Welcome to the MasterKey blog

The MasterKey blog is a place where MasterKey developers, users, agents, managers and directors come all together to discuss all things MasterKey. We’ll keep you updated on what’s new in the software, pass along information as it happens and give you glimpses of our new MasterKey Beta that is under development. You’ll be able to post your comments the changes we’ve made, and let us know what we’re doing right or wrong. This blog has one purpose: To listen to needs of you, our users.

MasterKey connects with Dubai’s leading community website dubizzle.com for simple property listing

After successful implementation and extremely positive feedback from several clients, we have now made listing properties directly on dubizzle.com easier for all of our clients. As one of the region’s most popular websites, dubizzle.com boasts some very impressive statistics: Visited by nearly 110,000 unique visitors last month Three million monthly page views Nearly ¼ of traffic is directed toward the property section For these reasons, we have valued dubizzle.com as a key alliance and a major player in the region. We will offer a direct link from MasterKey to dubizzle.com, allowing you to list an unlimited number of properties for sale or rent on dubizzle.com. WHAT IS DUBIZZLE.COM? dubizzle.com was launched in August 2005, and has become Dubai’s leading online classified and community portal. Users, or dubizzlers as they are called, access the site to buy and sell anything and everything, including properties. The site also offers fun and interactive (not to mention useful) tools for anyone living, working, or considering moving to Dubai. WHO USES DUBIZZLE.COM? By listing your sale and rental properties on dubizzle.com, you will be targeting one of the most important demographics in the UAE. Here is a look at the average dubizzler: Between 21-40 years of age 68% Male / 32% Female Earning over AED 15,000/month 72% located in the UAE 40% Western nationalities WHY LIST ON DUBIZZLE.COM? By adding your properties and units to dubizzle.com, you will: Dramatically increase your sale/rental properties’ exposure in the marketplace, Target a demographic that is generally regarded as one of the most difficult to reach, Efficiently add and remove properties with the click of a mouse, with no additional hardware or software to purchase! HOW DOES IT WORK? Once you have selected the best dubizzle.com package for your needs, MasterKey will build a custom RSS feed that will automatically update dubizzle.com with your listings. When a new unit is added to MasterKey, it will also be added to dubizzle.com. When you reserve or sell a unit, it will automatically be removed from dubizzle.com, giving you real-time updates on the status of your properties. I’M INTERESTED…HOW DO I GET STARTED?

A look at the new version of MasterKey

A look at the new version of MasterKeyWe have been hard at working building the new version of MasterKey, focusing on speed, usability and customizability. We’re almost ready for release, and wanted to give you a sneak peak of what the new interface will look like. With the focus on usability, the new interface has been reworked to make MasterKey as easy to use as we can make it. Standardized across all screens, the tools are easier to find, information is easier to input, and your database is easier to browse. Grey overtones give this new interface a fresh feel without being too in your face about it.       What do you think? Leave a comment and let us know!

Joint buyer feature added for masterkeydubai.com users

Joint buyer feature added for masterkeydubai.com usersWe have a new system in place for join buyers! You can now link two clients to a property when selling it and have both names printed on the contract. Sell the unit as normal, and when you get to selecting the buyer in the transaction wizard, you will see a ‘Joint Buyer’ tick box. Click this, and voila! you can select the second buyer! Easy peazy.

Oh, and we went to cityscape…

Oh, and we went to cityscape…November 1st, 2007 by Karim Noseir Can’t miss cityscape! We seem to be some of the only useful real estate software in the Middle East. People were coming to the stand with variations on the story “Yeah, I asked around and everyone told me if I wanted the best Real Estate software I should look at MasterKey”. Which is true of course, we are the best (no false modesty there!) Anyway, MasterKey at Cityscape Dubai 2007 (we had to cordon the area off and shoo people off the stand for a clear shot):   Daniel explaining we have buttons:

A fond farewell to Ahmed

A fond farewell to AhmedThere’s a time for all things to come to an end. This month we said ‘Au revoir’ to one of our team members, Ahmed Bakry. He was the account manager for several of our clients and was a charm to work with. Good luck Ahmed in your future ventures, and feel free to stop by for a cup of coffee!                                                                                         Here’s a mugshot!
