Long Realty using Vision7 for software support
From one local company to another, Long Realty recently selected Vision7 Software for software development related to its Web site and Internet tools.

Including a full, searchable Multiple Listing Service for Tucson and other nearby locations, the site is “ingrained into daily operations,” according to one Long Realty representative. It also includes a Virtual Home Finder, Virtual Tours, and administrative tools for Long Realty’s nearly 1,000 agents.

Vision7's role will be the maintenance and continual improvement of the site. The partnership, arranged according to Vision7's Venture Technology Partner model, commits the two companies to a long-term partnership, through which Vision7 provides its technological expertise in exchange for royalty arrangements or equity participation.

Long Realty is southern Arizona’s largest realtor, recording $2 billion in sales during 2000.

Web site for speakers

As streaming audio is now ubiquitous across the World Wide Web and as researchers continue to dream of practical voice command computer applications, “speech” is no longer such a far-fetched subject for the Internet. Accordingly, the National Speaker’s Association has unveiled its own Web site, designed and developed locally by Ephibian.

The site provides resources for professional speakers, such as “Ask the Expert” information exchange; a searchable archive of articles, books and videos; and a searchable directory of speakers.

The NSA encompasses 38 chapters throughout the United States. Its members include educators, meeting coordinators, humorists, motivational speaks, authors and others.

Verizon adds locations

In the ever expanding wireless communications battle for a share of the Tucson market, Verizon Wireless has been further developing its presence in the Old Pueblo throughout 2001. Already the company has increased digital capacity in the city by 25 percent.

Now the national telecommunications giant will add two new retail locations: one in Oracle Village at 3964 N. Oracle Road, and one in Colonia Verde Plaza at 7245 E. Tanque Verde Road. These two new locations give Verizon a total of 10 retail stores and kiosks in the Tucson area.

Sprint offers protection

In light of the continuing danger of computer viruses, Sprint Broadband Direct has teamed with Symantec Corp. to begin offering free security packages upon installation of service during August. Subscribers will have a choice between several Norton brand products including Internet Security, Internet Security Family Edition, Personal Firewall, or Antivirus.

Nextel selling keyboards

Mobile phones are becoming more powerful than ever before, with continual advancements in data and Internet services. Now Nextel, which early this summer introduced Java enabled phones, has partnered with Motorola and Think Outside to produce portable keyboards for wireless phones. The Motorola iBoard works with Nextel Internet-ready phones to provide the ability to access the Web, launch applications, compose e-mail messages, and operate other functions.
