Transforming floorplans for Countrywide PLC

The development of a new sketching tool gives national estate agency group, Countrywide PLC, a faster and more intuitive way to draw floorplans used for marketing a property. The tool is customised for Countrywide’s needs and includes the development of new features and removing redundant ones.

To help make this process even simpler and smoother, we built in a data recorder so information from each room can be included automatically into the sale particulars.

Our approach

We listened to Countrywide’s request for a program that would help them create consistent floorplans with minimal training. Our recommendation was for a simple sketcher with restricted functionality that would be tailored to their specific needs and ways of working.

The solution

Our sketching tool is embedded into a tablet program specifically for Countrywide, which makes saving sketches and photos quick and easy. All sketches are permanently linked to a specific property and data from the sketch is then easily included in the property particulars.

The Result

Countrywide plc now has a highly efficient way to draw floorplans and collect the data they need for property particulars. Having a more efficient work flow that’s simple to use and with a low training overhead suits their needs perfectly.
