RISMEDIA, November 20, 2009—Onboard Informatics, one of the premier data services and technology companies for top organizations in real estate, media and technology, has announced a mobile platform enabling real estate companies and developers the power to create custom applications and mobile sites with highly accurate and flexible neighborhood content and property listings.
According to the company, with Smartphone applications and websites on the rise, Onboard’s new platform brings the trusted neighborhood content and property listings that it currently provides to leading national real estate websites, to the wireless market. The flexible delivery of both neighborhood content and listings is designed for mobile application and website developers to design custom apps to reach the growing mobile audience through a unique search experience.
Key features of Onboard Mobile include property listings, real-time photo Web service, community demographics, school information, home values, home sales trending, home sales transactions and local establishments. The platform is compliant with the most innovative GPS capabilities, such as the ability to show users the proximity to schools and nearby businesses while they are out touring homes.
According to the company, the Onboard Mobile Platform enables potential homebuyers to do their own research at their own pace. It is designed to give users quick and easy access to virtually any town’s profile – from population, income, housing trends and education to crime statistics, weather, churches, recreational amenities, recent home sales, local restaurants, and more.
“The use of mobile websites and applications is growing in leaps and bounds, especially in the real estate industry,” said Marc Siden, CEO of Onboard Informatics. “It has become increasingly evident to us as we hear from major clients who are focusing their marketing and lead generation strategies on building a mobile presence. Our success with mobile so far leads us to believe that the companies who integrate our content will differentiate themselves from the dozens of competitors entering this space.”
