Real estate software provider BayNet World has integrated ESRI’s RouteMap IMS into BayNet’s PocketMLS wireless product for the residential real estate market, the companies said in an announcement today.
ESRI provides geographic information system software. The new partnership enables real estate agents to access home listings from their local multiple listing service as well as customized maps while out in the field.
Real estate agents can search listings wirelessly, e-mail listings to clients and receive e-mail maps, property photos and driving directions.
When out with a client, an agent can view directions to specific properties, view an area map down to the street level, and plan the best route between properties for efficient driving times. Agents also can enter a street name and pull up all properties for sale. Searches can be saved for viewing later, and listing alerts can be set to inform clients of new house matches.
PocketMLS is available on any Windows Mobile, Blackberry or Palm operating system handheld device.
The PocketMLS can access a real estate agent’s or broker’s desktop alerting application system to change contacts and client home searches from the field.
