Fully featured database-driven web site for Estate Agents

Estate Agents can now get the benefits of a fully featured database-driven web site for a fraction of the normal development and hosting costs.

Featuring a dynamic, three-level property search facility (Province, Region, Area) which includes selecting the type of property, whether for rental or for sale and price range, Property Manager's unique property locator tells you instantly how many properties are on display for each combination of selection criteria, without having to go to the web server each time a change in selection criteria is made.

Property details are managed online via a user-friendly admin panel accessed by a secure login. There are too many features to list them all here. Instead, follow this link to where we have built a fully functional demo based on a hypothetical estate agent (IIS Properties).

The demo is populated with example properties and will not only will show you the capabilities of the system for presenting properties, but also has a demo login so you can see just how the management system works too!

If you don't make use of a portal, just advertise in normal media a few selected properties and refer the reader to your own Property Manager web site. The savings you make on reducing your normal advertising spend can be enough to cover the costs of your Property Manager web site!

Listing your properties on a property web portal might get you referrals but you are also enabling the viewer to see your competitor's offerings too. Rather advertise just a few selected properties on the portal and link from the portal to your own custom Property Manager site where all your properties can be listed for a very reasonable one-time fee and a very low monthly hosting fee.

Property Manager clients, like those for some of the other special IIS products get free upgrades as the product is enhanced with additional features, making Property Manager the most cost-effective way to sell more properties while establishing your own presence on the 'Net.

Do you have Plenty of Products & need a Catalogue Website?

A Catalogue is a fully-featured, database-driven web site whose product content is managed by the client using a user-friendly admin web page.

A Catalogue provides up to three levels of product classification and any number of products in a group. 

All management of the Catalogue takes place using a client IIS login, which directs the client to our secure management pages. From here, pictures can be uploaded from the client's PC, automatically sized and placed in the appropriate place on our server. Information to go with each picture is also entered from our management page(s) via an easy-to-use form. The order in which pictures and corresponding text appear can also be changed by the client. 

When the viewer sees a Catalogue results page, relatively small images (thumbnails) are displayed - these images are automatically generated from the full size images that have been uploaded by the client. The client therefore only needs to upload one size image. Images are automatically optimized by our system and checked for file size before uploading takes place, ensuring best possible results on the web page. 

The layout of a Catalogue is custom-authored by IIS (background, colour scheme, logos etc) whereas the specific product information is managed solely by the client. Catalogues can therefore be tailored to suit the needs of each client. Catalogue can be accessed 24 hrs a day 7 days a week, enabling content to be fully up-to-date, enabling IIS clients to provide a better customer service to their customers.

The IIS Catalogue features the ability to automatically place featured products on the Home page and there is a "shopping cart" feature that automatically populates an on-line enquiry form. A Catalogue client can also upload products but elect to display them at a later date. 

Why not develop my own Catalogue?

Web authoring is an expensive business and user-updateable pages usually require your service provider to manage the page(s) via database resources, which can add considerably to hosting fees. IIS has developed a platform that can be shared by many clients, therefore optimizing resources and reducing cost. 

Catalogues can be configured and be up and running usually within a few days - a lot faster than having a system developed in-house. Full training is supplied on our premises to ensure our clients understand are able to make best use of the system. 

So what does it cost? 

A Catalogue carries a one-time customisation/development charge and a standard hosting fee for this powerful database-driven facility. 

Contact the me for full pricing details. 

Show me an example 

We have built a fully-functional demonstration web site that simulates an on-line computer store. Follow this link: to see the demo. You can also log-in as the client and view the admin section to see just how easy it is to update and manage the site. The demo web site will illustrate more features not mentioned here so be sure to go have a look and see why the IIS Catalogue is the most powerful, cost-effective and user-friendly product web site available today. 

Listed below are some examples of catalogue websites we have designed & developed...
