5 Reasons for Voice Tech in Real Estate

Working in the real estate industry is exciting, but can be time-consuming, especially when it comes to documentation. Real estate agents are always on the go and their days are filled with a variety of tasks ranging from administration, marketing properties, hunting for new leads, networking and, most importantly, communicating. Communication is a crucial part of a real estate agent’s job and it is something that can ultimately make or break a potential deal. Since voice technology is all about improving communication, the benefits voice technology offers for the real estate sector are endless. Here are 5 benefits of using voice technology in real estate.

Boost your productivity by getting things done on the go

If you’re new to voice technology, you might ask yourself the question “why dictate?”. The answer lies in two words: mobility and productivity. Real estate professionals need the freedom to work from anywhere, anytime – more so today than ever before. While stuck in traffic, mobile apps allow you to cross things off your to-do list, hands-free, solely relying on your voice.  Why not use the time you spend in your car, that would otherwise go to waste, to create your to-do list itself first thing in the morning? How about answering e-mails or working on that property description you need to finish by the end of the day? Philips SpeechLive helps you maximize every minute and allows you to send all your recordings to the cloud where it will be immediately transcribed through automated speech recognition. It works seamlessly with IOS and Android, allowing you to use real-time and automated speech recognition directly in the app. Furthermore, you can attach pictures to any of your recordings and share it with anyone that would like to collaborate, whether at the office, at home, or anywhere else with an internet connection.

Get ahead of your competition

Although real estate agents are excellent communicators, so are their competitors and staying ahead of them is a number one priority in order to be successful. The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly accelerated interest in digitalization and as a result, voice technology has experienced a boom as well. While many of us are familiar with some form of voice technology today, others might still be weary or not fully aware of their capabilities. However, it is not only easier to speak than to type, it is also a lot faster. Studies have shown that speaking can be seven times faster than typing. In the fast-paced world of real estate, that means more time left for your core tasks, allowing you to stay a step ahead of your competition.

Make technology work for you

As previously mentioned, to many companies the COVID-19 pandemic has meant the acceleration in digitalization and has shown the importance of keeping up with trends that are here to stay. Voice technology is most certainly the next logical step for a variety of sectors. The beauty of SpeechLive is that there is no need to be tech-savvy at all. In fact, all you need is an internet connection – the cloud-based solution allows you to access your files anywhere, anytime. Your files can be easily shared with any of your co-workers without having to worry about exposing confidential data – all files are encrypted while recording as well as during the transmission process. Furthermore, they are also automatically backed up in the cloud.

Reduce time spent on administration

By integrating voice technology into their existing workflows, real estate professionals can reduce documentation time in half and focus on their most valuable tasks. SpeechLive offers optional speech recognition, meaning that your recordings can be turned into written documents even in real time – with a click of a button and within just a few seconds. All you need to do is review your files and you are good to go. No wonder it’s called the future of documentation! 

Work-life balance

For today’s busy real estate agents, every minute of the day matters. While juggling work and personal demands, a healthy work-life balance is what a real estate professional often lacks. Smart technologies can help anyone manage time more effectively these days and integrating the right tools will allow you to get the most out of each day – saving you valuable time.
