Our Mission Is Simplicity

“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler,” is a famous quote that has been attributed to Albert Einstein. It’s generally believed, however, that he never actually said this; in fact, it was paraphrased by an interviewer in 1950.

I won’t delve into the actual wording that Einstein used, but the concept is that the fewest amount of details should be used to solve a problem, excluding everything that doesn’t expedite the process.

I learned this lesson many years ago in my architectural career. I learned that it was better to provide only the bare minimum of details when submitting a site plan or design for approval. Less detail, less for the reviewer to make comments on; also, the reviewer will ask for what they’re missing, all you have to do is provide it and you’re done. No guessing, no muss, no fuss.

We use this same approach when adding features to our software. We provide the basic requirements and we put it in our customers’ hands. They’re not shy about telling us how it could be better, so we do another iteration; we go from having parking, locker and storage, to customized items with an inventory component— problem solved.

I quote the “simple as possible” saying often, as a constant reminder to always strive towards an elegant solution, one that’s as simple as possible at the time, but dynamic enough to expand as requirements change. It’s generally in our nature to over complicate things, so this is not an easy task.

Simplicity is our mission and it’s what we strive for every day.

On Our Own Bus

I’m a fan of the shows Dragon’s Den and Shark Tank. They’re essentially the same show with slight differences: business owners try to convince investors (dragons and sharks) to invest in their business. The episodes I like the best are the ones in which the business owners are ‘on their own bus’ (is the way I like to put it), or as the would-be investors say, they are creating their own market segment. These are the riskiest propositions for all involved, but I like these episodes; I can relate to them.

In the beginning everything was simple. The software was simple, the pricing was simple, and the offering was inexpensive. Somewhere along the line the software became big enough, robust enough and expensive enough that everything changed. When this type of thing happens to companies that are on their own bus, the going gets interesting. Now you gotta justify the value, you have to try and figure out what line item on a balance sheet you might fit into when no such product exists—an interesting proposition. If you’re a bit lucky, stubborn as hell, selectively oblivious and surrounded by great people and have great clients, you can push forward and pave the way.

We’ve found that sometimes new practice adoption is driven by the owner, sometimes by sales, other times by marketing or admin and even by the CTO (yes, this has happened). You learn it’s not the position that matters but the particular type of person. The type that wants transparency or efficiency or data to make better decisions or less mistakes or a better customer experience. These types of people have the vision, confidence and influence to affect change.

Now we’re traveling to new countries and meeting with leading companies and thought leaders—and I can confidently say we are still on our own bus.

Being on your own bus means paving the way and pushing forward, standing in the face of no results and continuing to stand there. It’s one idea at a time, one line of code at a time, one feature at a time, that’s how driving the bus is done.

Identity Selfies, Security and Online Broker Sales

SaleFish Software is once again proving that they’re the industry leaders and innovators when it comes to real estate transaction software.

Having created the market segment and being the first to incorporate ID scanning and selling online, SaleFish is once again leading the way with identity verification and by providing the highest level of cyber security available on the market today. In addition, they’re launching a new broker application to further expand their software offering.

SaleFish Software is proud to introduce these new features to its software:

Identification Verification

SaleFish Online is integrating with a Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC) approved verification software. Now it’s possible to comply with FINTRAC requirements by digital means.

In October of 2019, FINTRAC made provisions for software to be used for the purposes of verifying a person’s identity on behalf of the reporting entities (builders/developers/sales companies). After doing extensive research, SaleFish Software invested in a partnership with a software company that offers end-to-end AI-powered identity verification and authentication. With this new software embedded in SaleFish Online’s application, SaleFish can now validate the front, back and content of a person’s ID and then the person’s face, using facial recognition technology, through the process of taking a selfie. The powerful software can recognize multiple different types of IDs in Canada and also in Australia, Germany and Turkey, supporting SaleFish Software’s initiatives in its expanding markets.

Cyber Security

As a real estate technology firm operating globally, SaleFish Software recognizes that it handles valuable homeowner data daily and it is now able to safeguard the information. SaleFish Software was recently certified by Cyber Essentials Canada, making it the first and only real estate software platform in the world to have achieved this level of cyber security certification.

Cyber Essentials is the most comprehensive annual third-party cyber certification process for business in the world today. Cyber Essentials certification requirements and processes are the global gold standard for auditing any business that handles personal data, with a specific focus on securing all types of data that interact with firewalls, secure configurations, user access controls, patch management and malware protection.

