Managing a real estate portfolio is a picture-perfect example of dynamic work. It takes multiple systems and people, it spans many locations, it requires a lot of coordination and collaboration, and it drives revenue for your business. From planning and design, to deployment, through facilities management, real estate management is a massive challenge that requires the right data, tools, and people to be on the same page at the same time.
We’re excited to join MRI Ascend in Chicago to help leading real estate organizations take on these challenges. In between trips to Lou Malnati’s and Al’s Beef, we’ll be on-site to engage with real estate experts and help them solve their most critical challenges.
Location really is everything – so you should be able to see, connect, and control everything from one place. Here’s what we’ll be showcasing at MRI Ascend, and the key capabilities you can expect to learn more about at the conference.
Collaborate between the field and the office
Real estate management means people in different locations needing access to information. With FastField, you can get information directly from the source in real-time. Building connection between the people out in the field and people working in the back office enables a two-way street between the information captured in the field. Quickly and efficiently get data from the field and share it with the back office, improving communication and visibility. This is especially worthwhile for use cases like inspections, safety checks, and more – allowing for seamless interaction between what’s happening in the field and what’s happening in the back office.

Plan and execute seamlessly
Managing a real estate portfolio takes a lot of time and effort, and coordinating a lot of data. That time can’t be wasted on manual tasks like seeking information from different systems. Our recent survey data found that 50% of respondents spend at least 10 hours per week on non-value-add administrative work. Take that time back with project templates that can promote consistency and ensure on-time, on-budget real estate project delivery.
With features like Gantt charts, task templates, and automations, real estate projects can be managed much more efficiently. Templates for similar projects use historical data to quickly populate shareholders, locations, and resources – removing the time spent looking for information when you need it.
Centralize your information
Don’t waste time looking for information and working on tasks off of spreadsheets and other manual systems. A centralized view of all portfolio data will mean more time executing on information and focusing on work that drives results. Customized views of relevant data across your portfolio can compare key information like service requests and budgets, and bring about new insights instead of requiring tedious manual work.
Organizations like Foodstuffs New Zealand are managing their $3 billion real estate portfolio with Quickbase, empowering them to deliver work on time and on budget. We can’t wait to share our newest capabilities at MRI Ascend that will allow organizations to have similar outcomes in managing and expanding their real estate portfolios.
