Keller Williams Command Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software is a combination of different applications and tools that are developed to manage different real estate business tasks. Here are some applications that are integrated into the Keller Williams Command CRM software ecosystem.

Contact Management:

For a real estate agent, it is very important to categorize contacts and leads. Leads are the people about whom an agent has very limited contact information. In this case, communication is offer-based, one way, and focused on identifying what they want.

On the other hand, contacts are people that an agent has explicit authorization to have an ongoing connection with. In this case, communication is focused on starting a business relationship with the client and getting a response.

One of the challenging tasks for a real estate agent is to keep track of his or her leads and contacts. Here is where Keller Williams Command Contacts excels. KW Command Contacts allows you to keep track of all your contacts and leads and organize them according to your preference.

Keller Williams Contact syncs all the leads and contacts across all the applications within Keller Williams Cloud making it easy for agents to access their database.  Not only that, but KW Command Contact can also sync these leads and contacts to popular and widely used applications like Google G-Suite and Microsoft Office Suite making it seamless to access them for an agent.

You can create, edit, import leads, and contacts in the KW Command Contact application. This application also supports different software integration through PieSync. Through PieSync, other popular applications in the real estate industry like Salesforce, Boomtown can be integrated into the Keller Williams Command Contact.

Opportunities: 

“Opportunities” is another application in the Keller Williams Command CRM ecosystem. This application tracks an agent’s real estate transaction process starting from lead generation to closing the deal. Lead generation, making offers to clients, managing documents, communicate with potential clients- agents can do it all from this application.

Keller Williams Command Opportunities application allows the agents to customize their real estate transaction process. For that, the application divides the real estate transaction into five different categories- Cultivate, Active, Under Contract, Appointment, and Closed. 

Each of these categories is divided into several subcategories. This allows the agent to customize the transaction process according to an agent’s preference. 

When an agent creates an opportunity, a single record is what tracks everything related to the real estate transaction. Agents can drag and drop the record to their customized transaction categories as the transaction progresses.

Opportunities also give agents a deeper understanding of their current business and their pipeline and to get a hint on future business opportunities. Agents can see their listings, leases, contracts, appointments, and closed deals in real-time. Agents can even customize the reports on the Opportunities application so that agents can understand exactly what to do to achieve their goals.

To make the real estate documentation process much easier and as part of adding new features to Keller Williams Command, DocuSign, an industry leader in the digital signature service has been invited to join Keller Williams Command. This will help the agents to reduce the effort in the real state form preparation for different agreements and more.

Planning work and reporting is a critical part of the real estate business. SmartViews is an application through which an agent can search for customers through different search criteria that are set by the agent. For example, agents can look for customers with their birth date, or customers in a particular neighborhood, or customers who didn’t respond to their emails, etc.

SmartPlans are actions selected for these search results like make a call or, send a text message, etc. With “SmartPlans” agents can automatically perform functions like marketing, drip campaigns, including checklists, etc. There are pre-built plans that can be found in the SmartPlans library. This saves time for the agent and gets work done quickly. 

SmartPlans also allows customization to their pre-built plans according to the agent’s needs. SmartPlans allows agents to rename and change descriptions that are best fit to the agent’s work, insert custom scripts to make messages more engaging. Agents can also include a reference tag that captures details from a contact’s profile and makes messages more personal. The edited messages will automatically update to every lead and contact on the agent’s database. 

Agents can also create their own SmartPlans with decision trees. This allows the SmartPlans app to automate the agent’s marketing plan based on the criteria that are set by the agent.  Agents can also set delays, make tasks to perform by the app, change the SmartPlans conditions, and start a new one when the first one is completed or repeat the SmartPlans.

One of the features of SmartPlans is the ability for agents to share their SmartPlans with others. Many agents share their SmartPlans for free. But agents, teams, coaches can also sell their SmartPlans in the Keller Williams app store 

The user interface of SmartPlans and SmartViews is very simple and straightforward. The AI “Kelle” is integrated with the Keller Williams Command CRM.
