immonex is an umbrella brand for various real estate related software solutions and services with a focus on german-speaking markets/users.


OpenImmo-XML is the de-facto standard for exchanging real estate data in the german-speaking countries. Here, it is supported by almost every common software solution and portal for real estate professionals (as import/export interfaces).

Plugins like immonex OpenImmo2WP [2] are used to import OpenImmo-XML data into the specific WordPress/theme/plugin data structures of the destination site.

Das Plugin eignet sich sehr gut, um vorhandene Immobilien auf seiner Wordpress-Seite darzustellen. Die Einstellmöglichkeiten sind manchmal nicht ganz so einfach, aber wenn man sich ein wenig damit beschäftigt, versteht man es. Hervorheben möchte ich auch den Support. Sehr schnelle Antworten und extrem hilfsbereit!
Das Plugin bietet alles was zu einer richtig guten Immobilien Website gehört. Dank einfacher Konfiguration, gut durchdachter Struktur und ausführlicher Dokumentation kommt man hier schnell zu ansprechenden Ergebnissen. Auch die Anpassungsmöglichkeiten lassen kaum Wünsche offen.
Das ist wirklich selten: Eine richtig gute, professionell entwickelte Software, eine umfangreiche, deutschsprachige Dokumentation und ein Support, der seinesgleichen sucht. Kompetent, reaktionsschnell und lösungsorientiert. Danke an Carsten Scheuer und das Immonex-Team für Software und Support.
Das Plugin ist perfekt um eine Immobilienwebsite aufzubauen. Es gibt eine sehr ausführliche Dokumentation und es wurde an alles gedacht. Sollte einmal etwas fehlen wird einem sofort vom Entwickler geholfen!
