GeoCore 7.0 Officially Released! Read for info about GeoCore.

Classifieds, Auctions, and Directory Website Software

"GeoCore is the culmination of more than a decade of constant software development by Geodesic Solutions"


Formerly Separate Products

GeoCore was formerly split into 3 products(GeoClassAuctions, GeoClassifieds, and GeoAuctions) with potentially 3 different editions(Enterprise, Premier, and Basic). Built-in features were in a tiered structure with individual pricing. The intention was to offer our customers products based on varying feature sets to meet their application needs along with their budgetary needs. Originally, in this business, this structure was the most common way to supply larger software. However, times have changed as they always do causing us to make changes as well. With GeoCore, we have restructured our software to be one single product with value added add ons. In the process of creating this single product, features associated with our Enterprise product line were removed and placed into 4 new add ons. By combining our software into one main package with add ons, the software becomes more flexible allowing us the opportunity to meet the needs of our customers even more effectively. We will not only be able to continue to offer the best software on the market for classifieds and auctions but there will be many future advantages as well. Most importantly, development with GeoCore moving forward will be much easier, faster, and more efficient. Improvements will be exponential and will affect security, performance, implementing cutting edge technology, etc... Even Support will be much improved. All of this, will trickle down to you offering you more opportunities for SUCCESS.

Support and Software Updates Improvements

Along with our changes to the software, we are also changing how we offer support and software updates. Previously, these were grouped together and only offered on a yearly basis. Support would expire with access to software updates yearly and could only be renewed together. Well, we heard you and recognize that sometimes you don't want support and only want the updates. Or vice versa. So, we split them into two separate attributes to your license. Also, prior to GeoCore, our support services were limited to an email/ticket management system only. Access to our support staff by email/ticket system expired along with updates. Now email/ticket support will NEVER expire!! On top of that we are now offering a NEW Premium Support option which will include Live Chat Support. Our developers and staff will be available for direct contact on any support related issues with this option. Additionally, having the premium support, your email support tickets will take priority. Software Updates will expire separately but you can rest assured that we are leaving it optional and you can renew access at any time.

"Our efforts have always been to supply the best online software for classified advertising and auctions. Moving forward our efforts will continue in that same direction"

New Product Code-Named Geo-One BETA coming soon! (AKA GeoCore)

We are currently working on an exciting progression of the software, code-named GeoOne! In order to fast-track this new product, we will be releasing client preview Beta releases hopefully every 1-3 weeks, that any current customer of any of our products with a current support/update contract, will be able to download and try out. We expect to have the first Beta ready for testing as soon as 2 weeks. No date yet for when the final version will be out, as it is still too soon to predict accurately. But here is a hint: we would not be offering beta preview releases if the actual final release was close to being ready, so the final is still a ways out.

What is it you ask? As the code name might imply, we will reduce the products that we offer down to a single product, built on the shoulders of our current GeoClassAuctions Enterprise.

Stay Tuned for future developments! Discussion about this new product can be found in this forum post.

Update: The product is now officially released, officially named GeoCore! (The GeoOne name was just the "code name" used early in development before we had finalized the product name)

GeoMobile iPhone app is released, waiting list for personal app is open

We are pleased to announce that the highly anticipated GeoMobile iPhone app is ready to use on your site! We have 2 options available, either use the GeoMobile iPhone app, or get your very own personal iPhone app. There are 2 main parts: the Mobile API Addon, this is the part you download from the client area on our site and install in your Geodesic software. The addon is how the app is able to "talk to" your website, to pull up listings and such and display them in the app. The second part is the iPhone app itself. The iPhone app is what your visitors will download from the app store to use on their iPhones.

For the iPhone app, you have 2 choices, either your visitors can use the main GeoMobile iPhone app and enter a "site key" to connect to your specific site. Or you have the choice to have your own personalized version of the app, that your visitors would download and connect to your site without having to enter in any site keys.

See below for a comparison of the 2 choices you have, using the shared GeoMobile iPhone app or having your own personal iPhone app:

Both:
  • Either option requires the Mobile API addon which you can now purchase from the client area on our site. If you are interested in your own personal iPhone app, contact us first, do not purchase the addon from the client area as the personal iPhone app has different pricing. The Mobile API addon allows the iPhone app to “talk to” your website. The addon requires Ioncube, there is no Zend Optimizer option available.
  • Both use the same installation instructions to install the Mobile API addon in your Geodesic software.
  • Both can use the latest version of the app, and get updates to the app going forward.
  • Both have leased pricing options, although the specific price is different, and the access to software updates is tied to the leased license.
  • Both require the latest version of the Geodesic software, version 6.0.4 or higher to run.


GeoMobile iPhone App (Shared by All Sites)
  • To start using the shared GeoMobile iPhone App on your site, just purchase the Mobile API Addon from the client area on our site, then follow the installation instructions.
  • Your visitors download the shared GeoMobile iPhone app, and enter in your unique site key to connect to your specific site.
  • Your “site name” is displayed, but all other app text is not changeable and only available in English.
  • All text, images, and colors are not able to be customized.
  • Since your visitors use the GeoMobile app that we publish, they automatically get updates that we make to the app.

Pricing (as of the post date, pricing subject to change):

Lease Option Setup Fee Leasing Cost Due at first payment
Every Month $49 $12 per Month $61 (setup fee + first month)

The first payment will include the $49 setup fee, plus payment for the recurring option you wish to use. You can cancel payments at any time if you no longer wish to use the GeoMobile iPhone app.

Pricing: (as of the post date, pricing subject to change):

For leased options, first payment will include $249 setup fee, plus payment for the recurring option you wish to use. You can cancel or stop making lease payments at any time, at which point your personal iPhone app will no longer work with the site.

For the paid license option, the first and only payment will be $599, and you will be able to use the personal app "forever". No additional payments are required unless you wish to update the app.
