- Prevent unauthorized data distribution
RETS Data Analysis
Provides a searchable, user-level analysis of RETS usage, including number of listings and photos downloaded, total bandwidth used, etc.
IP Address Filtering
Allows administrators to permit or deny access to the RETS server based on a specific IP address or an IP address range.
RETS UPDATE Transaction
Brings full support of the RETS 1.8 UPDATE transaction to allow listing data and images to be added, edited, and deleted from the MLS via RETS. All of your MLS data integrity rules are automatically exposed in RETS 1.8 standard metadata form.
Data & Image Tagging
Provides a deterrent to unauthorized data distribution and a mechanism for identifying the responsible parties. Data tagging works by appending to selected fields the User ID of the downloading user or visible text such as “Copyright…” or Courtesy of….” Image tagging automatically adds custom information to the file headers of downloaded photos.
Data Quotas & Throttling
RETS administrators can configure a daily, weekly or monthly quota for each application group; when a quota is exceeded, the application can send e-mail alerts and suspend RETS access.
Service Level Agreement
RETS Professional customers benefit from a Service Level Agreement that guarantees the ongoing performance of their RETS service regardless of any future demands that may occur. (Includes the cost to upgrade hardware and software as required.)
