HOUSTON, TX – (February 8, 2016) – BackAgent, a service provider of intranet and transaction management solutions for the real estate industry, today announces an integration and partnership with Updater, a technology platform that streamlines the moving process for buyers, sellers and renters.

“This was one of the most seamless integrations we’ve ever built,” says Ryan Missman, CTO of BackAgent. “Thanks to the open architecture on both sides of the integration, we were able to quickly and efficiently bolster our platform, providing both company’s joint clients with world-class technology to improve the client experience.”

Updater saves clients hours by streamlining the various processes associated with moving, including, but not limited to:

  • Updating Accounts: Updater can automatically update a client’s new address for any of over 15,000 businesses, including magazines, newspapers, alumni associations, charities, loyalty and frequent flyer accounts, and more.
  • Connecting Home Services: Updater helps clients set up digital services and schedule in-home installations.

  • Sending Digital Moving Announcements: Clients can create digital moving e-cards to notify friends and family of their new address.
  • Claiming Move-in Offers: Updater provides special offers and exclusive deals on moving services and expenses, such as discounts on professional cleaning, moving companies, cardboard boxes, and more.

Though the BackAgent and Updater integration officially launched today, 15 brokerages, including Weichert Realtors® Southern Coast, Brik Realty, Weichert Realtors® ABG, and Integra Realty, are already live after an invite-only beta test.

“The speed with which this integration was built further proves the demand in the market for products designed to ease the relocation process,” says David Greenberg, CEO of Updater. “We’re excited to partner with BackAgent to help our mutual clients provide a simplified moving process.”
