Process Improvement Plan

For ASPIS Real Estate

February 2012

Abstract

I have worked as an assistant real estate consultant in the organization ASPIS Real Estate which is responsible for preparing a comprehensive feasibility study for land, buildings, industrial, off plan properties, industrial properties. I was an assistant consultant at the time promoting sales growth with three other employees. The objective of this department was to increase sales, reduce implementation costs and increase moral of the staff while raising the overall customer satisfaction of the company. We were implementing new technologies to reduce the potential for human error. I spent one year in this position and the changes by the end of that year were implemented at all levels of concerns at ASPIS Real Estate. I have not worked in six months, but since policy implementation and improved responsibilities to all levels of the company have exceeded our expectations. This paper outlines suggestions on how to improve cooperation at work, how to measure if improvement is happening, and feedback mechanisms. However, these objectives have been achieved to reduce implementation costs and increase productivity.

Process Description

Conducting market analysis for residential real estate and evaluating that process is the section with the highest issues. To give a final picture of all products (properties) dealings in this section we try to provide our customers the most authoritative information, advice and guidance based on their needs. Yet to gather all this volumes of information we need all departments to coordinate between themselves. My role was to figure out an implement this process to save time and improve our customers' satisfaction. There were three employees working in this department and we had a huge amount of information to manage. The process of getting cross departmental cooperation was the most difficult part in the coordination of this project.

So we had to gather the information and present it to the broker stating-the professional "personal profile" of each customer. In this way we were facilitating the negotiation process of a sale, or purchase of the property. Since we had done more work preparing documents and necessary paperwork the process had been streamlined. Capitalist times became wrong but it is understood that the final decision was the broker and he was responsible for specific customers capitalist. So many times we were given control for extra writing and analysis. As soon as the documents are processed completely then someone in our department would transfer the data to begin negotiation with each customer.
