Rapattoni Releases Mobile MLS Apps for iOS and Android
SIMI VALLEY, Calif., October 20, 2016 – Rapattoni Corporation announced today that the company's Rapattoni MLS Mobile App is now available for iOS and Android devices. This new offering allows realtors to access the MLS using a native app instead of a web browser on smartphones and tablets. Each Rapattoni MLS customer receives a custom app branded with their logo and splash screen background image. MLS members can then download the free apps from the iTunes App Store and Google Play Store. The new app makes accessing the MLS faster than ever, with a 'one-touch login' feature allowing realtors to enter Agent ID and Password once and then bypass them for subsequent logins. Using the Rapattoni MLS Mobile App, real estate professionals can quickly search for listings on a map, view hotsheets showing the latest listing updates, and access their contact and prospect data. Listing agents can also revise their listings and upload property photos directly from their mobile devices, plus the app includes social media tools, tax record integration, and a wealth of other MLS resources. Destyn Dagle, Director of MLS & IWS Software at Rapattoni, said, "We're thrilled to offer these native iOS and Android apps to all Rapattoni MLS customers at no additional charge. With live MLS data as well as open houses and other features, our apps are the best source for up-to-date listing information." "We started this project several months ago," added Rapattoni President Ralph Hoover. "Apple's review process is fairly thorough and getting the iOS apps approved can be rather time-consuming, plus we also need to get the Android versions approved by Google. Since the apps are customized for each MLS site, each one needs to make its way through the review process individually. It's a lot of work but well worth it to win a spot in the iTunes App Store and the Google Play Store." Catherine Emert, Information Technology Director at Central Oregon Association of REALTORS®, said, "The Rapattoni MLS Mobile App allows our brokers the ease and flexibility to work from anywhere and on any device. We especially like that the app's appearance is customizable with our logo and design. This is a great enhancement for our membership."

Elaine Hangis, CEO at Lexington-Bluegrass Association of REALTORS®, said, "Rapattoni's new app is loaded with great features and it's been a real hit with our members. Being able to download it from the official iTunes and Google Play stores makes it easy for everyone to get it running." Brian Tepfer, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at Rapattoni, added, "Many realtors are transitioning from desktop computers to mobile devices as their primary means of accessing MLS data. Our native apps for iOS and Android deliver powerful MLS tools with an intuitive touch-based interface that helps these users work more efficiently on smartphones and tablets."

W+R Studios Launches Cloud MLX, an Alternative Front End to Existing MLS Systems
Huntington Beach, CA – (May 9, 2016)—Privately held software company, W+R Studios, announced today the release of Cloud MLX – a new way for real estate professional to access their MLS. Greg Robertson, W+R Studios co-founder, stated "Real estate professionals can't do business without access to MLS data, yet most traditional MLS systems are difficult to use and hard to navigate. We believe MLS members deserve more choices." Cloud MLX is designed to get agents up and running and searching the MLS with little or no training. It's intuitive search bar, mapping, and the use of hashtags gives MLS members better tools to connect with other agents and work smarter with clients. "Like all of our products, Cloud MLX is not a replacement to the services offered by the MLS.  Agents can use Cloud MLX to complete their most common tasks on an MLS, like searching for and sharing listings with clients.  However, agents will still need their existing MLS to do advanced searches and listing input," continued Mr. Robertson. "We started W+R Studios because it was apparent that consumers had better access to tools than real estate professionals, and that was unacceptable" stated Dan Woolley, co-founder of W+R Studios. "Cloud MLX continues our mission of giving real estate professionals better tools to help them grow their businesses." W+R Studios will be attending The REALTORS Legislative Meetings and Trade Expo in Washington D.C. May 9 -13, 2016. Cloud MLX is currently available for purchase to California Regional Multiple Listing (CRMLS) members.  More MLS providers will be announced later this month.

MRED and Rate Plug Help in Horse Race to Sell More Homes
LISLE, ILL., May 1, 2015 -- Midwest Real Estate Data (MRED), Chicagoland's multiple listing service (MLS), announced it has introduced a new tool to help its real estate professionals sell more properties and provide greater service to the consumer. When FHA financing is available to buyers of a property, there are lower down payment and easier credit requirements available. MRED has collaborated with RatePlug and FHA Pros to add FHA eligibility indicators to all condos and townhomes in connectMLS. MRED customers can now simply look for "traffic light" indicators on each condo and townhome listing in the MLS to see if the property is FHA approved (green light), conditionally approved (yellow light) or not approved (red light). There is also handy information regarding obtaining FHA approval for those properties that do not have it. "FHA PROs, in partnership with RatePlug, is excited to provide to MRED, a leading MLS innovator, real time condominium data that relates to FHA approval, eligibility, and assumability information by specific property address," said Christopher Gardner, CEO of FHA PROs. "This technology will assist agents who are selling condominiums to be much more efficient and accurate when marketing the property, as well as providing valuable information to their homebuyers regarding potential specialty financing options." "We're excited to introduce another way for our real estate professionals to help their customers find their dream home," said Rebecca Jensen, MRED President/Chief Executive Officer. "As we have done with our other services, FHA Eligibility Indicators significantly benefit the consumer as well as MRED's Brokers. This adds yet another tool to MRED customers' toolboxes."
