As Lone Wolf Expands Ecosystem and Broker Solutions, SkySlope Dissolves Partnership
Decision to end partnership comes as Lone Wolf doubles down on brokerage transaction management solutions and real estate technology ecosystem
CAMBRIDGE, ON – August 19, 2019
Lone Wolf Technologies (Lone Wolf), the North American leader in residential real estate technology, today announced the dissolution of its partnership with transaction management provider, SkySlope. This ends an integration between the SkySlope system and zipForm® Plus, Lone Wolf's transaction management solution provided to over 1.3 million real estate agents in the U.S. as a national member benefit.
"It's always a challenge to navigate partnerships with your competitors. We did everything in our power to maintain this mutually beneficial arrangement for our customers. Unfortunately, SkySlope had other ideas," said Jimmy Kelly, CEO of Lone Wolf. "While we are disappointed with SkySlope's decision, we are more committed than ever in our mission to simplify the real estate experience for all. We will continue to partner with other leaders in the technology industry and integrate with their solutions to fulfill this mission."
Lone Wolf is the real estate industry's top technology provider, servicing over 1.4 million agents, 20,000 offices, and 1,000 MLSs and Associations in North America. The company integrates with 98% of forms in Canada and the U.S., and more than 125 million forms and 23 million signings are created on their transaction management platforms every year. These platforms, which include zipTMS® Brokerage and TransactionDesk, feature a class-leading and comprehensive set of brokerage transaction management tools, including broker file review, company-wide checklists and templates, broker dashboards, and more. Lone Wolf also offers the industry's only two-way transaction-to-back office integration, Link, which significantly simplifies and accelerates transaction management for real estate agents and brokerages.
"It's unfortunate that SkySlope has cancelled our partnership, as a significant number of real estate professionals were using the zipForm® integration to simplify their deals," said Joe Kazzoun, GM of Transaction Management at Lone Wolf. "However, we do offer real estate's most complete transaction management solutions, which offer unrivalled brokerage features, forms coverage, and technology integrations, including the two-way integration with our back office system, brokerWOLF. For the tens of thousands of brokerages in North America who are looking to make their transactions simpler, and don't want to continue paying for two transaction systems, we are here to help."
The dissolution of the partnership comes as Lone Wolf expands its ecosystem of market-leading technology solutions. In the past month, Lone Wolf announced that it will integrate its transaction management solutions with Real Estate Webmasters (REW), a leading provider of websites, CRM, and lead generation services. This integration will make it possible to manage a contact from contract to close and create a true lead-to-close experience for a significant number of real estate agents and brokerages.
"We're aggressively expanding our ecosystem to include a variety of leading technology providers," said Jason Cheverton, Director of Ecosystem at Lone Wolf. "With this ecosystem in place, Lone Wolf is marching toward an unheralded marketplace for the real estate industry, one that integrates front office, CRM, transaction management, back office and accounting, and ancillary services solutions, and includes many great partners. We look forward to announcing several of these partnerships in the very near future."
