Alaska MLS to Offer Showing Suite’s Scheduling System Free for All Members
Alaska MLS will soon provide Showing Suite’s MLS scheduling system free for its members.
San Diego, CA, June 2016 – Alaska MLS (AK MLS) will soon have Showing Suite’s free MLS showing scheduling system for all their members. The tools developed specifically for real estate agents will be available to anyone who is a member of Alaska MLS.
“At Alaska MLS, we are very excited to offer Showing Suite as a member benefit. We feel that Showing Suite provides our members with time-saving tools that align with Alaska MLS’s standards. We believe that Showing Suite’s system will be a great resource and very beneficial to our agents success.”
Mike Smith, CEO
Once integrated into the MLS software, members will be able to log on to Showing Suite through Single Sign On and schedule showings directly in the MLS. Each listing presented in FlexMLS will have a “Schedule a Showing” button to access the showing calendar linked to each agent’s account.
Showing Suite is a unique service for the MLS because they offer a base package of features for all members in the MLS at no cost. Listing agents can enable the Showing Calendar on their listings, block unavailable showing times, and confirm appointments with all parties involved via phone, text, or email.
Buyer’s agents can schedule showings in the MLS, manage buyers in their Showing Suite account, and view all confirmed showings, unconfirmed showings and showing questions on the Showing Clipboard. There’s also an option to select the duration of a showing right from the schedule request form, or select the default of 30 minutes.
Once a showing request is sent, if none of the selected showing times will work, all parties have the ability to reschedule a showing through the automated system, alerting all confirming parties. The rescheduling party can fill out a “reason for reschedule“, which is displayed for the listing agent to see.
Another feature available for the MLS is Listing Sync. Listing Sync pulls all the agent’s listings into their Showing Suite account saving them the hassle of having to manually enter listing information. Once the listings are imported into the agent’s account, Showing Suite keeps all the information organized in one place, allowing easy access to view and make changes. Any changes made to the listing within the agent’s account will automatically update in the MLS, saving them time and ensuring that the most up to date information is displayed.
When subscribers upgrade to MLS+, they are granted full access to the suite of tools available to paid subscribers. Agents can gather feedback from listings with the Home Feedback system, coordinate their schedule with the Showing Calendar, take advantage of the built in Followup CRM system, evaluate performance with satisfaction surveys, give sellers increased transparency with the seller portal, and access it all on the go with the Showing Suite mobile app.
MLS+ also comes equipped with Showing Tours, an interactive tool to map out showings. Buyers’ agents have the advantage of providing a detailed showing itinerary for their clients. Instructions from the listing agent, personal reminders, and notes for the client are displayed next to each “road map”. This can all be printed, emailed to each party involved, or shared through the Showing Note app.
The Showing Note app lets buyer’s agents share all the information from showings with their clients. Like EVERNOTE for showings, this paperless tool shows listing information as well as creates a space for those involved in the showing to take pictures, notes, and videos and share it all with each other.
