We’re making the tools REALTORS® use more accessible, streamlined and powered by one of the world’s top digital innovators: Google.
San Diego, Calif. (PRWEB) May 24, 2012
Today the San Diego Association of REALTORS® (SDAR) announces the debut of REALTOR® DASH, a first of its kind, full suite of online tools for REALTORS®, developed and powered by Google. The new dashboard will integrate Google Enterprise applications with the most common and necessary REALTOR® tools, allowing users to save an estimated two hours of work per day.
The REALTOR® DASH product is being created by Google for SDAR, to address the need for REALTORS® to have a more cohesive and streamlined system for doing business. The online dashboard will improve productivity by providing one-stop access to relevant information and tools in a consolidated and easy to use single login dashboard. SDAR will begin testing the product in late June with a full launch set for September.
“SDAR’s vision is to make our members' jobs easier,” said SDAR CEO Mike Mercurio. “We’re doing that by making the tools REALTORS® use accessible, streamlined and powered by one of the world’s top digital innovators: Google.”
The new Google-powered dashboard will provide access to all commonly used REALTOR® tools, replacing as many as eight logins with one. Example tools include:
o Multiple Listing Service (MLS)
o Department of Real Estate
o My SDAR: register for classes, networking events and more
o Local Area Disclosures forms
o Social media platforms
Furthermore, it will integrate Google’s Enterprise applications including Gmail, Hang Outs, Docs, sites, forms, Blogger and more as well as provide content and interaction to facilitate collaboration only available to members of SDAR.
All SDAR members will have access to the new REALTOR® DASH product with paid SDAR membership. SDAR REALTOR® Plus members will also receive the Google apps portion of the Google-powered dashboard at no cost. Non-REALTOR® Plus members can purchase the Google Apps portion for $19 before Sept 30 and $35 after Oct 1.
REALTOR® DASH will debut at the 2012 REALTOR® Expo and Conference on May 30. Attendees will have the opportunity to register to test the Google Apps version of the product at that time. The full REALTOR® DASH product will be available in September. For more information on the SDAR Expo, please visit http://www.sdar.com/Events.
