Future Proof Your MLS with Spark
The Spark API goes beyond listing data, handling elements such as Contacts, Saved Searches, and Client Favorites while maintaining hyper-local and MLS-specific fields. The Spark API supports vital RESO® Data Dictionary and Web API industry standards. With the Spark API, MLSs gain full data portability and permission-based content control.
Think of an app store, but full of data plans for Developers. It completely automates the data licensing process, bringing MLS-created Data Plans (VOW, IDX, etc.), licensing terms, pricing, automated approvals, billings and usage tracking together in one secure, convenient online space.
Key Spark Datamart Features
It's As Simple As Copy/Paste
If your MLS has its own pre-existing license agreement you can copy and paste it on the licensing tab. Developers will be required to accept terms when they sign up for a Data Plan.
To Bill or Not to Bill?
Your MLS can create and apply pricing to Data Plans as a source of non-dues revenue. If your MLS doesn’t charge fees to members, a “free” pricing plan can be created and members can continue to enjoy that great benefit.
You're Always In Control
Your MLS determines who needs to approve data access. You’re in control of setting every step up, exactly how you want it to flow. With easy access control you can automate API key creation and easily temporarily suspend or cancel data access.
