RISMEDIA, March 7, 2007-MetroList Services Inc. has successfully completed the process of outfitting its subscribers with a new Rapattoni SecureLogon Token.
SecureLogon Tokens are used with user names and passwords to increase security prior to subscribers accessing multiple listing service (MLS) content. The added level of data security is the newest feature touted by MetroList® as businesses across the country take additional steps to improve computer database access control. More importantly, SecureLogon was the first step in providing MetroList subscribers with full reciprocal access to the San Francisco Association of REALTORS® MLS (SFAR) and Bay Area Real Estate Information Services, Inc. MLS (BAREIS) through the Quattro Data-Share Agreement.
"Completion of phase one of the Quattro implementation plan is a significant milestone," said Tom Beede, president and CEO of MetroList Services Inc. "Now our subscribers have full reciprocal access to MLS listing information in 15 Northern California counties with a population of 5.6 million people which is greater than the population of the state of Minnesota. Quattro is an amazing advancement as we are constantly looking to add value for our subscribers and participants to help them list and sell more real estate for their clients."
Quattro Data Share was launched last year by SFAR, BAREIS and MetroList as a way to share data among their MLSs and increase value for their Subscribers. The data sharing agreement greatly enhances the ability of real estate agents to more effectively serve their clients throughout northern California. On April 10, 2007, phase two implementation will be complete with the addition of a new central data depository (Quattro) where Subscribers can access all listings through a secure online Web site. Participants can also contract for a single, combined data feed offering operational efficiencies not possible before.
Quattro counties include Sacramento, Placer, El Dorado, Yolo, Stanislaus, San Joaquin, Western Merced, San Francisco, Napa, Solano, Mendocino, Sonoma, Lake, Marin and North San Mateo.
