CREELiT

Automation of marketing materials for the real estate market: Growing users from 17,000 to 500,000 with a smart printer and integrated platform.

case image

AT A GLANCE

Our client benefited from an automated leaflet printing and packaging process. We developed a smart printer that automatically prints documents without human intervention using Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and other wireless technologies.

THE CLIENT

CREELiT’s online platform is used by more than 17,000 real estate agents in the United States to automate their marketing activities. With its ‘web-to-print’ functionality, real estate agents can significantly reduce their marketing efforts: an agent chooses a design template directly from the dashboard for anything from a business card to a billboard and then easily customises it with their own details. Subsequent printing and scheduled door-to-door shipment happen automatically and effortlessly. CREELiT allows real estate agents to focus on their core business activity.

BUSINESS CHALLENGE

Wayne Creel, CTO and Founder of CREELiT was ambitious to grow user numbers from 17,000 to 500,000. However, the company faced the limitations of its outdated system. As a result of the project, CREELiT achieved an increase in its customer base (from 17,000 to 500,000 users) and a 50% reduction in order processing time. Thanks to the smart printer, the company’s competitiveness and customer loyalty increased.

SOLUTION SUMMARY

Mr. Creel invited Computools to spearhead the digital transformation, identify bottlenecks, and enable growth. We conducted a strategy session with the client where we described the company’s current workflow, identified bottlenecks, process conflicts, duplicative and inefficient processes and concepts. We also highlighted the well-functioning and efficient parts of the processes to preserve and improve them. We then developed a phased transformation roadmap to replace the current system with a new one gradually.

An interactive Prototype allowed us to visualise and test a future digital product before building it. We made sure that our planned system was clear, user-friendly, and aligned with the client’s goals.

Using user stories and the behaviour-based development (BDD) method, we created detailed specifications for tasks and processes.

IMPACT

Our team has developed a solution for CREELiT corporate marketing automation. Integrating a smart printer with a leaflet packer that automates the packaging process streamlines and enhances the efficiency of marketing material production. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and other wireless technologies for seamless integration add to the convenience and accessibility of the whole system.
