In real estate, every minute counts, making the difference between being a house hunter or a homeowner.
With a tap of their smartphones or tablets, however, licensed real estate agents can now quickly, securely capture and deliver clients’ checks directly to title companies, gaining a timely edge. The app comes from Dallas-based ZOCCAM and projekt202, the world’s leader in experience-driven application development.
Working with projekt202’s integrated team, ZOCCAM recently debuted the latest generation of its cutting-edge, easy-to-use mobile app. Its impact on the highly-competitive real estate market is game-changing. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) estimated that each U.S. real estate agent drives an average of 30,000 miles annually for business. According to another report, title companies spent more than $16 million on courier fees in 2013 alone, costs which are inevitably passed down to real estate agents and home buyers.
With the convenience and security of ZOCCAM’s platform, realtors capture the front and back of a client’s check and the encrypted file is delivered to designated title companies. This saves time and money by eliminating manual delivery of funds, protects the consumer’s personal and financial information, and provides greater security with reduced risks of liability.
“ZOCCAM’s partnership with projekt202 is helping us revolutionize the way real estate transactions are conducted,” said ZOCCAM CEO and Founder Ashley Cook. “Our latest version puts more features and usability in realtors’ hands, optimizing an agent’s ability to more quickly and efficiently attract and service clients. With projekt202’s approach, we benefit from a quicker time-to-market, solid performance and a familiar technology stack that works across both the iPhone and Android mobile platforms.”
To build the latest version, projekt202 partnered with Xamarin, an industry leader in providing an enterprise mobile development platform that accelerates the creation, testing and monitoring of mission-critical applications.
“Companies rely on mobile apps to drive revenue, gain competitive advantage and increase productivity. Xamarin helps deliver the platform for this success,” said Greg Urquhart, Xamarin’s Vice President of Partners and Strategic Alliances. “projekt202 assures customers will have the best possible user experience on the Xamarin platform. With projekt202 as a top Xamarin Premier Partner, we’re proud of the solutions we generate together.”
Xamarin has become a key player in the enterprise mobile app market. projekt202’s developers use Xamarin to accelerate the creation and testing of mission-critical consumer and enterprise applications.
“Xamarin was truly pivotal in the cross-platform development for ZOCCAM. No other platform enables businesses to reach all major devices with 100 percent fully native apps from a single code base,” said projekt202 Chairman and CEO David Lancashire. “Being able to leverage the Xamarin platform gave us a dramatic time-to-market advantage, making it possible to deliver a native experience across iOS and Android devices in a short timeframe.”
The updated ZOCCAM app is available through www.zoccam.com, Google Play and the Apple App Store.
