Posted on January 21, 2014 by - New Features, SiteIndex, Tips & Tricks, Triad CIE, Triangle CPE, WNC CPE

Portfolios are a powerful feature of the KARNES Commercial Property Exchange. If you have been using them, then by now you have probably created many portfolios filled with properties for tracking, emailing, and generating reports. Advanced users have even created customized portfolios of their own available inventory and combined that functionality with the Broadcast Email system to quickly update all subscribers on their latest availabilities. After utilizing the portfolios for a while, you may have found that you have so many that it has become difficult to easily remove them. Well the KARNES development team is pleased to announce the availability of a Multiple Delete function for removing multiple portfolios quickly and easily. Here is an overview of how it works:

Discussion will center around economic development impacts that result from these employers and how developers can leverage the demand for supporting industries, housing and commercial real estate. The council will also investigate incentive programs and infrastructure requirements that are necessary to support the growth of these entities.

Feature Spotlight – Duplicating Portfolios

Posted on January 17, 2014 by - New Features, SiteIndex, Triad CIE, Triangle CPE, WNC CPE

When one of our power subscribers called into the KARNES support department and asked for an easy way to copy a portfolio, we were happy to assist. This subscriber frequently utilizes the Portfolio function of the Commercial Property Exchange to provide quick reports for clients to review and for tracking competitive properties, but wanted to utilize a portfolio of properties from a prior client for a new client with similar needs without performing the search again. Since each portfolio allows you to create a customized report with the client’s name when emailing and generating a PDF, duplicating a portfolio would be incredibly useful in this scenario. Fortunately for the subscriber, the KARNES team recently implement an enhanced feature for portfolios that can help save time and effort in this and many other similar scenarios – the View as Search option. Read on to see how this feature works.
