Lynn Strantz, manager of system design and integration for MLSNI, said in a statement, “Our goal was to make the task of inputting or changing listing data easier and flow logically for our market. We also wanted to provide as much assistance for the users as possible within the system.” The technology features drop-down menus, the ability for the user to upload property photos and tours, and live multimedia tutorials.
