ShowingTime beefs up its 'big data' arm with RBI acquisition

  • ShowingTime has just purchased its second real estate analytics company over the course of a few months: MRIS subsidiary RealEstate Business Intelligence (RBI).
  • MRIS says the sale will allow the MLS to focus on the MRIS-TREND consolidation and MRIS's subscribers will keep the same services they've had.
  • ShowingTime may make more acquisitions this year, but in the meantime, the company will offer unique reports that integrate showing and sales data.

ShowingTime is definitely not just a showing management company anymore. The Chicago-based firm just acquired its second real estate analytics company in less than six months: MRIS subsidiary RealEstate Business Intelligence (RBI).
