NEW FEATURES: pre-plotted plans and an enhanced user experience

16th December 2015

We have talked about the evolution of our commercial portal elsewhere in this newsletter. The lessons learned have been applied to our residential clients who now benefit from a number of fantastic new features; feedback has been positive with the updates offering significant time savings.

Mapping

  • Intelligent Plans

If the property is registered, the plan will be pre-plotted with the extent of the boundary making creating a plan a matter of just a few clicks.

  • Full Screen

Rather than a small window, the mapping is now full screen to enable complete oversight of an area and help with the outlining of unregistered and non-addressed properties. Additional parcels can also be included with just a few clicks.

  • Simple tools

If a plan is not pre-plotted, the flood fill and pencil tools have been improved to make the selection of the boundary quicker and more accurate. A simple zoom function helps with the identification of the boundary and enables you to have an overview of a large area.

A short user guide is available; please click here

User Experience

What if the ETSOS portal knew which of it’s features you used regularly and which were not relevant to you? What if it could remove those features that you didn’t use and left the ones you did?

In early 2016 a new version of the ordering module will be released that will hide the parts of the portal you do not use. The result will be a much simpler and cleaner user experience that will be more relevant to you.

We are, as ever, always looking for feedback so if you have any thoughts on the new layout please do not hesitate to get in touch with your Account Manager.

CPRs; the opportunity

In our previous 2 blogs we have covered the definitions of the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations (CPRs) and what the practical implementation of compliance involves. (more…)

CPRs; the practicalities

In our previous blog, we looked at the definitions outlined by the CPRs. In this blog we’ll look at the practical application of CPRs, the sorts of scenarios that come up day in day out and what lessons we can learn from any enforcement action taken. (more…)

CPRs; the implications

In 2014 The Properties Misdescriptions Act was repealed and replaced with the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations, otherwise known as CPRs.

The main change was a shift in focus away from caveat emptor, or buyer beware, to greater transparency for those involved in the purchasing or renting of property where agents are historically famous for flowery language and an economic use of the truth! (more…)
