CAMBRIDGE, ON – August 27, 2019
Lone Wolf Technologies (Lone Wolf), the North American leader in residential real estate technology, and Updater, the nation’s leading relocation technology provider, today announced a partnership between their two organizations. This partnership will connect Lone Wolf’s transaction management solutions, zipForm® Plus and TransactionDesk, to the Updater platform and create an unrivaled client experience for buyers and sellers moving into new homes.
Real estate brokerages and agents will enable this integration directly within their transaction solution. Property information will sync between the two companies’ programs and invite buyers and sellers to create an Updater account. With Updater, home buyers and sellers enjoy a simplified moving experience, while brokerages and agents differentiate their client offering.
“We’re thrilled to announce our partnership with Updater and bring this helpful service to our mutual customers,” said Jimmy Kelly, CEO of Lone Wolf. “This partnership further expands Lone Wolf’s technology ecosystem and represents another step forward in our mission to simplify the real estate experience for all. With an integration between our industry-leading transaction solutions and Updater’s state-of-the-art moving app, we’re able to help real estate agents and brokerages across the country deliver an unmatched client experience.”
