Consumers get closer to home with Rightmove’s iPhone app

2ergo has designed and developed an Apple iPhone application for property experts Rightmove, the UK property website, that will revolutionise the house hunting process for the millions of customers that use Rightmove’s property search.

The free app will enable customers to take advantage of the real time GPS function on the iPhone to find nearby properties available to buy or rent. The application will provide a variety of information, including address details, price, agent details and pictures. It will also offer the ability to forward the details of interesting properties to other interested parties at the touch of a button, as well as immediate access to the agent through a ‘Call Me’ button.

“With our leading smartphone applications’ development team, we’re all very excited about the prospect of being able to transmit details of Rightmove’s huge range of properties in one handy iPhone app straight into the consumers’ hands,” said Chris Brassington, group managing director at 2ergo. “This app has been created to enhance Rightmove’s ability to make house hunting even easier for its users. It displays the power of mobile as a marketing channel because it targets a user’s exact location to provide specific local property information to them on the move.”

2ergo has worked with Rightmove since June 2008. Improving companies’ customer relationship management through the use of mobile technologies is what 2ergo excels at and this innovative new app exemplifies that expertise.
