MRIS Expands Its Growing Portfolio of Products to Bring Customers Moby

MRIS is bringing Moby to customers through, as a further commitment to keeping its customers safe

MRIS, the Mid-Atlantic’s real estate Multiple Listing Service (MLS), has partnered with Moby to bring its leading real estate personal safety app directly to its 42,000 customers. With the Moby app MRIS customers can share location information, send alerts, or automatically request assistance from emergency services.

“Safety is a top priority in the real estate industry, and MRIS is pleased to partner with Moby to introduce the latest technologies to enhance existing business and security plans,” says John L. Heithaus, Chief Marketing Officer at MRIS. “Moby leverages leading GPS and professional monitoring technologies to keep our customers protected while doing their jobs, which helps ease the concerns of friends, family members, and colleagues. MRIS is bringing Moby to customers through, as a further commitment to keeping its customers safe.”

Designed to keep safety in reach, Moby is a smartphone app that alerts a user’s chosen contacts with a request for assistance, and provides an interactive map of the user’s location. A powerful location sharing feature provides peace of mind and added safety by sending out alerts triggered by a single button. For a small additional monthly fee, alerts can be monitored 24x7 by Moby’s security monitoring center.

“The real estate industry consists of many professional organizations whose members frequently find themselves working alone, in a new neighborhood, at night, with an unknown client, every day of the week,” says Conal Campbell, Director of Alliances for Moby. “Most of us don’t face that type of work environment or those types of risks, and we are pleased to be working with innovative organizations like MRIS that are doing whatever they can to make all aspects of selling a home as safe as possible.”
