New York, NY (PRWEB) August 14, 2014
Onboard Informatics, the largest and most trusted Local Data as a Service provider, announced the inclusion of RLS IDX, the first New York City MLS listings, as part of their Platform. Onboard’s IDX Listings Search Engine is designed to allow the integration of IDX search capabilities in MLS board-approved websites. This will now include New York City.
In addition to New York City, the Onboard IDX API is a single access to IDX data from more than 100 MLS’s nationwide including nearby MLS’s such as Long Island Board of Realtors, NYBBOR -Brooklyn, and Staten Island Board of Realtors.
“As a New York-based company, Onboard is thrilled with the announcement that IDX is finally coming to our backyard,” said Jonathan Bednarsh, Onboard President and COO. “We're excited to add this to the full spectrum of local data we offer and are honored we were asked to be one of the first providers.”
Onboard is offering the NYC IDX in two packages: The IDX Enterprise, which includes full access to all the data sets in the Onboard API Platform, and the IDX with New York City Pulse.
“We’re a New York company and we understand New Yorkers,” said Marc Siden, Onboard CEO. “We put together the NYC Pulse package to include the things that are important to New Yorkers: transit, neighborhood data, school data, and points of interest which automatically syncs to Yelp. That’s a package you’ll only find here at Onboard.”
The listings will include rentals and will bring a new level of transparency for consumers looking for available real estate.
“New York City listings have been fragmented for years,” said Siden. “This levels the playing field so consumers have access to all the available properties in the city and can work with the broker of their choice.”
