I've been using Apto for several years, and I immediately saw value in the software. It’s a great way to organize and leverage information. The system is aligned with my business as a broker, and with Apto the otherwise high entrance barrier to a new database was eliminated.Prior to Apto I was using FileMaker which was not meeting my needs. I evaluated a few different systems and chose Apto because it was architected for commercial real estate. Also, it was not cost prohibitive and it was easy to set up.
I've found it immensely helpful to my business and I use it every day. It integrates with other systems I use which allows me to do mapping and create market studies. Business intelligence is key in commercial real estate and I appreciate the analytics and data visualization I’m able to see with Apto. I can easily query the database to find properties that meet buyer's needs, and it’s also a great way to track inventory of potential properties to sell.
I see Apto as a sales advantage. It saves time and helps us serve our clients better, which also translates into more revenue. We are extremely pleased with Apto and highly recommend it to other commercial real estate brokers.
