Tom Cummuskey reveals proptech-inspired future for its sale signs

Thursday, January 5, 2023

Agency board supplier Kremer Signs is working on geotagging tools that can be incorporated into For Sale signs.


Tom Cummuskey, sales and marketing manager for Kremer Signs, has revealed how the brand is make agency boards fit for the future, including eco-friendly and proptech-inspired signs.


Speaking to Lee Dahill in an exclusive Estate Agent Today interview, Cummuskey revealed how the brand’s boards are becoming more tech-friendly.


A QR code can already be added to the board so a passer-by can scan it for more information about a property.


But Cummuskey added that the Kremer Signs research and development team is now working on added geotagging to the QR code.


He said: “This is where the QR code is added to the board and instead of lots of different qr codes, if the user has location enable on their phone, it will show other properties available from the agent within the area.”


Cummuskey said the pandemic has made people more comfortable with QR codes and smart boards, adding: “We launched smart boards 10 years but they didn’t take off as people didn’t know how to use a QR code or hadn’t downloaded an app.


“Now it is readily available.”


He added that eco boards are becoming more popular. 


Kremer Sign’s eco boards are made from recyclable sheets and it provides a free scrappage and recycling scheme.


Cummuskey said: “We are being reminded time and time again about the importance of reducing our carbon footprint."

“For signage and our industry as a whole, the For Sale board can come under scrutiny about if it has a place in the market.

“We saw it as our responsibility to ensure it has a future by making sure it is carbon friendly.”

Really impressed by Kremer Signs

We were really impressed by Kremer Signs and how quickly they could get our boards printed and delivered to our board movement providers. All the staff that we dealt with are extremely friendly. I worked closely with Ryan Little and Sam Collins - both very helpful and quick at responding. Thank you for your help - we are super happy with our boards from Kremer Signs.
