RISMEDIA, September 13, 2010—Discover Software, Inc. announced that its flagship product, Discover MLS, is now available nationwide. Nearly three years in the making, this state-of-the-art multiple listing service software is one of the industry’s first and only Web 2.0 solutions, designed from the ground up to harness the power of Adobe Flash. Leveraging this powerful platform, the application includes ground-breaking features such as seamless multi-tasking, real-time search count, an active search results grid, and exclusive performance-boosting cache technology. Discover also boasts full support on all operating systems and Web browsers, a 99.9% uptime guarantee (with no daily maintenance windows), and zero-downtime upgrades. With a business plan as innovative as the software, Discover is proud to offer traditional full-service and turn-key options, plus another industry first: an open-source licensing option.
Discover was recently incorporated by a small group of partners with more than 40 years of combined real estate industry experience. As the technology team behind the California Association of Realtors®’ (C.A.R.) subsidiary California MLS, Inc. MLS software, these long-time industry colleagues have assumed full operation of the software. In addition, Discover has signed a multi-year contract with Multi-Regional Multiple Listing Service, Inc. (MRMLS) as part of MRMLS’ merger with calREDD to operate as the statewide MLS, which now serves more than 35,000 Realtors in California.
Bret Wiener, president of Discover, said: “This is an incredibly exciting time for us. Over the past two years, our team has proven itself capable of delivering software at a blistering pace, with exceptional quality and support, and our head start in the Web 2.0 and SOA paradigm shifts positions us perfectly to compete and win accounts—both today and well into the future.”
“We have a lot of faith in Bret and his team, and we are eager to watch their success story unfold as they take Discover MLS nationwide,” said C.A.R. President Steve Goddard.
Art Carter, CEO of MRMLS, said: “Discover MLS will play a critical role in our plans to provide one database for all California real estate. By adding this application to our offering, we can provide new members access to all the best MLS technology the market has to offer.”
Discover’s well-structured and experienced management team includes: Bret Wiener (President), Isaac Abecassis (CTO/CFO), Prem Jain (Director of Software Development), and Warren Andrich (VP, Sales and Marketing).
