The UK property professional has become increasingly commanding and complicated, since I qualified as a Chartered Surveyor in 2000. For those, like me, whom are involved in property valuation, development, and investment, our knowledge base has become much broader and deeper, and access to information 24/7 is increasingly important.
We work with many other professionals: solicitors, barristers, architects, structural engineers, mechanical and electrical engineers, environmental engineers, rights to light surveyors, quantity surveyors, town planners, and exceptionally skilled government officers. Working in multi-disciplinary teams I became aware how much I learned from from other professionals, and the amount of information available can be overwhelming.
Our environment, and the legal framework we work within, has and continues to change immeasurably fast, and continuous professional development is essential for success. Likewise our need for communication access to social media is growing exponentially.
Primoval Property Desktop is probably the Desktop that Microsoft might have written if they understood and had written Microsoft Windows 10 for the UK property profession.
The Property Desktop is a Desktop that installs on Windows 10, and exists in conjunction with the Windows 10 Desktop. Both run at the same time. The Property Desktop provides easy access to the most useful Settings of Windows 10, such as screen resolution and VPN. To keep things tidy, the Property Desktop has no icons and the picture forming the Property Desktop can be changed at will, and can for example be your corporate logo.
Instead of the usual icons on the Microsoft Desktop, the Property Desktop has menus, and sub menus, that drop down from a menu bar across the top of the Desktop. These access professional bodies and planning authorities serving the property profession, EU and UK law, valuation evidence, news, Microsoft, Primoval and third party apps, crypto, social media, streams, executive tools, and so much more. I designed it for the UK.
