MADISON, WI--(Marketwired - October 22, 2013) - Avid Ratings has been awarded the 2013 Gold "Vision Award" by Constructech Magazine for its Avid 3.0 customer engagement software solutions. The award was presented at the 2013 Technology Day in San Mateo, California.
Avid received the award for the implementation of its Avid 3.0 system at Portrait Homes of British Columbia, Canada. Portrait Homes (www.portraithomes.ca) uses the Avid 3.0 system -- GoSurvey®, GoSocial® and GoTour® -- to successfully market and sell new homes.
Constructech Magazine publisher Michael Carusso presented the award.
"With Avid 3.0, Portrait Homes of British Columbia is providing home buying prospects with a rewarding experience that allows them to tour homes, see products, select options to essentially customize the homes they're touring, and read customer reviews, all at one cloud-based destination. It's today's way of marketing homes that gives shoppers everything they need, whenever they want it, to move quickly toward that important purchasing decision.
"Portrait Homes is creating what Google calls a 'Zero Moment Of Truth' to engage and win over today's home buyer," Carusso added. "Delivered through integrated web and mobile applications, this ZMOT (zee-maht) approach has resulted in a dramatic increase in sales for them. The technology partner who has developed this game-changing system is Avid Ratings of Madison, Wisconsin."
Paul Cardis, CEO and founder of Avid Ratings, accepted the award.
"We're delighted to be recognized for developing new solutions that improve the way homes are marketed and sold," says Cardis. "Portrait Homes is a visionary client that has fully adopted the Avid 3.0 system, and there is nothing more gratifying for us than seeing them reap big rewards as a result."
