The Western NC CPE Just Keeps Getting Better

Posted on March 28, 2014 by - Asheville, Commercial Property Exchange, New Features, Western NC, WNC CPE

Over the past few months the KARNES team has been working diligently to enhance the Western North Carolina Commercial Property Exchange (Western NC CPE) and we are pleased to provide you a with an overview of the many new features and upgrades that have been put in place.

Brochures

We are continually looking for ways to improve our brochure creation process and a lot of effort went into making these even better over the past few months. Streamlining the process of creating a brochure was implemented as well as the following key upgrades:

Add Listing Flyers

Looking to create a comprehensive package to take to your client? Look no further than this new feature to Brochures. With the simple click of a button, you can now include all flyers (PDF only) attached to any listing. This works when creating a Brochure of a single listing or even a Brochure from a portfolio of listings. All listing flyers are included in the correct order allowing you to quickly email or print all information on a listing or set of listings.

Add a Flyer

Unit Details on One Page

Looking to create a Brochure for a listing that has many units? This new features allows you to include all of the unit details for any listing on a separate page. Great for those office towers!

Append Unit Page

Transaction Details on One Page

Are you looking to create a Comp Brochure for a property with multiple transactions? Then the new Transactions Details option will allow you to add one page to any Brochure that includes all of the transactions recorded on a single property.

Mapping

Mapping is crucial to commercial real estate and the Western NC CPE is always seeking to improve how we view and find properties when using a map. We are please to announce that the entire mapping platform was upgraded over the past few months and has resulted in faster speeds, better support for mobile and newer bowsers, better geocoding and much more, including the following:

Street View Available on All Maps

With this latest upgrade you can now access Google’s Street View feature when viewing any map on the Western NC CPE. Simply click on the Street View Man and position on the road you would like to view and that’s all there is to it!

Street View WNCCPE
Improved Polygon and Radii Searches

Polygon and Radii map searches are among the most powerful features of the Western NC CPE and we’ve only gone and made them better! When searching, simply click on the Map tab and select from either the Polygon or Radii to begin utilizing this feature. We’ve made the creation of polygons and radii even smoother in this new version and you can even fine tune your polygon or radii after you’ve performed a search. Did you work hard to create the perfect polygon? Be sure to save your search to utilize it over and over again!

We Didn’t Stop There!

In addition to these great new features, we also fine-tuned and upgraded many other areas of the Western NC CPE. Below is a list of changes (not comprehensive) that have been made:

• Added a pagination bar to the bottom of the screen when more than 5 results per page selected

• Created a method to allow users to define default search result display (number of listings per page, etc.)

• Upgraded coding to work better with the latest browsers

• Added traffic analysis and transaction analysis to the main navigation menu

• Added option to allow for the creation of a PDF of traffic analysis

• Added ability to delete multiple portfolios

• Show Listing Details on Private Listing to Listing Owner Only

• Added option to sort a Portfolio by Sale Price Per SF or Acre

• Economic Developer Link adjustments to allow for customization of style and support for additional query parameters

 

And We Are Just Getting Started

These are just a sampling of the new features and upgrades to the Western NC CPE over the past few months, but we are not stopping there. Expect many more things to come during 2014!

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.
