LeadingRE Announces New Cloud Initiative

LeadingRE Announces New Cloud Initiative
– Program ensures independent brokerages have easy access to latest technologies. –

CHICAGO – (February 7, 2018) – Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® announced at its Annual Conference in Las Vegas last week that it is rolling out the LeadingRE Cloud to give its 565 member brokerages in 65 countries an easy way to implement a wide range of the most innovative technology solutions available today.

The initiative is part of strategic relationships with DocuSign and MoxiWorks to deliver a new platform with integrated technology for agent productivity, marketing resources, back office solutions and more. The LeadingRE Cloud will offer options ranging from marketing tools – like real-time CMA (Comparative Market Analysis) presentations, virtual tours, custom print solutions and CRM (Customer Relationship Management) – to transaction management systems.

The LeadingRE Cloud is an open platform, allowing member brokerages to choose the service providers with whom they engage. “Our culture has always been one of choice, and that philosophy is integral to this initiative,” said LeadingRE COO Paul Boomsma. “Our members can choose the technologies that work best for their companies and within their markets, while benefiting from the power of this system to streamline implementation and day-to-day use.”

While choice will be offered in all product areas, DocuSign has been selected as the preferred eSignature and transaction management provider, based on the company’s ability to transact in 40+ languages, which complements LeadingRE’s global scope.

“We’re excited to be aligned with LeadingRE to further strategic integrations with multiple technology providers. Together, our goal is to streamline and accelerate the transaction so brokers can fully achieve the benefits of our Lead to Close vision,” said Georg Gerstenfeld, vice president and general manager of DocuSign’s Global Real Estate business. “And we’re doing it in a way that guarantees brokers maintain ownership and control of their data.”

Also integral to the LeadingRE Cloud is another long-time participant in LeadingRE’s Solutions Group program, MoxiWorks, which has already been embraced by a significant number of LeadingRE member firms and will power the LeadingRE cloud.

York Baur, CEO of MoxiWorks said, “The LeadingRE Cloud is a rare example of a network providing technology to independents. This new benefit delivers all the benefits of the MoxiCloud to LeadingRE members – more flexibility, digital lead to close, plug and play tools and services, to name a few.”

“The LeadingRE Cloud is only the latest in a series of investments we have made in technology on behalf of our members,” said LeadingRE President/CEO Pam O’Connor. “Other recent investments include Testimonial Tree, which gives our members a way to capture and share consumer reviews, and Moderne Ventures, an investment fund focused on technology companies innovating in the real estate space. We are excited about the role the LeadingRE Cloud will play in ensuring all of our members remain on the forefront with technology.”

Integration with the LeadingRE Cloud for both members and vendors will take place in the coming months.
