GoConnect, Kadro Solutions, and Look-Listen collaborate to launch mobile app for real estate agents.

Feedback from thousands of real estate agents fueled the design and development of the intuitive new iPhone app, making life easier for the agent on the go.

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

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
