WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., September 20, 2021 – Rapattoni Corporation (Rapattoni) announced today that the Lubbock Association of REALTORS® (LAR), located in Lubbock, Texas, went live with Rapattoni’s new Connect Dashboard product on September 1, 2021. Established in 1926, LAR has the distinction of creating the first Multiple Listing Service (MLS) in the state of Texas and now serves over 1,400 REALTOR® members and affiliated businesses throughout northwest and central Texas.
Continuing its tradition of providing its members with innovative new tools, LAR is the first association to launch Rapattoni’s new Connect Dashboard, enabling their members to take advantage of a modern and intuitive portal for accessing all their online tools and services. This central resource consolidates all of the sites REALTORS® rely upon with secure Single Sign-On (SSO) links and Identity Provider (IdP) services. Widgets leveraging Application Programming Interface (API) integrations provide additional tools for paying bills, registering for classes and events, viewing social media feeds, and more.
Brian Tepfer, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at Rapattoni, commented, “We were thrilled to partner with LAR to deliver our first Connect Dashboard installation. This new service helps bring together all of our other products as well as third-party services using secure SSO technologies and API integrations. Moving forward, Connect will be a key product in rapidly delivering the real estate industry’s latest technologies to our customers.”
In addition to Connect Dashboard, LAR is currently running Rapattoni Magic-Cloud AMS and the Rapattoni MLS, with Rapattoni’s new Atlas Tax service scheduled to go live for their members later this year.
“The initial response to Connect Dashboard has been fantastic! It’s already helping our members work more efficiently, giving them a simple and intuitive gateway to all the sites and services they need to run their businesses,” said Cade Fowler, Executive Officer at LAR. “Once we go live with Atlas Tax, our members and staff will be able to take advantage of the complete suite of Rapattoni products and services, with seamless integration between all of these essential tools.”
Destyn Dagle, Director of MLS Software at Rapattoni, said, “Busy agents and brokers need easy access to the extensive assortment of tools they utilize every day. LAR’s brokers, agents, and other members are going to be impressed with the Connect Dashboard’s one-click access to the applications, tools, and platforms they rely on, plus its incredible customization for quickly adding links to their favorite websites, tools, email, Twitter, and more with our expanding library of links and widgets.”
Cade Fowler added, “Rapattoni guided us through every step of the implementation and deployment process, answering all of our questions and helping us set up the new portal to provide a smooth transition for our members.”
With Connect Dashboard, LAR will be able to drive adoption of their third-party services by providing users with a central location for accessing all association resources. LAR’s staff can easily publish new links for all users or targeted groups of members, and Connect Dashboard also includes simple tools for tracking usage and login analytics to assess which services are used most.
Rapattoni Vice President of Sales Scott Quinn commented, “It is a pleasure to work with a progressive association like LAR. As stated on their website, one of LAR’s objectives is ‘to aggressively provide the tools and resources for our members to succeed.’ Adding our new Connect Dashboard product was another pivotal step to help LAR better communicate with their members, highlight all the great tools and services LAR members receive, and, most importantly, simplify the members’ online experience by providing a central SSO dashboard that brings together all the sites and services they need.”
