There's a new player on the back office management scene, and its name is Brokermint. We first started hearing buzz about this product almost a year ago in a handful of real estate groups that we frequent online.
The software has grown up a lot since then--in April, they added electronic signature capabilities and, in November, integration with QuickBooks--making it a serious contender to replace existing systems as the back office platform of choice.
Now that Brokermint has "come of age," so to speak, let's take a look at what it has to offer brokerages.
Full Insight Into Your Business
Brokermint bills itself as an "all-in-one" back office platform. And with the recent addition of eSignatures and accounting software integration, this is more true than ever. The solution handles everything from commission management, transaction management, reports, and more--all with the goal of increasing your firm's operational efficiency.
Of course, to increase efficiency, a program must be easy to use. We've seen a lot of legacy back office solutions at RE Technology and, while powerful, too many feature interfaces that are clunky and confusing.
This is not the case with Brokermint. The interface is streamlined and modern looking, and easy to figure out. We're particularly fond of the main page, which prominently displays your company's sales pipeline. Right from the get-go, brokers can see the sales value of their active, pending, and closed listings for the current month, as well as an overview of previous months.
Users can click any section of the funnel to see the transactions involved; in the image above, for example, clicking the top section shows all active transactions. Click "Pending" and you'll see all pending transactions. You can access transactions directly from the pipeline screen, or you can navigate to the Transaction section.
