Clareity Released an All New SSO Dashboard — and It's Better Than Ever
SCOTTSDALE, Arizona – October 29, 2015 – Clareity Security just launched a new version of its popular Single Sign-On (SSO) Dashboard and its customers have never been more excited. After a year of design work and user experience testing, this product is considered Version 3.0 in Clareity's history of dashboards. The first customers to launch Version 3.0 were Dayton Area Board of REALTORS®, Maine Real Estate Information Systems, My Florida Regional MLS, and Ulster County Board of REALTORS®. Other early adopters include Statewide MLS, Intermountain MLS, MARIS, CTMLS, ReColorado, Greater Las Vegas Association of REALTORS®, and NNRMLS. Many more organizations are scheduled to follow soon. My Florida Regional MLS launched its Version 3.0 Dashboard last week. Ever since the go-live day, members have been reaching out to MFRMLS staff with praises. One member tweeted the following:   "Clareity's new dashboard design is modern, mobile responsive and easy to navigate. Launching this new dashboard was a seamless transition for our customers. We've received positive feedback," said Merri Jo Cowen, CEO of MFRMLS. Clareity brought in design and user experience (UX) experts Iteration Group to ensure the most professional and modern UI and UX. Iteration Group is respected for various clients including Quickbooks, NBC Universal, and Illumination Entertainment (Despicable Me – minions!) as well as popular apps Angie's List and ChowNow. With Iteration Group's design expertise and Clareity's knowledge of the real estate industry, the two teams collaborated to create the "dream dashboard" for agents, brokers and other real estate professionals. Completely redesigned and renovated, Version 3.0 has all the staple benefits of the original SSO Dashboard, but promises many new features. Some of the new features include Discover (a localized directory of top RE products and services), NAR Member Resources (a panel offering benefit programs and offerings from the National Association of REALTORS®), Affiliate/Sponsorship Marketing (a source for non-dues revenue), and "Assumed Identity" privileges for assistants and teams across all applications. The most popular new feature is the Notifications Module within the dashboard that allows users or groups of users (such as everyone within an office) to receive messages from the MLS and/or the Association. The messages can be in the form of on-screen notifications, badge alerts to specific products within the dashboard, or the more traditional inbox message. "Clareity has launched a few innovative products, but nothing compares to the excitement generated by this new dashboard. Version 3.0 provides everything an MLS or Association could need or want for the modern delivery of branded member services and communications," said Gregg Larson, CEO of Clareity Security. Clareity currently powers over 650,000 individual end-users accessing over 200 MLS and Association Dashboards and counting. Version 3.0 can also be customized and branded for the Brokerage community.

Rapattoni is First MLS System Offering Integration with ListTrac Nationwide
San Diego – May 8, 2015 – ListTrac, known as the "Google Analytics for real estate listings," today announced that Rapattoni Corporation (Rapattoni), a leader in providing software and services for real estate associations and MLS organizations, is the first MLS system provider to offer ListTrac integration nationally for MLS customers who subscribe to the ListTrac analytics service. The move allows real estate agents and brokers using participating MLS systems powered by Rapattoni to track consumer engagement and measure online performance for properties listed across the Internet. With 100-plus MLS clients serving approximately 200,000 users nationally, Rapattoni is providing ListTrac integration for all MLS customers who subscribe to the ListTrac service. Each MLS will individually sign up with ListTrac to receive the analytics service, with the San Francisco Association of REALTORS® (SFAR) scheduled to be the first Rapattoni customer to roll ListTrac out to its members. ListTrac will provide SFAR member brokers and agents with a consolidated dashboard that provides deep metrics for all listings with statistics for every website upon which their listings are featured. According to Madeleine Talbot-Leighton, Product Manager at Rapattoni, this new service can be a major benefit to MLS firms as their member brokers and agents can now show sellers an enormous amount of buyer engagement occurring inside their own MLS system, as well as throughout their IDX broker and agent websites. "In real estate, information is power," said Talbot-Leighton. "MLS firms can now provide powerful analytics to their members who in turn can share this information with their clients. The impact is two-fold: MLS firms can demonstrate the value they deliver to their members every day, while their members can quantify for sellers the value they receive through the broker and agents online marketing activities." Trent Gardner, CEO of ListTrac, sees Rapattoni filling a vital role in helping MLS firms immediately deploy a broker- and agent-centric technology that will help them improve their members productivity. "As the first MLS system to offer ListTrac analytics nationally, Rapattoni is resetting the bar for the kind of information that agents and brokers need to compete in today's digital universe," Gardner says. Gardner explains that within a single dashboard, agents and brokers will know how often a listing is viewed on each site, the average time someone spends looking at a listing, and the number of leads they receive from each website. Moreover, agents and brokers will provide sellers with automated weekly reports that allow sellers to see and compare how well their listings are performing online. The burgeoning ListTrac recently announced it is partnering with Zillow to offer agents and brokers expanded reporting on their listings both on Zillow and across the Web. Today more than 200,000 agents are tracking a half-million listings using ListTrac. About Rapattoni MLS Rapattoni MLS is setting the standard with advanced features such as integrated GIS parcel mapping, an integrated member management and billing system, the industry's most advanced RETS 1.7.2 data exchange system with RESO Data Dictionary 1.3 certification, integrated aerial photography, a robust statistics and trends analysis package, language translation, the Rapattoni Secure Logon system featuring Adaptive Authentication technology, and the ability to operate a convenient Single Sign-On (SSO) identity portal.

