MORGANTOWN, W.Va., Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ListHub, the leading distributor of property listings to U.S. and international publisher websites and provider of performance metrics in real estate operated by Move, Inc., (NASDAQ: MOVE), announced a new software integration agreement with Showing Suite, Inc., a leading provider of technology for scheduling real estate showings and showing feedback tools. The integrated product will offer showing data along with the online marketing analytics available in ListHub marketing reports.
The combined reports will integrate web analytics and showing results to deliver insights for brokers and agents, as well as their seller clients, to improve the efficiency of online and offline marketing activities. The integrated reports will be available for purchase from ListHub.
"ListHub's goal is to provide brokers and agents with a comprehensive view into the success of their marketing, and this agreement with Showing Suite represents an important step toward including offline marketing insights alongside the online analytics we provide to our customers," said Luke Glass, general manager of ListHub. "For broker and agent customers who use both products, they will now be able to leverage one single consolidated report instead of two."
ListHub reports provide valuable insights around marketing efforts to real estate brokers, offices and agents by consolidating listing visibility across a broad array of websites, including publishers such as realtor.com®, Zillow and Trulia, as well as franchise, multiple listing service (MLS), broker and agent websites.
With the Showing Suite integration, brokers and agents who use ListHub and Showing Suite will have access to enhancements to their ListHub reports that include the number of property showings, as well as feedback provided by prospective buyers during showings.
"We are excited about our agreement with ListHub," said Rick Bengson, CEO of Showing Suite. "We have been a participant in the ListHub publisher network for many years, and our shared clients have already seen the benefit of our two companies working collaboratively to provide added value to their business. This integration is another step forward for brokers and agents to have access to the best possible technology mix while maximizing their ease of use."
The enhanced ListHub reports also include a seller report that combines qualitative feedback from interested buyers with quantitative data from web traffic in a single marketing update reports provided by agents, which offers consumers a new level of transparency into the marketing results of agents.
"Seller clients love ListHub reports, and they also love to see the feedback from showings," said David Bramblett, a Realtor and a top producer with Century 21 Nature Coast in Crystal River, Fla. "I am thrilled that I will now be able to provide both to my clients effortlessly in one single update. Any software program that makes my job easier and benefits my clients at the same time is a welcome addition to my business. My clients will benefit from having access to a complete view of the marketing that we are doing to sell their home."
The integration is planned to commence in 2014.
