SIMI VALLEY, Calif., February 26, 2009 – Rapattoni Corporation announced today that Goomzee Corporation, the text message marketing solution provider, has successfully completed their integration of the Single Sign-On (SSO) standard. With the SSO feature in place, MLS users can log on to the Rapattoni MLS system once and access Goomzee’s marketing and lead generation platform without requiring separate logons. Goomzee is the first mobile solutions provider to implement SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) with their system. SAML technology is the backbone upon which SSO is built.
SSO and SAML allow the establishment of “trust” relationships between the Rapattoni MLS site and other Web sites for the convenience of the users. Rapattoni’s SSO program is based on open standards and allows the user to avoid repeated logons. Once the user gains access to Goomzee’s SAML compliant remote site, they can move freely between the websites. Rapattoni has been leading the charge on this open standard for the real estate industry since early 2007.
