A Canadian real estate trade group is the latest to sign up for CoreLogic’s Matrix multiple listing service platform, adding to the more than 300,000 real estate professionals using the platform.
The 5,200-member Calgary Real Estate Board has signed a 5 1/2-year agreement for Matrix and renewed its contract for several other CoreLogic products and services, including its paperless transaction management system Document Manager and its MLS data-sharing program, Data Co-op, the company said.
The board, located in the largest city in the Canadian province of Alberta, is currently using CoreLogic’s Fusion and MLXchange platforms and will switch over to Matrix at the beginning of next year.
Earlier this year, CoreLogic announced it would install Matrix at no charge for all of its Fusion customers, some of whom had complained about Fusion’s lack of compatibility with certain mobile devices. At the time, Matrix served more than 250,000 subscribers and CoreLogic anticipated some 600,000 would have access to Matrix by the end of 2015.
“We selected Matrix because it is offers a high-performance experience on virtually all devices, operating systems and browsers,” said CREB CEO Alan Tennant in a statement.
Chris Bennett, CoreLogic’s general manager of real estate solutions for CoreLogic, said Matrix now serves more than 300,000 real estate professionals and many more are in the implementation pipeline.
Matrix received comparatively poor marks in an MLS satisfaction survey fielded by Clareity Consulting earlier this year — a showing attributed to Matrix’s rapid growth. Shortly thereafter, the company said it was hiring additional staff to offer more support to new and existing Matrix customers.
