Has CRE Technology made us better?

By John Rice | CRE Technology , Lease Administration

A look at how CRE tech has impacted our knowledge, skills and market.

Ever wonder who would win the game if the best sports team today played the best team of 20 years ago? I mean with all the innovation in fitness, training, nutrition, and equipment certainly our athletes today would dominate their predecessors, right? Was it just Hollywood romanticism that enabled Rocky to defeat Ivan Drago or Will Smith to defeat the aliens?

Is the Crowded Lease Administration Training Market an Endorsement for Lease Administration Software?

By Guy Gray | Lease Administration , Lease Administration Software

They say that imitation is the highest form of flattery. Whether it’s in professional athletics, product development or, heck, even commercial real estate, if you’re doing something that works, other people are going to try and do the same thing.

This brings up an interesting observation. With the volume of lease administration courses, lease administration certifications and dedicated lease administration careers out there, it demonstrates how involved and intensive lease administration is. If there was a way to do better lease administration — more efficient lease administration — wouldn’t you want to consider an investment in it?

Corporate Lease Administration Made Easy with Quarem

By Guy Gray | Corporate Lease Administration

There’s probably not a person in the world who doesn’t wish they had a time machine. We all wish we could go back in the past and fix mistakes (like those acid wash jeans in the ‘80s), or take a peek into the future (to see who will win the World Series in 2020, of course). Even if you could stay in the present and simply see what the rest of the day holds, you’d take it, right?

Time travel would especially come in handy for commercial real estate (CRE) professionals. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was an easy way to avoid costly mistakes with tenants or more accurately plan for future leases? Well, there kind of is. With Quarem, corporate lease administration has never been easier.

Why Haven’t You Added Lease Administration Software to Your Workflow?

By Guy Gray | Lease Administration , Lease Administration Software

It seems as if most of our lives are automated these days.  Coffee makers start brewing at 6:00 am on the dot.  Doors swing open without a touch.  And automated callers can harass you about that 18-hour trip to Jamaica you won when you mistakenly gave out your business card at the last networking event.  Whether simplifying our daily lives or making it easier for telemarketers to spam your cell, automation is the future and it will not wait on you.  When utilized properly, automation saves time, resources and can help you and your business operate more efficiently, freeing up time for growth and development.  So, if this is the case, just why haven’t you automated your CRE portfolio needs by adding lease administration software to your arsenal of property management tools?

By Guy Gray | Lease Administration , Lease Administration Software

So you’ve finally decided to bite the bullet and enter the 21st century when it comes to managing your property portfolio.  It’s time to pick a lease administration software that fits your business’ needs.  You crack open an industry publication or perhaps, enter a few key terms into a search bar online and voila: results.  “Free two-week Trial”.  “Free 60-Day Trial”.  “Buy a year, get a free car”.

While admittedly the last of those may be an exaggeration, we aren’t far off.  Property management software companies will do nearly anything nowadays to get your business.  Anything, that is, other than make sure their software is a good fit for you and your business, in many situations.  And that means that “Free” trial run for a generic lease administration program could end up costing you big time.

Do I really need Lease Administration software?

By John Rice | CRE Software , CRE Technology , Lease Administration

A real-world look at the basics of CRE property and lease administration:

The direct and short answer is if you don’t already have a Lease Administration system in place, then no you don’t. Obviously life has gone on and operations are humming along without one. But if you have ten or more leases, then yes, you should have a Lease Administration system.
