When consumers browse boutique stores in 2016, odds are they’ll be swiping their cards and signing their names on an iPad instead of through a point-of-sale console.

Digital transactions are all around us, and the arrival of software and powerful machines on which to run it has allowed the real estate industry to adopt an array of tools to help manage and coordinate property sales transactions.

Like any other software, agents and brokers are spoiled for choice. Which ones work and which should best be left on the shelf? What do consumers (and agents) expect these tools to do that they are doing — and what could they be doing that they aren’t?

Inman is collecting feedback from readers about how they use and pay for digital transaction management tools.

For the purposes of this survey, a transaction management tool is defined as software used to coordinate the documentation and timelines involved in a real estate transaction, from offer to closing. They include e-forms with signatures, storage, task checklists and calendars, but might not include a full CRM or lead generation applications.

Tell us what you think! One person will be selected at random to receive a free pass to Inman Connect San Francisco as thanks for your time.
