Introduction to Nexus
Collaborate with your team in the Cloud
Do you want your report building to become a team effort?
Your Nexus reports are built in a Cloud location – which enables a range of collaborative opportunities to improve your appraisal company’s efficiency, quality control, and training.
Anyone with access to Nexus can watch or assist as your report is built, data is added, and photos are uploaded in real-time, from multiple locations.
Collaborate in the Cloud with Nexus:
- Two appraisers can work on the same order to complete it more quickly
- Office staff can ask for extra details, or more photo angles
- Data entry tasks can be performed by someone in the office
- Trainees can watch and learn as a report’s built in front of them
Draw building sketches with ease on any device.
Could a faster way to calculate property square footage help you save time?
Just draw a property floorplan with the handy Sketch feature in Nexus and your property square footage is calculated automatically.
Easily add labels to your sketch in Nexus
There are over 25 labels available for you to choose from, or you can add your own custom label if you don’t see what you’re looking for.
Any custom labels you add will be saved to this list for future use on other report sketches. Your custom label will also appear at the top of the list for easy access.
Sketch for Mobile
Mobile Sketch is available on the Anow Mobile app. There are two ways to use the sketch feature:
- Use your finger on the touch screen to draw freehand as you wish.
- Use the numbers and arrows to draw the area for you.
UAD Assistant tool with real-time prompts
Are you ready for smart technology that helps reduce revisions?
Nexus has a Uniform Appraisal Dataset (UAD) Assistant tool that comes with real-time prompts to help reduce revisions!
Available on NUMEROUS forms
Let us illustrate with the popular 1004 URAR form. Upon opening a page within the “1004 URAR” section (Subject Info or Sales Comparison, for example), there will be a number of cells marked in green on the form.
- When a cell is green, it means that is a UAD field and still requires validation.
- Once a UAD field has been successfully validated, it will turn blue like the rest of the cells.
Exclusive to Nexus: The CompVault
Used a sale before? CompVault saves you time by pre-filling the data.
CompVault also allows you to share comp details with colleagues. And don’t worry, it’s safe and securely stored.
How to Save comparables to the compvault
- Enter a comparable and simply click the Save to Vault button.
- Your saved comparable will show there is a match in the vault if you or your team enters this address in the future.
Automatically generated picklists
Are you ready to see how Anow’s Picklists feature can help you significantly speed up the form filling process?
Nexus gathers the most common and recently used responses for each field, and adds them to the Picklist for you to reference on future forms.
Using Picklists: Easy as 1, 2, 3
Previously filled out fields will automatically be pulled into a picklist for you! You can then filter by the Top 10 and Most Recent Responses, or create your own custom picklist.