Broker Link

SaleFish Online’s new Broker Link is a valuable new layer that has been added to the software. It will allow new home builders, developers and sales companies to assign suite

numbers or unit specs or lots to a specific broker, multiple brokers or all brokers. Brokers will be able to access SaleFish’s Broker Link for real time pricing and availability. Content will include floor plans, lots, elevations, suite plans and floor plates. The broker will be able to submit a worksheet based on what has been allocated to them. Successful/approved offers will be converted to sales and the sales will be completed using SaleFish’s secure, end-to-end sales platform, including digital signatures for purchasers, witnesses, signing officers and others as required. The entire digital workflow is now as smooth as ever with remote signing capability and digital FINTRAC compliance.

It’s All Possible with SaleFish Online

SaleFish Software has extensive experience with online real estate sales and is the trusted solution for new home builders, condo developers and real estate agents all over the world. SaleFish Online is a proven method of selling homes, and the world has never been more ready to make the transition to selling online.

SaleFish Is the First Real Estate Platform in the World to Be Certified by Cyber Essentials Canada

Cyber security is of paramount importance, but it’s not often top of mind in the real estate industry. Worse, it’s ignored and underestimated. Many people don’t realize that there are significant risks in working with software service providers that don’t understand and have not taken actions to mitigate cyber security threats.

Cyber security is a cornerstone of SaleFish Software’s business. SaleFish Software was recently certified by Cyber Essentials Canada, making it the first and only real estate platform in the world to be fully certified to this standard (the only recognized cyber security standard in Canada).

“Becoming cyber security certified is a great achievement. Over the last year and a half, we have made it our priority to understand the risks associated with data security breaches. At SaleFish, we have addressed these risks through a combination of technology, training, procedures and policies,” said Rick Haws, President of SaleFish. “We can now say that we have the required knowledge and safeguards in place to protect our clients’ data. There are a lot of organizations that are using software and applications that are not secure and they’re putting their companies, their customers, and their reputations at risk. Cyber security is overlooked, misunderstood and undervalued in our industry, but we committed to leading the change.” 

Builders, developers and sales companies need to understand the risks associated with data security breaches and address them through a combination of technology, training, procedures and policies. There’s liability involved in partnering with companies that don’t understand these risks and that haven’t taken actions to protect against them – and companies need to know when they’re putting themselves and their customers at risk.

The rise of cybercrime has resulted in security breaches that cost organizations millions each year and put the security of organizations’ data at risk. Cyber security is of greater importance than ever before because cybercrime is so prevalent. Did you know that more than 28 million Canadians have been impacted by security incidents, many of them small and medium-sized businesses?

Furthermore, did you know that:

  • Data breaches can result in fines of up to $100,000?
  • Unauthorized access accounted for 58% of data breaches? Access control mitigates these risks and is one of the core components of our cyber certification.
  • One in four of all incidents of data breaches involved social engineering attacks such as phishing and impersonation?
  • One in five data breaches were the result of an accidental disclosure – the result of a document being left behind? A secure configuration mitigates this risk and is one of the core components of our cyber certification.
  • There’s a significant lack of understanding when it comes to employees being aware of risks and their privacy responsibilities? This applies to our competition but also our customers. 

As a real estate technology firm operating globally, SaleFish Software handles valuable homeowner data daily and is now able to protect its security. As a builder, developer or sales company, clients entrust you with important data. There’s a lot of important, highly private data that is exchanged in the sale of a new home or condo, and it’s important to keep it safe and protected. Your clients take their privacy seriously, and so do we.

Every builder, developer and real estate sales company should ask themselves: Is your homeowner data secure? The only company that can yes is SaleFish Software.

The only true way to protect data is to utilize a solution that’s secure end-to-end (E2E) with the required knowledge and safeguards in place. E2E security means that your data and your clients’ info are protected from start to finish. All data and communication from the preliminary source must be secure, all the way to the end destination. This is done by using the appropriate and relevant cyber security protocols to completely safeguard against any threat of third party intrusion. To achieve E2E security, security measures should be built in to the software you’re working with. That’s why it’s important to partner with a software service provider who takes your security seriously.

After being in this business for over 15 years, we realized that other companies in the industry aren’t taking cyber security seriously. Other software service providers don’t mention cyber security because they’re unaware. They’re collecting personal information on behalf of builders, developers and sales companies and don’t have the appropriate safeguards in place. In these current times, many in our industry have chosen to use tools that are known to be unsecure and they continue to use them – even as customer records are sold illegally online. This shows a lack of understanding as to the risks. For example, some software service providers reference 256-bit data encryption as security – this was considered to be secure 10 years ago, but it’s not now. If you’re a builder, developer or sales company and you’re using software with basic encryption, you’re putting your company at risk. Similarly, companies that are using DocuSign think they’re secure. DocuSign is secure, but the other software or processes that they’re using to populate it aren’t secure – it’s an open system and therefore is unsecure. For companies that are using these solutions, they and their purchasers are completely exposed to breaches and liability.

