Open Architecture — What it Really Means to Associations and MLSs

APIs open the internal architecture of a service to others and the result is often a service of much greater value than the sum of the parts. The most popular data sources accessible through a published API include household names such as Facebook, Google Maps, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, Flickr, and Pinterest. Open architecture in the real estate realm works the same way … or it should.

The AMP Value Proposition for MLSs and Associations

AMP™ offers benefits to the MLS well beyond anything that current technology is capable of offering. As you consider each benefit, remember AMP™ is not a replacement for your MLS service. Rather, it is an alternative to your MLS system technology. The purpose of AMP™ is not to replace current personnel but to give them better tools with which to serve the membership.

The Benefits of AMP™

The mission of RPR’s Advanced Multi-List Platform™ (AMP™) is to help MLSs of all sizes to expand the type, quantity, and quality of tools and applications offered to their subscribers. What drives AMP’s innovative technologies—which are leveraged by the same technologies that support RPR’s nationwide, parcel centric database—can be summed up in two words: choice and flexibility.