MRED Continues to Meet the Standards
LISLE, Ill., April 13, 2015 -- Midwest Real Estate Data (MRED), Chicagoland's multiple listing service (MLS), has announced that the Real Estate Standards Organization (RESO) has certified MRED for RESO Data Dictionary 1.3. RESO is an organization that develops, adopts and implements open and accepted data standards and processes across all real estate transactions and provide an environment for the development and implementation of data standards and processes. RESO's Data Dictionary serves as the real estate industry's "Rosetta Stone" for real estate data. While hundreds of MLSs and other source providers gather data, the Data Dictionary ensures that each system "speaks" the same language. As MLSs across the industry adopt RESO standards, the industry will move towards an environment where real estate software becomes plug-and-play. Realtors® will be able to purchase off the shelf software and it will plug into any MLS that has implemented RESO standards. This is quite different than the state of the industry today, where it is extremely hard for new software to be used from one market to the next. It will be easier for real estate professionals to use MLS data in the products that they choose. They will have better options and the data that flows through their systems will be more accurate because the Data Dictionary negates the need for translation from one system to the next. RESO standards give more options and control to Realtors®. MRED's commitment to RESO is evidenced by being its first Charter Member and its continued participation in and support of data standardization efforts. These efforts are important to MRED customers, the real estate industry in general, and the consumer. MRED and other organizations that maintain these standards can more easily exchange information without degrading or losing data, resulting in more accuracy and less cost. New applications and services are developed because there is a wider audience to offer them to. dynaConnections, MRED's MLS vendor, also has a strong commitment to RESO. As another Charter Member of the organization, dynaConnections dedicates significant resources and time to remain on the front line of RESO initiatives. Technologists from both MRED and dynaConnections have worked closely to attain not only the Data Dictionary 1.3 certification but also to maintain MRED's Real Estate Transaction Standard (RETS) Server certification. "We're proud supporters of RESO and firm believers in the long-term power in its mission," said dynaConnections CEO, Tim Ford. "The organization is making great strides towards bettering the industry, and we're happy to contribute in any way possible." "I have a deep commitment to RESO, having served as its Board Chair for four years," said MRED President and CEO Rebecca Jensen. "RESO is important to me and to MRED. We will continue to support the setting of standards, and the providing of data and tools needed to meet the demands of real estate professionals and consumers alike." About MRED Midwest Real Estate Data (MRED) is the real estate data aggregator and distributor providing the Chicagoland multiple listing service (MLS) to nearly 40,000 brokers and appraisers and 8,000 offices. MRED serves Chicago and the surrounding "collar" counties and provides property information encompassing northern Illinois, southern Wisconsin and northwest Indiana.

Western Canadian Real Estate Boards Select Paragon as New MLS System
JACKSONVILLE, FL, Oct. 29, 2014 – Together, the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver, the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board, and the REALTORS® Association of Edmonton have entered into an agreement with the MLS division of Black Knight Financial Services to replace their current MLS systems with Paragon during the summer of 2015.

"When the new systems are installed in 2015, we will achieve the financial and support benefits afforded a larger organization, yet retain the local controls so important to our individual associations." "We are very impressed with how exceptionally well-prepared these three boards were to communicate their requirements and their vision, and are fortunate to have this group as our inaugural partner in the Canadian MLS market," said Black Knight MLS Managing Director Rich Lull. "We look forward to meeting and exceeding their MLS technology needs, and we congratulate the boards for their extremely effective collaboration, which resulted in a great solution for them and their members."

