RALEIGH, N.C., April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- GoConnect, a real estate technology company based in North Carolina, today announced the general release of its iPhone application designed to bring mobile innovation to typical real estate Customer Relationship Management (CRM) tools.
With extensive experience in the real estate industry, the founders of GoConnect determined that the average real estate agent's workflow involves tons of sticky notes, paper checklists, spreadsheets, and notepads. The day-to-day shuffling of these lists and documents often interferes with doing the most important part of an agent's job—taking great care of their clients.
The GoConnect mobile application was designed by real estate agents to reduce this interference, improve workflow, and bring the focus back to meeting the client's needs in a fun, simple way. "I have been an agent for 13 years, I was tired of relying on people outside our industry to create solutions for us," said Zach Schabot, co-founder of GoConnect.
GoConnect was able to bring their vision of improving the lives of real estate agents to life with Kadro Solutions, a full service enterprise software development firm, and Look-Listen, a digital and creative services agency. Development of an industry-specific app included continuous feedback from thousands of real estate agents and multiple iterations, ensuring product quality and optimization for the agent on the go.
With intuitive interfaces, GoConnect's functionality is surprisingly powerful. It's elegant design and simple gestures help agents prioritize daily activities and manage contacts. It is easily customizable so agents can set up the app in just 30 minutes with no need for a computer. Everything can be done right from the iPhone.
GoConnect's partners brought innovative approaches to the process. Kadro's extensive software development experience and Look-Listen's design and user experience expertise provided the perfect blend of skills to make this project a success. "We assembled the perfect team for this project!" said Schabot. "A group of people who are genuinely excited about great software design and development. Working with Kadro and Look-Listen allowed us to feel more confident in the audacity of pulling off our first project on this scale."
The iPad and Android versions of the application are expected later in 2014. For more information visit www.facebook.com/goconnectapp.
GoConnect was founded in 2013 by real estate agents Zach Schabot and Jim Garman to provide an innovative, mobile alternative to the current CRM or transaction management solutions available to real estate agents and launch the GoConnect mobile application. Zach and Jim can also be found running Go Realty or Garman Homes in Cary, NC.

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos.

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates.
