We're proud to announce that iPALS 2.0 Beta 2 has been officially released by our developer. There are still a few bugs that have been discovered, but they are minor. ( 04-21-2012)
It has been a long and grueling 10 1/2 months, since the iPALS project started. During that time we went from nothing, to a system that handles company data, agent information, imports/updates and deletes listings, imports listings to multiple categories, special advanced image processing, and much more, and works on every major RETS provider, without having to make any changes to the code.
Over the past few months (while working on making a fully working RETS script), we were laying the groundwork for our new, conceptualized version of iPALS, which is our patent pending process. With the decision to add support for EZ-Realty (and other professional Real Estate listing software in the future), we decided that it would be much easier (in the long run), and better performance overall, to begin development of iPALS 2.0, with EZ-Realty being the first piece of Real Estate software that would be operational. iPALS 2.0 wasn't a minor task to take on, because it wasn't simply adding code to what we had. Our concept required a complete, and major, rewrite of the entire code base, shifting the code from a script to an actual, fully working piece of software. We have no screenshots or performance reports yet, but once iPALS shifts from BETA to Release Candidate, we'll make the announcements.
