Where Real Estate Gets Its Dirt

Discover MLS integrates Cloud CMA

Yes, don’t think the irony is lost on me here. But, the new owners/partners at Discover MLS have surprised me in their tenacity to get things done. I’m hoping to announce many MLS vendors integrating Cloud CMA with their MLS system soon. If you’re a MLS vendor check out http://CloudCMA.com/developers. If you’re an MLS Provider tell your vendor….

Discover Software and W&R Studios Announce MLS-CMA Integration

Valencia, Calif., September 30 2010-Discover Software, Inc. (Discover) and W&R Studios announced today that Discover’s flagship MLS product now includes full integration with W&R Studios Cloud CMA product.

Discover’s state-of-the-art Multiple Listing Service software is the industry’s first and only Web 2.0 solution, designed from the ground up to harness the power of Adobe Flash®. Leveraging this powerful platform, the application includes ground-breaking features such as seamless multi-tasking, real-time search count, active map search & results grid, and exclusive performance-boosting cache technology.
W&R Studios Cloud CMA is the leading solution for preparing comparative market analysis, buyer’s tour, and property reports. Users can create amazing presentations with ease, from a desktop/laptop or mobile smartphone, with exclusive blended data from top websites including Google, Zillow, education.com, Walk Score and Yelp.

With the new integration enabled, users can search for listings or comps in Discover MLS and seamlessly launch a new Cloud CMA package to produce stunning reports that will help them win more listings and write more offers. The companies’ joint goal is to keep the Real Estate professional at the center of the transaction with the finest tools available.
Bret Wiener, President of Discover, said, “We are very pleased to offer our users the best of both worlds – the market’s premier technology for both MLS and CMA. Further, our rapid delivery of this integration once again demonstrates the incredible pace made possible by agile software development.”

“When we developed an API so MLS vendors could integrate Cloud CMA with their MLS systems, we were hoping to spur innovation in ways that real estate web apps could work together. Discover MLS’s integration of the Cloud CMA API was incredibly fast and the results made that goal a reality,” said W&R Studios co-founder Greg Robertson.
The new Discover-Cloud CMA integration is available for licensing immediately, and the first implementation is already underway.
