New Year, New Projects Completed

Filed under: ListingsTech,T3city — pj @ 11:34 pm

Wow, this has been a busy few months. In addition to the usual flood of small projects, since November, we’ve published these brand new sites: This was an interesting and very large project that recently went live. The application we created for this site is general purpose and can support many types of e-commerce. The backend of this site is very comprehensive and highly automated. Due to its sensitive nature, the there are multiple layers of security and a dedicated audit trail facility. This site is based on our very comprehensive and sophisticated online store engine. Our client’s goal is to compete head on with the likes of (who probably have spent hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars on their online store). We have a very full featured marketing capabilities, integrated product catalog management (with lots of JavaScript to make it friendly and easy to use), integrated order fulfillment and automated integration with in-house store inventory. Since Google is the source of so much traffic (both paid and non-paid), we support every service that Google offers: Google Base (a.k.a. Google Products and Froogle), Google Site Maps, Google Adwords, Google Checkout and Google Analytics. We have some interesting payment solutions for vendors that want to sell to non-traditional markets (overseas). All our web applications support our standard skin and content management system (see below), so just about any look and feel can be created without any programming or database changes. There is a lot of power and flexibility under the hood that is probably best demonstrated in a meeting. This is a standard ListingsTech site to market HUD homes in the metro Chattanooga, TN area. One interesting thing about this project is that we allow visitors to search across subsets of two different listings databases. We needed to do this because the databases contain all HUD listings for Georgia and Tennessee, but the site is only for Chattanooga. Another interesting idea here is the general approach of keeping the site as simple as possible – we are trying to get visitors to the information or service they want in as few clicks as possible… Want to see listings for Walker County? Click the search term on the left. Need to get prequalified for a loan? Click the link on the top of the page and fill out the form. Need more information about a listing? Click the “Contact Us for More Info” link and type your question.

Two New Sites and Engine Upgrade for ListingsTech

Filed under: ListingsTech,Programming — pj @ 11:32 pm

Did you know there are 76 homes for sale in the Arizona ARMLS MLS with:

  • 3 Car Garage
  • Horses Allowed
  • Kitchen Island
  • Private Pool
  • and RV Parking

I can run searches like this all day long on ListingsTech web sites. Not only can I run searches like this, but, as a potential buyer, I can register to have the web site notify me via email when new houses are added to the database that match this search criteria.

We just finished a major upgrade to the ListingsTech engine. In conjunction with the upgrade, we added support for Arizona’s ARMLS MLS and Vermont’s VREIN MLS along with two new customer web sites:

ListingsTech booth at National Association of Realtors Conference

Filed under: ListingsTech — pj @ 5:09 pm

ListingsTech got a booth at last weekend’s NAR show in New Orleans. My procrastination actually helped a little here… we got a pretty good both location – a corner in the middle of the trade show floor. I guess somebody canceled. After a frantic week of last minute preperations, Laurie, Robert Clments and myself packed up and drove down early Friday morning. 

The NAR show went well. We were pleased with the good list of sales leads we left with. We spent a lot more hours on the show floor than for a SEC or Exemplar Setup Toolkit trade show. Friday was 3 hours, Saturday and Sunday had 7 hours each and Monday was 5 hours. The long hours were good and bad. For the style of consultative sales we are doing, it worked out well because I had time to spend with each customer. I was talking with sales leads for almost all hours of the show. The bad part was we didn’t have much time to spend in New Orleans. Other than some nice dinners, Laurie didn’t go out at all. Robert and I went out to hear some bands and see a friend of his Saturday night. We were out late. Sunday morning started out rough!

After getting some good response on Saturday, I thought Sunday and Monday for sure would be slow. Saturday was the busiest day, but we got good leads on Sunday and Monday, too. I got a really good lead Monday right as the show was about to close. (more…)
