Park City MLS announces transition to the Flexmls System, with the Mobile Platform key to decision.

PARK CITY, UTAH – March 9th, 2019 - Park City MLS announces transition to FBS’s Flexmls® System citing overall technology and Mobile Platform as key decision drivers. With approximately 1250 members, the Park City MLS will soon be converting to Flexmls. FBS (Flexmls®, Spark®, and Spring®) currently serves 150 MLS Flexmls customers and 240,000 current MLS member subscribers including 3 of the 4 MLSs in the state of Utah.

Park City MLS Director Bob Bemis provided details behind the decision, marking a departure from CoreLogic’s Matrix system after nearly a decade: “Given the rate at which technology is changing, and the speed with which innovation comes to the market, the board of directors performs due diligence reviews prior to every contract renewal. In doing so, they review the top systems available. During this last review, they determined that FBS’s Flexmls system was far ahead of the pack in both features and functionality. The team was particularly impressed with their mobile platform that delivers continuity across all devices and operating systems. The Board felt that the PCMLS agents would appreciate the benefits provided by a Mobile platform of this caliber as well as the numerous advanced features provided by the Flexmls Platform”.

Chuck Zuercher, President of PCMLS Board of Directors adds additional insight: “We were not looking to change vendors when we started our MLS system due diligence, but we were both surprised and extremely pleased that we did the research and discovered FBS. Their Flexmls Platform is highly rated and regarded by other MLSs clients. During discovery, we previewed a number of interesting, valuable features that were not available in our current system and that drove our decision. We think this is the perfect productivity system for our busy and demanding marketplace."

FBS National Sales Manager, Matty Epstein worked closely with Park City leadership to bring the new agreement to fruition. “Park City wanted a Partner with a proven ability to innovate, successfully navigating shifts in technology. They wanted an MLS system and a partner to provide maximum value and service that cascaded to their membership, empowering them to focus on the business of creating home owners.  We demonstrated that to them with our product, our future-focused industry vision and our company culture - as we’re 100% employee owned.  We’re honored to be chosen. I’m excited to expand our footprint in Utah with the Park City MLS added to our existing MLS clients, Iron County Board of REALTORS® and Washington County Board of REALTORS®.

The conversion will take place in late May 2019. Bob Bemis concludes, “I had the pleasure of working with Mike Wurzer and his team when we converted the Arizona Regional MLS in 2008. It was the smoothest MLS conversion I have ever seen or, been involved with. FBS has grown immensely since then and has converted an average of one system per month for the past three years. For them, conversions are no longer just a science, they’re an art form.”
