<Comment from judge>
Online contract procedures are something for which demand has increased all at once due to the COVID-19 pandemic. RENOSY ASSET is designed to offer a real estate investment service that takes everything from property selection to contract signing, loan review, and income management online. The important thing when it comes to conducting high-priced transactions such as real estate online is securing the trust of both parties. Building a system to ensure transparency in the series of processes from gathering information on properties to the reviewing of process is sure to serve as a model when taking other operations and services online.
◆ RENOSY’s past and future pursuing a better customer experience
Based on the mission of “inspiring people with technology and innovation”, The Company has worked on reforming the customer experience in the real estate domain since its founding. The real estate industry is an analog one with paper-based materials and contracts as well as telephone/fax communications still in wide use. As such, the customer must also deal with the analog nature of the processes, and digitalization is a challenge. On the other hand, real estate is a high-priced product, so ensuring a relationship of trust between the customer and the company is a key point for ensuring post-purchase customer satisfaction and designing the experience. The Company got its start selling real estate but has been working on digitalization of various processes since its founding and emphasizing the utilization of technology from these standpoints. By placing the same level of emphasis on real services such as face-to-face meetings and proposals by agents, The Company has provided cutting-edge real estate investment services that combine real estate and technology.
However, the way things are done in society continues to change dramatically in response to COVID-19. Business deals addressing the new normal are being sought after in various industries, and non-face-to-face transactions that leverage technology are gaining attention in the real estate industry as well. The Company has been promoting digitalization of the real estate transaction process for some time and, under the current circumstances, was able to launch a fully non-face-to-face real estate sales 17 days after the declaration of a state of emergency.
The Company will work on further improvements of customer experience created by combining real estate and technology and promote research on building trust in non-face-to-face transactions in anticipation of the post-COVID-19 era. In so doing, The Company aims to create and share the next design.
