Leading UK Estate Agency signs up with Bango Thursday 7 December 2000 PDF Print 7th December 2000 Leading UK Estate Agency signs up with Bango to provide its customers with easier access to home information while mobile Partnership brings unique home-buying benefits to Carter Jonas customers Bango.net, developers of the Bango Number System for easy web and WAP access, announced today its most recent partnership with leading UK estate agency Carter Jonas. The technology will allow home buyers access to property information via the mobile internet, making house-hunting easy and convenient. Through the alliance, Carter Jonas customers will have access to technology from Bango.net, which delivers new WAP services, giving instant property details online. The technology, which will empower not only home buyers but also vendors, bypasses a common problem that estate agents are often plagued by - losing customers due to an inability to provide details out-of-hours and whilst people are on the move. And for buyers will help to overcome a lack of access to up-to-the-minute information on properties. "Anyone who has ever bought a home is familiar with the frustration of finding the right place in what little time you have," explained Jonathan Pearson of Carter Jonas, Cambridge. "Most people work and their time is limited. They may happen to drive by a place that is available, yet due to schedule conflicts, they may not be able to have a personal tour or get access to information until they get home. Bango.net’s technology gives our customers the ability to access information on a potential house from their PC, their handheld computer, even their mobile phone at anytime, day or night. It saves time and helps narrow down the search. "We also had to consider clients that are selling their homes through us. With Bango.net’s technology, our clients will be able to provide prospective buyers with up-to-date information on the property they are trying to sell, without needing reams of paper. This is a huge benefit to them." "Our partnership with Carter Jonas is a prime example of Bango.net’s ability to provide its unique technology to a variety of organisations through exciting applications," explained Bango.net VP of marketing Peter Walker. "Although our patented technology is complex, it is flexible enough to serve a host of industries. At the heart of the technology is a common denominator " to provide fast, easy pinpointed information on the net. The result is that everyone, from home buyers to large enterprises, can benefit." Bango.net, is the pioneer of the Bango Number System - the first ever web address system that is number rather than letter-based.
