RoR Site : Gujarat specific real estate portal - Citiplots.com launched
17 September, 2008
Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India
Railshouse - Ruby on Rails division of Gloscon Solutions Pvt Limited launched Citiplots.com - a Gujarat specific Real Estate portal. Internet is growing in India at 1100% Year on Year and there are very few players in Web 2.0 space.
All the Indian Real Estate Portals have very clumsy look and feel. Its very irritating to see 100s of advertisements on Home Page. Besides that these sites do not have Web 2.0 features like Videos, Floor Plans, detailed pricing information, google maps, reviews of the property, etc. Most of the sites are listing properties all over India and the local aspects are missing.
Gujarat has its own calculations e.g Super Builtup, Maintenance, Parking, Legal, etc. Citiplots has taken inputs from major real estate brokers while building the website.
This is the alpha release of the site built on Ruby on Rails.
Citplots also has features that saves time. You can see Videos, Property Images, complete floor plan and exact location. For Agents, this gives added revenue stream as they can charge their clients for Video editing, plan creation etc services.
URL Structure, Title Tags, Description, H1, H2, H3 headings, description, etc are all search engine friendly. In the next phase, Graphical trends of various regions, advertisement placements, etc will be developed. Gloscon also plans to build General Real Estate Listing Exchange Standards whereby the a central database of all Gujarat Properties can be built and consumed by many future realty sites.
Gloscon Solutions Pvt Limited, is a leading Web 2.0 Product and Services company. The company provides a full range of services in Drupal, Ruby on Rails and Infrastructure Monitoring.
