Share Branded PDF Reports with Your Clients

One of the many integrated features of the KARNES CPE system is the Property Traffic Analysis function. Many users may not be aware of this powerful feature.

While users are working hard to market properties, the Traffic Analysis feature provides useful insight into property traffic data for All or a specified Property by defined time frame, where/how the property was viewed and who viewed the property.

Beyond providing property traffic details, the Property Traffic Analysis function allows the creation of a PDF report that can be emailed or printed and can also be easily customized by adding company logos and headers.  Beyond personal insight, this report creates a excellent branded marketing piece to provide to clients to illustrate listing activity, or to use during organizational meetings.