Partner with a software service provider who gets it, like SaleFish.

SaleFish Software can now enable any buyer and any seller to use the most secure digital platform to find and purchase a new home anywhere in the world. We’re the global leader in digital new home and condo sales, with a proven platform that has completed more than 150,000 transactions valued at over $55 billion in the last decade and with offices in Canada and Australia. We’re also a clear industry leader: we were the first company to market, the first to scan IDs, the first to sell online, and the first with identity verification. With industry leading innovations such as digital documents with digital signatures, ID scanning and identity verification, it’s possible to execute sales agreements in minutes and with complete confidence.

Our platform is all about simplicity and ease: it integrates seamlessly with your CRM or ERP platform, simplifies sales processes, and was designed to make the lives of our clients and their customers easy and carefree. Our clients’ success is our success.

SaleFish is the only real estate platform certified by Cyber Essentials/CyberSecure, the only standard officially recognized by the Federal Government of Canada. Not only is SaleFish certified with Cyber Essentials Canada, we’ve achieved Plus Level Certification. Cyber Essentials Plus involves 3rd party auditing, vulnerability scanning and penetration testing and approval by an accredited certification body in order to obtain certification.

Cyber Essentials is the most comprehensive annual third-party cyber certification process for business in the world today. The Cyber Essentials standard started as a government-backed cyber security process that was developed and implemented by the UK Government in 2014. Cyber Essentials certification requirements and processes are the global gold standard for auditing any business that handles personal data, with a specific focus on securing all types of data that interact with firewalls, secure configurations, user access controls, patch management, and malware protection. Cyber Essentials has since been adopted in Canada as a national standard by CyberNB, the only government-mandated agency in Canada to focus on growing its cyber security ecosystem.

“Seeing SaleFish take their award-winning real estate platform to the next level and enabling it globally to meet the highest global standard of data security is exactly the outcome we’re striving for each and every day at CyberNB,” said Tyson Johnson, Chief Operating Officer of CyberNB. “To the best of my knowledge, SaleFish is the first real estate platform in the world to have been fully certified to the Cyber Essentials standard.”

The benefits of this certification start with the highest levels of security for SaleFish’s customers: the builders, developers and sales companies who entrust SaleFish to manage their inventories and their digital customer experience. It also opens the doors to new markets that could not be accessed without this important check in the box.

With SaleFish Software, you can rest assured that you’ll get the best real estate platform on the market and the highest level of security possible. Contact us today to book your free virtual demo of our software.

SaleFish’s Real Estate Digital Sales Platform Goes Global with Australia Launch

SaleFish Software is excited to announce that it has opened for business in Australia. After over 15 years of serving clients and buyers all over the world in the global real estate market, SaleFish has opened offices in Australia to bring its innovative real estate software solutions to the Southern Hemisphere.

Thanks to a new partnership with Australian real estate veteran Tony Tadros, Managing Director for SaleFish Australia, SaleFish is now able to provide world-class levels of confidence and convenience to local buyers, builders, developers, and sales teams. SaleFish’s establishment in Australia starts in Melbourne, and the company plans to soon expand to Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, and South Australia.

A perfect fit for the Australia market

“We connected with Tony over a year ago and it was obvious right away that he had the same passion as we did for revolutionizing the real estate industry,” said Rick Haws, President of SaleFish. “The way the industry works in Australia is quite different, but the fundamental needs are the same. Real time pricing and availability, the ability to transact an E2E sale of a lot and home, accuracy and security are as valuable in Australia as they are here. We’re excited to bring our real estate digital sales platform to the Australian market and we have a great partner to do it with.”

The Australia real estate industry is embracing digital selling tools, which present significant benefits for all (both buyers and sellers). As Rick noted, the residential real estate industry in Australia is significantly different than in Canada. In Australia, developers have lots to sell and builders have homes to sell. It’s the purchaser who sources out and assembles the two transactions. SaleFish will be able to bring lot and model availability together to the significant benefit of all parties involved, and to transact both parts of the process simultaneously. 

Digital selling is the way of the future. Australia acknowledges this and is on board. Melbourne in particular is a well-connected and tech-savvy city (did you know that the city has free public Wi-Fi available outdoors?).

The Australia real estate market is strong and resilient, which is another reason that it’s a great place for SaleFish to set up shop. There’s currently strong buyer demand and an increase in new listings. What’s more, there are currently new government grants that support homeowners to make new home purchases.

