Potential buyers can call by the office day or night and have a Ripponden estate agents extensive property portfolio at their fingertips.
Whether its three oclock on a wet Wednesday afternoon or the church bells are melodically chiming midnight, house-hunters can find the property of their dreams at Charnock Bates in Ripponden, West Yorkshire.
And its not because the staff are now on 24-hour shifts theyre diligent, but they do insist on sleeping occasionally. Instead, the answer lies in the prophetic vision of company founder Stewart Charnock-Bates.
He has been working with a group of technical experts for a number of months on a bespoke product for his new office in Ripponden.
And now his innovation has been revealed for the first time, much to the delight of local property buyers and sellers. I believe this is the very first interactive web window of its kind, said Stewart.
Weve transformed a 32-inch glass window into an interactive computer experience, enabling 24-hour access every day of the year to our live website.
Potential buyers can call by the office day or night and have Charnock-Bates extensive property portfolio at their fingertips.
They can view property brochures online, together with photo presentations, giant floor plans and location maps.
They can scroll up and down, turn pages, zoom in and enlarge images with just the lightest touch on the specially designed window.
This is an ingenious, revolutionary concept exclusive to Ripponden and appears something like an enormous iPad, said Stewart.
The way in which this product is unique and different from other interactive screens is that information on other digital screens tends to be limited and often out of date.
I want to give our customers direct web access to expansive, live, up to date information, so that if a property goes on our website at 5.30pm on Friday, full details are immediately available on our web window.
I have always worked hard to enable Charnock Bates to make a significant impact on the property market and to be different, leading the way in marketing and technology.
Im extremely proud to launch the very first web window in Ripponden, confirming our passion and ongoing commitment to the Ryburn Valley.
