Market Snapshot® reports moving to web API and Top Producer® X CRM

June 8, 2020

We’ve got some great news for Market Snapshot® report subscribers. Over the next couple of months we will be upgrading your reports to a new platform that meets the new industry data standards, one MLS at a time. 

3 reasons to celebrate

One, we will be retiring the Market Snapshot® control panel, and providing all the same functionality (plus more!) inside Top Producer® X CRM. One login for both products with a new, modern interface! 

Two, we will start pulling MLS data for your reports from a new web API that uses the new industry-standard RESO data dictionary, instead of an old RETS data feed. This means:

  • Standardization of data between Market Snapshot® and all MLSes

  • Greater data security

  • Improved stability, which means less downtime and greater data availability

Three, you will be able to preview your Market Snapshot® reports in real time before you send them — a feature many of you have asked for. Moving to the new web API means we can make improvements to Market Snapshot® reports in a much more timely manner, and also develop new functionality using MLS data — like the new property insights feature in Top Producer® X CRM

Accessing your Market Snapshot® reports

We will be migrating Market Snapshot® reports to the new platform one MLS at a time. If you’re thinking “huh?!”, don’t worry. All you need to know is this.  

When your MLS is migrated:

  • You will create, modify, start, stop and view the performance of your Market Snapshot® reports inside Top Producer® X CRM 

  • We will put handy instructions and links in Top Producer® 8i and the old Market Snapshot® control panel, so you’ll know exactly what to do

  • All of your existing Market Snapshot® contacts and reports will already be inside your CRM account, so you can manage all of your contacts and communications in one place

  • Your existing Market Snapshot® reports will continue to be sent on the same schedule

  • Existing reports will also be automatically converted to the new industry-standard RESO data dictionary, so you will use the same criteria when you search your MLS or create a report

  • Reports can easily be modified inside Top Producer® X CRM, using the new extended fields based on the RESO data dictionary

  • You can always contact our support team for assistance: 1-877-909-6624

If your MLS board has not yet been migrated, you can continue to access Market Snapshot® reports as you do today, via Top Producer® 8i or the Market Snapshot® control panel. You can also create, start and stop your reports in Top Producer® X CRM

When does all this happen?

We will begin migrating all Market Snapshot® reports to the new web API in June 2020. We will migrate each MLS one-by-one, and expect to be done in July 2020. 

Better for your clients, better for you

There are many reasons to be excited about the migration of Market Snapshot® reports to the new web API and Top Producer® X CRM

One password to remember. Real-time previews of your reports. A standardized search between your MLS and your Market Snapshot® reports. Plus, this opens the door to other new possibilities, like map search and search by school district. 

We’re excited. We hope you are too.
