The Client supports a full service listings system application which is in use by approximately 300 firms.  Their products include but are not limited to the full service listing application supporting both the agent end user and data entry, a mobile listings application, a variety of listing feeds, off the shelf and customized VOW options, and marketing services which consist of custom brochures, an interface with the New York Times' Ad times 2000 and a proprietary advertising tool known as Premium Marketing Opportunity (PMO).  The Client has a long standing history of successful data conversions, integrations, and development of customized business solutions.
