Site draws targeted home buying traffic direct to homebuilder websites.
Vancouver, Canada – (September 9, 2009) – Lasso Data Systems, a premier developer of customer-relationship management (CRM) software for homebuilders and developers globally, today announced a partnership with NewHomesDirectory.com to sell the site’s internet directory services to its clients throughout North America, with an exclusive reseller agreement for homebuilders in Canada. NewHomesDirectory.com is a leading-edge developer of revolutionary internet applications for real estate sales and marketing, including one of the top online directories devoted to connecting consumers with new home builders and developers in their area.
The partnership marks the first time NewHomesDirectory.com has made its products available outside the United States, with initially six major directories available through the site serving regions within British Columbia (Vancouver), Alberta (Calgary, Edmonton), Ontario (Toronto, Ottawa) and Quebec (Montreal). Other internet marketing products available from NewHomesDirectory.com include NHDBuzz.com, a portal enabling builders to post press releases on their projects free of charge, and NewHomesDirectory.tv, which offers high-definition video profiles of new home communities.
“NewHomesDirectory.com and Lasso both play critical roles in the new home sales process,” said Jim Adams, CEO of NewHomesDirectory.com. “NewHomesDirectory.com drives high quality traffic to builder websites, while historically Lasso’s focus has been on CRM solutions, invaluable technology for builders who want to properly manage and close the leads generated from that traffic. This is an attractive proposition for builders because Lasso’s partnership with NHD will help Canadian homebuilders to reach more interested buyers and to manage their prospect database. By taking advantage of NewHomesDirectory.com through Lasso, Canadian homebuilders can now connect with the thousands of consumers searching for new homes throughout Canada and generate some of the most qualified leads available to sales agents.”
The NewHomesDirectory.com partnership marks a new stage in the growth of Lasso Data Systems, moving forward in supporting its customers not just with CRM technology solutions but with proactive online marketing and sales strategies that include directory services and consumer traffic, website and search engine optimization (SEO), plus lead intelligence & nurturing. The new marketing offerings will be offered both in addition to and separate from Lasso’s core CRM solution.
“Working together with Jim Adams and the team at NewHomesDirectory.com is a natural extension of the missions of both companies,” explained Dave Clements, CEO of Lasso Data Systems. “With more than eighty percent of homebuyers starting their research online, we hope to strengthen the value and the connection we offer homebuilders and developers by providing targeted traffic, innovative online marketing services and a CRM solution custom built for the real estate industry. NewHomesDirectory.com provides a clean and easy to navigate information source for consumers that is also an extremely economical way for builders to generate revenue through precise and targeted online traffic.”
