"We've published many articles about video on our website," says Victor Lund, CEO of RE Technology, Inc. "We figured it was time to 'walk the walk' ourselves. And, when choosing a partner for our video, VScreen was a perfect fit."
"When RE Technology was being designed in 2009, we knew that video was going to emerge as an important communication channel for the site," said Lund. RE Technology first launched to the public in May of 2010, with a placeholder video on the homepage that expressed the RE Technology mission. With the VScreen partnership in place, RE Technology now offers a multichannel training video show that plays on all devices, without sending visitors away to third party sites like YouTube. VScreen's video player is HTML5-compatible, which means it appears seamlessly on the iPad and on Smartphones.
"VScreen could not be happier than to be selected by a leading site like RE Technology," said Stephen Schweickart, VScreen CEO. "We have been developing our training library for a number of years now and this opportunity enables our company to reach the largest agent audience in the real estate industry." VScreen training videos will now be available as a training resource in more than fifty MLSs as a result of the RE Technology relationship. Thirty additional MLSs are scheduled for launch in the next thirty weeks.
RE Technology has been increasing their use of video site-wide. Regular video columnists include Maya Paveza, Michael Krisa, and MRISTV.com. Stephen Schweickart of VScreen has also played a significant role in his series of videos educating agents and brokers on the effective use of video in real estate marketing.
The new relationship will feature VScreen videos from industry leaders sharing advice and tips for success in real estate. Trainers include Verl Workman, Bernice Ross, and numerous others.
VScreen and RE Technology are both tightly held private companies. Financial details were not made public.
