The administrative tools provided by Stratus allow us to easily manage our Stratus MLS system. We have found the News to be an extremely effective way to communicate with our members and the usage monitoring tools are extremely helpful for planning and budgeting. Tracking the types of documents attached to listings allows us to better educate when promoting this feature. If we have a need for other tools, Stratus is very responsive and works with us to implement the best solution available.

Stratus offers MLS staff extensive administrative tools that help manage their MLS system. Tools include usage tracking, document management, system monitoring and performance, trends and statistical reports, permission level management, third-party access, and more.
Since data integrity plays an important role in the success of all MLS systems, Stratus MLS offers numerous features and tools that insure data reliability. Stratus facilitates this by incorporating — in listings and reports — business rules and field validations specific to the MLS.
Tools for authorized staff are available, when required, to bypass business rules, reset field values across a group of listings, and track duplicate listings. Without the aid of a developer, staff can modify field help, listing reports, tables, street dictionaries, and business rules.
Most importantly, Stratus offers additional administrative tools as the MLS's needs develop.
Stratus Info Center serves as a communications hub for news and scheduled events.The MLS can tailor Info Center with links to important documents, such as rules and regulations, education offerings, reports of local market activity, legislative calls to action, links to technology partners, and other products and services offered. For Regional MLSs, each Association may have unique news, calendar, and other links.
