Mobile access, easier electronic signing, and fraud protection included in major Realworks update.

• Realworks received its biggest update in 7 years.
• A more portable experience with all-new mobile functionality.
• Protection against deposit fraud with SecureXchange

Realworks has been redesigned and made even easier to use in the most significant update the forms and contracts system has received in more than seven years.

The exciting redesign solves many of the pain points highlighted by the agents and property managers of Queensland, delivering easier navigation, new tools, and mobile phone functionality to allow for the tracking of forms while on the go.

David Howell, the CEO of Dynamic Methods, said the improvements made it easier for agents and property managers to work remotely, the importance of which has been underlined by the ongoing threats of COVID as well as the lockdowns and changing work practices that came with it.

“Lockdowns have really underpinned the need for agents and property managers to be able to work out of the office without losing any productivity,” Mr. Howell said.

“Agents have to be agile and have access to information quickly, so having Realworks on their mobile will allow them to quickly see the status of a contract that is out for signing and resend documents when needed.”

The Real Estate Institute of Queensland's (REIQ) CEO, Antonia Mercorella said the simplified layout, improved visibility, and portability of the updated Realworks delivered an easier, more efficient experience for users.

“The new look feels a lot more intuitive and easier to use as well as navigate, which together with the DocuSign updates and new integrations, makes it easier than ever for users to increase their productivity and reduce some of the stress and risk from their workflows,” Ms. Mercorella said.

One of the biggest updated features is that of electronic signatures, with improvements made to DocuSign and its integration into Realworks.

“The use of electronic signing tripled overnight post-update, with the improvements made to DocuSign’s functionality,” Mr Howell said.

This spike in productivity is prominent with Mr. Howell highlighting that 78% of electronically signed forms are completed and returned within 24 hours of being sent out for signatures.

Realworks also features a new integration with SecureXchange, an online platform powered by InfoTrack, that makes it easy to securely request bank details and deposits.

“We are very excited about the SecureXchange integration, it’s a great solution to protect against scammers and fraud of deposits which is sadly becoming an increasing risk in real estate,” Mr Howell said.

“Using the SecureXchange integration with Realworks, agents and property managers can request deposits, bonds and account details securely and without the risk of the information or money falling into the wrong hands.”
