We are delighted to share news of another industry-first for mio!
The launch of mio’s chain view API means that, for the first time, all parties involved in a sale or purchase can access a single view of the chain. With the new API, all third parties, not just agents, can integrate with mio and benefit from a clear and visually-pleasing, GDPR compliant view of the entire chain.
mio’s new chain view API follows in the footsteps of the recently-launched milestone update API, which increased the number of mio milestones within the platform that are automatically updated via trusted data feeds from the Surveying, Conveyancing and Mortgage Broking sectors.
Commenting, Emma Vigus, Managing Director of mio, said:
“The mio chain view is embraced by Estate Agents; available to Buyers and Sellers; proactively populated with trusted data feeds; simple to deploy and interpret; and compliant with data protection legislation. It will have a positive impact on transaction times and fall throughs and be a great asset to any party involved in a sale or purchase.
Our API means that we can now offer something of real value in exchange for status updates on each transaction that, for example, a Conveyancer is working on. These updates will be used to automatically populate milestones in the mio sales progression platform. Buyers and sellers are updated via the mio consumer app and sales progression becomes far easier for Estate Agents. We will continue to focus on increasing the amount of data in mio to benefit Estate Agents, but some Agency branches are already benefiting from close to 60% of mio milestones being fed from automated updates.”
Commenting on the launch of the new chain view API, Peter Ambrose, Director of Award-Winning Property Solicitors, The Partnership said:
“We have always been very proactive about sharing the information we have with estate agents through our agent portal, but for too long we’ve felt like a “lone voice” in the property market. We’re excited to be one of the first to have a shared view of sales progression activity across all of our chains, not only so Estate Agents have a better idea of what’s going on, but also so our Conveyancers can benefit from increased visibility and a better understanding of where any hold ups are. Sharing this data is a mutual win for all involved.”
