RealOrganized, Inc., a real estate software company based in Colorado, recently teamed up with Google [stock GOOG][/stock] to synchronize the Internet giant's contacts and calendar services directly with RealOrganized's real estate agent software, RealtyJuggler. The synchronization enables agents to more easily access all of the software features directly from a smartphone or tablet device.
The software is exactly what it sounds like, a one-stop portal for realtors and all their daily business responsibilities. RealtyJuggler tracks and organizes clients, listings, showings, offers, open houses, promotions and closings, as well as securely shares data information with other business partners.
The software also acts as a kind of creative suite that allows realtors to print mailing labels, create real estate flyers and customize document templates to display a company logo.
RealtyJuggler is an online web application, so the Google synchronization marks an important step in an era where people depend on their phones. The upgrade is free to agents who already use RealtyJuggler; otherwise its $99 a year to purchase.
Congratulations real estate agents! You no longer have to lug around your computer to do business and you can work while you drive. You can work during your lunch hour and during your new baby's delivery. You can be just like the folks in the new Windows Phone 7 commercial. Really.

The financial world at large is experimenting with changing its workforce culture in ways not fathomable 10 years ago. For example, in 2011, the dress code for female workers at UBS came to light with unflattering results. In it, the Swiss bank instructed female employees on not just how to dress and how to smell, but also preached the importance for ladies to apply lotion after taking showers. Fast forward to today and fellow Swiss bank, Credit Suisse has now created an official role to boost equal opportunities and create a fair treatment environment. Has the American mortgage industry made similar progress?
