There are some things that every professional in that industry needs to guard with their life. Construction workers guard their tools; brokers guard their contacts. No matter where they go, brokers need to have their contacts readily available. We understand how much blood, sweat, and tears went into compiling your book of business. This is why Digsy provides a simple, but easily customizable method of exporting your contacts.
We all know the annoyance of logging into your email and being greeted by a mandatory password change. In reality, it doesn’t take very much effort to change a password, maybe 30 extra seconds. But those 30 seconds broke your routine. And for busy professionals, their routine is sacred.
We’ve taken a big step in returning control over your routine by allowing you to reply directly from the activities feed. You can take your time on a heartfelt response, or you can quickly shoot out an email template. Regardless of your choice, you no longer have a clunky system forcing you to dance between windows.
There’s an old spanish proverb that states, “Each mind is its own world”. Digsy AI has assembled a brilliant team of designers and developers to create the platform that you know and love. But, we cannot begin to fathom all of the different approaches that each broker will use in their daily workflow.
This is why, we’ve taken the popular tagging feature and maximized its potential. Our newly upgraded tagging allows you to efficiently group and organize multiple prospects at once. You can create as many tags to streamline your workflow. Tagging was already incredibly powerful in a singular form. Now it’s been multiplied to meet the demands of even the most prolific prospectors.
Xceligent bankruptcy – It’s a sad day in the commercial real estate data technology world, as CoStar’s biggest (and pretty much only) competitor, Xceligent, has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy and decided to close its doors effectively immediately.
If you try to visit www.xceligent.com, you’ll be presented with a dead page that looks like this:
When CoStar acquired LoopNet in 2012, it was required that CoStar sell some assets to Xceligent in order for CoStar to have a worthy competitor in the marketplace and not become a monopoly. However, this was not enough. The commercial real estate data business is brutal and extremely capital expensive. Just look at CoStar’s public financial filings and you’ll notice just how many resources go into researching, collecting data in order to provide the service. Xceligent and Digsy AI were working on a partnership and during the many of the conversations we had, we talked about how hard they work and the many financial-and-human resources that go into providing the service. CoStar sued Xceligent claiming that Xceligent was illegally getting data from their CoStar data suite. When the judge found evidence of fault with Xceligent, it forced Xceligent to pay up to $20,000 per incident. That’s a crazy fine considering how many listings and buildings there are — so naturally, it’s no surprise to see Xceligent go. After this, Xceligent booted Doug Curry as CEO, and replaced him with Frank Anton.