Goomzee, Black Knight, Clareity Collaborate To Solve MLS Dilemma
Missoula, MT — September 10, 2014 — Real estate professionals supported by the Peoria Area Association of REALTORS® (PAAR) can soon access multiple MLSs in their market from a single mobile app solution. Goomzee, a leading provider of mobile MLS apps for real estate professionals, announced today that by collaborating with Black Knight Financial Services, makers of Paragon MLS system, and Clareity Security, they were able to combine access to multiple MLS systems for both Residential and Commercial customers and allow access from a single interface. "We have members that are commercial only, others residential only, and still others that participate in both but they had to access each MLS separately which was a major inconvenience," explains Brian Carroll, MLS/Technology Coordinator for Peoria Area Association of REALTORS®. "Thankfully the technical experts managing Paragon and Clareity were able to combine user authentication, and Goomzee was able to integrate with them and still maintain multiple systems from a single app so we protect access, but simplify accessibility. We are thrilled to better serve our members and the collaboration amongst our vendors to make this dream a reality." The local REALTOR® association has managed two separate MLS systems for their Residential and Commercial customers but until now, they had separate sites and login credentials to gain access. Since Goomzee's Mobile MLS solution connects to many MLSs and exposes their access from a single user-friendly interface, it was able to connect to both PAAR MLS systems powered by Paragon MLS. Goomzee's app detects if multiple MLSs are nearby and allows users to switch between them. They enter their login credentials and Goomzee authenticates against Clareity Security's SafeMLS system, then detects which database they have access to, and allows them to access agent-only information. "Solving technical challenges like this makes me so proud of our team's commitment to deliver upon our promise to meet and exceed the needs of our customers," says Black Knight MLS Managing Director Rich Lull. "I'm excited to work with other leading technology providers like Goomzee and Clareity Security to best serve our mutual customers." As the industry evolves, in many markets there are multiple or even competing MLS databases within close proximity. Often real estate professionals are members of more than one MLS, but have to maintain separate logins and access. Historically, MLSs have invested in tedious data share or aggregation projects to solve these access issues, sometimes costing $millions for third-party database, aggregation, and syndication services. Goomzee's Mobile MLS service connects to all major MLS system providers and can expose listings from multiple markets in a single, user-friendly interface, regardless of who their MLS system is provided by. By combining security integration with other leading technology providers, the service not only solves data aggregation and access issues, but saves MLSs and Realtor® Associations considerable expenses and delights their customers. "As we architected our listing database and mobile search tools, one thing we noticed was the fragmentation caused by maintaining separate sites or apps in each market which ultimately slows innovation," says Mike Sparr, Goomzee's CEO and founder. "Although a monstrous task we knew to truly add value to the industry and not be 'just another app' we needed to solve real industry problems. We looked at overlapping market disorder, data aggregation and slow performance complaints and decided to solve all three. It's great that other technology leaders like Clareity and Black Knight are helping us solve these issues that have plagued the industry, and I look forward to helping others soon." "We are pleased to be part of a solution that makes ease of access better for the members of Peoria Area Association of REALTORS®. Convenient, secure authentication services are cornerstone to the services we offer our customers. Kudos to Goomzee for recognizing SAFEMLS as a tool to help facilitate a better user experience for their solution," said Amy Geddes, EVP & COO of Clareity Security. Goomzee, Black Knight's Paragon MLS, and Clareity Security are in the final stages of integration testing, and PAAR members can access the new Mobile MLS apps this month. About Goomzee Goomzee celebrated its 11th year in business in 2014. The company began as an e-commerce application service provider, powering and hosting small business' e-commerce websites, but shifted to real estate technology just as the industry fell into turmoil to solve recognized gaps in mobile technology. The company has been serving the real estate industry since 2007, and multiple listing services since 2008. It's initial real estate product called Goomzee Connect allows agents to capture leads at the property via text message codes on sign riders and a lead capture system. After working closely with MLSs and providing it's service as a member benefit in nearly 30 MLS markets, representing over 296,000 agents, MLSs approached Goomzee to co-design a mobile solution that would best serve the needs of their members. Their current solution represents a culmination of their first-generation web solution, and two years of research and development to offer a platform that rivals the large portals.
