ClarksCloud now gives the user the ability to draw their own areas and then save those as searches e.g. for residential sales, the area south of the river or the senior school catchment area. Or for use in the commercial system, the M4 corridor or a particular industrial area within a town or just the properties within a shopping mall or along a high street.
Now it’s really simple to integrate ClarksCloud with your WordPress website.
Simply drop a
shortcode onto a page to display property listings, property details and more.

We won Bronze for Best Website. Rather a good result considering it’s for a single branch site, the new Ashington Page of Beaconsfield website – The award was for the whole of the UK and was open to small, medium and large agents. We were only beaten by Foxtons and Romans, both of whom have their own IT, design and marketing departments.
We were certainly given a difficult job to beat the “big players” with all their sales patter and marketing budgets. However, Pearsons who have offices in and around the Southampton, Fareham and Portsmouth areas decided the merits of our ClarksCloud software out weighed anything the opposition had to offer and we are now in the process of developing their specific requirements with a view to convert their existing data from the GMW system and to roll out the installation over the next few weeks.
We’re very excited to be working with such a prestigious, professional and well thought of business and look forward to creating some unique facilities and features to give Pearsons a competitive advantage.
After seeing the Google Analytics for their new site, Gareth Ashington sent us the following message:
Incredible web stats. Bounce rate was 70% in August, 11% in September and now 4%!
It’s working really well and we’ve entered Best Website in the awards in December.
Thank you again for all your hard work.
We’re delighted to announce that Connells now use our ClarksCloud software. They like so many other new clients love the flexibility and adaptability of the system… and it’s all in a Cloud environment that is so secure even Connells IT Department have accepted it!
Ryeview Homes of High Wycombe only started trading in 2012 but had realised that the software they were using and the website they’d had built weren’t man enough for the job. We created a new website for them and moved them over to ClarksCloud Property software to power the site and feed the property portals.
The results were almost immediate with an increase in enquiries and a higher conversion rate.
Another very happy client, Christmas came early for Ryeview Homes

Our understanding of the new regulation charges are as follows however, please seek advice professional from your EPC provider too.
The regulations surrounding EPC’s has changed again! Guidance has been issued by the Department of Communities & Local Government, it is not definitive, final details are still to be confirmed but we have put together this guidance for our users to ensure that you are aware of the new regulations.
Full details can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/improving-the-energy-efficiency-of-our-buildings
You no longer need to attach the front page of the EPC to your property details. Instead, the EPC rating must be displayed in all advertisements, there is no requirement to use the full EPC, just the graph will do. However, if space is limited, such as in newspaper advertisements then you should include the actual EPC rating, for example D.
In other words, you can just include the EPC rating in your advertising text by manually adding the value at the end of your description, so it is visible in all your press advertising.
An exception to this regulation is listed buildings no longer require an EPC unless they are involved in a green deal arrangement.
The specification has been in development for a decade and now all the features that have been planned for it are in it! There’s still some fine tuning (bug fixing in other words) to do but HTML5 will be the power behind the next generation of websites, smartphone apps and online video.
HTML5 lets developers deliver in-browser experiences that previously required standalone apps or software like Flash or Silverlight. Clarks have been ahead of the game and already use it to power their image processing module. It supports touch screen, offline tools, video and geolocation services, amongst other things.
Most of the main browsers already support most of the HTML5 features including the latest versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox and Safari are already compatible with most HTML5 elements.
App developers have followed suit. The Financial Times abandoned its smartphone app last year in favor of an HTML5 mobile website. The site looks and works like an app but with the advantage that the Financial Times doesn’t have to make multiple changes to all the multiple smartphone platforms. It also means the Financial Times doesn’t have to Apple for in-app purchases.
Here at Clarks, we’ve embraced the new standard, if you’d like to know more about how it will effect your business and way of working, give us a call.
