Having recently received both the Corporate Vision Technology Award for "Most Innovative Property Consultancy UK" and the TMT News Award for "Best for Renewable Energy Project Mainstream Solutions" the firm has continued to advance its services in 2016.
The development of a unique Land Mapping Consultation' service is the result of the firms pioneering use of GIS software (Geographic Information Systems), which allows the user to record, analyse and visualise geographical information and acts as a powerful referencing tool for agents and clients. This technology has proved particularly useful for agents when registering land titles, managing estates or in the planning stage of building projects.
Daniel Campanile, GIS Manager at CKD Galbraith, said:
As a firm we are promoting GIS as a tool for daily use to help make smarter business decisions and to provide visualisation of mapping data. Our sophisticated implementation has allowed us to work more effectively and to promote closer ties with industry bodies such as Registers of Scotland on land reform and title registration cases.
The firm's in-depth knowledge of GIS has also enabled us to offer a unique Land Mapping Consultation' service to estates teaching owners and managers how to create, update and analyse their own GIS data. We believe it is services such as this can help us maintain the status of being the UK's most innovative property consultancy.
Further examples of innovative services offered by CKD Galbraith include the firm's expanding use of drone footage and home tours in the marketing of property and land. Online home tours with videos and pictures are proving increasingly popular in the remoter regions of Scotland, where a large proportion of sales are to buyers nationwide. In particular, prospective holiday home buyers are using these tours as an effective and more efficient way to view properties without having to make unnecessary trips.
