iTech Will Soon Offer Showing Suite’s Free Showing Scheduling System
iTech will soon provide Showing Suite’s MLS scheduling system free for members of Glendale Association of Realtors and the Pasadena-Foothills Association of Realtor
San Diego, CA, August 2016 – Showing Suite, Inc. announces the upcoming integration of free real estate agent tools for members of iTechMLS. Owned by Glendale Association of Realtors and the Pasadena-Foothills Association of Realtors, iTech will soon provide its members with Showing Suite’s MLS showing scheduling system, which allows agents to schedule showings directly through an integrated system within the MLS.
“At iTech, we are very excited to offer Showing Suite to our members. Providing a showing service will align with iTech’s standards while giving our members access to time-saving tools. We feel that Showing Suite’s system will be a great resource and very beneficial to our agents success.”
Dan Lanning, CEO, iTech
iTech members will be able to log on to Showing Suite through Single Sign On and schedule showings directly from the MLS listing. Each listing presented in the MLS will have a “Schedule a Showing” button to access the showing calendar linked to each agent’s account.
Listing agents can enable the Showing Calendar on their listings, block unavailable showing times, and confirm appointments with all parties involved via 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.
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 and share pictures, notes, and videos.
