SIMI VALLEY, Calif., March 23, 2016 – Rapattoni Corporation (Rapattoni) and Realtors Property Resource® (RPR®) have jointly announced that Rapattoni customers will be among the first real estate professionals to gain access to live listing data and other MLS resources through RPR's Advanced Multi-List Platform™ (AMP™). Rapattoni and RPR are currently working together to develop this future integration.
Last fall, Rapattoni announced that they would separate the front end interface of the Rapattoni MLS from the back end database, offering unparalleled flexibility in meeting the evolving needs of real estate associations and their members. This versatile architecture will enable the Rapattoni MLS to integrate seamlessly with AMP™ and other emerging technologies.
"We're looking to the future of the MLS business, anticipating the needs of our customers as well as the industry at large," said Brian Tepfer, Chief Technology Officer at Rapattoni. "Our MLS is being architected to facilitate integration with a broad spectrum of emerging technologies, allowing MLSs to pull listing data from multiple sources and present it in a single interface. The upcoming AMP™ integration is a dynamic example of how our MLS software will use listing information from multiple databases."
Madeleine Talbot-Leighton, Product Manager at Rapattoni, added, "We are happy to work with RPR on their AMP™ project, making the MLS more powerful for our users."
"Rapattoni is a long-time industry partner and veteran MLS system developer," said Dale Ross, CEO of RPR. "RPR is extremely pleased that Rapattoni has embraced the AMP™ concept of an open database with universal access for all licensed application innovators. Rapattoni has been a leader in providing both association management systems and MLS technology to REALTOR® associations for decades," he continued. "We look forward to working with the Rapattoni team to help them bring the promise of the AMP™ system to their many MLS clients."
