TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 28, 2014) - Teranet, the exclusive provider of online property search and registration in Ontario, and service provider to over 30,000 Ontario real estate sales professionals, is proud to announce the launch of ViMO, or Virtual Mobile Office.
ViMO is a new iPad app for real estate sales professionals that will enrich their face-to-face client interactions and help them win more business. ViMO combines current market listing data with property sales, market statistics, demographics, schools, and more; this wealth of information will provide real estate sales professionals with access to essential details that will drive kitchen table conversations and help clients make informed decisions. ViMO was unveiled at the end of March and has rapidly become the on-the-road tool of choice for real estate sales professionals.
"With ViMO, our goal is to create the premiere lead-to-close solution that will allow real estate sales professionals to elevate their personal value proposition to new levels. By creating a rich mobile experience, ViMO will enable high-performing, information-savvy real estate sales professionals to bring sophisticated technology to everyday interactions with their prospects and clients," said Jeremy Fisher, Teranet's Strategic Product Manager for Real Estate.
ViMO's digital forms with e-signature capabilities will revolutionize real estate sale professionals' current work flow by automatically importing key data fields such as owners' names, address, and legal description data that is sourced from the Electronic Land Registry System. Furthermore, e-forms "Auto-Population" will benefit real estate sales professionals by enabling them to send relevant documents to their clients via email and when on-the-go, hence minimizing paperwork time.
"The genesis of ViMO was inspired by feedback from the Ontario real estate sales professionals community, valued Teranet customers for over 10 years," said Elgin Farewell, CEO and President of Teranet. "We leveraged our technology to create a ground breaking mobile service for real estate sales professionals. We are very excited by the immediate ViMO opportunity, and the great potential that it presents as a platform for further services."
In addition, by handling e-forms via ViMO, real estate sales professionals can monitor registrations on listings for the duration of the listing agreement; and will be able to notify clients of any mortgages, liens, easements, power of attorney, or other registrations that could impact the transfer before the closing date.
ViMO helps real estate sales professionals do more on the go, be on the cutting edge and stay connected to existing and prospective clients.
