Green MLS Continuous Improvement
Good Green MLS design is constantly evolving to keep up with changing products, technology and green building standards. If your Green MLS has already gone green and you are looking for the latest information and lessons learned to improve your offering you have come to the right place.
What's New in this Version of the Tool kit
The Green MLS Tool kit is divided into three sections:
The most important update for existing Green MLS is to Understand the Big Picture and Begin with the End in Mind: Design for the Right Audiences. You will learn why it is the community around the Green MLS combined with a strong field documentation policy that makes for good Green MLS and not the Green MLS platform itself.
The Step-by-Step process section takes our existing resources and packages them so that you can move towards a Green MLS design with higher usage rates and better data integrity most quickly. Case studies are now linked to one of the specific steps as an illustration of best practices in each area. You can also find case studies in their own Case Study section as well as Additional Resources.
If you are planning the first rollout of Green MLS for your area, please check out the Getting Started section first.
