XML2U, a data file generator that aims make adding and editing property portal listings easier, has teamed up with international property portal themovechannel.com.
Through the partnership, themovechannel.com members can have the listings on their websites automatically uploaded and updated through an XML2U data file.
"Agents no longer have the time to manually add and edit their properties on property portals, yet many do not have an affordable method to upload and update their listings automatically," explains the movechannel.com's Robin Brayne.
"Partnering with XML2U means we can offer agents an inexpensive data file generating facility. We have been trialing the system over the last three months and have seen a significant increase in agent sign ups."
XML2U says it utilises a Google-like "spidering" technology to collect the properties from the agent's website, and then generates the data file. It also provides a conversion service for agents whose data file formats are not accepted by the portals on which they wish to advertise.
XML2U charges £10 per month per branch for its service.
