Oryx Real Estate Website wins CNBC award for best real estate website!

We are proud to announce that Oryx Corporation have won the prestigious CNBC Award for Best Real Estate Website for the Middle East. The Oryx Corporation website (www.oryxrealestate.com) incorporates many of the latest Web 2.0 features such as Podcasts, Blogs, RSS, as well as some fantastic improvements on the traditional property website features. For example, their preferred projects section is really quite extraordinary. The effort taken to present these select projects is 2nd to none – particularly for an estate agency.

In addition the Dubai Life magazine is also a very interesting attempt to take a quite quality glossy magazine online. Incorporating editorial and listing, it is a unique experience and one that I think has the potential to extend even further how the interent is used by real estate agents around the world.

Congradulations to our team of designers and developers. This is a fantastic example of the high quality work both Brightfox and our network of Certified Partners do, and it is great to see the client winning awards for our work.

Brightfox Attends AREC08 Exhibition

The AREC exhibition was held again this year on the 25th and 26th of May at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre.

AREC08 – also known as the Australasian Real Estate Conference 2008 was a sold out event, with 2,500 real estate business owners, elite sales people and property managers, from around Australia attending.  The event incorporated business management, sales and property management together under the one umbrella.

Brightfox was privileged to be an exhibitor at the event, and found it a great experience overall.  Not only were we able to meet up with many of our industry leading clients, but received an incredibly strong response from our booth, with several new clients coming on board.

We look forward to taking part next year.

foxEnterprise Version 6.2

As we’re coming up to the end of April (where did it go?), so too is the latest monthly release of foxEnterprise.

Version 6.2 will have some really exciting new features and enhancements which we will be delighted to announce to our clients and Brightfox Certified Partners this week. 


Brightfox attends UDIA Congress

Brightfox took part in the annual UDIA National Congress this year, which was held in Melbourne’s Crown Towers in early March.

This has been the second event that Brightfox has exhibited this year.  In February we attended the Dubai International Property Show which drew a crowd of approximately 30,000 visitors.

While the UDIA Congress involved fewer numbers, it made up for in the calibre of attendance.  Rather than an out and out trade event, the UDIA Congress was a gathering of all industry greats to conduct an annual conference about urban development in Australia.  It was a privilege to attend, and a great opportunity to meet our current and potential clients in both formal and informal surrounds. 

We look forward to our next event, which will be the AREC convention in Sydney during May.
