Congratulations to Implementation Project Manager Nick Krone on receiving the 2014 Q3 Building Engines Mission Award.
The days of flipping through ads of a phonebook are over. Sending a pamphlet through the mail gets placed in the junk pile without a second thought. If a customer is going to find you, it’s going to be online. And in a highly competitive Commercial Real Estate market, your online image can go a long way. With so many search results available, it takes just seconds to diagnose whether you’ve found what you’re looking for or not.
As our use of smartphones and tablets – and the business apps we use on them – continues to increase, our need for those apps to be available and functioning is becoming more and more “mission critical.”
We’re excited to be attending and sponsoring BOMA Boston’s annual Fallfest, which takes place tonight at 5:30 p.m. at the Hard Rock Cafe in Boston.
This month’s customer spotlight shines on Rosa Smith, Property Services Manager at Colliers International – Atlanta. Rosa has been with the CRE company for nearly 10 years and has seamlessly led the Atlanta division through a software switch to Building Engines.
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.
Property Managers, Coordinators, and Engineers: It’s no secret that your time is always in demand, and your tenants expect quick, well-informed responses on a variety of questions and concerns. But sometimes those responses hinge on a third party – more specifically, your property management software provider.
That’s what they say about fashion and food anyway. But after having the opportunity to attend and participate in the recent IREM Asset & Property Management Symposium in San Francisco, it may just have some truth for real estate as well.
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?
Benchmarking is the process of comparing one’s business processes and performance metrics to industry best practices from other similar companies. The metrics that are typically analyzed are those that focus on efficiency, reducing costs, and improving performance.
Building Engines is excited to announce that we’ve upgraded our current preventive maintenance (PM) library to one based on recommendations from the General Services Administration (GSA).
Your company just bought new property management software, and like any new purchase, you want to take it out for a spin. But unlike say… a new 2014 Maserati GranTurismo that only needs a lead foot and a tank of gas to operate, your property management platform offers you a multitude of ways to get started – which can leave you feeling a bit overwhelmed. Luckily, I’m here to steer you in the right direction.
A well-worn aphorism tells us that “if you’re not moving forward, you’re moving backwards” – a notion that presupposes that the world – your world, your business, and your competition – are always moving. So you too must move with them, or better yet ahead of them, if you plan to succeed. In business, change is a synonym for movement, so if you are not fostering change, then you are standing still.
I suppose I feel a little like Penn and Teller – about to share secrets from the murky world of sales, exposing my peers in SaaS technology companies and incurring their wrath. But if it makes for good ratings (or shares/retweets in this case) I’m told it’s worth it by my marketing colleagues.
