Agent Image, the real estate technology division of The Design People Inc. and market leader of custom-designed real estate websites, today announced the official launch of the AgentSuite 4.0 platform — the newest release of its website management and Internet marketing system for real estate agents. This marks the company’s first major release of 2008 and the fourth generation of AgentSuite. AgentSuite 4.0 provides more than 100 on-demand, state-of-the-art CRM and CMS real estate solutions for property listings management, virtual tours, community pages, mortgage information, multiple listing service integration, statistics tracking, marketing and campaign management, site analytics, and real estate document storage.

“We spent months listening to customers since the soft launch of the AgentSuite 4.0 platform back in December 2007. In April 2008, we reached a point where AgentSuite has truly become the enterprise-level system of choice for the power real estate agent,” said Tait Grove, The Design People Inc.’s Chief Technology Officer. “With this release, Agent Image customers now have a branded website and marketing system that can grow as fast as their real estate business. Our goal is to continue to be a market leader in real estate technology innovation through relentless product development on our proprietary AgentSuite 4.0 platform.”

The software-as-a-service model automatically delivers the benefits of the new release to Agent Image customers worldwide who no longer need to worry about how to keep up with technology, updates or upgrades. Representing more than $1 million in research and infrastructure investment, AgentSuite 4.0 offers a suite of scalable, on-demand features such as web page editing, image uploads, lead management, custom design templates, dynamic page layouts, and customer relationship management for agents and brokers.

Luigi Amante, The Design People Inc.’s Chief Operations Officer said, “The difference with the latest system is every customer benefits from tools that are added every quarter — all which greatly improve a real estate agent’s ability to reach new prospective customers, maintain a beautiful website, and carefully cultivate relationships with homeowners and buyers until the time they choose to sell or buy a home.”

AgentSuite 4.0 gives customers control over front end and back end customizations. The system allows agents and brokers to extend the database and build custom applications, web pages and forms without requiring any of their own infrastructure or hardware. In addition, AgentSuite 4.0 integrates with Internet marketing services The Design People, Inc. has developed as an Authorized Reseller for Googleâ„¢ Adwords advertising program making it a powerful online marketing combination.

“Since January 2008, Agent Image has launched hundreds of AgentSuite 4.0 websites every single month,” said Jon Krabbe, The Design People Inc.’s Chief Financial Officer. “Results have been solid across all of our major cities, and our business has remained strong among real estate professionals despite the state of the mortgage industry. We attribute this to our strong customer base of top producers, boutique realty firms, luxury estate brokers and agents – many of whom are very marketing savvy and remain relatively unaffected by the downturn in the sub-prime segment. Up or down, the real estate market will always need property advertising. Nowadays, the Internet is the first place people begin looking for their next house and it’s clear that our clients know it.”
