This month, Eyesore, Inc. acquired Southern Web's CaptureIDX software solution for real estate agents and brokers.
Why did this software acquisition occur?
Southern Web grew their IDX system to serve dozens of clients and several multiple listing services in many states. In order for the software developed by Southern Web to continue to keep up with the requirements and constant demand of both brokers and their clients, Southern Web found a team in Eyesore that could not only support the software but help it grow to the next level.
Who is Eyesore?
Based in Griffin, Georgia, Eyesore is a digital agency powered by Polyglot Labs that builds websites and apps. You can learn more about Eyesore here.

Will Southern Web's employees join Eyesore?
