Garton Jones, a leading London estate agency, says that installing a Property SenseTable in its Westminster branch is creating a lively talking point with customers.

The residential sales, letting and property management agent recently installed the new interactive table which uses a 46 inch 3M™ Multi Touch Display as an interactive way for customers to search for and view properties.

Said key account manager for 3M Touch Systems, Chris Boulton: “Property SenseTable is a joint venture between 3M Touch Systems and Astec Technology and has been designed to help estate agents win more instructions and enhance the value they offer to their customers.

“There’s a full range of table sizes and designs to choose from, including large stand-at tables, coffee tables and desk embedded work stations. The system is based on cutting-edge, but simple to use, display technology and works by allowing users to choose property from an agent’s database by map location followed by other selection filters.”

The table is designed to respond to touch, using techniques similar to a tablet PC or smartphone, enabling full property details to be displayed on screen and shared around the table in a completely new way. The system also allows videos to be played and shared, identifies local ameneties, such as schools and restaurants, and enables customers to scan details of interest to their smart devices.

Said Kieran Chalker, managing director of Garton Jones, Westminster: “We’ve really noticed the difference when helping clients search for a property. Rather than the usual awkward situation talking across a desk, our team now grab a coffee and chat with their clients around the table while viewing our property stock, tube maps, YouTube videos and development plans. They end up building a great rapport with people and really understand what their needs are; it’s a real talking point and I’m confident it helps to secure more business too.”
