In our Real Estate Investar (REI) case study we took a high level look at what these guys do and how we've helped them deliver a unique and powerful online tool for the property investment market. They've built an application that handles property portfolios and has broad appeal for property investors – whether they're actively looking for property or want to manage an existing portfolio.
CEO, Clint Greaves has been in the property game for a long time, and we've been impressed with his drive for the finish that saw the single biggest deployment we've been involved in get over the line. It was a massive undertaking but Clint had a very, very clear vision and knew exactly what his clients needed.
In order to bring his plan to life he needed data... lots of it. And financial data was critical to creating an end-to-end solution that would have ongoing benefits for his client base.
Xero was an obvious choice for the financials as it's web based, has a great API and a positive predisposition to integration.
We've done quite a number of Xero integrations now, but what we've done for REI showcases just what can be achieved when you pull information from one application and use it intelligently in another.
REI has three main tools: Search, Analyser and Tracker. Search helps to identify properties of interest then Analyser crunches the numbers and helps determine their viability. Tracker is used once the sale has been completed. It drags financial data from Xero to assess the performance of each property within your portfolio.
We've built the interface for all three of these tools but we're really excited about the Xero integration and how it reflects our passion for driving efficiency and visibility.
