Alto makes it easy for you to manage the progression of a sale/property purchase.

The Progressions tab provides you with a list of all your sales in progression, and from there you can manage each individual sale via the use of progression tasks that are to be followed, until such time as the sale has completed.

During the progression, any progress made can be shared in real-time with your buyers and sellers via PropertyFile.
