Connect Now was founded in 2015 by real estate professionals who understood the importance of receiving quality leads but were frustrated that they couldn't see how fast and in what manner their agents were responding to those leads.
The lack of an adequate tool prompted them to create a lead management platform that can track and, as a consequence, improve conversion rates, response times, transparency, and the overall sales experience for both - agents and consumers.
Today, Connect Now is proud to serve the real estate industry and any organization that deals with many incoming sales leads and wants to gain more control over their sales teams' lead response time. Connect Now helps companies achieve competitive speed to lead, resulting in high conversion rates that allow sales people to close more deals!
