SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 4, 2013) - Zephyr Real Estate, San Francisco's largest independent real estate firm, continues to forge the way in technological leadership for its agents. By moving away from the old method of local servers, Zephyr has embraced the newer cloud-based Google system that more easily integrates with other online applications, thus gaining a more cohesive, dynamic and robust experience. With the latest technology in hand, Zephyr agents have the tools to provide the best service for their clients.
The new expandable and flexible platform enables Zephyr agents to stay on top of all the latest trends. Integration with Google Drive cloud storage and other third-party applications ensures that market analyses, listings, pricing, changes and all relevant data are the most current, reliable and useful.
Google applications are structured and integrated to allow for a far more seamless sharing of calendars, files and all other material without worry about "version" control or copies of the same file existing in multiple locations. More importantly, the data is still secure and can be edited and amended in a collaborative method. Google is streamlined and perfect for the modern mobile work environment, for agents and clients to work together through each transaction, thus making it easier, smarter and faster to accomplish what is needed. A better web experience with the endless possibilities of the Internet itself means better business all around.
"We are pleased to partner with Google, a local tech company," commented Hud Bixler, Director of Technology at Zephyr. "We take great pride in being forward-thinkers, and providing the best tools and streamlined systems to keep our agents ahead of the curve."
