ECI Launches Online Lot Reservation Functionality in LotVue

New feature allows home builders to offer online, self-service capabilities to customers

ECI Software Solutions, a leader in cloud-based business management solutions, today launched an online lot reservation functionality for its LotVue® lot management software. LotVue interactive site maps now allows home buyers to search for lots and reserve them on home builders’ websites.

In the growing digital age, consumers expect to do almost everything online – including home buying. For home builders, providing their clients with the technology to meet their expectations to seamlessly search for lots online is a must-have. LotVue provides home builders with the tools to engage buyers through interactive site maps with comprehensive floor plans and real-time information, like lot status and price. Powered by NET1 credit card processing software, home buyers can choose the lot they would like to reserve and input their credit card information to secure their spot.

With the addition of LotVue’s online lot reservation functionality, home builders can create a sense of urgency for potential home buyers and speed up the sales cycle. Once a lot is reserved, the buyer’s contact information and lot status is populated across ECI’s MarkSystems® and Lasso® CRM software. This end-to-end integration enables a seamless experience and removes the manual process of ensuring their CRM and back-office software are in sync with LotVue.

"The ability to reserve a home online has been a groundbreaking feature. This brings us a step closer to the future of home buying and meeting the online experience our customers have adapted to over the course of the pandemic," said Nick Rhodes, President & CEO of Esperanza Homes. "We've seen great adoption from home buyers and it's been an effective way to get very qualified leads to convert for our online sales team as well."

"Home builders must meet the needs of the next generation of home buyers as they want greater transparency and self-serve features on the builder's website,” said Rajan Krishnamurty, LotVue Business Unit Leader at ECI. “By adding the online lot reservation functionality to LotVue, ECI is leading the way by giving builders what they need to satisfy their buyers and address their top priorites – converting more leads and driving more sales."
