In mid-March 2023, the highly anticipated Runway 7 platform was officially launched, revolutionizing the proptech landscape for community developers and builders in the US and Australian markets. This groundbreaking platform, our seventh release since we started in 1997 in Australia, combines invaluable knowledge with the latest technological innovations to cater to the unique needs of community developers and builders.
Runway 7 delivers a comprehensive suite of apps that streamline processes, enhance relationships between builders and developers, and provide a platform for exceptional homebuyer experiences. This powerful combination of benefits reduces costs, eliminates redundancies, and accelerates homebuyer decision-making, ultimately granting our clients a competitive edge in the industry.
The development of Runway 7 began in 2019 with the goal of creating a completely new app platform approach, distinct from its predecessor, Runway 6. While Runway 6 utilized a modular design, Runway 7 adopts a true platform and app structure, offering a wide array of benefits to clients.
One significant advantage of Runway 7 is its user-friendly, pay-as-you-go model. Clients only pay for the apps they need, allowing them to scale up their usage as their community development project progresses. This flexibility ensures a cost-effective and tailored solution for every developer.
From a technical perspective, Runway 7's app-based structure enables faster release and update cycles for individual apps. This improves time-to-market and allows for greater customization of specific functionality, without being restricted by an all-in-one structure. This approach is similar to Google's app launcher/swapper, which launches apps within seconds.
Another critical feature of Runway 7 is the seamless integration between all of its apps. This ensures that data updates are automatically reflected across multiple apps, streamlining operations and improving overall efficiency. Runway also integrates with leading platforms such as Mailchimp, Hubspot, WordPress, Salesforce, JD Edwards, SAP, and MS Dynamics.
In summary, the official launch of Runway 7 marks a new era in proptech for community developers. Its revolutionary platform and app structure, combined with a user-friendly payment model, super fast performance, and seamless app integration, make it an indispensable tool for developers looking to optimize their projects and stay ahead of the curve.
