Brands encounter that same question. While individuals might answer with a carefully crafted elevator pitch, brands answer with a succinct tagline or slogan that, among many things, highlights value and distinguishes the brand from others.

Get More Value Out of Your Lease Management Software RFP With These Questions

By Meredith Beasley | Lease Management Software

One of my favorite TV shows is The Office. If you watch it religiously like me, you know the Dunder Mifflin Scranton branch is famous for their time-wasting antics, including pointless meetings, awkward birthday or holiday celebrations, and even murder mystery games that take up the entire day. These hilarious, and sometimes cringeworthy, situations are the heart of the show and the reason why it’s so relatable. We’ve all encountered instances that seem to lack the “time is money” attitude and they can leave us feeling quite frustrated 

When looking for the right lease management software vendor, an RFP is a great way to ensure that you’re using your time efficiently. In a nutshell, the RFP process helps you highlight your needs and expectations so that you can easily identify the right option for you. Thus, it’s important to ask effective questions that add the most value to your search.

Consultative Brokerage and CRE Software Customer Portals

By Meredith Beasley | Customer Portal

On September 23, 1962, TV viewers of all ages journeyed to the futuristic Orbit City. Here, they met one of the most legendary families in TV history, The Jetsons. Viewers were given a glimpse at the charming possibilities of tomorrow, like floating buildings and flying cars, and some groovy inventions that actually exist today, like smartwatches, video chatting, and 3-D printing.

 Though the show only aired for one season, The Jetsons still remains an iconic symbol of our vision of a dreamlike future and the technology that comes along with it.

Take the commercial real estate industry, for example – sure, our buildings don’t float, and we can’t fly to work, but advancements like digital signatures and “smart” buildings have transformed our interactions and business cycles.
