Where Real Estate Gets Its Dirt

Rapattoni adds Cloud CMA

Rapattoni MLS Offers Integration with Cloud CMA

Simi Valley, California, April 15, 2011 – Rapattoni Corporation (Rapattoni), a leading provider of software and services for the real estate industry, announced today that the company’s Rapattoni MLS software now offers complete integration with W&R Studios’ Cloud CMA.

Using Rapattoni’s industry leading Single Sign-On technology (SSO), the first implementation of the Cloud CMA integration was launched for MetroList® Services, Inc. (MetroList), which serves more than 17,500 members across the Sacramento, Placer, El Dorado, Yolo, San Joaquin, Stanislaus, and Merced counties in northern California.

Cloud CMA is the latest product launch from W&R Studios and offers real estate professionals the ability to create custom comparative market analysis (CMA) reports, buyer tours, and property reports. MetroList’s members will be able to log in to Rapattoni MLS, select listings to use with Cloud CMA, and then Rapattoni MLS will seamlessly send the required listing data to Cloud CMA. Without having to log in to Cloud CMA, agents can then work with the listing data within the Cloud CMA platform.

Greg Robertson, Co-founder of W&R Studios, said, “We are so pleased with how quickly and efficiently the Rapattoni team was able to make our product integrate with Rapattoni MLS. Rapattoni has been a leader in SSO technology, and we are excited that our MLS customers will now be able to utilize Rapattoni MLS to bring their listing data directly to our product.”

Tom Beede, President and Chief Executive Officer of MetroList, said, “Rapattoni always provides innovative and flexible solutions for us when we need Rapattoni MLS to integrate with different real estate software providers. We believe that our members will enjoy the integration of Rapattoni MLS and Cloud CMA, and it will help them provide added value to their clients.”

Brad Bjelke, Executive Vice President of Rapattoni, said, “We take great pride in our SSO technology, and we believe that offering our customers flexibility and integration within Rapattoni MLS allows real estate professionals to have the best software and features available to do their jobs. The team at W&R Studios was a pleasure to work with, and we know this integration will be a win for both Rapattoni and Cloud CMA.”