SaleFish’s headquarters are in Melbourne, which is the largest city in the state of Victoria and the second largest city in all of Australia. Melbourne has a population of 5 million people and has the highest number of real estate sales in the country. It’s also ranked as one of the fastest-growing cities and is also widely regarded as one of the most liveable cities in the world. Because of this growth, there’s a need for 2 million dwellings in New South Wales and Victoria alone over the next 20 years, which means that landowners and builders will need a far more efficient and advanced platform to conduct their real estate transactions. In short, Melbourne is the perfect place for SaleFish to begin its operations in Australia.

Top 5 Takeaways from Rick’s Session at the Buzz Conference

SaleFish recently had the pleasure of participating in The Buzz Conference, a two-day virtual real estate and proptech experience in September 2020. The conference had over 950 attendees and an impressive calibre of speakers, including Sean Morrison (President of OREA), Phil Soper (CEO and President of Royal LePage Canada and Bridgemarq), Natasha Koifman (President of our partner NKPR), Amy Youngren (Founder of North Group Real Estate), Adam Stern (President of PSR Realty Resale Division), Christopher Wein (COO of Lanterra Developments), Brad Lamb (Founder and CEO of Brad J. Lamb Realty and Lamb Development Corp.), Lee Piccoli (CEO and Founder of Fusion Homes), Justin Havre (#1 Team RE/MAX Canada and #5 Team RE/MAX World), Warren Pentz and Lisa Reis (Lead Developer and Director of Marketing and New Business Development from our integration partner NEEZO Studios), and many more – including our very own SaleFish President and Co-Founder Rick Haws.

Rick joined the conversation to weigh in from a digital real estate sales perspective. When you look at how COVID-19 has impacted the buying process and virtual selling has become more prominent, this technology is paving the way.

In case you missed it, here are our top 5 key takeaways from Rick’s talk, “A Builder’s Guide to Simplified Online Residential Sales.”

Key Takeaway #1: Transacting real estate sales online isn’t a new thing for us

SaleFish has been selling real estate for 15 years, and selling online for 5 years. Many in the industry talk about selling online like it’s a brand new thing, but we’ve been at it for half a decade.

Key Takeaway #2: SaleFish simplifies online residential sales

At SaleFish, everything we do is about making things easier for our builder, developer, and real estate sales professional clients. We make the real estate transaction process smooth and simple. Essentially, what we’re all about is removing the layers within the real estate transaction – trying to automate every single piece of the process. More on this below!

Key Takeaway #3: There’s no universal definition of “online selling”

Online selling means different things to different people. There’s no agreed-upon definition, and some software, marketing and sales companies are being very liberal with their definitions – so beware.

SaleFish defines online transactions as an end-to-end solution. We offer end-to-end transactions, starting with real-time data on inventory and pricing, gathering and securing customers’ data, validating IDs and identities, and dynamically generating complex paperwork and facilitating a digital workflow. The entire process is within a closed system (environment), fully online and simplified.

Key Takeaway #4: Cyber security is SO important

Cyber security is misunderstood and undervalued in our industry. Security is not only about data encryption but also about a company’s policies and procedures around data – all of which are so important when it comes to online real estate transactions. What’s particularly unique about SaleFish is that we’re the only real estate company with a cyber security certificate from the Government of Canada.

Key Takeaway #5: There’s no substitute for time and experience

SaleFish has been conducting online real estate transactions for 5 years, and has been in business for over 15 years. What keeps us ahead of the curve are our years of experience, which have allowed us to continually finesse and improve our software, service and overall offerings.

Selling real estate online is more relevant than ever in the current real estate climate. In the past six months of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve seen more and more companies adopt online selling. As Rick noted in his talk, being able to sell virtually is a tool in your tool belt that you’ll want to be equipped with if you’re a builder, developer or real estate sales professional

FINTRAC Compliance: What It Means and Why It Matters

When transacting new home sales online, ease and security are two key considerations that we keep in mind when designing our software, to make the experience the best it can be for both our clients and their customers. We’ve made the process simpler, more straightforward and more secure than ever with digital ID validation and identity selfies – and they’re all 100% FINTRAC-compliant.

FINTRAC-Compliant ID Verification Software

In choosing the platform to integrate with for our advanced identification verification software, we at SaleFish Software made sure that everything was FINTRAC-compliant.

FINTRAC is the Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada, Canada’s financial intelligence unit. Amongst other responsibilities, it assists in the detection, prevention and deterrence of money laundering, receives financial transacting reports and voluntary information in accordance with the legislation and regulations, safeguards personal information under its control, and ensures the compliance of reporting entities with the legislation and regulations. FINTRAC’s financial intelligence and compliance functions are a unique contribution to the safety of Canadians and the protection of the integrity of Canada’s financial system.

