Program Description

Canopy MLS is converting to a new Matrix system to make the database even better. Adopting the Real Estate Standards Organization (RESO) Data Dictionary, the common language that allows data to be easily communicated and interpreted by a wide range of systems and databases, at the core (native) level when listings are entered into Matrix, better ensures the data you enter will be consistent whether you’re looking at Matrix, a brokerage website or OneHome™.

This conversion includes numerous benefits to brokers, technology vendors and MLSs!

Join us for this program and find out what exciting changes are coming your way including:

  • New Add/Edit entry screens (with automatic geo-coding!)

  • One Residential Add/Edit that combines Single Family, Condominiums and Townhouse (which will be separated)

  • A new property type for Commercial Lease

  • New Property Data Forms

  • New search fields

  • New drop-down choices in fields

  • New reports

  • And more!
