Bellevue real estate marketing company Imprev just debuted what it calls the industry’s first “App Generator” that allows agents to build smartphone and web-based apps to give to both buyers and sellers.
One of its first apps called Drive Time will incorporate traffic data from Kirkland-based INRIX. The app helps homebuyers find out how long commutes take from work to the desired house at certain times during the day.
Imprev also announced that its Single Property Website product will utilize information from Walk Score, a growing Seattle startup best known for placing a walkability rating of 1 to 100 on homes and businesses. The new “Travel Time map visualization” shows how long it takes to walk, ride the bus, bike or drive certain distances.
Imprev is bit of an unknown entity in the Seattle technology community, even though it has been around for more than a decade. Part of that might be tied to its less than traditional path — the company never took a dime of venture capital, and has been solidly profitable for years.
