CoreLogic’s press release follows;
IRVINE , Calif., October 1, 2013—CoreLogic® (NYSE: CLGX), a leading residential property information, analytics and services provider, today announced that the Centralized Real Estate Information Service (CRIS) and the Northern Ohio Regional Multiple Listing Service (NORMLS) have entered into a new five-year agreement to license the Matrix™ suite of multiple listing products and services.
“The decision to contract with CoreLogic for its Matrix platform was the result of extensive research, investigation, and actual hands-on testing by our MLS vendor task force,” said John Kurlich, CEO of CRIS. “Ultimately, the group decided that Matrix offers not only a state-of-the-art system with the speed, flexibility and mobility required in today’s real estate market, but also the ability to adapt to—and take advantage of—technological advances yet to come.”
“Homebuyers and sellers expect to be able to communicate with their agent any time they have a question,” said Carl DeMusz, president and CEO of NORMLS. “With its standards-based HTML design, Matrix gives our members the freedom to access the MLS directly using the device of their choice, including the iPhone®, iPad®, and Android™-powered smartphones and tablets. Matrix enables a new level of mobility and responsiveness for Northern Ohio real estate professionals.”
Matrix will be the MLS platform for the Northern Ohio Real Estate Exchange (NEOHREX), a collaborative listing database maintained for the mutual benefit of both organizations and their combined membership of more than 9,000 real estate professionals. CRIS and NORMLS plan to cut over to their new Matrix system in March 2014.
“Matrix continues to find favor in new markets thanks to its tremendous performance and compatibility,” said Ben Graboske, senior vice president of Real Estate and Financial Services for CoreLogic. “As technology rapidly changes, more and more MLS organizations are looking for an enterprise platform they can count on to work no matter what computing device or operating system their members decide to use tomorrow. We’re proud that premier organizations like CRIS and NORMLS continue to choose Matrix above all others.”

So far Matrix is overly complicated and makes my job more difficult. It requires backward thinking when narrowing comp choices by deleting checked comps instead of deleting those not checked. Then when you want to print out your comps, you have to go back to the top of the page in order to check all. Then you have to go back to the bottom to get to the print command. Then to copy the main photos for each comp, you have to click next at the bottom of each listing instead of just clicking an arrow at the top of the page. Very click intensive. Takes me twice as long as it used to. Not happy.
