Universal is a cost effective residential lettings software system, which has been designed to be simple to use but effective in helping letting agents and property management companies manage their offices, and get property details to customers quickly and economically.
There are several software packages on the market, with most of them requiring a substantial financial investment up front (especially to get a copy on each PC in the office), hefty ongoing charges and long contractual commitments.
With Universal there is no large upfront fee to find, the licence is branch based so all PC's in the office can have a copy and no minimum contract period.
* Available at an extra cost
Universal (Rentals) retails for a small monthly payment per branch and includes telephone support, property search for your website, branch synchronisation and upgrades. The additional costs of leased lines is not required, as all property details are automatically synchronised between branches via the Internet so all properties from all offices can be displayed and printed in any branch.
There is also a property search screen that can interface with touch screen technology, allowing your customers to search all properties from all branches themselves.

Sophisticated applicant matching and emailing can save thousands of pounds a year in printing and mailing costs, and ensures that property details (including full details and images) are sent to customers quickly and efficiently. Match new properties to all existing applicants and e-mail them all in seconds with full property particulars. For applicants without e-mail addresses or do not wish to be contacted by e-mail, the applicant matching can produce summary sheets with images for traditional posting.
New applicants can also be matched with existing properties in the same manner. When a customer receives an e-mail, summary descriptions of all properties with an image are displayed in the received e-mail (the images are linked seamlessly from Thesaurus servers and are not sent with each e-mail, as the overheads needed in bulk emailing would be excessive). A full description hyperlink is also available for each property, displaying all internal room descriptions and additional images.
The package includes a customisable property search for your company web site and the ability to update it instantaneously at the click of a button. There is no need to change your ISP/Webmaster as Thesaurus can supply the code needed to imbed in your existing site. Click here to see examples of live customer property searches.
