Interactive touch screen tech for window display

A large iPad-esque touch screen has been installed on the front window of an estate agency in Harborough.

The “through the glass” 24-hour touch screen was introduced at Henderson Connellan in St Mary’s Road in the town last Wednesday.

It is the first of its kind in Market Harborough.

The screen has already caused a lot of interest since its introduction.

David Hulett, the director of the town’s Henderson Connellan branch, said: “I’ve been really pleased with the response from the buying public.

“We have always strived to be a front-running estate agency in terms of innovation and the interactive screen is our latest offering.

“It’s important that we can offer the very latest technology available to the industry to our clients, in order to keep our offering beyond the expectations of our clients and above and beyond our competition.”

The branch was founded in 1993 and says it was the first company to include floorplans in its brochures, open-house days and the use of inspirational captions and storylines for every property it sells.

“We are finding more and more buyers, the younger and older generations alike, expecting more and more from the technology surrounding estate agency such as websites and apps,” added Mr Hulett.

“These clients are used to an instant reaction from a finger tap or swipe on a phone or tablet.

“They want control in their search for property, and not have to wait for dated technology or hope that the perfect property is printed on paper in our window.”

People can also use the touch screen to request brochures or viewings, view local maps or book a valuation for their home.

The firm has also recently rebuilt its website at www.hendersonconnellan.co.uk.
