Move, Inc., a leader in online real estate and operator of realtor.com®, announced today that it has signed an exclusive agreement with PCM, Inc., a leading technology solutions provider, to produce a realtor.com® iPad solution, which will include the realtor.com® iPad Real Estate app – one of the most accurate and timely listing solutions available today – as well as a productivity suite of third-party solutions specifically designed to meet the needs of real estate professionals.
"Move is happy to bring to market a comprehensive software and technology resource exclusively with PCM that will increase the efficiency of real estate professionals," said Steve Berkowitz, CEO of Move. "Real estate professionals are constantly on-the-go and need access to their tools and information at all times. The iPad solution has many benefits as it allows real estate professionals to be more productive and efficient since it includes many of the key apps and solutions they use at various stages of the house buying and selling process. It will also allow their clients to get the responses they expect faster."
Move is committed to providing resources and decision support tools for consumers and real estate professionals to help them navigate all the home-buying cycle stages. Today, technology solutions have become a critical component in helping real estate professionals successfully build their businesses in key areas, whether it is through lead generation, transaction management or cultivating customer relationships.
PCM was an ideal alliance for Move due to the major role PCM plays in the IT supply chain. PCM has been a leading provider of IT products, solutions and services to businesses, government agencies, healthcare facilities and educational institutions.
"PCM is pleased to be working closely with Move and realtor.com® to provide great turn-key mobile solutions for real estate professionals, which allows Move to better assist consumers. Move and realtor.com® are thought leaders in developing state-of-the-art mobile productivity solutions," said Kris Rogers, Senior Vice President of Partner & Product Management at PCM.
The iPad solution will feature the realtor.com® Real Estate app, which is one of the most accurate national listing solutions available, and will additionally include more than 10 productivity applications that will benefit real estate professionals, and will be available for purchase later this spring.
