Property Data Book, iPhone App Powered by Melissa Data, Enables Instant Access to Nationwide Property and Ownership Information

Uniquely Includes Comprehensive Facts on All Types of Property for Any User; Simplifies and Accelerates Property Research Required to Fast-Track Real Estate Deals

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, CA--(Marketwired - July 23, 2014) - Melissa Data, a leading provider of contact data quality and integration solutions, today announced Property Data Book, an iPhone app offering convenient access to detailed, up-to-date property and mortgage data on more than 110 million U.S. properties nationwide. Owned and developed by Mobile Data Books, LLC, Property Data Book incorporates Melissa Data's extensive data enrichment capabilities in its cost-effective mobile platform; its scope of information is uniquely broad, spanning land, residential and commercial properties whether or not they are listed for sale. Users can access data quickly and easily without a subscription or account registration, creating significant value for homebuyers, real estate investors and sales professionals, insurers, lenders and a broad range of service and product providers.

As a mobile-only solution, Property Data Book functions in contrast to existing real estate information sites, which provide limited information in order to drive homebuyer traffic and build a lead-based business model. "Powered by Melissa Data's Property database, Property Data Book delivers thorough information to all users, including property value, type, age, size, building characteristics, last sale and mortgage deed, tax info and more," said Gary Van Roekel, COO, Melissa Data. "Ownership information includes number of owners, absentee or out of area owners, and corporate entities. Users can also access contact information associated with a particular address or phone number."

"Most mobile real estate apps are merely an extension of a corporate website. Information is limited to properties listed for sale, and only partial information is delivered to users in exchange for account signup. Deeper data requires the user to contact an agent, creating an environment more focused on developing leads and commission fees than serving up excellent data," said Constantine Vassil, founder of Mobile Data Books, LLC. "Property Data Book is dramatically different, and is all about the data. Users have an intelligent tool that considers the typical needs of homebuyers and real estate professionals, often on the go and in need of affordable, comprehensive property information in a timely fashion."

Mobile app users often indicate their biggest challenge is entering addresses on a small keyboard. Property Data Book incorporates this feedback, and includes a powerful reverse address and telephone lookup. Its custom algorithm populates data automatically after a few keystrokes, loading only correct options based on zip, city or area code provided. The app itself remains small in size, yet address entry is fast, correct and does not require connectivity to load the address or phone.

The app comes with limited free credits toward property research, and users simply purchase credits for what they use. Property Data Book can be downloaded from the App Store for free at getPDB.mobi.

@ThingsExpo Stories
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the digitization of physical assets including sensors, devices, machines, gateways, and the network. It creates possibilities for significant value creation and new revenue generating business models via data democratization and ubiquitous analytics across IoT networks. The explosion of data in all forms in IoT requires a more robust and broader lens in order to enable smarter timely actions and better outcomes. Business operations become the key driver of IoT applications and projects. Business operations, IT, and data scientists need advanced analytics t...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...

How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Red Hat's Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems, described how to revolutionize your archit...

A majority are integrating wearables, like smart watches, and more than half plan to generate revenue with APIs within the next year.
Growth hacking is common for startups to make unheard-of progress in building their business.
