With the help of our expert business advice and financial planning, leading estate agent Abode Midlands recently launched the UK’s first virtual reality (VR) service at the intu Derby shopping centre, enabling potential house buyers to view properties without even setting foot through the door.
We have assisted Abode with tax, payroll, VAT returns and annual accounts, as well as being able to help the company capitalise on company investment in technological innovation and improve profitability.
As the multi-site business developed, Managing Director Nathan Anderson-Dixon, turned to us for support and took advantage of our range of high quality, value-driven accountancy services, including financial planning and advice.
We have given the team at Abode the confidence to adapt and restructure their business to compete within a changing market and even helped source some of the technology for the new virtual reality home-buying experience.
It really is fantastic to see an estate agent go the extra mile and create an element of entertainment for its clients through virtual reality viewings.
Nathan’s decision to open a branch of Abode in a shopping centre was easy to make as they had already centralised many of their processes, including sales progression and administration. In choosing to embrace immersive VR technology, they have demonstrated a determination to build market share by staying one step ahead of the competition.
Introducing the technology to intu Derby enabled Abode to challenge traditional models and is proving to be a real winner. We really are looking forward to watching Abode achieve their objectives and become a success.
