Watch and Learn: 5 Broker Webinars from 2016
The question we are asked most during webinars we host is, "Is this being recorded?" It's not uncommon for busy brokers to have to leave during an event. Some want a video that they can share with colleagues. Others simply want a recording so that they can revisit the knowledge shared and digest it at their own pace. Whatever the reason for wanting a recording, brokers attend webinars to view live demonstrations of real estate apps and to learn about business best practices from successful brokers and other industry leaders. We record every webinar we host so that our subscribers can catch up on what they missed, or simply indulge in a fun, visual way to learn about technology. We hosted several webinars this year. Here are five of our best broker-focused webinars (and their recordings!). 1. It's Your Business, It's Your Data! Date aired: Wednesday, January 19, 2016 Most real estate software today is cloud-based. While the convenience is undeniable--there's no software to update or files to back up--it means that a third party has control of your data. Do you know what your vendors do with all of that sensitive information? Do you know how and where they store your data? How about what security measures they employ? If you're unsure, check out this webinar. Expert panelists from DocuSign, a pacesetter in secure data handling, share how to evaluate the way vendors handle your data. Below are just some of the questions they recommend that brokers ask their technology partners; watch the video below to learn more: Do you resell customer data in any format? Does anyone in your company have access to data in the system? Does your company do background checks on employees that have access to the data? How long does your company store the data? How often does your company purge old data? How will data be protected if integrated with other third party vendors?

[Video] It's Your Business, It's Your Data!
Do you know how, where, and when your transaction data is being used? Brokers are overwhelmingly turning to cloud solutions to manage and complete transactions, and the handling of that transaction data is a top concern. As the facilitators of the real estate transaction, brokers are responsible for the care of sensitive client information. Are your technology vendors transparent about how and where they store your business data once it has been entered into their system? If you're not sure, watch the video below. It's a recording of a live webinar we hosted earlier today on how to evaluate technology vendors for data security. We were joined by special guests Glenn Shimkus and Georg Gerstenfeld of DocuSign, a global leader in the push for standards in digital transaction management. Brokers from across the nation tuned in to the webinar to learn key considerations and questions to ask technology providers. If you were unable to join us, don't worry.

How Technology Can Improve Customer Service and Your Bottom Line
Earlier this week, we wrote about a new poll that reveals that 76 percent of home buyers believe technology makes them better buyers. Nearly 70 percent used the Internet or apps to submit documents, and an impressive 92 percent of respondents said technology saved them time. Considering this, it's not surprising that 74 percent of buyers said it was important that their real estate agent be technologically savvy. With the end of 2014 just weeks away, now is a good time to examine the tools you're offering your agents that help them meet (and exceed!) the expectations of today's consumer. Start by asking whether the tools you use are helping or hurting the client experience. Is it saving your clients time? How about your agents? You should also consider the impact of those tools on your bottom line. A recent study by consulting firm Intellicap, for example, revealed that using electronic signature and transaction management solution DocuSign saved a brokerage doing 500 transactions a year over $15,000 annually (learn more in our upcoming webinar). Here are a few interesting stats from their breakdown: DocuSign saves $21 per transaction in printing and overnight costs Brokerages save $10 per transaction in increased agent productivity Errors and lost documents are reduced by 81.6%
