Let’s talk about everyone’s favorite subject: data. There’s a saying out there which goes, “Stuff in, stuff out.” Well, maybe it doesn’t go exactly like that, but you get the idea.
Congratulations! You’ve decided to implement a brand new property management system. After carefully reviewing numerous operations service providers and applications, license agreements have been signed; tenant and equipment data has been collected; and you’ve set a target date for your tenant launch. The next (and most critical) step in the deployment process is to prepare and train your property management staff – the ones who will be using the system on a daily basis.
Congratulations to Implementation Project Manager Nick Krone on receiving the 2014 Q3 Building Engines Mission Award.
I have two great passions in this world which take up most of my time: catching fish and my job here at Building Engines. The fish catching speaks for itself, but my role as BEI’s Implementation Project Manager means that my duty is to lead our new clients successfully through the minefield and on to a complete deployment which solves their business needs.
After a few months of vetting half a dozen Property Management Software providers, you finally decide on a platform. Success! However, soon after, a sense of panic overcomes you when you realize that you’re in charge of migrating EVERYTHING over to the new platform. Where do you start? Who should be involved?
By now, most property managers at least recognize that technology can deliver a competitive advantage. And according to leaders in the industry, 2014 is slated to be a record year for adoption among property owners and managers who want to leverage technology to deliver more efficient operations and exceptional customer service.
Readily available and comprehensive training programs are generally an important requirement and consideration when working with any software platform. Whether transitioning to a new operations system or simply adding staff members to their workforce, property owners and managers in commercial real estate rely on their property and tenant management system service providers to offer initial and ongoing new-user training support long after the initial contracts have been signed.
Dissatisfied with their current real estate operations management software provider’s service and limited capacity platform, Commerce Real Estate Solutions needed to make a change that would help them upgrade functionality, system reliability and service. They needed a robust, user-friendly solution with a strong focus on mobility and customer support.
Commerce Real Estate Solutions today announced the selection of Building Engines to replace a legacy system throughout their entire portfolio. The organization, which manages over four million square feet of commercial, retail and industrial property and is among the top commercial real estate brokerage firms in the Inter-mountain and Pacific Northwest region, wanted to significantly upgrade the level of functionality, reliability and service provided by their current operations management provider.
Building Engines today announced the expansion of its platform throughout the growing Urban Renaissance Group portfolio. Using its unique tools and techniques, a coordinated set of best practice activities, system checks, and a skilled deployment team, Building Engines orchestrated deployment of its operations management system throughout Urban Renaissance’s 2.8 million square foot expansion within fifteen business day.