FINTRAC acts at arm’s length and is independent from the police services, law enforcement agencies and other entities to which it is authorized to disclose financial intelligence.

In October of 2019, FINTRAC made provisions for software to be used for the purposes of verifying a person’s identity on behalf of the reporting entities (in this case, builders, developers and sales companies). After doing extensive research, we invested in a partnership with a software company that offers end-to-end AI-powered identity verification and authentication. With this new software embedded in SaleFish Online’s application, SaleFish can now validate the front, back and content of a person’s ID and then the person’s face, using facial recognition technology, through the process of taking a selfie. The powerful software can recognize multiple different types of IDs in Canada and also in Australia, Germany and Turkey, supporting our initiatives in these expanding markets.

ID Verification in Action

This means that when transacting real estate sales online, home buyers can simply take a photo of their ID and the technology will determine its validity, allowing buyers to submit their ID online for builders to confirm – and we can also authenticate a purchaser’s identity by having them take a selfie. Using AI, the software can ensure the selfie and ID match. The process is quick, seamless and secure – and it’s completely FINTRAC-compliant.

Protecting our clients and home buyers is our top priority, and this software is as good as it gets. We’re proud and excited to see this new addition to our suite of tools rolling out to more and more builders, developers and sales companies around the world.

If you’d like to see how this tool can work for you, contact us today for more info.

The Power of Collaboration: A Trifecta of Plus Group Companies Sell Out Brantford Project in Four Days

Since 1981, the Cachet Group (Cachet) has earned an enviable reputation as the developer and builder of master-planned communities across southern Ontario. In early 2020, the company initiated a plan to launch ParQ, its first community of townhomes in Brantford, a city recognized as a hub in Canada for post-secondary schools. It was an ambitious project. Cachet hoped to build a modern, self-sustained community of 150 homes in an area that is under rapid growth and renewal. Even so, the company was confident that with the right design plan, marketing strategy, and sales technology, it would appeal to target investors and end-users. With the support of three Plus Group companies at the forefront of real estate innovation – RN DesignCoolaid Studios, and SaleFish Software – Cachet was able to open the gateway for this promising neighbourhood during its launch in October 2020. 

In ParQ’s early stages, Cachet leaned on its partner of over 25 years, RN Design, to begin putting visuals behind this distinct vision, while considering cost-effective materials in the process. RN Design successfully created the development’s floorplans, 2-D renderings, and elevation designs. These had a modern feel to attract a younger end-user, whether investing in a new home for post-secondary living or to raise a family. With the elegant simplicity of large windows and over-sized details, the end result was a marriage between contemporary and traditional design.  
From there, RN Design worked closely with Coolaid Studios, supplying these designs for effective marketing materials and 3-D renderings, which in turn fueled Cachet’s brokerage (Spectrum Realty)’s sales strategy. Planning for a launch during the height of a pandemic, the marketing agency knew they needed a creative idea to communicate with prospective purchasers. With this in mind, they built a digital brochure that would take potential buyers on an experiential journey as they scrolled through. Seamlessly bringing users from local attractions to ParQ features, amenities, interiors/finishes and townhome options, the digital brochure evoked an immediate sense of connection so users could envision their future in this new community. 

One key to piece this all together was SaleFish Software. As a global leader in real estate sales software, we prepared clickable site plans embedded into the brochure, allowing users to browse specific townhomes in more detail. Separately, SaleFish Software also powered an entire online sales platform prepared by Coolaid so come purchase time, broker agents could process transactions online with ease, security, and the utmost efficiency. The cloud-based solution allowed multiple agents to sell simultaneously and see in real time what sales were in que to speed up the process. SaleFish’s technology made this virtual launch possible. 

“Our Priority Preview Phase Release sellout was made simple, fast and precise with SaleFish Software,” says Stephanie Draga, Marketing Manager at Cachet Homes. “From live siting, architectural control, inventory management and pricing adjustments, SaleFish makes the admin process effortless. Generating our agreement in seconds makes it a seamless process from sale to signing. A must-have for any project.” 

Rob Nicolucci, CEO of Plus Group and President of RN Design, explains, “The pre-existing relationship between RN Design, Coolaid Studios, and SaleFish Software as companies under the same roof allowed for fluid communication behind-the-scenes without having to involve the client at every step. It gave Cachet confidence in our teams to seamlessly work together, but more importantly, it allowed for incredibly strong productivity.” 

The end result? One of the most successful launches in Cachet’s history and all without a sales centre!
