ShowPal Home IQ is an Amazon Alexa Skill that works with the new Amazon Echo Show. Using ShowPal Home IQ, Alexa is able to provide potential homebuyers on-demand answers to their questions — all while touring the listing. ShowPal Home IQ is also able to send important property documents to interested buyers or the buyer’s Realtor on request.
“Knowledge gaps about a property are common and this understandably leads to questions from a home-buyer.” says Chad Torstenson, ShowPal’s Founder and CEO. Simply, “We want buyers to leave a showing with offers, not questions.” says Torstenson.
With ShowPal Home IQ, buyers can ask Alexa about the home’s utility costs, comparable properties in the area, local schools or details around a home warranty. If a potential buyer wants to review the homeowner association documents before they consider an offer, Alexa is ready to answer.
Home IQ is the second of multiple planned solutions by ShowPal designed to make the process of selling, showing and buying properties safer and easier for everyone involved. To custom build these products and services, ShowPal engaged Trility Consulting, also of Des Moines, Iowa, to help design, build and deliver their cloud and on-premises based software solutions. Previous to the ShowPal Home IQ product, the ShowPal ID product launched 2 months ago allowing real estate agents to perform an on-the-go digital ID verification of new clients prior to meeting them at home showing sites.
Trility Consulting focuses on helping companies adopt, build and operate in secure enterprise cloud frameworks so companies can focus on serving customers.
