New Feature Release: Automatic Watermark on Masterkey Images

New Feature Release:  Automatic Watermark on Masterkey ImagesWe are pleased to announce the release of a highly anticipated new feature! On request, Masterkey can now automatically add a watermark to every image. Simply let us know that you want the feature enabled, send us a vector logo image (.ai or .eps), and we'll take care of the rest! (This feature will be available to Masterkey Premium subscribers free of charge. For Masterkey Professional subscribers, please contact your Account Manager for more details.) Here's how it works: Once you've provided your logo in the appropriate format, we'll convert it to a watermark image. We'll enable the feature on your system. Watermarks are enabled on a per-module basis (e.g. Sales, Leasing, Property Management), so let us know on which modules you'd like to have watermarked images. Every image you upload to Masterkey will automatically receive your watermark logo. Unfortunately, we can't specify which images do or don't have watermarks. It's all or nothing! Anywhere your images are sent, whether it be to your website, property portals, or your Unit Cards, the watermark will appear. Here are some samples of what a watermarked image will look like:         Contact your Masterkey Account Manager today for more details!

Masterkey Launches International Real Estate Sharing Platform

Masterkey, the UAE’s leading provider of web-based real estate software, formally unveiled Masterkey Connections today which will allow real estate professionals to form reciprocal partnerships with other Masterkey users worldwide to share each other’s listings and expand their operations. In building a reciprocal community of agents, Gulf-based real estate professionals will gain access to an exponential number of potential lead sources across the worldwide Masterkey community. Masterkey CEO Avinash Advani stated, “Collaboration is a key strategy in generating more business, and the Masterkey Connections feature provides real estate professionals with the ability to do just that – cultivate a community and generate more business.” Masterkey Connections allows customers who are part of the Masterkey ecosystem, to connect with each other and seamlessly share listings. Clients can simply choose who they want to connect to; if that person or company is a Masterkey customer as well, they then opt to accept the connection. At that point, each party manually selects which units they want to share with each specific partner. Upon selection, each party is able to view each other’s shared listings, providing instant access to a larger amount of properties they can offer to their clients. Masterkey believes this feature provides a timely opportunity for professionals to thrive in the region’s slumping real estate sector. Avinash Advani, Masterkey CEO highlighted this by saying, “While there are a finite number of leads that can be distributed to an agent from within an individual company, agents can broaden their lead base by simply looking outside their company and connecting with other agents at home and abroad.” Masterkey firmly believes that Masterkey Connections is the next generation platform for conducting real estate business worldwide and sees today’s announcement as a significant achievement in the company’s commitment to continually develop innovative ideas, products and services to better serve the global real estate industry.
