Real estate technology provider Threewide Corp. will be offering the Variman RETS Server from The Center for Realtor Technology as part of Threewide’s ListExporter product line, the company said Wednesday.

ListExporter, a Web-based software application for managing real estate data and image exports, allows users to selectively package data and images from different sources – including multiple listing service systems – and push the data to many destinations according to a preset schedule.

ListExporter is currently used in 25 MLS associations across the country.

“By adding the Variman RETS Server to our ListExporter product, we are increasing the options our customers have in providing listing data services to brokers and third parties, while at the same time adhering to RETS standards,” said Mark Wise, Threewide’s chief product officer. “This integration with the Variman RETS Server will also enable MLSs and associations to utilize all of CRT products – such as the ezRETS ODBC Driver.”

The Variman RETS server is the second generation RETS server published by The Center for Realtor Technology. Variman provides improved security, easy to use interface and economy of computing resources. One of Variman’s unique features is the use of business rules that allow users to receive different views of the listing data. In addition, Variman can be used with any RETS-certified client when connecting to the MLS. Variman simplifies code maintenance, server deployment and has been certified compliant with RETS v1.0, 1.5 and 1.7. 

RETS, which stands for Real Estate Transaction Standard, is a standard for exchanging real estate information and providing easier access and movement of information.

The Center for Realtor Technology, part of the National Association of Realtors, provides technology research, guidance and information for the 1.2 million members Realtor trade group members.
