WAV Group performs dozens of strategic planning sessions for MLSs each year. As part of our strategic planning sessions, we survey members on satisfaction with the MLS system. One of the chief complaints among MLS Participants and Subscibers across all surveys is the desire to have Apple computers supported my MLS systems.
LPS, Marketlinx, FBS, and now Rapattoni have all been focused on achieving this functionality. Rapattoni issued a press release confirming their support of Mac based browsers this morning. This is great news for MLSs who are delivering data services on the Rapattoni platform – a move that is sure to enhance participant and subscriber satisfaction with the product. The upcoming NAR Midyear conference in Washington D.C. will offer a wonderful opportunity for MLSs to view the interface.
