|Posting raw listing data from MLXchange into a VOW|
|Some State-Wide MLS Members already have taken advantage of Internet marketing by having robust web sites created by professional web developers in order to capture hopefully the growing population of web-based consumers. Further, Members may also want to use this effective platform to provide brokerage services to their established clients through a Virtual Office Website (VOW). Members are allowed to incorporate certain ‘raw’ listing data into their site’s on-line brokerage tools . Although re-typing this data is an option, an easier method is to export the data from MLXchange using that system’s inherent custom report and spreadsheet utilities into their site.
Benefit – high customization solution.
