v1.51 - RPR website and RPR Mobile™ for iOS/Android tablet and phone
Released June 28, 2016
The latest release of Realtors Property Resource® provides high-value integrations for users of the zipForm® and SentriLock applications (mobile-to-mobile, coming soon with a new mobile release!), as well as several enhancements for residential and commercial users. To learn more about all of the RPR updates and details, continue reading below.
zipForm® Users Can Access or Start Transactions
zipForm® users have the advantage of linking their RPR accounts with their zipForm® accounts. This integration allows select public records data fields from RPR to flow directly into many of the forms you might use in zipForm®. When you initiate a new zipForm® from RPR, a transaction is started for you inside your zipForm® account.
Linking Your Accounts
Once your accounts RPR and zipForm® accounts are connected, you have several options from within RPR's Property Details page:
- Go to the RPR homepage
- Find out more about the zipForm® and RPR integration
- Go to specific transactions for that property address in zipForm®
- Start a new transaction with the street address you have pulled up in RPR
New transactions default to the street address name, however, a user can log into zipForm® and change the folder name at a later time, to help with organization, naming files and avoiding duplication.
zipForm® Mapped Data Fields
Many zipForm® fields auto-fill with public records data from RPR. For a complete list of fields configured to move from RPR® to zipForm®, see the end of this article. It is also important to know that Listing Data is NOT passed to zipForm®, and again, NOT every field in RPR automatically populates to zipForm®.
Finally, you do have the ability to move between the RPR and zipForm® programs. When you leave zipForm® to return to RPR, a new tab in your web browser opens, and vice versa, a new tab also opens when you start a new transaction from RPR® with the zipForm® integration.
The integration between zipForm® and RPR® will help save you time and effort when preparing your next sales form.
