CHRIS. The entire system runs on any Internet-ready

office, at home, or on the road- anytime, anywhere.
- The system is cost-effective.
One flat monthly rate allows agents unlimited access
to add, update, search and run reports on vacation rental
listings as often as you wish.
- The system
is powerful. CHRIS is run on Microsoft's most powerful
database - SQL Server, running on HAL Systems' own Internet
servers. This dynamic and powerful
database allows agents and customers to be able to perform
listing searches based on price, location, availability,
features, and amenities. CHRIS will find just what the
customer wants- fast and easy. Reports based on various
criteria are built right into the system.
CHRIS runs in real time. Any changes in any listings
are updated instantly! If a listing has just been taken,
your agents know immediately. Whether it's a new listing
from another realtor, a change in the listing information,
or a week has just been taken, agents AND customers
see the changes immediately. (Customers will only see
your listings when they are at your web site - the system's

book listings. The agents AND customers can
view any or all or your realty's vacation rental listings. Customers
see ONLY your realty's listings - no shared listings appear
on your web site's searches as with other rentals systems. Now
the agent can discuss the rental with the customer while
he/she is on the phone, and they can see what you are
- CHRIS includes multi-realtor
network reporting. Owners often list their rental properties
with several realtors. This has traditionally caused many
problems with the realtors having to continually contact
the other realtors to inform them of when listings has
been taken, and to check to see the current status of
shared listings. The CHRIS system allows all realtors
sharing a listing the ability to instantly view the
current real-time booking status of that listing! Please
note: subscribing to the CHRIS system does not give a realty
who is "new to rentals" instant access to information
about, or the authorization to write leases for any existing
vacation rentals. Every realty on the CHRIS system must first
obtain rental authorizations from property owners on their own
before they have access to any of the exisitng rentals on the
CHRIS system, or any new rentals that they input into the system.
- CHRIS is secure. Logons and passwords are supplied to each
agent and office. No agent can change any listing that
belongs to another. There are also administrative logons
for the office manager to allow them to add/delete agents
from the system and control other functions.
- CHRIS is fast and
reliable. The system runs on our high
speed Internet data servers which are connected to multiple
peer networks for speed and reliablility. This means that your
both agents and your prospective tenants will be able to utilize
the CHRIS system 24/7.
- CHRIS eliminates the wait for listings to
be posted. With a digital camera, it's fast and
easy to take the picture of the property and upload
it to the system. You control how to present the listing
to your customers. Digital photos are easy and fun to
touch up to make your listing look great!
- CHRIS is versatile and expandable. CHRIS is
designed to meet the needs of realtors today and for
years to come. Scores of features are included to streamline
your rentals operations and the entire system is uniquely designed
to simplify every aspect of data entry. Rental leases and authorizations
are customized and programmed into CHRIS to nearly duplicate
your existing documents exactly. Generating your leases
and authorizations are "snap" with CHRIS! Whether you need custom reports for your
application or would like special features to help boost
your vacation rental business, CHRIS works for you!
