SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Move, Inc., a subsidiary of News Corp [NASDAQ: NWS, NWSA] [ASX: NWS, NWSLV], announced today an agreement with zipLogix™ to integrate the zipForm® Plus and zipForm® Mobile digital library of transaction documents into the Reesio transaction management platform. The agreement enables real estate professionals to streamline and simplify the paperwork process for customers, and move more efficiently through the transaction process with the confidence and security of a trusted industry solution. The agreement follows Move's September 2015 acquisition of Reesio.
Used by more than 650,000 real estate professionals across the country, zipLogix™ licenses real estate forms from more than 280 associations and brokers and is the official forms software of the National Association of REALTORS®.
ZipForm® software automates the repetitive and complex steps of the real estate transaction by digitally populating information into each form. Its integration directly into the Reesio platform will create a seamless interface and easy to manage workflow matched with stringent data security and protection protocols along the entire transaction.
"This agreement is a perfect convergence of two fundamentally aligned platforms built by real estate professionals, for real estate professionals, to help make the process easier and more efficient for our customers and for consumers," said Luke Glass, executive vice president of industry platforms for Move. "As more and more of the real estate process takes place online, working with trusted providers is absolutely critical. The integration of zipForm® into the Reesio platform offers ease of use as well as ease of mind for real estate professionals, and helps them deliver a vital service in the transaction as expert managers of this complex process."
The integration between Reesio and zipForm® strengthens Move's role as the industry's leading provider of end-to-end tools for brokers and agents to manage their clients and their business – from the first connection with a consumer through closing, and post-transaction to increase repeat and referral business.
Move recently integrated Reesio and Top Producer, Move's industry-leading marketing and client management system, and launched an integration with property information from nearly 600 multiple listing services (MLSs) across the country. The MLS integration allows Reesio's customers to initiate a transaction by easily importing the property information from the MLS.
The addition of zipForm® will empower brokers and agents who use all three products to work seamlessly between Reesio transaction management software, Top Producer CRM software, and zipLogix™ zipForm® software for completing forms.
"ZipLogix™ is excited to synchronize product offerings with Move to improve the business process and help increase productivity and efficiency for our real estate brokers and agent customers," said zipLogix™ Chairman of the Board Mark Peterson. "We are especially enthusiastic to be working closely with a company such as Move that shares the vision that great technology serves the purpose of better connecting agents with consumers, strengthening their collaboration and solidifying the agent's role in the transaction."
