Do you make the most of the internet? Technology moves fast, especially online. It can be tough to keep up but if you don’t, you could find yourself falling behind, leading to a loss in potential income.

Customers expect brands to be online, if you don’t have a website or a social media presence then you are likely to find that customers will go elsewhere, even if you have a well-established bricks and mortar branch. Our lives are busy, in a relatively short amount of time we have gone from a nation where every place bar the corner shop closed on a Sunday to a country which doesn’t sleep. The weekend is no longer a time for rest, we don’t have time for that, neither is the night time, who needs sleep when Tesco is open 24 hours! It’s all about convenience, the internet  took that up a level, why leave the house when you can do everything on your computer/laptop/phone/tablet, it won’t be long until your fridge will be ordering food for you…

The internet has affected most industries, including letting agents and when the majority of property searches begin online you need to be there too! It can be quite daunting, especially for those who don’t embrace this new world. We have a couple of additional modules available for Decorus for Sage users looking to either take their first steps online or turn your own website into a property marketplace which will work better than your shop window.


We have teamed up with website building specialists Castus to create the perfect website for your portfolio. They not only understand all the clever bits when it comes to developing a website but they know the property industry too. This unique knowledge set will give you the best possible chance of getting your properties in-front of the eyes of potential tenants before they turn to your competitor as they begin their property search, probably from home, on a digital device outside of your opening hours. Unlike your branch, the internet doesn’t open at 9 and close at 5, it is always open, giving those who also work those hours more opportunities to plan their next move.

Web Feed

If you already have a website but find updating your vacant properties a time-consuming chore then the web feed module is for you! Using your Decorus for Sage data which you have already inputted, this gives you an easy way to update your listings as it feeds the details online for you, no need for double entry.

The web feed also turns your website in to an easy-access contact centre for you and your tenants with a log-in centre to view documents and account history. This helps build relations with tenants whilst saving on time.

Don’t forget, Decorus for Sage comes with a built-in feed to portals. Simply link your Rightmove and/or Zoopla accounts up with the software and with just one-click your properties will now be in-front of a lot more eyes with minimum effort. To find out more about how Decorus for Sage can benefit you and arrange an online demonstration simply click 'Request Info' or call 0114 2307305.
