Why Estate Agent Julie Twist chose Sharp PAD PN-80TC3

The Sharp BIG PAD PN-80TC3 is an 80-inch interactive display is perfect for any retail environment, as Estate Agent Julie Twist found out to its benefit.

Julie Twist Estate Agents is a sale and rental property business based in Manchester, England. Set up in 1994, it has a range of offices across the busy and bustling city centre. The company has made a name for itself as one with vision, as it was one of the first to see the possibilities of a 24-hour city when Manchester started to re-invent itself pre-Millennium.

This knack for keeping an eye on future trends can also be seen in the innovative way Julie Twist has also incorporated the Sharp BIG PAD PN-80TC3 display into their store, giving customers a unique user-experience and setting the store apart from others in the competitive property sale and rental markets.

The Sharp BIG PAD PN-80TC3 is an 80-inch interactive display that uses a smooth and highly responsive P-CAP 10-point touch technology that allows up to four users at any one time.

This makes it ideal for presenting properties for sale and rent, as well as browsing Google Maps as the pinch and zoom features give instant response. Users can also tap for more information, while the 1920 x 1080-pixel resolution makes viewing images and video on screen amazingly detailed.

One of the key features of the Sharp BIG PAD PN-80TC3 for Julie Twist Properties was the ability to wirelessly connect the screen to mobile devices. Agents can share information from the BIG PAD on their iPAD tablets, while customers can connect and see the same information on their own smartphone.

What’s more, when the screen isn’t being used to show clients prospective properties, The BIG PAD PN-80TC3 also doubles as a stunning signage, allowing key company messages, news and other highlights to presented to potential customers.

Julie Twist Estate Agents chose Elementary Technology, a Sharp Europe reseller in the UK, as its technological partner who worked closely with the company to meet their specific needs. Julie Twist Estates commented; “From the outset, Daniel Handford (for Elementary Technology) was professional, knowledgeable and helpful talking us through every stage of the process. After a detailed conversation on the telephone to learn about our objectives, he visited our office and gave us a demonstration of the Sharp BIG PAD PN-80TC3 touchscreen. He spent a great deal of time showing us how this could benefit our particular business.”

“The screen now sits proudly on the wall at the back of the office and attracts attention from both outside and inside the office. We continued to work with Daniel who helped us to display some digital signage on the screen using the cloud-based Sedao digital signage system, which has helped us to have a massive impact on our brand awareness.”

“We also use the screen to promote videos of different developments, individual properties or simply areas of Manchester. There are numerous areas where the screen has been able to assist in our business including promoting our website and also being able to show a large scale map of the city and then drilling down to smaller areas and developments to help assist clients who are not familiar with the area.”

“In addition to promoting the company, the website and the city, the screen has many other uses including staff training, team building and even watching the odd game of England Football. We would definitely say the money spent on the screen was money well spent and feel it has enhanced the whole image of our company and has proved to be a great focal point for the office – thanks to the team at Elementary Technology.”
