As I ended my third Zoom meeting of the day, and got ready for my first-ever virtual Halloween Party on GoogleMeet, I realized just how much life has changed in the last few months because of the the pandemic.
We’ve gotten used to doing almost everything online via apps—from business meetings and reunions, ordering food, shopping to watching movies and playing games.
And then it hit me, what if this global pandemic happened 15 years ago, in 2005?
Social media was Friendster/MySpace, chats were through YM! Movies on DVDs, a lot of us were still gaming via the Playstation 2, and food deliveries were very limited– not to mention, that DSL broadband access were very much limited.
A lot more businesses would’ve closed and most of us would’ve been bored to death by the first few weeks. Thanks to technology adapting to staying—to eventually working and studying from home was a bit easier than expected.
The restrictions still caused a lot of physical and mental stress but technology has somehow made it slightly bearable to stay isolated.
We may not be seeing the sunlight but we are definitely seeing our phone’s blue light more!
What most people are referring to as the “new normal” is the very existence of technology that people are now using to keep their daily operations going. Messaging applications, video conferencing, cloud infrastructure, and of course, the internet has made it possible for most of us to work, study and socialize–all from home.
And in today’s reality of COVID-19, where physical distancing, hand hygiene and contactless transactions are now an essential part of the new normal, businesses are also coming up with new ways on how to deliver their products to their targeted consumers.
In the real estate industry, a usually traditional business model for example, Vista Residences is pioneering new ways on property investing with their contactless solutions.
The condominium arm of the country’s largest homebuilder Vista Land & Lifescapes, Inc. has innovated property investing by providing contactless solutions to ensure the safety, security and convenience of both its employees and customers.
Vista Residences stays true to its commitment to focus on the people who matter most to the company’s success – its employees and customers.
Take a look around the property via the Virtual Tour feature.
Property investors, first-time and returning customers can now view Vista Residences condos in Manila, either ready for occupancy or pre-selling units, via 360-degree virtual tours, property look book and e-catalogue available on the company’s website (www.vistaresidences.com.ph) and Facebook page (@VistaResidencesOfficial).
“In times of uncertainty, customers’ expectations rise with the need around safety, convenience and quality service. We, at Vista Residences, recognize the need to double our efforts in virtually engaging with our customers through the use of various digital channels. For us, contactless and digital payment methods require less physical interaction and are more safe and secure”, says Elizabeth M. Kalaw, Chief Operating Officer, Vista Residences.
Meanwhile, for those who want a more personalized customer experience, online presentation with a Digital Sales Officer may be scheduled. Condominium unit buyers may send their online presentation request through Vista Residences Facebook page, via email at [email protected] or SMS through mobile number +639089148457.
Moreover, Vista Residences also enables its customers to reserve their chosen condo in Manila or Quezon City from the comfort of their home. Customers can now reserve their preferred condominium unit by simply sending scanned copies of the required documents, a valid government-issued ID, and proof of online payment of the reservation fee.
Vista Residences has ready for occupancy and pre-selling condos in Manila and Quezon City that are strategically located near premium universities and developed business districts.
