Last week, the real estate industry’s leading contract software outfit, zipLogix, announced the release of their zipConsult conferencing service. Designed to amplify the all round utility of their popular zipForm® contract software, zipConsult is powered byAnyMeeting. AnyMeeting, with an integrated zipForm 6 Pro, may emerge as the premier mobile meetup combo for the industry.
The long and short of this product release is fairly simple for any agency to get actually. Meeting online, with the capability of reviewing documents collectively, ending in the more efficient and timely closing of deals? This is what business, especially small business, really needs from technology. Video conferencing, doc sharing, and particularly the capability to “hook up” on the go, these are features agents and the industry need and want.
Not unlike hospitality, PR, or any other especially digital capable industry, real estate is particularly conducive of better mobile capabilities. The day of the static office deal are rapidly fading into the past as more and more buyers and sellers utilize smart devices as carry along assistants. The ability to buy and sell, and to meet and virtual “handshake”, this is what tools like zipConsult can enable. Meetings can be scheduled in the blink of an eye, on the spur of the moment.
Furthermore, if we look at what’s ahead for mobile technologies, then AnyMeeting and companies like ZipLogix are actually in a prime position to integrate into the future of business. To see what I mean, watch the video below with Cisco’s Padma Warrior. In this segment on the The Gavin Newsom Show, she discusses the next shift in mobile smartness – device to device communications.
Now, the end of this tech tale is obviously a futuristic image. The image is one of the need for office space disappearing altogether. If you can, image a world where no service industry exec or office worker ever has to drive to work. For sustainability of our planet, conservation of resources, and to fulfill the promise technology has always held – advanced communicative thinking is the way.
Soon you will be able to touch a wall in your house and transform it into a communications interface AND a window into any genre you can think of. Oh wait, you can do that now. The future, which is actually now, is about our connectivity being more enhanced than ever, from whatever distance. Like the Xperia Z video from Sony at article’s end, shows a man on a mountain – he might as easily be meeting to sign a closing. Just imagine.
