IRES was the first MLS in the country to offer DocuSign® integration, providing subscribers with the ability to e-sign contracts effortlessly without ever leaving the IRESis Contracts System! Both systems are wildly popular, don’t miss out. Learn more by taking our class “Create & DocuSign Online Contracts”. Or jump in by clicking the “Contracts” link on the IRESis Start Screen.
ColoProperty.com®, was updated with an attractive user interface. New options to create an account, save favorites and compare listings were well received by brokers and the general public.
After the ColoProperty® redesign, there was a significant increase in visits, unique visitors, page views, and a huge percentage in return visitors. IRES is proud to report that according to ListHub statistics, ColoProperty was declared the NUMBER ONE web site for viewing Northern Colorado listings (ahead of all other sites including Trulia and Zillow)!
For Brokers, automated email capabilities were added to the ColoProperty.com® Usage Report allowing brokers to show their clients the amazing listing exposure their home receives. Find it under the “Reports” tab in IRESis.
The new IDX Property Search Facebook app was introduced, allowing visitors to search all active MLS listings on any broker business Facebook page for a low cost. View videos on the Training Screen under the Resources tab or play with it now on our Facebook page.
IRESis Contracts received a facelift! Screens were modernized, work-flow clarified, and obsolete functionality removed. These changes were in alignment with IRES’s long term goal for supporting tablets (iPad, etc).
Realist, IRES’s public records provider, released a “lite” version of their public records system for use on the iPad and other tablets. To use it, log in to IRESis on your iPad and click the Public Records icon.
IRESis Mobile, www.iresis.com/mobile, was optimized for tablets. Pages now enlarge to the screen size of the tablet, making it simpler to use and easier to read.
The “Any Change” option in Prospect Searches was changed to “Any Status Change” ensuring brokers receive pertinent status changes and avoid irrelevant ones. Learn how to use Prospects in our class “Automate Client Searches with Email & MySite”.
New Construction fields in Add/Edit were changed so that To Be Built and Under Construction properties may be easily identified for statistical purposes and clarification for buyers.
Find, the national property search option available in IRESis, announced several updates throughout the year including a “jump to favorite report” feature, one click “map it” directions, flexible property type and status searches, increased neighborhood coverage, results breakdown by MLS, and an option to more easily view property details. Learn more in our class “Explore Properties Nationwide with Find”.
