ImmobilienScout24 optimizes apartment search using real-time communication via "Messenger"
Berlin, 16. February 2017. ImmobilienScout24 now offers an even quicker and more efficient search for apartments and houses: from now on consumers can receive new property listings in real time via "Facebook Messenger". Furthermore ImmobilienScout24 offers another new real-time service in the form of instant notifications for the search via desktop or smartphone. The advantage: seekers will be informed immediately about new offers without the need of checking their e-mails, nor visiting the ImmobilienScout24 website.
Almost everyone has experienced it: When looking for accommodation, other prospective candidates are queuing up in the stairwell and pushing themselves with many others through the rooms. A large part of the housing offers is often only available on the market for a short period. It can therefore be an advantage to react quickly to those. Faster in the new home through real-time communicationFor this reason ImmobilienScout24 has built a service for "Messenger" which provides the customer with automated property search alerts via push messages in real time. For ImmobilienScout24, the ability to build new automated capabilities for "Messenger" will make it easier than ever to interact with people in engaging, new ways. "Users can now get individualized properties alerts delivered directly into 'Messenger' ", says Matthew Travers, vice president of consumer at ImmobilienScout24. He further adds: "For many consumers, Messaging Apps are the centre of their digital lives so it makes their property search simpler and more convenient to browse properties in this channel."
How it works:On the ImmobilienScout24 website, users can log on for personalized instant messages via "Messenger".
Web-Push notifications ImmobilienScout24 also offers another new real-time service in the form of instant notifications for the apartment search via desktop or smartphone.
