Matrix 7.0 offers dreamy new functions to make your customers' home search a happy experience

My Florida Homes Multiple Listing Service has launched Matrix 7.0, which includes new features such as a redesigned client portal and agent webpage, client portal notifications, new headers and footers options, and updated IDX searches.

The signature feature of the updated version is a redesigned client portal geared at enhancing and simplifying your customer’s user experience. The new client portal allows for improved mobile-responsive displays that give you and your customers the freedom to easily view and navigate the site from all devices — desktop, tablets, and phones.

The client portal activity notifications keep you plugged in to your client’s activity on the client portal. You can be notified of client activity via an immediate e-mail, immediate text, or a daily summary e-mail. Being in the know allows you to get direct insight into your client’s property search wishes.

Matrix 7.0 - The Basics

What are the main updates?
*Redesigned client portal, including mobile-responsive displays
*New agent headers and footers
*Portal activity notifications, including text messages
*Updated IDX searches
*LisTrac integration
*INRIX Drive Time search

Can my client leave notes for me on specific properties?
There is a “Notes for you and your agent” comment box on any listing’s “Full Property Details” page. Click “Add Note” to leave a comment. Comments will show up in your messages menu.

Where is the mobile portal?
This feature is no longer available. Since the portal is now responsive, meaning you can easily view it on any mobile device, users will experience the same client portal no matter which device they access it from.

Can I upload my own custom header and footer?
You can choose from 25 predesigned headers or upload your own custom header.
Footers will not contain images but the Print Footer section will allow you to enable a footer to appear on printed reports and displays.
