virtual status, providing clients a link for attending the virtual Open House.

“We massively shrunk our development cycle to integrate Virtual Open Houses into our Open House search, our Market Watch Reports, our New Listing Emails, our lead management platform, Ad Wizard platform, email marketing platform, and our automated and highly-popular Facebook advertising platform,” Minard added.
“Additionally, in talking with agents the past couple days and getting feedback, the biggest hurdle they face in doing Virtual Open Houses is the ability to affectively market them. We now have a fully integrated solution that empowers them to market Virtual Open Houses,” said Minard.
