Alto rolls out highly requested improvements to core functionality

09th Nov 2023

Press releases

Alto, the leading cloud-based software for agents and part of Houseful has rolled out a range of new core improvements to its software.

Alto developing at scale

Alto’s engineering team has delivered over 100 improvements to Alto this year – including new features and bug fixes. All of these improvements have been focused on making Alto a more intuitive software to use and ensuring that it truly drives efficiencies for agents. This is alongside the Alto Marketplace, which now provides Alto customers with the ability to integrate with 15 leading prop-techs and tailor their CRM to suit their business needs. Recent additions include Bamboo Auctions, FCC Paragon and Canopy.

Hometrack data powers Alto ‘add a property experience’

Improvements include a new ‘Add a property’ experience – which is powered by Hometrack, the market leader in automated valuations (AVMs). This sleek new experience automatically pre-populates information when adding a property to Alto – adding best-in-class Hometrack data including valuation estimates, Google Maps locator, floorspace, year of build and energy efficiency rating.
This represents a significant time saving for Alto customers – who can now avoid looking up a separate system to source these key details.

Enhanced mobile functionality

Alto also now has property details available on the appointment page for Alto mobile. This feature was highly requested by customers and contains all of the key information an agent could need to prepare for a viewing including property images, tenure and EPC details.
Riccardo Dawson, Chief Operating Officer at Alto said: “The feedback loop we’re developing with our customers is stronger than ever before and it’s been great to turn their feedback into meaningful action through product improvements in Alto. I’m looking forward to further strengthening these relationships with our customers through the remainder of this year and beyond.”
