January 30, 2020 — ShowingTime, the residential real estate industry’s leading showing management and market stats technology provider, has entered into an agreement with ORTIS/OC to provide all 22 boards and their 13,800+ members full access to its online and front desk scheduling platforms that simplify the showing process for agents and admins, while also providing access to MarketStats market-wide, an in-depth local market analytics reporting tool. The agreement also gives members access to its new platform that streamlines the recording and communication of offers, ShowingTime Offer Registration*.
ORTIS/OC is the first multiple listing service to provide market-wide access to ShowingTime Offer Registration, a critical tool for Ontario-based real estate agents.
“We’re excited to expand access to our showing management and statistics products to include all ORTIS/OC members,” said ShowingTime President Michael Lane. “The introduction of ShowingTime Offer Registration illustrates our commitment to providing time-saving tools that meet the unique demands of the Ontario market. We’re confident that the use of ShowingTime Offer Registration in tandem with our showing management technology and MarketStats reports will meet the full spectrum of ORTIS/OC members’ business needs.”
ShowingTime Offer Registration is a complete resource for registering and sharing offer information on listings, in accordance with Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO) guidelines. Fully integrated with ShowingTime’s showing management platform, ShowingTime Offer Registration allows listing agents to view Form 801 (if submitted), offer presentation information for each listing and an automatically updated offer count from their desktop or phone. ShowingTime Offer Registration also enables the listing agent or admin to email all buyer’s agents in seconds using pre-populated buyer’s agent groups and templates.
“We’re pleased to partner with ShowingTime to offer our members the technology they need to succeed and better support their clients,” said Brad Johnstone, ORTIS/OC Co-Chair. Steve Dickie, also an ORTIS/OC Co-Chair, added, “Members of ORTIS/OC will greatly benefit from access to these tools, which solve many of the inefficiencies that can slow everything down.”
All ORTIS/OC members will have access to ShowingTime’s online scheduling links, which enable them to request showings electronically, while also having access to ShowingTime Front Desk, which equips admins to efficiently manage inbound showing request calls. With MarketStats, members will have an easy way to funnel market-wide data into useful reports. Agents can quickly identify, understand and report on local market trends, with the ability to export user-branded reports to share with clients. They can also post them on their website or social media accounts, with the reports updating automatically.
