Reapit wins Gold as Supplier of the Year at The Estate Agency of the Year Awards

15th Dec 2011

On Thursday 8th December, over 500 leading estate agents and conveyancing lawyers descended upon The Lancaster London Hotel opposite Hyde Park for The Estate Agency of The Year Awards ceremony in association with The Sunday Times and The Times and sponsored by Zoopla.co.uk.

The winners received their awards from celebrity guest, Ben Fogle who charmed the audience with some inspiring tales of his adventures.

 

The awards ceremony was the culminating event of a rigorous and thorough judging process carried out over a four month period by a panel of industry experts who assessed initial entry submissions before conducting an extensive review of the entrants which included hundreds of telephone interviews and mystery shopping exercises. The whole judging process was overseen by The Property Ombudsman; Christopher Hamer.

For the past nine years, the awards have become increasingly competitive with the standard of entries rising ever higher. These awards are firmly established as the most sought-after and difficult to win in estate agency. Over 5,000 offices were represented this year, but only the very best of the best were crowned as winners.

Reapit, winners of Supplier of the Year were delighted to receive the award.  Simon Whale commented “We are absolutely thrilled to be awarded this title, Its fiercely contested and I’m very proud of all the superlative people we have working at Reapit, who have helped us achieve this tremendous accolade.

We have been striving since we started to raise the bar of Estate Agency software and this is the culmination of that process.

None of this would’ve been possible had it not been for having so many amazing clients working with us on a daily basis to improve the product and our service."

The judges report can be found at : www.estateagencyoftheyear.com/specialist_winners/supplier and their summary of the winning entry was as follows:

“Reapit covers all its clients’ needs with a proven ability to design and implement bespoke systems and websites. It has pioneered the use of workflow functionality and automated many systems which saves time and enhances both the customer service levels and the ability for agents to spot key business opportunities.

Many of the Reapit team come from an agency background, giving them insight and understanding as to exactly what information agents need to gather for the benefit of the business. The level of products and services offered is remarkable with every indication that new initiatives are introduced only after careful research and consideration as to their ability to positively impact the bottom line.

The volume of agencies which use Reapit systems is very impressive indeed, in terms of number of offices across the UK and as a percentage representation of the top 50 estate agencies. Reapit view its customers as partners and it was evident to the panel that it delivers on all its promises.”

Peter Knight, Chairman of the event organisers Estate Agency Events commented “ The winners of these Estate Agency awards represent the top 10% of an industry where standards are hugely variable, It says a lot that so many award winning companies use Reapit to help them in their day to day business.

The Supplier of the Year award is unique, it doesn’t just contain Estate Agency software houses but covers the entire spectrum of companies providing services to the property industry. As you can imagine this is normally hotly contested, but the standard of entries this year was higher than ever and Reapit can be very proud of their achievement of being the best of these.”
